Perhaps one of the hardest goals in this life is the pursuit of inner harmony. Many have laid claim to the true path to harmony. Religion, consumerism, and philosophy all promise a life full of happiness, calmness, and serenity. In actual fact, if you think you’re ever going to achieve total inner harmony, you’re probably going to be disappointed. But while seemingly unattainable, you can still pursue inner harmony at every turn. We’re going to give you a few top tips to help you on your way to absolute bliss, including:
- What to aim for
- What to avoid
- How to keep yourself sane on the way.
The first thing to point out is that we are all deeply flawed. Learn to accept this, and many of those endless worries will fall away. It’s a hard thing to get into your head and harder still to keep there. But we all have to accept that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and no matter how hard we try, eventually we’re all going to fall short at one point or another. Accepting that life may often feel like a series of defeats and failures is a major step towards understanding the true nature of inner harmony.
Self Knowledge Is the Key to Tranquility
Key to inner harmony is understanding yourself. We lie to others all the time, but none more so than ourselves. If you can learn to accept yourself, with all your inherent flaws and shortcomings, you may be able to finally understand exactly what you want out of life. If you can recognise your true desires, you can set your own goals and start off on the road to finding them. From there, true inner harmony will be just a step away.
The pursuit of these goals is key to reaching inner harmony. There’s no point in recognising what it is that you want out of life and not pursuing it. That said, we all have to set realistic goals for ourselves and know when to call it a day. You may feel like making your first million will lead to true happiness. In reality, if you lack the knowledge how to turn money into more money, you’re probably doomed to failure. Consider pursuing something more realistic, and you may find yourself coming up smiling.
Spend Your Time on This Mortal Coil Wisely
And these are just the bits about mindset. Equally important is how you spend your spare time. Surround yourself with enriching things and people. Read extensively, expand your music tastes, make some new friends, get drunk. All these things are sure to put your own life in perspective in a way that will give you a real clue to what the nature of harmony is.
