Silent Awareness

“There is no such thing as peace of mind. 
Mind means disturbance; restlessness itself is mind.”
~Nisargadatta Maharaj

The natural feeling of peace comes to you only after you have released your egoic thoughts and silenced your mind through regular, daily meditation, or through spending time in nature. When you do this on a regular basis, you begin to feel that natural feeling of peace, love, and joy in your heart, which then radiates outward to everyone that you come into contact with.

You have to let go of your negative thoughts and emotions, your faulty and false perception of yourself and everyone  around you. You have to stop replaying your past in your mind over and over again. Your mind is like a tape recorder. It records everything, words, images, situations, and experiences—and if something or someone, in your past, had a strong impact on you emotionally, for whatever reason, that gets replayed more than anything else. In order for you to be present and peaceful now and not living in the past, you need to stop the mental tape recorder—stop the never-ending loop of thoughts of the past, which can only be done by changing your thinking to positive thoughts, living fully in the present moment, and silencing your mind.
