VISHWAJIVANREKHA .........Peace Of Mind....Article-II /Part-I

Peace of mind is the most important commodity in earthern life. It seems that most of us are in a state of perpetual restlessness. On analyzing the causes of this restlessness, we have ventured to find for four solutions that have to be followed religiously if we are grave about getting perfect peace of mind. A) Never get in the way of others:- It is found, most of us create our own problems by interfering too often in others' affairs. We do so because somehow we have convinced ourselves that our way is the best way, our judgment is the perfect logic, and those who do not conform to our thinking must be criticized and steered to the right direction, our direction. This kind of attitude on our part denies the existence of individuality and consequently the existence of God, for God has created each one of us in a unique way. No two human beings can think or act in exactly the same way. All men or women act the way they do because they are prompted to do so by the godly within them. There is divinity to look after everything. So no need to be bothered B) Forget and Pardon:- This is the most powerful tool to peace of mind. We habitually nurture ill feeling inside our heart for the person who troubles us. We forget that the insult or injury was done to us once but by nourishing the grievance we go on excavating the wound forever. Therefore it is essential that we cultivate the art of forgiving and forgetting. Believe in the justice of God and the principle of Karma. Let Him judge the act of the one who insulted you. Life is too short to waste in such trifles. Forget, Pardon, and walk on. C) Do not desire for more to be focused:- This world is full of selfish people. They hardly ever praise anybody without selfish intention. They may praise you today because you are wealthy and have control but no sooner you are powerless, they will forget your attainment and start criticizing you. Moreover, no one is perfect. Then why do you value the words of praise of another mortal like you? Why do you have desire for more to be focused ? Trust in yourself. People's praises do not last long. Perform your duties ethically and sincerely and leave the rest to God. D) Free From Desirous:- We all have experienced how jealousy can upset our peace of mind. You know you work harder than your colleagues in the office but they get promotions, you do not. You started a company several years ago but you are not as successful as your neighbour whose business is only one or two years old. Should you be jealous? No, remember everybody's life is formed by his previous Karma that has now become his destiny. If you are destined to be rich, not all the world can stop you. If you are not so destined, no one can help you either. Nothing will be gained by blaming others for your misfortune. Jealousy will not get you anywhere, but will only give you restlessness. We think these four steps certainly prove to be a matured one. (Part:-I)
