Peace in such a disruptive world can be almost impossible to achieve, in fact many people don't try to pursue it because it appears unreachable.

The truth is that it is possible to obtain peace but one must first become in tune with themselves. One extremely important step is to watch what you say, the brain absorbs everything that you say every second, minute, hour of the day and if what it's coming out of your mouth is negative that will become the norm in your state of mind over time.

The "root"is perhaps the most important part, examine yourself what is making you uneasy, explosive, sad, and miserable? The root can be as small as someone teasing you back in grade school but if that chapter remained open that can still affect you in your adult life.

The world is insane but you can still have some sanity in it. Practice makes perfect, the same way you have repetitively told yourself or others negative remarks, the same way you can utilize it in to turning it around. Treat your negative thinking as if it was any bad addiction be diligent, consistent and focused.

The Detoxing stage, is the hardest as you try to convert what you're use too towards the unknown (positive thinking) Try saying positive things everyday to yourself and others even if you don't truly believe it your mind will start grasping the change and will slowly adapt to what you're feeding it.

Always remember you're what you think, don't let your thoughts defuse you from what you're really capable off obtaining.

Tranquility, serenity and freedom of disturbance. Whatever makes you feel relax in tune with yourself, where others can't interfere. Everyone has their own definition. This is my interpretation of "peace.

This is more a CBT approach (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) just wanted to note that. There's more steps but it's way too long for me to post, I know most won't read it.

Is it a "totalitarian style" of living-where everybody is forced to follow "one path"????

No, it all depends of the situation. In my observation alot of people that lack peace of mind are negative thinkers, and don't realize it. They can be people that have it all, great career a beautiful family and yet they may feel empty or miserable. I can't say that changing the way you think will solve everything but what do you have to lose? It reminds me of a great quote.

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

Which is the reason why many people and institutions hate being confronted with their own inconsistent words and philosophy.

They/these rather kill the messenger than dealing with their own reality.

What "depends on the situation"?

"Being forced to follow only one path"?

Do these people bitch and whine about "feeling empty and miserable"?

Or is it a personal observation not based on actual testimony?

I have to accept that adjectives such as "negative" and "positive" are opinions, most of the time.

Yes, CBT is not for everyone some people have deep rooted issues and may need other methods. I do know for sure that being negative just attracts negativity in your life. Some people find peace of mind through meditation when they have to empty all thoughts and become more in tune with their consciousness. So yes, it depends on the individual.

Some vocalize it but others suppress it, like putting a happy I have it all together mask. This has been my own personal observation and also testimony, I've literately went to work one day and just listened to every single word that was coming out of my co workers mouth, unbelievable, within every five seconds followed a negative remark towards themselves or others. I did research on CBT and it made a lot of sense it's actually one of the best approaches out there. The mind is extremely powerful people have no idea.

My question still stands.

Is it a personal opinion (a person's negativity) or is it based on testimonial fact (the person feels negative, has unresolved "deep rooted issues") and complains of "attracting negativism"?

Negative and positive are such personal opinions and over used terms.

Of course, if a person finds itself looking for help, is a sign.

It still amazes me the fact that some people "look and reach out for help" and yet resist it.

Socializing is a learned process and some people are taught (since childhood) to socialize thru "negative" criticism and mockery (even insults).

Gossiping is a way of life, especially in small towns and rural settings.

Your definition is of "personal peace".

And it applies to people with no conscience (who are unable to differentiate bad from wrong), at all.

I'm referring more towards the ones with negative opinions against themselves. They are over used terms I agree, but that simple word "negative" carries more weight than one thinks...

In fact, I tend to agree with your definition but then it raises in me more questions than answers.

So don't feel I'm confronting your shared messages. I'm confronting myself (thru you).

Excuse for not being more specific (up to now).

These terms such as "peace", raise in me as many questions as answers.

Ex Pope Benedict XVI always says that "MORALITY AND PEACE ARE NOT RELATIVE".

The man's a dogmatic (which has me questioning his true reasons for "renouncing").

So much for Einstein (and the 20th century revolutionary theory of relativism)-which impacted our "true selves" (all of us born and raised during that century).

20th century-the "relativism century".
