The logic of peace of mind, which is every human being’s right or privilege, appears obscure and hard to pin down within this universe of ours—what with the political insurgencies, work stress, family responsibilities, inflation, and global recession plaguing us—most people are on a precarious situation. What happens to this privilege of ours which has simply slipped from our fingers like sand dunes that just passes then fades away.

Peace of mind gives the impression that it escapes us ever since. Still, we sadly discuss about it as if it’s for the high and the mighty (read: elite—the selected few of exceptional individuals) or as if it’s some sort of a foreign language. Having peace of mind is as highly significant as having regular exercise, good nutrition and our spiritual life.

So any person does not have to be an expert or guru or anybody highly special to earn this right. In a way, letting the idea of peace of mind disappear just like that was instituted a long time ago and it’s subtly self-defeating. It’s merely omnipresent and has permeated each and every part of life—our social and personal relationships, the corporate market, professional athletics and all else you could think of.

Okay, so now, let us take a look. Some of a few questions can answer this vagueness if you would just reply them as truthfully as you can. 1. Am I taking good care of myself, physically, spiritually, emotionally, nutritionally? 2. Am I in any sort of unhealthy interpersonal relationships—friends, co-workers, spouse, parents, siblings? 3. Am I self-assured enough like, asserting my wants, needs and some of my limitations? 4. Am I open and willing to forgive and forget to have peace of mind? 5. Have I emptied or cleared out some of my excess emotional baggage? 6. Am I willing to do whatever it takes to have peace of mind? 7. What is in my current state of mind, enabling me to re-examine indistinct images and revive all the distress kept in them? 8. Am I ready to alter or cease my unhealthy interpersonal relationships—including looking for a new job? 9. Do I advocate myself daily for being my own person? 10. Am I prepared to say “No” if it is the best response for me? 11. Do I exercise to be more physically active and healthy?

Well then, if you replied ‘No’ to those queries above except for the second one, you could start your passage on those items which you’re willing to do. As you begin to change those things you’re ready to change now, you would discern the ones you were not originally willing to change give the impression that it’s less difficult. However, if you answered ‘Yes’ to all those questions you’re really motivated to have peace of mind. The next question would be when to start your voyage of creating peace of mind? It’s entirely up to you but the ideal time is now—this moment. Look for that thing you could do right now and act on it. Only you could attain that peace of mind for yourself and not others.
