Is Inner Peace So Difficult to Achieve?

You’ve probably come across a couple of people in your life that seem to have this implacable calm to them. They maintain a healthy distance from whatever is negative, while at the same time accepting themselves, other people and whatever is going on in their lives. How do they do it? Although a beautiful feeling, that inner peace you can sense in them is more than just an abstract concept. It’s a state of being that you reach by working on several little, but important aspects of your life. Let me show you what these are:

1. Clear Up That Waiting List

Whenever we set ourselves tasks that we don’t eventually finish, we add them instead to this invisible, but heavy-weighing waiting list of things-yet-to-be-done. If you are unable to finish certain things, make sure you completely remove them from your life unless you want that emotional burden to get larger and larger. It may seem overwhelming at first, but just start with the smaller tasks and you’ll soon get the ball rolling.

2. Choose to Be Responsible In Your Relationships

Unfortunately, responsibility in regards to other people doesn’t come easy to us nowadays. We tend to think that it’s others making us behave in a certain way and that we cannot always be held accountable for our reactions. This couldn’t be further from the truth – our behavior is up to us entirely. However if at times you feel anger or frustration just beneath the surface, you should just walk away from the situation for a while and come back with a fresher perspective.

3. Slow Down and Process

Adrenaline is key in today’s society and we sometimes can’t help ourselves but get another shot of it to get us through the day. That means we always tend to run on high-energy, moving from one goal to another, even at the expense of our well-being or relationships. Try to slow down and find a different, more relaxed pace in your life. I promise you you’ll lose absolutely nothing. Instead, you will achieve the inner peace you covet so much and simply be happy.

4. Ask Questions Whenever You’re Unsure

Lots of anxiety typically builds up around uncertainty. This is why it’s best to just dive right into fuzzy situations and ask the questions you need to get clarity in your life. This will not only help you but will help other people as well to get a better feeling of what’s expected of them or what they can receive from you. 

5. Clean Your Workspace, Clean Your Mind

If you spend your day in a cluttered environment, you’ll find that your brain also gets foggy pretty quickly. We need space and cleanliness to function properly, so take the time to declutter your workspace or living room. You’ll become more relaxed, more mindful and more productive. Soon enough, you’ll want to have this positive emotion in other aspects of your life as well, so start simplifying and organizing your life.

6. Break Down Your Issues

Life is a beautiful, complex journey that’s often filled with challenges that can feel insurmountable. Whenever you are up against such an issue try to breathe in and zoom out. Will you still feel its impact in five years’ time? Are there people out there that are facing challenges greater than yours? How can I tackle the issue step by step? What’s the first thing I can do about it? What’s the worst thing that could happen if I don’t get the desired effect? By asking these questions, you can rid yourself of anxiety and get a clearer picture of what can be done.

7. Live and Let Be

This is one of the most powerful ways to achieve inner peace and happiness. Buddhists discovered a long time ago that acceptance represents the key to a positive mind and a more fulfilling life. Stop ruminating on what someone did, said or on something that happened to you. Stop feeding that endless loop, accept everything that’s going on and start creating new emotions instead. Allow yourself the opportunity to be more present in your life and more appreciative of it.

If your life so far has been an endless race and you don’t seem to catch a break, this is a clear indicator you need to find a new way of being. Take some time to introspect and ask yourself what’s an ideal version of yourself and what it would take for you to become that person. In the end, nothing else matters but for us to be in perfect alignment with what we need and want from life, while also respecting what our resources and natural gifts are.

Words With The Power To Change Lives on Film

One of the most beautiful testimonies to the power of literature is Peter Weir’s film Dead Poets Society (1989), starred in by much-missed actor, Robin Williams. The film is centered on a teacher that changes a group of student’s lives, through his words. In one of the most memorable scenes, he tells them, “We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.” Words have sparked change, inspired action, and helped human beings understand that they are not alone – even in their darkest hour. How have words changed lives in the film? Read below to discover a few examples.

Words and the Power of Acceptance

In one powerful scene in the recent film Call Me By Your Name (2019, Luca Guadagnino), a broken-hearted teen, who has just lost the love of his life, is consoled by his father. The father utters words that are so unexpected and beautiful, they form part of what critics have deemed the defining scene of this Oscar-nominated film. He says, “In my place, most parents would hope the whole thing goes away, or pray that their sons land on their feet soon enough. But I am not such a parent. In your place, if there is a pain, nurse it, and if there is a flame, don’t snuff it out, don’t be brutal with it.” Love, he says, is given only once and powerful emotions – including sorrow – should not be snuffed out, but rather, embraced. The father’s words are life-changing for the son, who resolves to hold on to rather than repress love. This scene is seen by many as an example of unconditional parenting at its finest.

Words as Imagined Perfection

Words sometimes fill a void, live life on behalf of its writer, represent a dream that will never come true. Such is the case in David Lowery’s Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (2013) – the story of Bob, a young man who takes the fall for his girlfriend when a robbery goes wrong and receives a life sentence. Bob writes his girlfriend achingly beautiful words which in effect are merely rhetorical since he will never be able to live the life he wishes to by her side. The words are given deeper effect by having the actor who plays Bob – Casey Affleck – read emotions such as these. “I’ll write to you every day and someday you’ll see a letter from me, and you will look up, and it will be me who’s handing it to you. And then we can forget about words, and I’ll touch your face, and I’ll kiss you.” His words may be a fantasy, but they enable his girlfriend to understand the extent to which she was loved.

Words that Merit the Greatest Sacrifice

These days, people feel considerably more independent when it comes to sharing their message than in the past. In the age of ubiquitous connectivity, everyone’s a mailman and as noted by OnlineStamp.net, people can efficiently print their own stamps at home, bypassing postal workers completely. Only Angels Have Wings (1939) shows us how different things were in the previous millennium. Cary Grant plays a brave airmail pilot who flies over the Andes mountains, risking his life so that the soldiers and their families can enjoy the soothing words of their loved ones. When war strikes, words can be the panacea, the inspiration, and the promise of something better to come.

Words that Woo

Words are capable of making someone fall in love with their writer, as the legendary tale of Cyrano de Bergerac and inspired characters have shown many times in the film. One film that builds on this narrative is Il Postino: The Postman (1995), directed by Michael Radford and Massimo Troisi. Il Postino is itself a remake of the 1983 film Ardiente Paciencia by Antonio Skarmeta. It is set in the year 1950. Famed Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda, is exiled to a tiny Italian island. There, he meets a young fisherman and part-time postman, Mario, who despite being poorly educated, becomes heavily influenced by Neruda’s poetry and philosophy on life. Neruda helps Mario woo the woman of his dreams, reminding him of the immense seductive power that beautiful words can have.

The beauty of words finds its apotheosis in many films that are treasured by aficionados the world over. From those that comfort or inspire to those that express an aching or yearning that will never be soothed, words are capable of eliciting powerful emotions that audiences can sometimes repress in their day-to-day lives. For many, these words are written down or kept in their mind, to be recalled when they feel that only they can really express what one is feeling.
