Holding tenously onto peace
« on: September 09, 2011, 09:24:27 PM »
Dear friends,
From many of the posts , it seems clear to me that the only thing that is in human hands is to accept things as they are and perhaps  the ability to do self enquiry .
There is also the feeling that things being what they are , passing events in the mirage of life , we owe it to ourself to hold onto peace, at all cost both as a consequence of the teachings and to further absorb the teachings of Bhagavan.
If this is correct, can someone share some pointers, as to how to hold onto peace ,in all our personal and professional dealings in various situations.
Regards,
Anand.

The word tenously  was incorrectly used.What I meant was tenaciously .

Dear Anand,

Yes. Paripoorana Shanti i.e total peace is another name for the Self.
To attain this total irretrievable peace, one should start practicing being
peaceful in day to day life. First with simple things like, an autorickshaw
driver asks for more fare. Be peaceful and if possible give it to him.
The food is not tasty.  Do not get agitated immediately with your wife.
Think of yesterday's food which was tasty and gulp today's food thinking
that her mind was not peaceful so she could not concentrate on the
 preparation of good food. Like this, there are many examples. Some lorry
comes fast from behind and splashes the mud on your shirt. Keep cool.
What is the point in losing temper, when the lorry had gone away at least
one kilometre. Do not do shadow fighting. Another thing is do not show the
anger on X because Y had ill treated you. This transference of anger is also
to be avoided. Suppose your boss shouts at you for the mistake either committed
or not committed by you.  You are gulping it because your job is to be safe.
It is okay. But do not show your anger to the tea-wallah who brings tea to your
table unnecessarily.  These are the ways to develop a peaceful life. This peace
will totally become a Peace that passeth understanding and you will become
another Ramana.

You know when some urchin urinated on His back when he was deeply in
meditation, He did not shout at the urchin.  This does not mean cowardice.
This means maintaining total Peace at all costs.



Arunachala Siva.
