There are lucky times when people stumble upon good fortune – whether it be finding a dollar on the sidewalk or narrowly avoiding catastrophe. However, finding peace is not so simple.
Attaining a more peaceful existence requires a consciousness shift, a change in the way one views themselves as well as those around them.
For example, many individuals have the instinct to view situations or other people in terms of flaws or conflicts that need to be corrected. While this kind of thinking may lead to problem-solving in certain instances, it can also overwhelm a person with negativity.
Finding peace is a matter of making a conscious effort to view everything you see in a positive light, no matter how glaring its negative aspects may be. This kind of mindset takes time and effort to fully attain, but once the benefits of hopeful living set in, you will see the true value of a peaceful mind.
Author and philosopher Ilchi Lee encourages all people to shift their consciousness toward positivity in an effort to make the planet a more unified place to live.
