Peace can be such a valuable addition to our daily experience. Just a dash of peace a day can reduce stress and anxiety in our lives. It can really make a big difference in helping us to relax and enjoy the flow of life.
One of the things you can learn to do is give yourself peace. Instead of wait for it, instead of hope for it, you can actually give it to yourself regularly. You don't have to wait for the circumstances of your life to line up just right so you can relax and feel peace.
Giving yourself peace is simple. One way we'll focus on now takes just three to five minutes a day. On your own journey of self growth can you give yourself three minutes a day to harness the power of peace in your life?
Here is a simple peace practice. It is called "peacefully remaining" or "generous spaciousness." You sit alone and quiet for at least three minutes and peacefully remain with whatever shows up in your awareness. You can have your eyes open or closed. You can do this in your car before you go in to work, at lunch, or whenever.
Whatever thoughts you are having, you allow them. You don't try to change them or make them different. Whatever emotions you are having, you allow them. You peacefully remain with them. You don't try to have different feelings. For at least three minutes, you practice giving your consciousness some generous spaciousness. Whatever arises you allow it to be there without struggle or effort.
The thing is, we are usually at war with what is. We are usually trying to manipulate and change our thoughts and feelings to "better" ones. In this 3 minute practice you do the exact opposite on purpose. You just allow your thoughts and emotions to be the way they are. You just breathe and notice them, giving them space, remaining with them peacefully.
Giving peace to yourself in this way can change your world. Just a few minutes a day of peacefully remaining can begin to change your life. If you want to change the world and have it be more peaceful, start with yourself.
