Mindfulness, at its core is a Buddhist meditation technique and has exploded into popularity and relevance over the past decade. What was once an exclusive practice for Buddhists is now a global phenomenon and had reached its peak popularity in the west. Though it has been disconnected from its original routes and adapted for everyday use, many do not clearly understand the original beliefs at the forefront of it. This was inevitability for the practice to reach a larger audience. While the wisdom is still beautiful and powerful, the practice has become a show of its previous self.
Inner peace is that mindset where one is in equilibrium. It’s that point where ones actions and thoughts are stable, and everything one does is done in a fluid and balanced way. It’s the point where one is in harmony with oneself and therefore is in harmony with the entire universe. This is something we all should strive to pursue; because once inner peace is attained, life becomes a whole lot better.
What is peace? Peace according to the dictionary is “the absence of mental stress or anxiety” So the empty spaces in life where you have no pressure or worry is what peace actually is. In this present modern age finding peace in your life is treated as a fad or as something that can’t really be achieved. This happens because nobody cares to wonder or even try to achieve calm in life.
