All About Peace-Essay #InternationalPeaceDay
What do we know about peace?
Well, peace is a state of mind where you are calm and there is absence of violence.
It feels so good when you are peaceful. A lot of us enjoy peace and quietness. As for me, I hate it when there is so much noise and violence. Nowadays the world has become so noisy. People have almost forgotten the word peace. They are just like busy bees. If our world is like this, where can we find peace?
There is only one place I can think of, which is peaceful – nature! I feel so peaceful while I am walking around my garden. How??
Because, there are lots of plants. The quiet rustling of the trees, the wind
in my face, the pleasant fragrance of the flowers, the colourful butterflies flying around.
Ah! How peaceful! When I feel sad or overwhelmed I just go out and take a walk. Within minutes I cheer up! That is the power of nature and the peace it holds. Nature is the best medicine.
Peace is the most essential thing that every human needs to thrive. We need inner peace as well. Inner Peace? What does it mean?
It is a beautiful feeling where your mind and soul remain calm and there is no stress. Inner peace is really important. Why is inner peace important? It is really beneficial to every mind and soul because it keeps a human very calm.
Peace is the ultimate solution to any type of conflict in this world.
What does God say about peace?
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives, I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
Therefore it has been also inferred that God wants us to be peaceful.
How can we achieve peace?
Focus your attention on those things you love, spend time around nature and stay in ‘non doing’ anything for at least few minutes which will keep you free and you will discover peace. In our school we are told to practice ‘non doing’ for 11 minutes which will help us to stay calm.
Peace and meditation – meditation is the best ever practice I can think of to stay peaceful. Meditation can create a state of relaxation. You forget all of your thoughts, be it good or bad and find peace within yourself. Now coming to the place where you can meditate. The best places are beside a quiet lake, in your garden, under a tree and so on. Avoid places that are too noisy which may distract you. Meditation even improves your concentration. Peace is a very important part of every beating heart, working body, the mind and the soul.
Peace is the solution for every problem. Together we can create a peaceful
