The ambassador of peace, Prem Rawat, said: "… without you, without your heart, without peace in your life, there can never be peace in the world." In other words, without inner peace in its citizens, the health of a country is at risk. In this article, let us see the relationship between inner peace and the well-being of our country.
Without inner peace, citizens are aggressive
Inner peace guarantees happiness. Without a feeling of tranquility, it is easy for citizens to become agitated by any problem, which may arise within their society or at the workplace.
As a result, it is common to see the political turmoil and economic crisis happen in a country where people do not really take time for themselves and find their inner peace. Obviously, it can be said that the more peaceful the citizens are, the healthier the country is.
Feeling zen, citizens are more creative
Tranquil people can live in harmony with each other; in addition, they can create an environment conductive of mutual help. Creativity is a great necessity in the development of a country. With internal peace, it is possible for an individual to create a feeling of great vitality and energy; besides, it can urge them to do good to humanity.
Thus, they purpose of their acts is not to accumulate their own personal belongings; instead, their endeavor aims at doing something better for their country. As a result, it can be said that if citizens feel zen, they are more creative.
Having peace of mind, citizens are more active
Self-actualization builds our well-being, it also strengthens the mind and restores good health. If our mind is at peace, the heart feels joyful. As a result, we can have a great energy to deal with our daily jobs. Such a positive state of mind has a great impact on the health of countries.
The more active citizens are, the healthier the economic situation of the country is. This is because if people are at peace with themselves, they will do well to humanity. It is not possible for any criminal or thief to have a peaceful state of mind. As a result, civil peace will make citizens more active, and it will eventually save the country from corruption.
Feeling serene, citizens are goal-oriented
Change occurs when citizens are focused on their goals. In other words, it is possible to keep your attention on your objectives when your mind it tranquil. It is obvious that people who can control their feelings and emotions have more acquaintances and often succeed in business.
Likewise, it is crucial that all citizens in a country, including the leaders have the inner peace that Prem Rawat is talking about in order to boost the economy of the country. Domestic peace empowers leaders to develop a country, just in the same way as it promotes physical and mental health of an individual.
Civil peace promotes efficiency
Stress is a negative feeling, which inhibits people from effectively undertaking their daily activities. However, serene individuals are more efficient in achieving their objectives. The feeling of mind tranquility prevents them from being stressed.
As a result, it can be said that if citizens have peace within, they will value mutual help and become more efficient in promoting sustainable efforts for the economic development of a country.
Domestic peace refrains people from conflicts
Serenity prevents people from having conflicts, even if the excessive oppression from their aggress or makes them feel bad. Instead of losing their temper, they manage to find peaceful solutions to any conflicts or disputes that may arise from social tensions.
Consequently, it is essential that citizens value their inner life for many reasons:
