As human beings, we’re wired to pay more attention to our external world.
The problem is, when we only look outside for safety we lose the opportunity of working on our internal world.
We can never be truly happy until we start caring about our inner peace.
Because our internal world is not tangible, it makes it harder to make it a priority.
So if you can’t see it, how can you find out what’s going on inside?
You see, your external world is pretty much the reflection of your internal world. To see what’s inside, you can observe what’s outside.
When your home or office becomes messy and cluttered you get a sign. It’s a sign that your internal world could be experiencing a chaos.
It’s also hard to get angry and pissed off when you have inner peace. So when you feel these emotions you get another sign.
Emotions translate your states. By paying attention to them you can learn more about your internal world and how that affects your external world.
The thing to remember is that you never have full control over your external world but you always have full control over your internal world.
It’s also your internal world that shapes your reality. You go through life based on your own emotions and experiences. It’s unique to you.
Like everything in life, when you become aware of the importance of your inner peace, you will turn it into a priority and you make an effort to achieve it.
Your inner peace starts by accepting that you experience life in a different way than anyone else. You should realize that the sky may look green to some people.
To maintain your inner peace you need to accept that some people don’t see things the way you do and it’s not their fault, it’s what they know.
Life is a collection of your experiences. No one else but you experiences life the way you do. And it’s your job to face this truth and be OK with it.
Acceptance has everything to do with your ability to achieve inner peace. When you don’t accept the world as is you put your inner peace at risk.
By letting go of the need to change your external world, you become free. You get more time to work on yourself and the things that you can control.
No amount of money can buy you inner peace. It’s not a task to leave for later. It’s a decision you make and once achieved no one can take it away from you.
In life you can move to another country, change jobs, go through a separation or even death of a loved one. But if you’re focused on keeping your inner peace, you’ll have a much easier time going through them.
Your inner peace is a defence mechanism against whatever that could happen now or in the future. And like anything that matters, it needs time and attention.
I hope this has inspired you to realize why you inner peace matters and what you can do to make it priority worth pursuing.
