What is inner peace? From my thirty years of Primal Therapy and counting, I learned that emotional inner peace is when you are non-struggling, have no defenses and have no tension in your body. As my therapist Tracee put it. When you attain inner peace, you handle life like a gently running stream that bounces off sets of rocks in the water and proceeds on its way & unfazed. From my twelve years plus of climbing the spiritual ladder, inner peace has an entirely different definition than the one I learned about in therapy. It is discovering God and developing an unshakable faith, trust, and love in Him while you gain an incredible self worth and self esteem for yourself. Once you start climbing the spiritual ladder, you will reach a point where you find yourself requesting to be guided by God. You actually merge with God so that you never face anything alone even when it seems that He is not there. No matter what happens, good or bad, you then accept life because all events turn out as they should.
When everything was finally running smoothly in the present after a lifetime of physical and mental torture due to a neurotic upbringing followed by a relentless Bipolar Disorder, I felt that I actually was very close to achieving total emotional and spiritual inner peace. The bottom fell out when my wife Marcia died of liver cancer almost eighteen months ago. My unshakable faith in God remained but my emotional stability virtually disappeared. Though her soul from the spirit world is in constant communication with me by direct thought-energy telepathy, a deep sadness set in with my love and soul mate no longer with me in our physical world. Having kicked out Bipolar Disorder out of my body through Divine Providence, the spirituality that I acquired these last twelve years has prevented my return to the severe agitated clinical depression that almost took my life in 1995.
I realize now that having just the spirituality part is not enough to give me complete inner peace because God gave me human emotions. From what I have read about the famous Chassidic rabbis of past generations, just about all of them were happy spiritual souls living unhappy lives. I take this to mean that when we choose to live in the passion of the physical world, we will have moments of happiness and periods of unhappiness. If you abdicate from the physical world, as Buddhism preaches, it is true that you can find peace solely in the spiritual world. However, when you choose px7 primal flow reviews to live in the physical world, you bury as much pleasure as you do pain.
If you have followed my writings on our website and books, you will realize that God has a fail-safe plan to give those of us who have acquired spirituality & eternal life in the Messianic Age. It occurred to me while writing this article that His plan also guarantees happiness. Marcia and I wrote in Putting God Into Einstein’s Equations: Energy of the Soul that happiness like love originates in the Divine soul energy of your heart. The additional soul energy that God will provide those worthy to be admitted into the Messianic Age will not only give us eternal life but also a blissful and joyful life. In the Bible, God states through His Prophets that He will give us a new heart and a new spirit. Our interpretation of this prophesy is that God will open our hearts to receiving more soul energy in the form of a new spirit, a new soul. We shall truly become spiritual beings living a human life and not just human beings having a spiritual experience.
Peace of Mind:
While we are awaiting the future Messianic Age, we still have to live in this world. We need peace of mind when a crisis strikes and the bottom falls out as it did for me when I lost Marcia. Peace of mind is one step below inner peace, but we humans will take whatever we can get because we desperately need some semblance of tranquility. Otherwise no day will seem worth living and we shall be passing through life in agony until a moment in time beckons us to depart this earth. I believe that God is in charge of death and if He decides that He wants to retrieve our soul from either our diseased or healthy body, nothing in Heaven or on Earth can prevent us from dying. Moreover, we don’t even have to die. In the Bible God takes Elijah the Prophet to heaven while he is still alive. It is written that Elijah will enter the walled city of Jerusalem to proceed the Messiah by a matter of a few days to herald in God’s future Messianic Age.
Suppose your peace of mind is being trampled on by a bout with cancer. Wouldn’t you want to know that after medical treatment you are one-hundred percent healed and that your cancer will never return again? No doctor can make such an optimistic claim. They can only offer you possibilities and probabilities because that’s what the future is – a series of probabilities. If the peace of mind can’t be absolute, then we’ll usually settle for the next best thing – partial comfort and more time on this earth. I think it’s so wrong for doctors to give a time limit on a spiritual person’s life when God holds the keys to the kingdom on birth and death.
If given a choice to be healed by yourself, other human beings like your traditional doctor and holistic practitioner, or God, would you choose God or a combination of treatments that includes God’s help? If you were a non-believer and anti-God the chances are that you would not call upon God even if He was your last chance to survive and live. Then again if it really came down to that final moment when all your usual anti-God hoopla and rhetoric couldn’t keep away the panic and terror crawling inside your loins, you might then cry out to God or at least have silent thoughts about a Higher Power Who could save you. Is the old adage true, “There are no atheists in foxholes?” Most people, believers and disbelievers, cling to life in this physical world with all of their might.
