    What does it mean to  have peace within?

    "The life of inner peace being harmonious without stress is the easiest type of existence."

    It is an understanding that peace is a state of mind and feeling. It has nothing to do with the external world. It has everything to do with the thoughts the person is thinking. If one thinks peaceful thoughts, they will have inner peace. If one thinks troubled thoughts, they will have no peace.

    It means to stop struggling with your inner self and start living:) Our mind is predispositioned to constantly take us back to the past or warn us about incoming future so we tend to spend the most of our lives 'locked in our own heads' oblivious to surrounding and what is actually happening around us.

    When you are able to 'make peace with your mind', being thankful for all those memories and warnings it produces to keep you out of danger, but also being more mindful of presence and take everything what presence throws at you calmly and open-mindedly...then you find your contentment with past, future but also your presence....

    It is being without ego.

    Ego is that part of us which is temporary and vulnerable, other than the Homo sapiens body.

    Ego is that part of us which says, "Notice me." Ego lives to be right.

    Inner peace is the true self (soul, Holy Ghost, immortal spirit, child of God) reawakened.
