Peace is Power

meditation-1287207_640

Peace is the most potent power in the entire Universe. We mistakenly equate  power with having power over someone else or some situation external to us. But true power lies in being at absolute inner peace in face of any kind of external influence.

Imagine someone who is in that state of unshakeable peace. No one can be more powerful than that one at complete peace, when no external persons or situations can shake that peace. Who can have ascendency over them? Now imagine someone who is at peace in some situations but gets agitated in other situations by some one else’s influence. Who is more powerful? The one who can maintain his peace or the one who loses peace with external stimulus?

We may think such peace is not possible. But it is not just possible, it is surprisingly easy to be in a peaceful mode. It is we  who give away others the power to influence our inner peace. All we need to do is to realise and commit to make our own peace to be more of a priority than anything else, even being right or having our own way. It does not make us powerless but more powerful.
