OBSTACLES IN LIVING A PEACEFUL LIFE

Everyone of us wants to live a peaceful and happy life but hardly a few of us are able to do it. Some of us even spend all our lives thinking that we are happy when we are actually not. Happiness is not just having great material belongings, a nice career, a good spouse etc. But is it is
It is very important to understand that we as human beings have two worlds- internal and external. External world consists of our material posessions and everything that exists in the physical world. Our internal world consists of our feelings, our emotions, our thoughts. Until we are not fully and equally happy in both these worlds then we will always be unhappy. Control of both the worlds is in our own hands. If we want to be happy externally then we can pursue a good career to have nice material wealth. (I will do a post on how to pursue a good career by accessing your true potential in future.) But first our focus is on making our internal world happy. And it is also true that if we do not correct our internal world then all the neagtive emotions of anger, frustration and stress will have negative affects on our concentration levels (as discussed in previous post) and all our efforts in pursuing our dreams of a great career will be useless. So it is clear that until we make ourselves internally happy we can not even be externally happy.
Our internal consists of two chief components where all our feelings, thoughts and emotions come from- Conscious Mind and Subconscious Mind. Modern science and psychology offer a great variety of definitions of both these terms. But we won’t dwell ourselves in technicalties here. Our conscious mind controls all those feelings, thoughts, emotions and actions of ours that we do consciously and knowingly i.e. things that we know that we are doing, thoughts that we know that we are thinking. For example- think about a movie, thinking about a friend, thoughts while cooking food etc. Subconscious Mind controls those actions and thoughts of ours which we are not even aware that we are thinking. The actions and thoughts that take place automatically without our conscious effort. For example – while driving a motorcycle we don’t even think about accelerator, gears, clutch and brakes; yet we drive with such a great ease and fluidity.
This is the power of our sub-conscious mind. It is able to do things with perfection without even thinking about them. If we are able to tap into the hidden powers of our subconscious mind then we will know the possibilities that we haven’t imagined yet. Our Subconscious mind is also the controller of our conscious mind. This implies that whatever we do consciously it is actually coming from our subconscious mind. It also means that whatever obstacles we face in living a peaceful life like negative emotions of fear, guilt, loneliness, depression etc are actually deeply embedded in our subconscious mind. So if we correct our subconscious mind then we can root out all the negative emotions and live a peaceful and joyous life.
