Spiritual / Inner Peace?

For starters…I am basically what you call a hippie. I really like the idea of being spiritually aware, zen, find inner peace, etc…, however you wanna call it. So, what I wanna know is what some of the most rewarding things are to do that involve say meditation or anything along those lines. Also, I’m not sure if it even exists, but I would like to find a way to sort of constantly be relaxed / peaceful, even when im not trying things like meditation, etc. So I would basically go about my daily life, and without even being fully aware, I would be much more relaxed because of the “thing” that I would be doing every now and then to “find inner peace”, or whatever the thing you recommend does. Please, dont disregard this as some druggies comment, i’ve been wanting to be spiritually aware and such since before I even had my first toke, I just dont know where to start.

Life is a learning lesson. Try to remove any negative thoughts from your mind. This is about people or what happens in the world. Not easy to do but just let it wash over you and learn from these experiences. Everything happens for a reason. They are how we learn. Help others when you can, this can be something very small as just holding the door for someone else. Smile at others when you see them. Remove any negative teachings that you have learned about what you consider God or in your spiritual beliefs. These are ways that will bring… Read more »

Hello! of course all of these things are possible.. However the peace and answers anre within yourself..You have to learn to let go of all of the clutter that infiltrates your mind every day. Tnhis is the first step. the second step is to have a looks around you. Go outside and look at all of the beautiful things that this earth has to offer. It could be as simple as a flower or a tree, an animal. it is all about connection to all that is around you and healing of your soul and mind. Simply let yourself be.… Read more »

The only inner piece you will find is death, looks that you have alucinogenos drugs, becareful for trying to find something not real you will lose your life. Only God when you know Him can give you that inner peace.

IF you need to do “the “thing” that I would be doing every now and then to “find inner peace” or if you need to do anything at all for it, THEN you do not and will not have inner peace. INNER peace does NOT come from outward deeds or materials or dependence on external conditions. Knowing this and forgetting all other suggestions, is the first step to INNER peace ! Inner peace can only come from within. From inside out, not from outside in ! There is nothing you need to do to achieve it. It is within you… Read more »

IMO…what you are looking for will come through understanding the nature and rhythm of the Universe. This is no small feat and will take a considerable amount of understanding of a number of physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional realities. Try to understand your smallness as opposed to the galactic vastness of the space and time continuum, then look inside yourself and understand that the boundaries within are as vast as space itself. Then you will see that in your miniature uniqueness, you are as large and as powerful as the constellations that are seen with the Hubble telescope. You will… Read more »

To become spiritually aware you have to accomplish the finding of zen/inner peace/ etc. Once you fully master meditation completely, you’ll be able to stay relaxed all the time. It is impossible to stay relaxed 24/7, but you can find a sense of peace by relating the breathing and muscle techniques learned from meditaion.

I do this by:

1) carrying around a small pouch of incense, a smell that relaxes me
2) breath deeply and exhale slowly almost continuosly
3) keep my muscles relaxed no matter what
4) meditate for 5-7 minutes every 4 hours

You should definitely start to trust in God because he takes care of everything. It feels amazing to know that I am loved and forgiven no matter what sin I commit. I am only 13 and I am committed to God and you feel great when you put your life in his hands.

Dude just grab a gun or buy one and put several bullets in the magazine then make sure to cock the gun and place the barrel into your dogs mouth and pull the trigger to make sure it doesn’t misfire. If your dog is dead then place the barrel in your friend or wifes mouth and pull the trigger again and if either of them die then you know you have a good weapon. After you know the gun is good you can finally aim it at yourself and pull the trigger.

Your first mistake is trying not to be fully aware. Always be fully aware. That is how you find inner peace. Zen saying: “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood carry water.”

meditate and spend time in nature, pay attention to fine details in nature and that should carry out to other areas of your life.

Take LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, mescaline, or DMT.

Being relaxed all the time isn’t something you can do, though, like it’s a decision. It’s just a constant effort on your part, it has no beginning or end like a decision, you just gotta keep on meditating and try to get in the habit of being chilled out and mindful.

Forget the meditation stuff.

John 14:27

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Get Jesus! =D

Jesus is God and the only way into heaven. Please pray a sincere prayer with all of your heart admitting to Jesus you are a sinner. Have full faith that His blood pays off all of your sins and accept His gift of everlasting life. I pray that God blesses you with peace. Amen.
