Symptoms of Inner Peace


Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace.
The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to inner peace. It is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions.
This could pose a serious threat to what has, until now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.



A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment
A loss of interest in judging people
A loss of interest in judging self
A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others
A loss of interest in conflict
A loss of the ability to worry (This is a very serious symptom.)
Frequent overwhelming episodes of appreciation
Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature
Frequent attacks of smiling
An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than trying to make them happen
An increasing susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

Just peace.....just a silence......

"Just this moment, when this silence pervades, who are you?
A nobody, a non-entity.
You don't have a name, you don't have a form.
You are neither man nor woman, Hindu nor Mohammedan.
You don't belong to any country, to any nation, to any race.
You are not the body, not the mind.
Then who are you? In this silence, what is the taste of you?
How does it taste to be?
Just peace.....just a silence......
and out of that peace and silence a great joy starts surfacing, welling up, for no reason at all.
It is your spontaneous nature."

(Osho: The Book of Books, discourses on the Dhammapada, June 29, 1979)
