Being peaceful

thegiftofpeace_pI have this book called The Gift of Peace – created by the Brahma Kumaris. Here is a page I want to share with you:

Desires cause peace to disappear. You think that acquiring things will make you feel secure, but the reality is that the more you have the more fear there usually is of losing it, and the further you are from peace. Desires are the cause of all conflicts. When you want something and you cannot get it, you become frustrated. Learning to be free from desires is learning how to be peaceful.

This is certainly a lesson I have learned of late. I have finally learned to stop wanting, planning and controlling everything and let it all go. It is liberating. It’s wasn’t easy to change but I did it.
