What is the strength in, brother? Balance and peace of mind are the sources of our self-confidence and power management. The secret to the power of calmness.

Most people will agree that they lack love. But why do we need peace of mind? Love and calmness are inseparable. Love is not the possession of another person. This is a state of harmony with the whole world and, above all, with oneself. It is the confidence that you are moving in the right direction. If we seek love, then we find peace of mind, and if we strive for peace, we find love.

First of all, peace is balance. The number one challenge for martial artists is to maintain balance. When you start karate, you will learn that strength depends on balance and a "cold" head. Add emotion and your song is sung.

Balance and peace of mind are the sources of our self-confidence. Calm does not mean sleepiness! Calmness is about managing power, not about confronting it. Calmness is the ability to see the big picture without focusing on details.

If you want to protect yourself from all adversity, you have chosen the wrong planet. Peace and confidence can only be found within oneself. There is no stability in the surrounding world, everything around is in a state of eternal change. How can we deal with the unpredictability of life? Only by accepting it! Tell yourself, “I love surprises. It's great when you know that at any moment something unexpected may happen."

Make a decision: "Whatever happens, I can handle it." Agree with yourself: “If I get fired, I’ll find a job with a freer schedule. If I get hit by a bus, I won't be here again. " This is not a mockery. This is the truth of life. The earth is a dangerous place. People are born and die here. But that doesn't mean you have to live like a cowardly rabbit.

How to achieve peace of mind? To find peace of mind, first of all, you need to change your worldview. It can also help with the habit of giving yourself a break every day. People who have achieved peace of mind often perform certain rituals. Some are praying, others are meditating, some are walking along the seashore at dawn. Everyone finds their own way of relaxation. This helps us to better understand ourselves and get to know the world around us.

Life will remain a struggle if we insist on it. Modern Western civilization has taught us to constantly strain. I do not argue with the fact that "you cannot easily pull the fish out of the pond." But before we start doing anything, we need to stop fighting everything and everyone. We grew up believing in resistance. We tend to rush things and push people. We exhaust ourselves, and this is more harm than good.

One young man traveled all over Japan to meet a great martial artist. After gaining an audience, he asked Master, “I want to be the best. How long will it take me?"

And sensei replied, "Ten years."

The disciple asked, “Master, I am very capable, I will work day and night. How long will it take me?"

And the Teacher replied: "Twenty years!"

Why Relaxation? Almost everything we do in life is a race for results. But deep relaxation, meditation, or prayer can help us take a fresh look at life. We expect that the future will bring us many pleasant moments.

However, our attention should still be focused on the present. As we practice deep relaxation, we will begin to notice that some of the qualities acquired through exercise gradually become habitual and change our daily life. We become calmer, we have intuition.

We all have an inner voice, but it is weak and barely audible. When life gets too hectic and noisy, we stop hearing it. But as soon as we muffle extraneous sounds, everything changes. Our intuition is always with us, but often we do not pay any attention to it.

I have noticed long ago that I feel more balanced and confident when I take time for relaxation, meditation, or prayer. Satisfied with the result, I soon stop praying and meditating. Gradually, my life becomes more and more stressful, I come to despair. Calm leaves me. Then I resume my relaxing activities and life gradually improves.

Many people go through this circle. From this we can conclude: "If you do not have time for relaxation - it is absolutely necessary for you."

Meditation will save you more time than you will spend on it. Make it a habit - tune yourself as you tune a musical instrument. Twenty minutes every day - so that the strings of your soul sound pure and harmonious.

Wake up each morning with the intention of being calm and balanced. On some days you will be able to hold out until the evening, and sometimes - just until breakfast. But if maintaining peace of mind becomes a goal, gradually you will learn this art.

Forces of nature. Have you ever noticed that you can wander in the forest all day and feel the influx of strength? Or spend the morning at the mall and feel like you've been run over by a truck? Vibration emanates from everything around, be it grass, concrete, plastic or polyester.

We catch her. Gardens and forests have a healing vibration - they restore our energy. The vibrations of concrete shopping malls are of a different type: they suck energy out. The vibration of cathedrals is directed upwards. Smoky bars and strip clubs leave the lion's share of your vitality.

You don't need to be a genius to understand: our health and outlook depend on the elusive energy of the environment. When we are full of energy, we can easily resist the illnesses and bad moods of others. If the energy is at zero, we attract depression and illness.

Greetings, deserted corner … It cannot be considered a mere coincidence that in the cultures of the whole world there is a tradition and reverence for solitude. During the period of initiation, both the American Indian and the African Bushman left their tribes, hiding in the mountains or forests in order to understand their destiny.

Great Teachers - Christ, Buddha, Magomed - drew inspiration from solitude, as did the millions of monks, mystics and seekers of truth who followed in their footsteps. Each of us needs such a cherished place where phones do not ring, where there is no TV or Internet. Whether it be a corner in the bedroom, a corner on the balcony or a park bench - this is our territory for creativity and reflection.

Since the 17th century, science has been armed with Sir Isaac Newton's method: if you want to understand something, smash it into smithereens and study the fragments. If this does not add clarity, divide into even smaller parts … In the end, you will get to the bottom of how the universe works.

But is this true? Take a Shakespeare sonnet and divide it into nouns, prepositions and pronouns, then break the words into letters. Will the author's intention become clearer to you? Divide the Mona Lisa into strokes. What will it give you? Science works wonders, but it also anatomizes. The mind breaks things apart. The heart gathers them together.

Health and wellness comes when we look at the world as a whole. This fully applies to our body, and to our life, and to all of humanity.
