How to suurender and find peace in the midst of the storm

How To Surrender And Find Peace In The Storm

 Many storms will come your way in life. The goal is to learn to surrender and find peace in the storm. It is to find peace even in the experiences you deem to be bad. Because more often than not, in retrospect, you will find those experiences aren’t actually bad. You will find  they were a necessary part of your journey to become all that you have asked to be. I came to a profound realization about how to find peace in the storm after I read Pema Chodron’s  book, When Things Fall Apart.

THE REASON WE ARE NOT ABLE TO FIND PEACE IN THE STORM :

 

The reason we are unable to find peace when we face  difficulties is because a lot of us think we should not have our problems. We only want to have good experiences, and feel good all the time. So we spend our time here on earth trying to avoid pain and seeking to experience pleasure. However this attitude does not reflect the reality of what life is.  The good and the bad things that happen in our lives enriches our experiences. 

I will pose this question to you. Could you imagine a life where everything is good and perfect all the time? If your answer is a no, then you are thinking like I am. Because I think I, too, will find such a life to be extremely boring.

THE GOOD AND BAD EXPERIENCES ARE NECESSARY FOR OUR OWN

GROWTH

I think the good and the bad experiences develop the essence of our humanity. More often that not, the things we consider bad are not really bad. And the reverse is also true.  We only think they are bad in the moment when they happen because they make us feel bad. However, in retrospect, we find that sometimes a lot of the bad breaks that we have, and a lot of the things that do not work out, really are a blessing in disguise.

HOW WE CAN FIND PEACE IN THE TOUGH BREAKS?

You  need to develop a trust for the beautiful intelligence that is the universe. You have to understand that nothing is working against you, that all things work in your favor. Gain the realization that  even when it feels painful and uncomfortable, it is not meant to harm you. It is not meant to destroy you. It is meant to allow you to expand yourself a little bit more, to challenge yourself a little bit more, and to get to know yourself a little deeper.

I find that my most growth, creativity, and expansion has come during some of my most difficult and uncomfortable times. I find that there is nothing that comes my way that I do not have the inherent ability to overcome. The tough times force me to tap deeper into those abilities. So I keep pushing knowing that the discomfort will only be temporary, but the reward will be boundless.
