YOUR HOW-TO GUIDE FOR A PEACEFUL YOU
We are deeply saddened by the news this week as a tragedy has taken place in the symbolic holy land of Jerusalem. Pilgrims flock to the holy land throughout the year, but more so during the festive seasons of Easter and Passover. Hannah Bladon, 20, is the fatal victim of the attack carried out by a very unstable mental patient, aged 57. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Hannah’s family through an especially difficult time.
The team at Moroccan Natural are Peace Promoters. Deep down in our hearts, there is a hippy soul that yearns for peace whilst preaching our ethos of all things green. However, we know peace extends beyond ourselves. Inner-peace is important, but we would all benefit from knowing how to spread peace and awareness to a currently very troubled world. We have the how-to guide to help you on your way to a more peaceful you, and how this can affect more than your inner happiness.
MN’S GUIDE TO KEEPING THE PEACE
1. KEEP YOUR PEACE
If you spend as much time online as we do, you are sure to have heard the phrase “you can’t pour from an empty cup”. This is wise beyond words, however, how many of us actually put this into practice? Many of us offer too much of ourselves to others, but what we give is not nearly as enough as we could give, and the problem lies in trying to give whilst leaving nothing for yourself. You must take care of yourself first before you give freely, as this will help clear your mind, help you make better decisions and find the inner-peace that once seemed forever out of your reach. Meditation and self-reflection will help. Begin reading more and learning about yourself, building up your knowledge and self-confidence in order to be more you. That is when you can give the very best of yourself to others.
2. LET IT GO
It’s difficult to keep a clear head, and once a problem arises, albeit a very minute problem, your temper has already surpassed your logic and you begin spreading negativity from your actions right down to your words. Many things are suddenly said that all of a sudden seem very unnecessary and out-of-character, and you are left feeling nothing but shame and regret. There is a very simple way of avoiding this. You must first slow down, and think about what it is about the situation that has revved up your temper. Then ask yourself is it worth losing your momentary peace of mind for? A majority of the time, the answer is no. We have a habit of making things seem much worse in our heads than they actually are, but we think, if you can let it go, then do.
3. DIFFUSE ALL TENSION
Fights are inevitable and they can happen anywhere. Sometimes you are part of the argument, and sometimes you are simply a bystander. However, allowing the fight to continue an escalate is not wise. Fights are made up of two people trying to prove a point that is fuelled by anger and frustration. They only seem to esculate. If you are part of the fight, try to take a step back and take some time away to calm down. Then approach the other person when you are in a calmer, understanding state so a solution can be found. If you are a bystander, try to break up the argument in the safest way possible, and ask both parties to go their separate ways to cool down before attempting to once again resolve the issue. The ego can take a simple discussion to a full blown argument, and their is no need to let it get that far.
4. GIVE MORE
Not to contradict our first point, but we do believe giving will help everyone feel better. Do not give too much if you do not feel whole. Give with a pure heart, and expect nothing in return. The feeling that accompanies the act of giving is a gratifying feeling that is very difficult to replicate. It is the innocence of a young Childs laugh at a silly face, the warmth of a hug to a sad friend and the sincerity of your mothers eyes when you spend time with her after being away for too long. There are infinite ways to give, and it is by giving that you can help bring peace to yourself and to others.
