What’s The Price Tag of Inner Peace
Are we able to create truly peaceful lives, or can we only have short moments of peace?
If you ever lost the state of inner peace, and later were able to regain it – you know it is priceless, and you will never consciously do anything that would compromise it.
On the other hand, I wonder, if we even realize what inner peace is, until we lose it. Do we know it’s price unless we have to work to get it back? And the road back can be long and unbelievably hard.
It may involve spiritual work, money, therapies, mediators, forgiveness, mediums, letting go, mending… it may take as much as being on a threshold of ending your life. It may take lots of love and support from others; it may take a miracle.
I have put together my own system to support my inner peace. It’s based on many lessons. There is a cliché that says “there are no mistakes just lessons”, but we may not see the benefit until years later. I think that some of mine lessons were unnecessary, and only time can prove otherwise. Other lessons were gentle: I got the hint. I knew. I didn’t have to learn it the hard way.
One thing we gain for sure in such transformation, is that our integrity, mindfulness, values become so strong, that when we face a situation or a person that wants us to compromise – we will go thru it like a thunder. This is when others will call you names because you don’t give in.
Do you have ways to go over resentment, guilt, shame, confusion? Did you ever lost inner peace and somehow found your way back to life? If you can – please share your story in the comments below. But if that’s too open – email me, and let me know if I can share your story in the future (with details changed). If you go thru the transformation now, you must not give up. You may not believe it now but you can have again inner peace and even bliss.
