These days, I spend more time working on myself, especially on how to control my thoughts. If I am able to terminate the thoughts that create negative emotions, I will overcome every difficulties in life.
Therefore, I started my own journey to find the true meaning of life, where there is only peace and happiness, where I am no longer affected by suffering, or any outside impact.
I found Mediation. One day, I decided to sit down to meditate. And it became a part of me so naturally like it has been there long time before.
It was a turning point in my life.
The results did not come fast. I struggled quite a lot with so many thoughts in my head and many physical discomfort. But then the hardest part was over. There are times when I found peace and lost it in an instant. How frustration! I didn’t know why but a part inside told me to keep going. So I did not stop. At one point I realized that peace come from within, no one can take it away.
I do not consider myself as a good meditator. But by now, I have come a long way from the day I started. Now I live a different life, with a completely different mind. I look at things more clearly, more mindful. I find myself calmer, more open to everything that happens. I have some priorities and ignore the rest. I spend time only on things that critical for my sustainable development.
I started to have an idea of who I am, what my core values are, who I want to become.
This journey is the result of my own efforts with the support from my spiritual teachers and friends. Thanks to that, I have a much stronger mentality and physicality than I used to be. There is a long way to go. I will carry this peaceful state in my backpack.
I have many choices, but I choose to live mindfully and peacefully. ?
