Inner peace (or peace of mind) refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress. Being “at peace” is considered by many to be healthy homeostasis and the opposite of being stressed or anxious. Peace of mind is generally associated with bliss and happiness.
Peace of mind, serenity, and calmness are descriptions of a disposition free from the effects of stress. In some cultures, inner peace is considered a state of consciousness or enlightenment that may be cultivated by various forms of training, such as prayer, meditation, tai-chi-quan (太极拳, tàijíquán) or yoga, for example. Many spiritual practices refer to this peace as an experience of knowing oneself. Finding inner peace is often associated with traditions such as Buddhism and Hinduism.
Religious beliefs often seek to identify and address the basic problems of human life, including the conflicts between, among, and within persons.
Christians claim Jesus of Nazareth to be the “Prince of Peace”, the Messiah Christ who established a Kingdom of Peace where persons, societies, and all of creation are to be healed of evil. For persons to enter this Kingdom and experience peace, Christians believe that one must develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who stated: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”
Buddhists believe that peace can be attained once all suffering ends. To eliminate suffering and achieve this peace, they follow a set of teachings called the Four Noble Truths — a central tenet to their philosophy.
The religion of Islam means the way of life to attain peace. The Arabic word “ISLAM” means peace. The word Muslim means the person who submits to Allah in Peace. The submission to Allah (the Arabic proper noun for “THE GOD”, One and Only) is based on humility and an attitude of humility within one’s own self cannot be accomplished without total rejection of violence and attitude of alliance towards peace.Religious beliefs often seek to identify and address the basic problems of human life, including the conflicts between, among, and within persons.
