    Let Jesus into your life. The son of God is the prince of peace.

    Inner peace can be found by your own attitude and efforts. If you concentrate on yourself and do meditation, you will start feeling the inner self of yours. Try to delve deeper to connect more and more with yourself. When you have a feeling that you have a full control over yourself, you can feel relaxed. This way you can find inner peace.

    Peace has to do with your attitude. If you decide to keep your peace no one/ nothing can take it away. 
    we may be shaken in the face of storms but one needs to understand and accept that there will be storms, hurricanes and tornadoes in life but they pass away. They are short term affairs, life goes on after the calm.
    For the unprepared and unsteady peace comes and goes but  but hangs around the mature and the ready !

    Start with five minutes and let me know what happens. . .

    Wouldn't it be great to pop 2 pills and poof -- instant peace? I have been in pursuit of that elusive son of a gun called inner peace my whole life; there have been moments when I've touched it and it felt like Nirvana; most times my monkey mind has control.

    I think the main key to achieving peace is to simply stop.  Stop our crazy pursuit of everything - and breathe.   

    I realized I needed to stop being a human doing and become a human being again. I made a promise to myself. Every single morning  even if it's only 5 minutes, I would sit on the couch in the the sunlight with my cats, savor my coffee and just be.

    You know something?  The quality of my life has changed.  I am more present in everything I do.  I'm calmer on the inside. I don't think that inner peace needs to be costumed in long flowing robes or you have to chant or hold your fingers in a certain position.  When you stop searching so hard and breathe, inner peace can come to you on little cat feet, like a wonderful gift.  Try it. 

    Start with five minutes every morning and let me know how it goes. I'm often intimidated by the hugeness of beginning any task.  So I'm learning to take it one tiny step at a time with my life vision as a focus. My five minutes has turned into 30 minutes, and sometimes it's an hour. I have no rules for this time, only that it's all mine to do with what ever I want. It's not a time to be productive, it's a time to dream, to imagine, to visualize and most of all, to breathe.

    Let me know how it works for you. . .

    Unconditional love of self and of all others is the simple answer to how to find inner peace. Inner peace is the lack of conflict within ones self. Most people have conflicts within them about things they have done and or the attitudes they carry in life.

    Forgiveness, Unconditional Love and acceptance of things for what they are is the way towards inner peace.

    One of my favourite musicians wrote a song and the chorus ended with the line "Why don't you look into Jesus?  He's got the answers."

    I know it isn't popular, but I find that peace comes through trusting in him to see you through.  Jesus said that he would give his followers peace that could not be taken away.

    That doesn't mean we don't lose it from time to time, as we lose our focus and trust.  But it is always waiting for us when we turn back.

    It also takes work since we have a tendency to try to do things all on our own.  When we're trusting in ourselves then we lose the peace.

    Anyway, you have a few good answers here already, but I believe that without Jesus at the center, all the other techniques are less effective.

    My experience is that inner peace is a result of being okay the way I am. Acceptance of self, understanding that to unconditionally love another, one must learn to love self unconditionally. When you realize that you are okay the way you are--that you are enough for yourself--you see yourself for all the wonderful things--and flaws--that you are. And it's okay. When you are okay with you, you are connected to something greater than yourself, whether you call it God, the universe, or whatever, it's wonderful. You become what you seek. You are the answer to your problems, questions and curiosity. When you realize that, you're available to be at peace with the world and all its creations.

    You must follow your bliss.  Robert Bly says we need to do what we love. Most of us hubbers love to write. Writing is a way to find inner peace.  Being true to ourselves. Being authentic and showing who we are in each facet of our lives. 

    Love and work are so important as Freud says.  Hubbing and loving the people that make you feel good about yourself.  Chop of the fat, or those friends that pull you down.

    Find your purpose.

    Hi Frogdropping
                 What an interesting question.!
    Persoanlly I think inner peace goes hand in hand with a calm heart.
    Having a calm heart in the 1st place is not always easy for most of us., but it can´be achieved if we´re not born with a ´laid-back´
    personality.
    Some experts believe that a person who wants to quit smoking should 1st realise that the initial drag on the cigarette, takes a really deep breath and it´s actually the deep breathe that brings about the calm feeling.... I´ve never smoked , but I do know that being told to take 10 deep breathes before an exam worked wonders-,.......
    I´d like to write a hub on this, with your permission, since you brought the subject up.
    Inner peace has to be the ultimate in living a happy life in this crazy world.
    Great question. I would enjoy writing about it., Maybe include some things I learned while in India. (Not under the influence of anything illegal) That would too easy would´n´t it? Just remain stoned......
