WHAT IS “PEACE OF MIND”?
Is there a difference between “peace of mind’ and “peace of Spirit”?
I say yes!
So, what is the relationship of “spirit and mind” The Spirit is that strong quiet Inner Voice while
the mind is the soul, a composite made up of the brain, the emotions, and the will.
Consider this observation made by many professionals on this topic. This observation is the influence one can have on one’s close animal pets. How to interact and speak to them can reveal much about what your state of being is, that is, the state of your soul and the state of your spirit.
Is there anything of this relationship as to health in our bodies?
Next, strongly consider this. What does this mean, “My peace I give to you but not as the world
gives?” It must mean that there are different “kinds” of peace. And also these different kinds of peace have different roots, qualities, realities, and thus different values and standings. Some are brief and somewhat empty because they are tied to the (soul) feelings (emotions) the present brain function and the momentary state of one’s will. On the other side, some are more long- lasting as they are tied more deeply to the heart state the inner identity force of a person.
Without true peace of mind that originates in the heart then everything of the outside at one time or another bothers us, causes conflict in our souls, causes anxiety to surmount itself over issues making them monumental rather than something small and insignificant that in the majority of times is all they are. Here for just a moment and then they are gone unless we make them, that is, give them preeminence and give them the dominant priority of status. Just consider and take into account the words that come out of YOUR mouth when that other driver does something bad in front of you or you are at the shopping mall and others do not behave as you think they should. Need I go on? It is then you will know the level and quality of your “peace” within.
You see no one, nothing from the outside is going to be the enabler of your peace. Therefore, no one nor nothing outside of yourself can be blamed for your lack of peace and with that your stability to be able to stand tall and firm in a way of being unmoved, resolute, and being able to have “joy” in your daily life.
CONSIDER THESE POINTS:
The world we live in is in a constant search for peace. It is like an obsession. We live in an age of entitlement, a me-first mindset, full of anxiety, full of fear, full of worry, and high levels of anger. There is trouble, turmoil, and war, or even rumors of war all around us. There is betrayal, violence, and rioting everywhere.
Consequently, everywhere you look there is the search for peace a call for “peace”. However, all of it is tied to people’s efforts. Organizations and military forces set about to search for peace. There is a continual great effort to search for peace but it seems elusive like there is no lasting peace available.
WHY? Maybe because peace is a condition of the heart the inner spirit of man. Maybe peace does not come from all these human efforts but is that to which one arrives when they get their heart settled and affirmed in truth. That is, take peace as a gift, taking and receiving it from a higher source than your own efforts.
Peace comes from the surrender of all human efforts to make things happen and to make things come out as one pleases for their own benefit. It is casting away the cares of life from oneself knowing that no personal effort can make it happen but just to surrender it all to a higher force, throw it off cast it off from your spirit, your inner self, knowing that you are not the “master” but there is a higher force that is.
The biggest admission that one must achieve in one’s soul, – mind, will, and emotions – is that
“I do not have the power to make peace happen” therefore let me surrender to an outside spirit force (God) that can help me achieve the goal. This then is the composite of, “my peace I give not as the world gives”
Peace is an internal component of your spirit. It is not some intellectual exercise or some mental process that emanates from forced willful action. You are at peace or you are not. It is not something that you can maneuver yourself to establish through mind or will. It is a “Part” of you through the state of your inner man the spirit. You either ARE at peace or you are NOT at peace. Thus you either spread peace around you or you do not.
Things and situations and peoples around do not dictate peace. Your situation or position in life does not establish your peace.
BUT peace can establish you, it is what will establish your state of mind emotions and soul. All too often we think of peace as the cessation of stress, difficulties, daily challenges, and people challenges. So be of good cheer none of those things are going to change long enough to establish a long-lasting peace because the true quality of peace IS longstanding and is as long-lasting as your life, tied to that spirit within you.
It is this inner peace that will energize confidence, faith, steadfastness, comfort, and joy. This is a state of being that births and brings forth stability, calm, confidence, true joy, and endurance in life. True peace is not man-made but God instilled.
Now on a side note consider for an instance Compumatrix:
1. It is being developed and built with the one singular objective, that is, to help people in all venues of
2. Thus it is being developed to make life more viable and abundant and give the individual more ease
3. It is set to be an island of peace amid an ocean of turmoil called this world.
4. It has been around for over 15 years and has undergone many substantial changes.
– All these changes have been precipitated because of the type of business it
is. It has a goal to establish itself with the undertaking of stability and longevity.
However, admittedly it has been a seed ground to cause for some turmoil and but for others
5. Thus, one then can speculate as to the factor of peace for some and stress and turmoil for
others. So, here we have the basics of stress and peace differences. Peace remedies the
situation while stress will tend to destroy and give up.
6. So what are we talking about? I think we are talking about the effort to establish a system, a program
that in essence is built to be operational in lives to bring viable stability and ease of mind that in
turn helps to formulate the essence, the product of peace.
I trust you can be a perspective discerner of what I write here.
