Talking to different people, I’ve perceived a confusion between the concept of peace and happiness, before reflecting about their true meanings, they express that they feel peace because they’re happy, but that’s just mental peace.
By definition, happiness is the state of feeling or showing pleasure. The thing here is that whatever makes us be happy depends on our mental construction, so if we decide to perceive just what’s positive we left what’s negative aside, even if that truly resonates with our own peace. According to this definition, we find mental peace in our built happiness.
On the other hand we have the definition of peace that is the state of being calm or quiet, this is, being free of conflicts.
When we let our mind to perceive what we feel, think, say and do, we are able to perceive the level of coherence and peace within us. This is a construction that starts within and proyects itself outside.
By deciding from our peace, we understand the importance of nourishing new constructions to project it. Our mind may need adjustment to go back to its state of peace, but now aligned to our true feeling of peace.
