The Power Of Inner Peace

We want inner peace, but we don’t know how to get there. Inner peace has the power to change our lives. It is what we need to live a better life. If we can’t live a peaceful life, what do we do?

We can make peace with ourselves. How? You can make peace with your life by living your own life. Don’t focus on what is not making you happy. It is what we have to have if we are to live a peaceful life. No matter how great your life is materially, if you are not at peace with yourself, you will not be happy with your outside world.

“Inner peace is the key: if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility.”- Dalai Lama

To make yourself really happy, to make peace with yourself, you must do the right things. For example, if you see someone who is hurting, if you see someone who needs help, do what is within your power. Help people with love.

According to Dalai Lama, “Without this inner peace, no matter how comfortable your life is materially, you may still be worried, disturbed or unhappy because of circumstances.” He is right. Money can’t buy you inner peace. Money can’t buy you happiness. Money cannot buy you health. But it does make people comfortable.

It is good to have money, but it can’t buy you inner peace. If you want inner peace, it is your responsibility to live your own life. If you can live your own life, peace will follow you.
