    *Is Physical Relaxation The Road To Peace?*

    Itís a common notion (idea) to think of peace as being closely related to
    the beauty of nature - the play of waves on a beach, the blowing of wind
    through a forest, the soaring and swooping of sea gulls; in short, anything
    away from the rush and hurry of the city. We also associate peace with some
    physical form of relaxation like headphones plugged into soothing music, a
    hot bath after a hard day, a brisk walk in the park, etc. *In meditation we
    realize peace to be our very essence (nature); we realize very
    quickly,* *trying
    to extract peace from the world around us or even from some physical
    sensations in our own bodies gives us only a temporary experience of i*t.

    Once we start meditating, we start to see physical relaxation as an *escape
    *from tension and not a *solution *for it; we no longer see the beautiful
    scenes of nature as sources radiating *permanent *peace. But in fact it is
    their mere absence of conflict, their harmony of colours, forms and sounds
    which temporarily appeal to us. There is something in each of us which cries
    out to be free from conflict. *We discover that "small voice" or need is
    only our true nature demanding to be recognized. *We realize that neither
    the body nor nature can give the peace that the soul was longing for, but it
    has to be tapped from within. Having found it, it remains constant, whether
    in the city or countryside, in comfort or discomfort. In the midst of noise
    and confusion, peace is really our own.

    Physical relaxation matters a lot and i think there are many ways to relax to your body when you are tired and you can listen music, go for driving, go on a beach, and can pray also. Because pray is the best thing that works out in physical relaxation.
