Quote by Amy Leigh Mercree: “Happiness is a choice. Peace is a state of mind...”
“Happiness is a choice. Peace is a state of mind. Both are free!”
Peace of mind is a state of mental and emotional balance and calm, free of worries, fears or stress. In this state, the mind is quiet, and you experience a gentle sense of happiness and freedom. Such peaceful moments are not as rare as you may think. You have experienced them at times when you were engaged in some kind of absorbing or interesting activity. Such activities, and similar ones, take the mind away from its usual thoughts and worries and replace them with an experience of inner peace. How can you bring more peace of mind into your life? And how can you experience it in times of difficulties and ordeals?

In modern age, our understanding and control of the external world have increased considerably. We have witnessed remarkable material progress, but there has not been a corresponding increase in human happiness. There is no less suffering in the world today, and there are no fewer problems. Indeed, it could be said that there are now more problems and greater unhappiness than ever before. When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations we tend to regard the situation itself as the problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficulties with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to situations with a negative state of mind.
