Importance Of Living Peacefully In The World
Peace is a product of a positive mental attitude, while violence is the result of negative thinking. Peace is the natural state of society; violence is the unnatural state. Peace is as much in accordance with nature’s plan as violence is against it.
When peaceful conditions prevail in a society all activities take place in their proper form. but if the atmosphere of peace is distributed, the normal functioning of society is disrupted. this law applies to man, as well as to the entire universe.
A believer is necessarily a lover of peace. In his mind faith and a desire for peace are so closely interlinked that, regardless of the circumstances, he will strive to the utmost for the maintainence of peace. He will bear the loss of anythingelse, but the loss of peace he will not endure. The life that the true believer desires in the world can be lived only in the propitious atmosphere which flowers in conditions of peace. Conditions of unrest breed a negative atmosphere, which to him is abhorrent. PEACE IS THUS CENTRAL TO THE LIFE OF THE BELIEVER. AND PEACE IS A UNIVERSAL LAW OF NATURE THAT IS BECAUSE GOD LOVES THE CONDITION OF PEACE, AND DISAPPROVES OF ANY STATE OF UNREST. GOD’S PREDILECTION FOR PEACE IS QUITE ENOUGH REASON FOR THE BELIEVER ALSO TO LOVE PEACE. IN NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL THE TRUE BELIEVER EVER TOLERATE THE DISRUPTION OF PEACE.
“Only Those Persons Can Live In Peace Who Are Ready To Remain Patient, Regardless Of The Circumstances.”
PEACEFUL REVOLUTION IS THE OUTCOME OF PEACEFUL THINKING. PEACEFUL MINDS MAKE FOR A PEACEFUL WORLD. A PEACEFUL SOCIETY IS A RESULT OF PEACEFUL PERSONS. THEREFORE, PEACE CAN BE ESTABLISHED ONLY WHEN EVERY SINGLE UNIT OF SOCIETY IS READY TO LIVE IN PEACE. ONLY THOSE PERSONS CAN LIVE IN PEACE WHO ARE READY TO REMAIN PATIENT, REGARDLESS OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES. THE FACT IS THAT EVERYONE IS BORN WITH DIFFERENT TASTES AND EVERYONE IS FREE TO FOLLOW HIS OWN AGENDA. THAT IS THE LAW OF NATURE, DUE TO WHICH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ESTABLISH UNIFORMITY IN SOCIETY.
IN SUCH A SITUATION, THE QUESTION ARISES AS TO HOW PEACE IS TO BE ESTABLISHED IN SOCIETY? THE ONLY ANSWER IS THE MAGIC THREE-LETTERED WORD: SABR(PATIENCE). SABR IS THE KEY TO HAVING A PEACEFUL SOCIETY. A PEACEFUL SOCIETY REQUIRES AVOIDANCE OF FRICTION, TOLERANCE, POSITIVE THINKING, AND THE ABILITY TO RETAIN ONE’S EMOTIONAL EQUILIBRIUM, EVEN WHEN PROVOKED.
PEACE IS THE ONLY RELIGION FOR BOTH MAN AND THE UNIVERSE. IN A PEACEFUL ENVIRONMENT ALL GOOD THINGS ARE POSSIBLE, WHEREAS IN THE ABSENCE OF PEACE, WE CANNOT ACHIEVE ANYTHING OF A POSITIVE NATURE, EITHER AS INDIVIDUALS, OR AS A COMMUNITY, OR EVEN AT A NATIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL LEVEL.
A PEACEFUL LIFE IS YOURS WHEN YOU REMOVE EGO AND DESIRES COMPLETELY AND VISUALIZE YOURSELF AS A PEACEFUL BEING. IF WE LOOK AT OUR LIFE AS A SERIES OF EXPERIENCES, WE WILL APPRECIATE THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR THOUGHTS AND EMOTIONS AS WE GO FROM ONE DAY TO ANOTHER. EACH DAY IS FILED WITH NUMEROUS EXPERIENCES, SOME NEW AND SOME REPETITIVE. IF WE TAKE SOME MINUTES OUT EVERY DAY TO CONNECT WITH OURSELVES AND JUST BE STILL, WE WILL BE ABLE TO GAIN PERSPECTIVE AND FEEL COMFORTABLE—IRRESPECTIVE OF THE GOINGS-ON AROUND US. WHEN YOU ARE PEACEFUL, YOU ARE ABLE TO THINK CLEARLY AND CONTROL NEGATIVE EMOTIONS A LOT BETTER THAN YOU CAN IN A DISTURBED STATE OF MIND. This way, one can also make wise decisions related to the different aspects of life: relationships, finances(besides others), thanks to a stable and peaceful mind.
In fact, all aspects of a person’s life benefit from spending some peaceful and quite time alone. when one is contained, still and peaceful, one can give one’s best to everything one undertakes since the mind develops the power to focus with dedication.
