Peace, Peace, Peace How can we establish a settled peace and silence in the mind ? First of all, you must want it. And then you must try and must persevere, continue trying…..You sit quietly, to begin with; and then, instead of thinking fifty things, you begin saying to yourself, “Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace, calm, peace!” You imagine peace and calm. You aspire, ask that it may come: “Peace, peace, calm.” And then, when something comes and touches you and acts, say quietly, like this, “Peace, peace, peace.” Do not look at the thoughts, do not listen to the thoughts, you understand. You must not pay attention to everything that comes. You know, when someone bothers you a great deal and you want to get rid of him, you don’t listen to him, do you? Good! You turn your head away (gesture) and think of something else. Well, you must do that: when thoughts come, you must not look at them, must not listen to them, must not pay attention at all, you must behave as though they did not exist, you see! And then, repeat all the time like a kind of – how shall I put it ? – as an idiot does, who repeats the same thing always. Well, you must do the same thing; you must repeat, “Peace, peace, peace.” So you try this for a few minutes and then do what you want to do; then, another time, you begin again; sit down again and then try. Do this on getting up in the morning, do this in the evening when going to bed. You can do like this…look, if you want to digest food properly, you can do this a few minutes before eating. You can imagine how much this helps, your digestion! Before beginning to eat you sit quietly for a while and say, Peace, peace, peace! And everything becomes calm ( Mother stretches out her arms on both sides) and then you must continue; and there comes a time when you no longer need to sit down, and no matter what you are doing, no matter what you are saying, it is always “Peace, peace, peace.” Everything remains here, like this, it does not enter (gesture in from of the forehead), it remains like this. And then one is always in a perfect peace…after some years.
