There’s a place we all go to find peace amongst chaos. For some, it’s resorting to God or whomever they believe in. For me I love to chant to Native American Peyote Healing chants. Whenever I feel distressed or upset I put on my cd of the peyote chants and it always helps me to find peace within myself and to calm my nerves. For some people they turn to whatever religion they believe in for comfort. Whatever it is we must all seek the one thing that brings us peace and calm within ourselves. Seek the one thing that will soothe your soul and make you feel better. Look for refuge to help give you strength in the times of your life that you need it the most.
“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”
― Dalai Lama XIV
I’ve never been more at peace with myself until now because before I struggled so hard to keep calm. I always let my nerves get the best of me and it would lead to bad decisions. There’s been always a struggle within myself that I couldn’t ever really conquer. When I had god in my life there seemed like there was a lot of understanding. I know longer had to deal with the burdens in my life. When I prayed it seemed like whatever I was going through didn’t even matter anymore. When I left the church and stopped praying, everything that I was struggling with before came back and life seemed to be harder. It wasn’t until I talked with my friend did I find that peace within myself once again.
Peace is not merely a distance goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. – Martin Luther King Jr.
You must try and find peace in the darkest and loneliest times of your life. Try to find the strength to pick yourself up and go forward. Nothing is ever easy but if you put your full effort into it, all that you struggled with will surely disappear. I know it wasn’t easy for me and I still struggle sometimes but I always turn back to my chanting to help settle my nerves. Find what helps you and stick with it let it be the thing that brings you comfort.
