Wisdom with Wes: True Inner Peace

TSnapshot_20140731_2hanks to Will Harader for the inspiration to write this. Check out his article, “How Your Mind Manipulates You“.

How often do we wake up in the morning with the desire to have a simple, peaceful day? How often do we get up and tell ourselves, “I’m going to strive for a quiet, calm, peaceful mind today”?

The answer most of us would probably arrive at is never. We wake up each day with ambitions and things we want to do, complete or excel at, but most of us hardly ever awaken with the desire for inner peace.

Instead of always worrying about what we have to achieve each day, let’s go about our tasks with a calm, quiet mind and an open heart that’s willing to selflessly serve others. The mind has all kinds of tricks and distractions that make things harder on us if we give in, but instead, we can let it all go, perform our tasks calmly (yet excitedly if we enjoy them), and let whatever effort we give be enough.

We’re here to contribute to our conscious revolution, but we’re also here to raise the collective vibration by embodying peace, joy and any other simplistic quality the mind would convince us we have to strive to attain. We don’t have to make ourselves miserable listening to the mind’s constant worries and commands, and instead, we can simply exist and know that whatever  we get done is more than enough.

We’re perfect as we are, and we don’t need to endlessly strive or constantly change our routine around (or do anything else the mind would convince us is necessary) to earn our place in this world.

We have everything we could ever need, but we fail to realize it when we fail to embrace mind-centered peace, harmony and exuberance. Life doesn’t have to be as difficult as we’ve made it out to be, and all it takes to start living the life of our dreams is the willingness to be at peace with our existence.

It’s pretty simple, but we make it hard on ourselves by constantly striving to do or be something. True peace is realized when we can let all of that go and do whatever work we feel passionate about, with the knowledge that we’ve done plenty already.

Stay aware!
