When you think of a pond with no ripples, or a sleeping baby, one word comes to mind – “Peace”. This weekend in America we celebrate Memorial Day to show honor to our military for fighting on our behalf, in wars against terrorism, mistreatment and injustice.

As a normal citizen, we are very thankfully although we live in a moderate life but we we actually live with lesser pressure compare to high profile people. We can change ourselves if we want to because the person who can change you is yourself. Try to find inspirational and make our life less with problems as possible. We actually can take good things as guidelines from several occasions. Movies thought us about life. Characters such as Betty (Ugly Betty) are suitable for low esteem girls who wanted to find inspiration, Grimson(CSI) had many philosophies to be think of and Bruce Wayne(Batman) that know how to manage life as a billionaire by day and a night crusader by night.

I am increasingly interested in why we have created a world where war and pain are default, while peace and serenity are on the outside of normal. Studying various spiritual beliefs and religion reveals that most fighting is the result of greed. One group of people wants things one way, while another group of people desires a different result. This is not our normal state of existence, yet we embrace the concept of fighting so very quickly.
But don’t expect miracles or a magic pill. The whole purpose of meditation is detaching yourself from outcome and just accepting things as they are. Having no outcome of the process of meditation is key to get the most out of it.
