All of us go through different emotions. It is up to us to keep emotions in check. It is important to keep emotions under control by just observing them. Life will put us through different situations and so one must be willing to keep negative emotions under control. If you have a lot of negative energy flowing around you, your mind will not be peaceful.
Purify your mind
If you are looking for enlightenment, you have to purify your mind from within. As long as you are obsessed and attached to the quantitative tools of success, it is not possible to seek enlightenment. Enlightenment is not about being on top, but it is a journey of knowing it all.
Nature and Peace
The power of nature is very large. Although not required, it is recommended that you practice meditation by sitting in the serenity of the atmosphere for hours. Let the fresh air surrounds you and breathes the beauty of nature. You can feel a strong sense of tranquility and natural forces build up around you.
