Be true to yourself

"People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within." bouquet

This is sooo true! applause bouquet
Most of the precious things are not material. Happiness, Peace of mind, contentment, Love. All are found within. And only the blessed ones find it in time. Yet we keep finding it through material stuff and end up unhappy. doh
you are truly wise and correct. we fill our lives with posessions and people but nothing lasts forever , so just depend upon yourself
Right on. I have wasted many years discovering this truth it sure is a nice when you start to live it.
This is so true!
Inner peace is priceless and it can only be found through deep soul searching. One must have inner-peace: not only before the storm, or after the storm but DURING the storm. Without self love, appreciation, and understanding of one-self. You can never truly love someone else if you don't know how to love your self first. We all grow spiritually and intellectually as we live our lives. Our paradyme or what we perceive as reality will be based on past/current experiences, intellectual abilities, where we have been, done, tasted, seen, etc. People may not always perceive things the same way you view them. I personally believe that being open minded, having humility, and treating people the way you want to be treated will always have a positive outcome in your life. If you are a lost soul looking to figure out your purpose in life, start by looking at yourself and see how you have contributed to this world positively to make a difference for our future generations... If you find out that you are nothing more than an oxygen bandit then it's time to refocus and start working towards your new goals.... peace
Thank you for all your beautiful comments. Happiness always comes from the actions & decisions we make, that's why it's important to make good life choices, to be happy & content in ourselves. Inner peace is not hard to have & let me help you. We can bring peace into our minds daily by limiting the amount of negativity around us that agitate it, like reading bad news, watching violent tv, arguing etc. Take the opportunities to do something positive, think about where you spend your time.

Control all those thoughts, decide which thoughts to follow & which to reject. Simplify your life, avoid cluttering it with unnecessary activities & worries. We find time to work 8 hour plus days, so find 15 minutes to rest you mind & stop your thoughts in quietness. You cannot buy peace; you must know how to manufacture it within, in the stillness of your daily practises in meditation.” Plenty of books to teach you how (the answer to most of life's problems is written....)

Be immuned to criticism & flattery, you can't rely on other people's judgements of you, you need to be confident in how you feel & value yourself no matter what is said. Be Active, when we help others we forget the sense of self. Inner peace depends on the wellbeing of others also. Don't criticise others but approach people with a peaceful attitude & this is what you will see in return. Be kind whenever possible, it is always possible.

I wish everyone an enjoyably wonderful life xoxo
