How to be calm, peaceful and reduce stress? Here is an amazing technique, which I learned from one of my amazing teacher’s Bob Proctor, which can help you become more clam and peaceful.
Write the following passage every day, 2 times a day, for 60 to 90 days. Try not to miss any day without writing this excerpt. If you do miss a day, it is better to start all over again, start counting your days from the beginning.
This excerpt is really profound and has amazing insights on the true understanding of calmness and peace and how ti be calm. By constant repetition of ideas we change our deeply seated inner beliefs, we change our paradigm and reprogram our subconsciousness.
Your paradigm – set of inner beliefs influences your behavior, it influences your thoughts, and in order to change your behavior you need to change those negative, false, deep seated inner beliefs that do not allow you to reach your goals and achieve your highest potential. So, by repetition of the ideas, which you choose: positive, good ideas, which will serve you, benefit you and help you achieve your goals & more fulfillment , you change your old negative inner beliefs, change your paradigm and reprogram your subconsciousness.
Writing and not just reading the passage is really important, because it is more effective when you write it.You don’t just see it and read it, you work with it on a deeper level, and it helps to internalize those truths on the deeper level as well.
So lets begin. Read this passage first, feel it and then whenever you are ready start practicing this technique, start writing this excerpt twice a day for 60 – 90 days in a row:
Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.
It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its
presence is an indication of ripened experience,
and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and
operations of thought.
A man becomes calm in the measure that he understands
himself as a thought evolved being, for such knowledge
necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought,
and as he develops a right understanding, and sees more and
more clearly the internal relations of things by
the action of cause and effect, he ceases to fuss and
fume and worry and grieve, and remains
poised, steadfast, serene.
The calm man, having learned how to govern himself, knows
how to adapt himself to others; and they, in turn, reverence
his spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of him and rely upon him.
The more tranquil a man becomes, the
greater is his success, his influence, his power for good.
Even the ordinary trader will find his business prosperity
increase as he develops a greater self control and
equanimity, for people will always prefer to deal with a man
whose demeanor is strongly equable.
The strong, calm man is always loved and revered. He is
like a shade-giving tree in a thirsty land, or a sheltering rock in a
storm. Who does not love a tranquil heart, a sweet-tempered,
balanced life? It does not matter whether it rains
or shines, or what changes come to those possessing
these blessings, for they are always sweet,
serene, and calm.
That exquisite poise of character which we call
serenity is the last lesson of culture; it is the flowering of life,
the fruitage of the soul. It is precious as wisdom, more to be
desired than gold—yea, than even fine gold. How insignificant
mere money-seeking looks in comparison with a serene life—a
life that dwells in the ocean of Truth, beneath the waves, beyond
the reach of tempests,
in the Eternal Calm!
How many people we know who sour their lives, who ruin
all that is sweet and beautiful by explosive tempers, who
destroy their poise of character, and make bad blood! It is a
question whether the great majority of people do not ruin their
lives and mar their happiness by lack of self-control. How few
people we meet in life who are well-balanced, who have that exquisite poise
which is characteristic of the
Yes, humanity surges with uncontrolled passion, is tumultuous
with ungoverned grief, is blown away by anxiety and doubt.
Only the wise man, only he whose thoughts are controlled
and purified, makes the winds and the storms
of the soul obey him.
Tempest-tossed souls, wherever ye may be, under
whatsoever conditions ye may live, know this—in the ocean of
life the isles of Blessedness are smiling, and the sunny shore of
your ideal awaits your coming. Keep your hand firmly upon the
helm of thought. In the barque of your soul reclines the
commanding Master; He does but sleep; wake Him.
Self-control is strength; Right Thought is mastery;
Calmness is Power. Say unto your heart,
“Peace be still!”
This is a truly amazing practice. Try it and see for yourself.
