The Path to Nirvana
“Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.” —John F. Kennedy
Everyday we go to school and work. Why do we go though? We go to school and work to achieve a level of success to bring us happiness. Whether it’s a good grade or a dream salary, we get inner peace from the satisfaction of reaching our goals and dreams. Kids are known to be at peace more than adults. While adults stress over bills, work, and relationships, kids always stay at peace as they find it everyday. Playing on the playground, dreaming big, and even living according to their own imaginations. We reach a level of eternal peace through great ideas about who we are in the world, what the world must be, what we will do, and what we will become.
Another way to find eternal peace is to make yourself the best possible version of yourself. Your soul is the whole world! You are your own best friend as only you are aware of what you really need. The idea of self-acceptance is thoroughly connected with the ideals of eternal peace, as loving yourself and accepting yourself for who you really are. When you love and accept yourself and have achieved the best possible version of yourself, you find a safe place within yourself and are able to rely on yourself and your capabilities to bring pon eternal peace.
Eternal peace can also be found through the desire to grow and learn. Although eternal peace is not an aspect of life that comes all at once like a delivery at the door, one can find eternal peace and pleasure through a series of changes made from lifestyle to habits. Our desire to grow and learn can bring inner and eternal peace as peace comes with the gain of knowledge and better understanding of our world bringing us more peace and satisfaction. “Sally tells us about the unexpected after-effects of a day of super-charged sniper training and makes us wonder about a world where you can order up a state of mind.” Sally’s state of mind and her desire to advance her skills in sniper training shows how she has found inner peace with herself, her lifestyle, and her passion.
In conclusion, eternal peace can be found through self love and acceptance, the desire to grow and learn, as well as hard work to achieve our goals and dreams.
