Remember the last time your life was a mess and someone who loves you told you that all is going to be well? You probably didn’t believe it back then, but, as time went by, it turned out to be true.
It is a powerful phrase, for when you hear it, it always sounds shallow – that is because its wisdom reveals with time. At some point you think you have no way out – you run out of life inspiration, your heart is broken, or, even worse, you experience a beloved person’s loss.
You cannot find peace and life becomes a restless journey through realities you don’t want to be a part of. What amazes me and what gives me strength to fight in such moments is this truth – eventually all is well.
When all is well, we feel lighter – the grass is greener, the sky is bluer; the first thing you do in the morning is smile. When all is well, the world has a meaning. Inner peace is something we`re born with but we need to quiet our minds in order to feel this fountain of peace.
It is not something you will learn in school. It is not even something your parents will teach you. Inner peace is inside all of us and everybody has their own way of finding it.
No matter what shape it is in, we all need it in order to be happy and feel complete.
Some people run. When you run, you can feel your physical relation to this world. You feel the wind; your feet can feel each cobble. When you run, you have time to think – you think of the situation that put you out of your peace and you replay it in your head.
Then, after a mile (or many more miles), your mind becomes clear and your heart opens and you accept each truth for what it is – a truth.
You don’t have the power to change it. But you have the power to learn from it and live with it.
Other people meditate. They shut the doors to the outer world and close their mind. I think it is then when they see the situation clearly.
I think it is then when they realize what a tiny part of the Universe we are and yet what an important one we are.
I believe it is there that they learn to be patient. And I am sure it is there that they embrace reality and choose to be happy. For happiness is a choice.
Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, says:
The question of real, lasting world peace concerns human beings, so basic human feelings are also at its roots. Through inner peace, genuine world peace can be achieved. In this the importance of individual responsibility is quite clear; an atmosphere of peace must first be created within ourselves, then gradually expanded to include our families, our communities, and ultimately the whole planet.
When was the last time you were told “All is going to be well”? How do you find the peace in your heart? What do you feel when your outer world shows you that all is well…?
Would really love to hear your thoughts on this topic..:)))
