“What’s the meaning of peace? Or to say what’s the meaning of peaceful life? Are they only the words?”
No, these are not just words. They have a bigger meaning in human life. A situation or a period of time in which there is no war or violence in a country or area where the state of mind is calm or quiet termed as peace. And then we can say a person is living a peaceful life.
Now one can say, ” I’m very happy. I’m very very happy. I’m extremely happy. But my mind is not at peace.” It’s not wondering that a happy man is peaceless. It’s quite natural. If my mind is not at peace and I’m disturbed for no reason it’s actually very natural. Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be. As simple as this sounds, the procedure of finding peace is a great mystery to mankind. The persons who solved that mystery are not alive because death is the ultimate peace.
But we can’t dial any number to contact with death or we can’t send any mail to the god of death to snatch our life. We can’t do that. So we can’t achieve the ultimate peace in our living life. So what can we do to bring our eternal peace back? We can do a lot of things but at first, just take a deep breath and say the famous dialogue of Amir Khan, ” All’s well.” You will actually receive positive energy from this. Then just before proceeding any work do meditate once. If you are a student doing meditation is necessary to bring your mind back from the world tour.
There are a lot of things which a man can do for himself by himself. Typically this is called, “Self Help” or, ” Self Reliance “. For example, a housewife can prepare food for the family without anyone’s assistance. She can clean the rooms of the house, wash clothes all by herself. By doing so she finds her peace of mind.
The ant is a very common insect as we know. They are known for their busy and hardworking natures. Bee is also common. The honey that it makes tastes very sweet and it’s very rich in food values. The wax of their hives is used to make candles. The butterflies are the treat to our eyes. The sweet and sovereign call of Cuckoo fills the whole spring. The owls guarded our house. The crow removed dirty and rotten things from the locality. The dog is the most lovable pet. The Cow gives us nutritious milk which is the main food of a newborn. They all help the men without expecting a little. Being selfish is a great issue of a peaceless life. Selflessness is the biggest target of being peaceful.
Every day we meet and mix with a lot of people but everybody is not of our type. Some became our type and both of us grow confidence in each other. They are our friends. The constant and loyal friendship leads a man to a peaceful life.
A close-knit bond between two people can begin with this friendship. Whether it is a friendship between two males, two females, or one male and one female, these friendships will develop into L_O_V_E which is difficult to define, difficult to measure, and difficult to understand, difficult to modify also. When the power of love overcomes the love of power there will be peace. But sometimes this peace became an obsession and then the mental peace is gone in vain. So in relationships that trust, that bond is very necessary to grow both of your love and peace.
Now come to the anger zone. When you feel angry, count to ten before saying anything. Then take a deep breath and ask yourself what’s wrong with the anger. Anger is something that might break a relation, snatch a life, etc. So this anger is a great disturbance to our peace. When you see someone in trouble or the person is lost, confused, upset, or has fallen, don’t act like a blind. Help that person. Because helping others is a great virtue. That would also make you happy and then you will find your peace in this.
Respect and regard people who love you or hate you, tease you or help you. Because obedience is the key to success and wins other’s minds which would let you find your peace. Peace is a product of a positive attitude, whereas violence is the result of negative thinking. So never think negatively. Always think positive. If everyone agrees to put their ego aside and to maintain peace on their lifestyle then nothing but greatness will arise. When you have peace in your mind, you can live side by side with everyone, trying to create something beautiful or useful for your own society.
With peace, you will not spend your mind, your energy, and your money on the bad things. Instead, you can spend them on trying to innovate something that can bring welfare to your society. You can hold charities to help funding education in poor students. When peaceful conditions prevail in a society all good activities take place in their proper form. But if the atmosphere is disturbed, the normal functioning of society is disrupted and the peace is lost.
Moreover competitive and equitable economic development, which ultimately has a positive impact on the whole society is achieved by a peaceful mind of everyone. No country can develop economically without peaceful coexistence among its societies. Say “I am sorry” though you made no mistakes. To bring peace in your life you must be able to bear with a lot of nonsense in the surroundings and be calm in any situation. See if you haven’t Inner peace, you can’t bring that to your Society or rather to say your community. So it’s very much important to be peaceful, to be responsible more.
Peace is the desire of every beating heart. It is the hope of every family, every newborn to breathe peacefully, to serve the peaceful nation, the promise of every vote session, the pulse of every culture, the goal of every religion. Peace is the ultimate response to the penultimate violence that provides the final conflicts of our world. Where war destroys and tears apart when the river of blood flows, when the near and dear ones are taken away from us, the saplings of peace is seen. 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 with altogether.
So thus we can install the term Peace to our society app finally forever without conflict or any other viruses.
