There are two basic approaches to life. Both are well known and historically important. Since the earliest times, people have tested both and left behind a great repository of knowledge about their value and importance in securing our lives and minimizing our suffering. Both approaches are meant to shield us from the worries and anxieties of life created by the impermanence and uncertainty, and ensure our happiness, peace and Wellbeing. However, they adapt different methods and techniques to achieve this supreme goal.

Discern the silence hidden in the noise of life. You can awaken to the silence right now. All that you have to do is to sit quietly and discern the silence hidden behind all the noise that reaches your ears. We generally do not notice this silence. But to the discerning person this silence can be an ocean of peace. He can swim in that ocean and feel relaxed and energized whenever he wants. We are immersed in this oceans and hence, this silence of the universe never deserts us.

There are three selves in you and you are probably aware of them. First, there is the physical self consisting of your body and brain, or what you may call the physical mind. Next, there is the mental self, consisting of your mind, thoughts, perceptions, feelings, memory and subconscious. Then you have the observing self, different from both, which you may discern at times in your meditation. The best way to enter this state is by focusing your mind upon your breathing and slowly becoming mindful of what is happening in you and around you. Another approach is to practice the "Not This, Not This" method (neti neti) mentioned in the Upanishads and remind yourself that you are not your mind and body. If you persist in your practice, gradually the idea will take root in you and you will become detached, composed and collected in your daily life, relationships, thinking and actions. You will bridge the gap between the observer and the observed, and grasp the essence of things that is not perceptible to the ordinary senses.

If peace is all you want, then you will have it. Peace will come to you and become your essential nature only when you make it the foundation of your life, when you plan and build your life around a center of peace.  It begins with the thinking, "I may have everything in my life, I may pursue whatever I want in life, but for me peace is before all and peace is foundational and the most important."

Life is a combination of these three processes: random events, mechanical processes and intelligent actions. Probably the random events are also mechanical processes; but at this stage we do not have the knowledge to know as such. We have to understand how these three processes govern our lives and how we may use intelligence to interfere with random and mechanical events. Intelligent actions are responsible for our karma.
