Life should be peaceful and sometimes it seems difficult to stay in peace. Then you need different approaches to help you regain your peaceful mind, and needless to say, meditation is one of them.
Take a holistic approach
To achieve true peace, you must respect the act of discipline, both during meditation and in the non-meditative state. It is necessary to stay away from intoxicants or even try to kill a tiny insect. These practices may seem simple, but they help you stay alert. These little things will bring changes that are worth noting in the long run.
The choice is yours, control or peace
If you want to be in control of everything you need to be aware of the stress and anxiety that you are going through. Through meditation, you can find peace at its best, your mind will be at rest, and your soul will be controlled. Still, it is necessary to understand that you shouldn't try to control meditation, you will lose your peaceful mind.
It is best to take responsibility for what you can control without trying to control everything. When your mind is agitated, it cannot handle things like your peaceful mind.
It's all about balance
Two important things in meditation are sati, awareness, and sabai, which is physical and mental relaxation. It is your job to maintain the balance between the two as too much sati will make you eager and too much sabai will make you fall asleep. Also in life it is important to keep a perfect balance between everything and stay peaceful.
You have the right to reset
You may be caught up in distracting thoughts and spending time opposing them. Instead, try to reset them and start over. You may think that this way you will start over, but it gives you peace of mind. There can be some wrong choices in life. Instead of living with them, starting over and leaving them behind, life will be peaceful.
Be open and be innocent
Every experience is different, be it in life or in meditation. It is true that you can prepare or practice something, but you are not sure of the result. Hence, it is necessary that you keep your innocent mind openly accepting things.
What hurts the most in life is the difference between your expectations and the behavior of other people. If you can develop an innocent mind, you will find that you can find life for what it is, not how you want it to be.
Exercise beats theory on a given day
As with anything else, meditation requires constant practice. Maintaining discipline is a good start, but it's a start. To achieve peace and mindfulness, you have to practice hard, really hard. Any expert in politics, drama, or sports will tell you about the endless hours they have spent practicing.
