Life's Jigsaw - War and Peace

Life is like a jigsaw puzzle. Each little piece is an aspect of our journey through it. And when at last we find that last piece and fit it into place, we eventually see the meaning of this life.


UBC Day 26
The W Piece - War and Peace, The internal battle

Understanding the Vibrational Energy (or chi, prana) that flows within us and trying to stay in balance wasn't the case some years ago.

I've been through many internal wars before arriving at a place of peace.

Internal wars doesn't mean destruction it just means that I have questioned many of my own beliefs, beliefs of others, beliefs that have been passed through the ages, learned some new things, excelled at some and failed at others, left others incomplete. And there are some "wars" that have occurred between mind and heart.

Eventually my beliefs have evolved from the sum total of all these experiences and no doubt they will keep evolving.

But whereas previously I was uneasy and my mind was forever running in many directions and I felt disconnected and discontented, now I am more at peace with myself and with my world.

There came a point in my life (not long ago) when I learned to surrender completely to a higher and Divine power. That doesn't mean that I kick back my heels and expect things to be presented on a platter. It just means that I accept the course of life as it comes, to know that whatever happens is for a reason, to keep an open mind about things, to act responsibly but without attachment to the result of the action, to be contented with whatever I have.

It has truly simplified my life and it is much easier to live in the present rather than forever dwelling in the future, plotting and planning and creating unnecessary stress.

I have no idea what the future holds, I don't plan my life any more. I simply go with the flow knowing that whatever happens is just as it should be.

Peace comes from total surrender that goes beyond faith.

Abandon all attachment to the results of action and attain supreme peace.
~ Lord Krishna, The Bhagavad Gita


Wishing you peace and joy.

  8. I agree totally.......when we surrender ourselves completely...we are guided by the faith which we have on that power. The 'internal' war explanation is a good reminder...

  13. Every word you write is a testimony to your inner wars; of the carnage they created and the healing they provided. They have made you what you are- a gentle, wise soul who gives solace with her words. Thank you Suzy!

  14. I do believe in the higher power too, that whatever happens, he did it for a reason! But sometimes it gets hard to maintain the peace!

  15. I also believe that God helps those who help themselves so I cannot simply sit waiting for things to happen :D

  16. I wish I could make myself go with the flow. It's such a difficult task. I live everything planned, so I become anxious if somthings go off the chart. It's stressful yes and I try so hard to take things smoothly.

  17. As Prthima said, acceptance brings peace. Every day is a war....some small and some times big. We must maintain equanimity during these situations.
