The Secret of the Power of Peace

What is the strength, brother? Balance and peace of mind are the sources of our self-confidence and power management. The secret of the power of peace.

Most people would agree that they lack love. But why do we need peace of mind? Love and peace are inseparable. Love is not possessing another person. This is a state of harmony with the whole world and, above all, with oneself. It is the assurance that you are moving in the right direction. If we seek love, we find peace of mind, and if we seek peace, we find love.

First of all, peace is balance. The number one task for people involved in martial arts is to maintain balance. When you start doing karate, you will learn that strength depends on balance and a “cold” head. It is worth adding emotions, and your song is sung.

Balance and peace of mind are the sources of our self-confidence. Calm does not mean sleepy! Calmness is about controlling power, not resisting it. Calmness is the ability to see the big picture without focusing on the details.

If you want to protect yourself from all adversity, you have chosen the wrong planet. Peace and confidence can only be found within yourself. There is no stability in the surrounding world, everything around is in a state of eternal variability. How can we deal with the unpredictability of life? Just by accepting it! Tell yourself, “I love surprises. It's great when you know that at any moment some kind of surprise can happen.

Make a decision: "Whatever happens, I can handle it." Agree with yourself: “If I get fired, I will find a job with a freer schedule. If I get hit by a bus, I won't be here anymore." This is not a joke. This is the truth of life. The earth is a dangerous place. People are born and die here. But that doesn't mean you have to live like a cowardly rabbit.

How to achieve peace of mind? To find peace of mind, first of all, you need to change your worldview. And the habit of giving yourself a break every day can help with this. People who have achieved peace of mind often perform certain rituals. Some pray, others meditate, some walk along the seashore at dawn. Everyone finds their own way of relaxation. It helps us better understand ourselves and learn about the world around us.

Life will remain a struggle if we insist on it. Modern Western civilization has taught us to constantly strain. I do not argue with the fact that “you can’t even pull the fish out of the pond without difficulty.” But before we start doing anything, we need to stop fighting everything and everything. We grew up believing in resistance. We tend to push events and push people. We exhaust ourselves, and this does more harm than good.

A young man traveled all over Japan to meet a great martial artist. Having obtained an audience, he asked the Master, “I want to be the best. How long will it take me?" And the sensei answered: "Ten years." The student asked, “Master, I am very capable, I will work day and night. How long will it take me?" And the Master answered: “Twenty years!”

Why do we need relaxation? Almost everything we do in life is a race for results. But deep relaxation, meditation or prayer helps us to look at life in a new way. We expect that the future will bring us many pleasant moments.

However, our attention should still be focused on the present. As we practice deep relaxation, we will begin to notice that some of the qualities acquired during the exercise gradually become habitual and change our daily life. We become calmer, we have intuition.

We all have an inner voice, but it is weak and barely audible. When life gets too hectic and noisy, we stop hearing it. But as soon as we muffle extraneous sounds, everything changes. Our intuition is always with us, but often we do not pay any attention to it.

I have long noticed that I feel more balanced and confident when I find time for relaxation, meditation or prayer. Quite pleased with the result, I soon stop praying and meditating. Gradually my life becomes more and more tense, I come to despair. Peace is leaving me. Then I resume my relaxing activities, and life gradually improves.

Many people pass through this circle. From this we can conclude: "If you do not have time for relaxation - it is absolutely necessary for you."

Meditation will save you more time than you spend on it. Make it a habit to tune yourself the way you tune a musical instrument. Twenty minutes every day - so that the strings of your soul sound clean and harmonious.

Wake up every morning with the intention of being calm and balanced. Some days you will be able to hold out until the evening, and sometimes only until breakfast. But if maintaining peace of mind becomes the goal, gradually you will learn this art.

Forces of nature. Have you ever noticed that you can wander all day in the forest and feel the influx of strength? Or spend the morning at the mall and feel like you've been run over by a truck? Everything around vibrates, be it grass, concrete, plastic or polyester.

We capture it. Gardens and forests have a healing vibration - they restore our energy. The vibration of concrete malls is of a different type: they suck energy. The vibration of cathedrals is directed upwards. In smoky bars and strip clubs, you will leave the lion's share of your vitality.

It doesn't take a genius to understand that our health and attitude depend on the elusive energy of the environment. When we are full of energy, we easily manage to resist illness and the bad mood of others. If the energy is at zero, we attract depression and illness to ourselves.

Greetings, desert corner… It cannot be considered a mere coincidence that in cultures around the world there is a tradition and reverence for solitude. For the period of initiation, both the American Indian and the African Bushman left their tribes, hiding in the mountains or forests in order to understand their destiny.

Great Teachers - Christ, Buddha, Mohammed - drew inspiration from solitude, as did the millions of monks, mystics and seekers of truth who followed in their footsteps. Each of us needs such a treasured place where phones do not ring, where there is no TV or Internet. Let it be a nook in the bedroom, a corner on the balcony or a bench in the park - this is our territory for creativity and reflection.

Since the 17th century, science has been armed with Sir Isaac Newton's method: if you want to understand something, smash it to smithereens and study the pieces. If this does not add clarity, divide into even smaller parts... In the end, you will get to the bottom of how the Universe works.

But is it true? Take Shakespeare's sonnet and divide it into nouns, prepositions and pronouns, then break the words into letters. Will the author's intent become clearer to you? Lay out the "Mona Lisa" on strokes. What will it give you? Science works wonders, but it also dissects. The mind breaks things apart. The heart brings them together.

Health and well-being come when we look at the world as a whole. This fully applies to our body, and to our life, and to all of humanity.
