The world is quiet here- Lemony Snicket

Beach we

“Dear Ocean, thank you for making us feel tiny, humbled, inspired, and salty …all at once” unknown

I always love relaxing on the beach.

Love relaxing on a parasols

For me, it’s the quiet place to keep my monkey mind at rest, which is otherwise impossible to quieten.

Why?

My friend, our lives are full of anxious moments.

You are not sure when you are at peace with yourself.

So this is what I do.

You can also try.

“When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.”  Rainer Maria Rilke

After relaxing what do I do?

I just take a walk and my mind becomes more peaceful.

“Nothing soothes the soul like a walk on the beach” unknown

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Contentment

The image below is that of a hut in an Indian Village.

Village Hut

And the person owning this hut told me he is very happy because he can sleep peacefully, and he knows it’s real value since he comes across everyday people without a roof over their heads.

What does this teach us?

“As you get older, you’ll realise that a £250 watch and a £25 watch both tell the same time.

A Michael Kors wallet and a Primark wallet hold the same amount of money.

A £500,000 and a £100,000 house host the same loneliness.

True happiness is not found in materialistic things.”   Fuad Alakbarov

Of course one need not grow old to understand this truth.

What do you think of the quote below?

“For every dollar spent on luxuries, someone somewhere goes hungry.”
Abhijit Naskar

in other words, are we unable to differentiate between luxury and necessity and go on wasting our money, time and energy in possessing materials for sensual pleasure?

Your necessity is someone’s luxury

While you complain about your life, there is someone dreaming of it!

What is contentment?

“Contentment doesn’t mean that I desire nothing. But rather it’s the simple decision to be happy, with what I have”  Paula Rollo

But the present-day definition of ‘contentment’ is different

Everybody thinks that being popular in social media brings happiness and contentment.

The more number of followers, shares and likes, the greater the happiness!

Unfortunately you are revealing too much of yourself!

My friend, it’s a recipe for disaster!

Going offline is the true meaning of contentment.

  • Offline is the ‘New Luxury’
  • Offline is peace of mind.
  • Offline is the new definition of happiness.
  • Offline reduces your stress level.
  • Offline improves family bonding
  • People stopped visiting a sex therapist
  • You reveal less about yourself
  • You have plenty of time to attend to your personal work and ambitions.
  • You an fulfill your desires in a fruitful way.

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Friendly Friday Challenge – Quiet Places

“Wisdom grows in quiet places”  Austin O’Malley

In these chaotic times, each one of us need a quiet place.Some love interacting with Mother Nature or spending time alone and  for some, quiet place means interacting with the Almighty.

Each one comes out with their own explanation and the point here is one must be left alone to seek inner peace.

“Never underestimate the healing power of a quiet moment in the Garden” unknown

Temple in the midst of Nature

“Every calm and quiet place is the true temple of the wise man!” Mehmet Murat ildan

Peace of mind vs Piece of mind

Peace of mind vs Piece of mind

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”       Dalai Lama

What is peace of mind ?

Peace of mind is…. inner tranquility or inner peace,absence of turmoil,having sound sleep in the night.

What about piece of mind ?

Piece of mind is … expression of somebody’s thoughts,rather some kind of advice or opinion.

piece of mind

To give someone ” a piece of your mind” often results in giving your “peace of mind” away unknown     Image credits-Boston University

Which category you belong?

1.Are you the one,willing to give peace of mind not just to yourself,but also to others? or

2.Are you the one,just love to give your piece of mind to each and every one,whether required  or not ?

In other words

Are you a big talker (giving your piece of mind ) or a  listener (comforting others)

Are you a non stop talker or a patient listener ?

As far as I am concerned ,I love to be a silent listener.

Silly question

Do blog articles/Social media etc  give us Peace of mind or Piece of mind ?

Please share your thoughts.

My challenge…..Can you vouch that you have ‘Peace Of Mind’ ?

Peace of Mind,Happiness,happy

Searching for Peace of mind at Lord’s abode.

Present day life style makes us think that leading a ‘peaceful life’ is a distant dream…and I am glad you realised the truth.

The day you are born,you know that life brings lot of stress.At the end, you realise that it is impossible to be At peace with your mind,since you are aware that your mind is like a monkey….restless all the time resulting in piece of mind

” If you are depressed,you live in the past..
if you are anxious, you live in the future..
but if you are at PEACE…you live in the present “
Lao Tzu

What is ‘ Peace Of Mind ?’ Aka ‘peace’ ?

Thesaurus Dictionary says- it is the absence of mental stress or anxiety.

Wikipedia talks of Inner Peace,referring to a state of being Mentally & Spiritually at peace with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress

Being at peace is considered by many to be healthy. Peace of mind is generally associated with bliss,happiness,and contentment.

But the question is how do you get the Peace Of Mind ?

Take my challenge and Try these 10 secrets, I am sharing and I am so sure it will be a disaster!
1.Keep calm and don’t be jealous.”Jeaulosy comes from,counting others blessings,instead of our own”Unknown
2.Don’t bite more than you can chew,because nobody looks attractive,spitting it back. ‘Carrol Bryant’
3.Don’t work for recognition,but do work,worthy of recognition ‘H.Jackson Brown Jr.’
4.Never tell your problem to anyone. 20% don’t care & 80% glad that you have them ‘Quora’
5.If you live for having it all,what you have is never enough. ‘Vicki Robin’
6.“Less is not necessarily more. Just enough is more.”
Milton Glaser”
7.There is a story behing every person.There is a reason why they are the way they are.Think about that before you judge someone. ‘pinerest’.
8.Forgive & Forget,but never forget to forgive,you may find a happier heart is the key to a happier life ‘Mahatma Gandhi’
9.Never put off tomorrow,what you can do today. ‘Thomas Jefferson’
10.To keep the body in good health is a duty..otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear ‘ Buddha’

Wise men have given plenty of such advices,my guess is being,a human being it is impossible to get peace of mind,even if you follow the wise sayings 100% and unfortunately for a change,I won the challenge !

Thank you so much for taking your time to go through and let me know if there is some more secrets to add.
