Inner peace, this is a question we should ask ourselves, before we ask anyone else, do we know what inner peace is, and do we truly feel inner peace, how many of us could answer this with our hand on our hearts ? It really is a difficult question, this is not just relating to us and our personal circle and even so, it would be difficult to answer, are we 100% at peace with all that is around us, lets take the first outer circle, the one that is nearly part of us, our direct link with family and friends………….are we at peace ? are the differences we have spoken out loud, is everyone allowed their say, or is there a dominant side that in fact is not dominant at all, they are the weakest link, as they just hide and let things be swept under the carpet, this is not the way to do things, a person who does this, will never have inner peace……..and your life will be very turbulent, you walk on egg shells most of the time, and that cannot be good for anyone, it will affect your nervous system and will cause general bad feeling all round………….. if things are cleared and talked about in a normal manner it should allow things to continue in a positive manner, moving forward and at peace within and with others. How we handle this, will give us the ability for future times, it is important to be calm, to listen to your heart and your inner voice, to remember the golden rule when speaking to others, say what you would like to be said to you, or at least in the tone that would not offend you, at times when we try to put a situation right, our nerves take us down a road, we maybe do not want to go down, and this starts it going the wrong way, before maybe anything is really said………..everyone shuld be given the right to explain themselves if they so wish, as very often when we think we know or presume to know what the other person is thinking, doing or even saying………..we can be very wrong, we are no one to make decisions for others and dictate to what they should say or think. We should also never lose respect for that other person, no one deserves to have that taken away from them, just because you do not agree. When we try to deliberately hurt others, you must know, that in fact you are only hurting yourself , you may not see it at the time, but it is true, so always think, to listen to someone costs nothing, and it could be very important to you and to them.
As we go beyond our family outer ring, the basic rules are all the same, it is easier at times to discuss a point with someone who you are not as involved with as with family and friends, and to listen and to respect are of the same importance, as you go out into life, try to keep your inner peace, it is important for you, as it is for others.
