Are we more or less the people who live in peace?

Written by: Lorena Canales González

Are we more or less the people who live in peace?I constantly ask myself this question.

When we are presented with different opportunities or paths, we are faced with making decisions that make us consider certain things. Some of us give priority to what we feel. Does this opportunity go hand in hand with my essence? Is it going to help me feel fulfilled @? Am I going to enjoy it?

But others give priority to the rational. How does it guide me to meet my goals? What other doors can taking this opportunity open for me? Why should I take it? Why not?

Both paths, the sentimental and the rational, are correct. But I think that before we ask ourselves anything, we must ask ourselves the question: Is he going to give me peace?

I find it incredible to think and know that the most extreme thoughts and feelings exist within us, and external situations and people are the ones who awaken them. If we want to feel sad, we can, because sadness already exists within us. The same with anger, happiness, courage and peace. ALL, without exception, have peace within us, and if we don't feel it, it's just a matter of waking it up.

But, how do you wake up all that lives inside of us? I think the answer is obvious: taking care of your environment. We must take care of our environment, our relationships and our routine. In everyday life there are moments that awaken these feelings in us. The mood with which you wake up, the desire with which you do things, the time you dedicate to your favorite activities, the call you make with the person you love, the songs you listen to, the food you eat, the conversations you you have, the friends you frequent the most.

If we all took care of our environment and put our energy into everything that awakens the peace we already have within, we could be more of those who live in peace. And from a state of peace, we would make the right decisions to be and do what we wish

To finish, I suppose you can ask yourself, how do I know if I am at peace? I think the best way to know this answer is to identify your emotional, mental and physical state most of the time. These are some questions you can ask yourself to find out. Are you calm? Do you tend to be optimistic or pessimistic? Do you pay much attention to the opinion of others? Do you base your decisions on the opinions of others? Do you want to run away from the place where you are? You are well? Do you live happily?

Reflect on these questions and remember that peace already exists within you, it is only a matter of awakening it.
