This article is based on a beautiful speech by Dr B M Hegde about how to lead a peaceful life.
What is a peaceful life means?
Do you wake up in the morning feeling stressed? Do you find it difficult to concentrate better on your work because of the unwanted thoughts coming into your mind? Are you not able to sleep at night because of tensions in your mind?
According to you what does it mean to live a peaceful life? Money, wealth, status, social networking? None of these will give you a peaceful life. All these will give you temporary happiness only. Being in harmony with yourself and the surrounding world is the only way for living a peaceful life. So, peace begins within your mind. Once your mind is at ease and peaceful, you will find the effects in everything surrounding you. If you have a peaceful life, that doesn’t mean you have a perfect life, but how you handle things around you. How you grow self-love, turn failure into success, cope with anxiety, control anger and other such things are the stepping stones for making your life peaceful.
How To Lead A Peaceful Life?
All things in this world have a very simple solution. Be complicated, anything in a very complicated problem is a very simple solution but if you ask a specialist for a solution he will complicate the solution to a problem. We are born to last as long as we can survive in this world. Do you think the human body is made because of the doctor, the medical colleges, that tests, that operation, the surgeons, and things like that? No, we are made to be our own and we are born with a doctor inside. This is the most important thing. And this doctor is so powerful that it can correct any disease from the common cold to cancer only if you keep your mind clear.
Ayurveda so beautifully says it, “you get up in the morning, and you shit well, you piss well, you eat well, you drink well, you work very hard, sleep very well, and then don’t hate nobody, you will live as long as you live.”
There is an Irish couplet that so beautifully says it “I eat when I am hungry, drink when you are thirsty, if heavens don’t fall down, you will certainly live well till you die.”
Can you try all these methods including NONI and be here forever without dying? NO.
Bernard Shaw beautifully wrote:
Do not try to live forever. You will not succeed.George Bernard Shaw
Just imagine, if all people born don’t die, there will not be space even to stand. So death and birth are two things that are not in our control.You must remember one thing that when we came here we came with nothing, not even underwear, and when we go from here we go with nothing. But in between, we do so much monkeying that we invite all kinds of diseases. Click To Tweet

Have you heard about Stephen Hawking?
Stephen William Hawkin was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, and author who was director of research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology at the University of Cambridge at the time of his death. This man had a Peculiar disease when he was just 24 years old, known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease), a fatal neurodegenerative disease that affects the motor neurones in the brain and spinal cord, which gradually paralysed him over decades.
Most people with ALS die between two and four years after the diagnosis. Around half of the people with ALS die within 30 months of their symptoms beginning, and about 20% of people with ALS live between five and ten years after symptoms begin. Stephen Hawking lived for 55 more years following his diagnosis, but they are considered unusual cases. Source: Wikipedia
Our ingress into the world was naked and bare; our progress through the world is trouble and care; our egress from the world will be nobody knows where; but if we do well here we shall do well there.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
What is your aim in life?
This is life. We predict the unpredictable future of human beings, nobody can predict the future. So don’t worry about death.
So our aim in life to have a contented life is to do well here. Death is not impossible, possible.
You are born with your own doctor, not your family doctor, your personal doctor is inside. Where is he is the question? We are a colony of beautiful 50 trillion cells, happy jumping 50 trillion cells in different parts of the body. These 50 trillion cells love one another so much, they dance with one another. When they don’t jump and sing, one is angry with the other, which means you are not well. So health is when your cells love one another and they work together and that is the beauty of your body.
All these things are controlled by the human mind.
