SEEK PEACE OF MIND BEFORE ACTING By Gigi Langer

SEEK PEACE OF MIND BEFORE ACTING. 


When I’m facing confusion, conflict, or other problems, I begin by honestly admitting that my thinking is distorted by ego and fear. Then, I seek the peace of mind and a new perspective.

Rumi, the thirteenth-century Persian poet and Sufi mystic, wrote, “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right-doing is a field. I will meet you there.”

Peace Of Mind Happiness

It's a choice between living in the problem and living in the solution.
-Living with the problem:
Our worries focus our attention on the “rightdoing and wrongdoing” of our situation: We obsess about who was at fault, what we should have said or done, or how a situation should be different. These fears make us tense, often leading to rash actions and damaged relationships.
-Living in the solution:
When we look “out beyond” these negative thoughts, we find a perspective of peace, hope, and wisdom. This is where the solutions lie.

Finding Peace Within Yourself

Try this simple exercise to experience living in the solution rather than in the problem. It’s a variation on “The Golden Key” from Power Through Constructive Thinking  (Google for free PDF off entire book) by Emmet Fox, a New Thought leader of the early 20 century.

How To Find Peace And Happiness

Whenever a troubling thought comes to you, gently focus your mind on something that brings you to hope or happiness. It may be a phrase (“All is well”); a prayer; or an image of a beloved child or a rose. When you revert to worrying, think instead about your positive thought.
Make the switch as often as necessary.
Your thoughts frequently return to the problem in the mistaken belief that this will fix it. Be vigilant and gentle as you teach your mind to think about the positive thoughts you've chosen.

How To Find Inner Peace With Yourself

Soon you will gain a peaceful outlook that leads to wise solutions for the situation that was vexing you. Quite often you'll find the problem resolved with no action is necessary at all.
