Do you often find yourself thinking nonstop? Do you sometimes feel that your mind is going to explode from thoughts that don’t stop for one moment? Do you sometimes wish your mind could just stop thinking for a little while, and let you enjoy some rest and peace? Do you sometimes desire you could overcome your lack of inner peace?
It is possible that you are not always aware of the restlessness of your mind and lack of inner peace. This behavior of the mind is so deeply embedded that it is taken for granted and is considered to be natural. Thoughts keep coming and going, occupying your mind every moment of the day, wasting precious mental and emotional energy, and sometimes making your head ache.
Life is usually filled with tension, strain, rush and pressure at work and at home. These make the mind even more restless, and create and attract more thoughts into the mind. Problems, difficulties, fears, worries and hurt feelings increase even more the mental restlessness and lack of inner peace. At these times you become more acutely aware of the lack of inner peace and the need for some mental silence.
What happens when you want to concentrate, study or meditate? Suddenly you feel a swarm of thoughts disturbing and distracting your attention. What happens when you worry, are angry or emotionally excited? In such situations you feel that your mind is exploding from an endless number of thoughts. Are these thoughts useful for you? Not at all. They just add to the excitement and restlessness, and increase the sense of lack of inner peace and tranquility.
At such times you just want to scream at the mind to stop. It is like being helpless in a rudderless boat in the midst of the ocean. Then you feel the lack of peace inside you and wish you could stop the mind for just a little while.
You can attain this peace you are looking for. You can teach your mind to be silent and let you be. When this happens, you experience inner peace and calmness. All the worries, fears and thoughts just go away, and you feel more conscious and aware than ever.
Just imagine how it would be to live your life, work, interact with people, read, watch TV, travel, read or do whatever else, without thoughts and worries claiming your attention. Just think how your focus will become steady and your five senses become enhanced, because there is nothing to distract them. Just imagine how your understanding, comprehension, awareness and intuition will increase.
This will not happen overnight. In order to silence your mind at will, to shut down its incessant thinking and enjoy inner peace, you need some mental and emotional training. You need to develop some degree of inner detachment and mastery over your mind. There are no short cuts to overcoming nonstop thinking and lack of inner peace. The aim is not to stunt your mind through hypnosis or subliminal programming, but to gain a real ability, while increasing your ability to handle more efficiently and peacefully the daily affairs of your life.
You can overcome lack of inner peace!
I have written extensively about this subject at my website www.SuccessConsciousness.com, where you can find more information and guidance.
I have also written a book on this subject, Peace of Mind in Daily Life. It is a complete training program, from A TO Z, for making the mind quiet, overcoming the restlessness of the mind and attaining inner peace, while at the same time gaining inner strength, mental mastery and spiritual awareness.
