Inner peace quotes:

"Inner peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, not as you'd like it to be."- Wayne Dyer "Don't allow the behaviors of others to destroy your inner peace" - Dalai Lama.

"If you feel depressed, you are living in the past, if you feel anxious, you are living in the future. If you feel at peace, you are living in the present."- Lao Tzu

"A calm man is like a tree that gives shade. People who need shelter come to him". Toba Beta

"You cannot find peace by avoiding life."- Virginia Woolf

Buddhist recommendations to achieve inner peace:

  1. Find a purpose in life: "Your purpose in life is to find a purpose, and to give it your whole heart". The human being needs to have goals, objectives, and vital purposes with which to find meaning to their days, motivated to get up in the morning, and energy to overcome more and more.
  2. Work on negative emotions "No one will punish you for your anger; it will punish you itself". Unmanaged anger, those that take control of our minds and make us explode without further ado, are useless. What's more, all that negative, anger-laden emotionality always tends to make a return trip. In the end, we end up hurting ourselves, losing even those we love the most.
  3. The here and now is the only thing that matters "Don't live from the past, don't imagine the future, focus on the present moment." Try it, take a deep breath and calm your mind: appreciate everything that is happening right now.
  4. Self-control, the key to happiness "A disciplined mind brings happiness". A disciplined mind is one that knows how to practice self-control, that prioritizes what is important.
  5. Attachment is our source of suffering "The root of suffering is attachment". Let us learn to be freer, to practice that detachment with which we can walk lighter, more in tune with our own life and being..
  6. I understand you, you are part of me, I am with you "True love is born of understanding". To love is above all to know how to care and to understand. Because the one who understands has the courage and the will to approach the soul of the other to make him/her see that he/she is present, that he/she understands what he/she feels and what he/she thinks. It is an unconditional approval that we all deserve to enjoy.
  7. You are your own enemy "Not even your worst enemy can hurt you as much as your own thoughts". We are the worst jailer, the worst judge and the worst executioner, the one that takes away our wings and brings us worries, reminding us that we will not be able to cope with this and that, that we do not deserve what is beyond?
  8. Constancy and perseverance "If you add a little to the little, and you do it frequently, soon a little will become a lot". To be constant in our efforts, to be persevering in the achievement of our desires in spite of the difficulties, will allow us to reach much higher than we believe.
  9. Speak intelligently "Better than a thousand empty words, a word that brings peace". Often we speak from resentment, from frustration or from that negative emotion that makes us captive and that is projected towards others. Let's make use of wise words, those simpler but deeper words, those that bring peace and balance.
