The pathway to peace

“Inner peace, or peace of mind, refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress. Being ‘at peace’ is considered by many to be healthy and the opposite of being stressed or anxious.”

This is what the world perceives when they approach the word along with inquisitive brains and unaware minds. But irony hits strong when they experience a kind of peace by doing nothing but sitting in front of Christ and praying their hearts out. That is when people begin to question what peace really is?

When we think of peace, we usually think of a lack of conflict or emotions of tranquillity. The Hebrew word for peace, shalom, and many others in the Bible cover a wide range of concepts. They include reaching our best goals, living in peace with others, and experiencing wholeness, restfulness, and tranquillity.

Peace is something that everyone throughout history has yearned for, whether we recognise it or not. The Bible speaks extensively on the subject, and it’s no surprise that it makes a clear distinction between our connection with God and our ability to really enter into peace.

When the mind seeks solace you ought to cater it with the humble abode of God and the soulful presence of nothing but pleasant thoughts.

Like the vast oceans that run as far as the eye can trace, the bewitching waves and the enchanting breeze, open your hearts’ eyes to feel not the words of people or the meaning behind disappointing actions, but to see the rawness in each act of love, the glitter in every excited chatter, the bubbly aura in every goofy laughter and all those instances that you more often than not miss amidst this chaotic ocean-like life.

Sit on the wooden bench and experience that steady, safe touch of the surface underneath, that provides you room to pray to your lord, sit and contemplate about your actions, sob into the hug of your wrapped arms and let loose the misery you’ve been burdening yourself with for so long.

The search for peace and inner calmness is one of the never ceasing types, what matters is the consistency and rhythm with which you crave peace.

Visit the lord and while you pray for health, happiness and wellness do not for a minute forget about the gratitude you have for the almighty and his generosity.

The Lord give you peace (Numbers 6:24–26)

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

This chapter from Numbers is frequently quoted as a blessing. God’s attitude toward His people is usually linked to their direct experience in the Bible. Their lives would be distinguished by success and tranquillity if His face was turned toward them, but if they led Him to look away, the result would be disastrous.
