The inner self is trapped under deadlines, obligations, and technology exposure. This makes it hard to find stillness and enjoy life. Here are three easy to read books to help you find peace within.
1. Stillness Speaks – Eckhart Tolle
Tolle wrote Stillness Speaks to take small amounts of your time. It is divided into ten short chapters on the finding the peace through the inner self. He uses short spiritual anecdotes and paragraphs. In the introduction, he suggests not to read the book cover to cover but to go back to it frequently.
This book will make you understand the power of finding peace. Stillness Speaks made me realize how the ego prevents us from being in peace and getting in touch with my inner self. It is a great book to keep on the coffee table and read some of it before meditation.
2. The Art of Stillness – Pico Iyer
With the mind clouded by the stimuli of modern life, the inner self and the peace of mind are hard to get in touch with. Creativity and productivity are stagnant if we don’t take time to disconnect and recharge. A lot of good ideas come to the surface when we detach from overthinking.
The Art of Stillness tells the author’s story of a hectic and dynamic lifestyle that turned around when he found the joy in stillness. This book will make you realize that joy and happiness can be found in simplicity and peace. The thought of being with yourself for days at a time may seem scary for some. This book eases that fear, and makes you realize how wonderful it can be to just sit with the inner self.
3. Stillness: A guide to finding your inner peace – Joseph Kauffman
Maybe, you are aware of the power of stillness and its benefits in inner peace and happiness. But you need tangible guidance. Stillness: A guide to finding your inner peace will give you practical advice on how to find peace regardless of the circumstances.
It offers valuable information on balancing the inner self. The anxiety, fear, and unsettledness are everyday human experiences making us sick, harmful, and unhappy. Joseph Kauffman makes us realize that it is not our true inner self. In the stillness, we can find peace and be better towards ourselves and the world.
