    Default Inner Peace

    How do you get yours and how do you keep it, how does it benefit you?

    The more one loves God, the more it is that having nothing in the world means everything, and the less one loves God, the more it is that having everything in the world means nothing.

    Mantra meditation, time spent alone in quiet ...well, with music, so not complete quiet, walking outdoors, spending time with animals, Taoism, doing some yoga stretches...also getting enough sleep and remembering to listen to my inner nature (this is Taoism) instead of being too led by externals ---- but also not being too self-absorbed, and living in the world.

    The ocean also makes me feel this way, just visiting there, or riding a bike on the beach, or having new positive experiences.

    It's about having inner alignment, being in tune with nature, mind-body balance, but being external enough to not be totally self-absorbed and to have new experiences and live life. Putting things in perspective away from ego is also important, but easier said than done.

    I'd love to be a higher level 6, integrating more in positive traits of 9. I very much feel like it's something where I get dragged down into my ego/emotions too much...but on the other hand, I like experiencing my emotions, it's a big part of who I am. I have to trust my inner self. That's what ultimately 6s have to do - trust themselves.

    Get away from everything for a few days and engage my own thoughts.

    I don't believe in peace and harmony with nature, but rather ultimate control over the chaos of natural forces, the mastery of mind over the material world.

    Try to keep things in perspective. Learn to accept the things I can't control. Schedule enough "I time."
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    This basically.
    Aswell as God, believing in something greater than myself gives me piece of mind.

    I read and theorise about him, although I have a book on meditation which once I find it again I really want to practice, on the day that I bought it I went and read it in the wooded grove of a monestry and it was pretty uplifting but I was thinking it not experiencing it, if you know what I mean, not sure that its possible to think your way there to transcendence.
