    Peace of Mind or Life As You Know It?

    Would you give up your life as you know it to have peace of mind?

    Like if you have a life you hate and could pick peace of mind. Why would you not? Unless you have kids? Why would anybody pick their everyday life over having a new one with peace of mind?

    If you have a life that you hate... I can see that. What if you have a life that you like?

    Re: Peace of Mind or Life As You Know It?

    It depends.

    I already have peace of mind. Life can be difficult, yes... but I don't usually let it get to me, and when I do my perturbation is rarely more than temporary.

    Sometimes you do have to sacrifice some things for the sake of peace of mind. I had a supervisory job where I was pressured to compromise some of my core principles. I struggled with this until one night I could not sleep... until I finally decided that my position was not worth compromising core principles for. I quit that position the next day, and I am a much happier man for it, even though it cost me some money.

    When I was in my early 20's, there were a couple of friends I had to set aside for similar reasons. I had grown up and changed and they hadn't and didn't want to... and for my own peace of mind and principles I had to let them go.

    So, in a sense it depends on what you mean, what the exact circumstances are. Are you considering joining a monastic order? Some find it to be a very rewarding life.

    Then I would say stick with the life you like and never have peace of mind. But do you really wanna DIE never having it? I don't.

    But if I like my life, I already have peace of mind. The two go together.

    Perhaps I don't understand what you mean by "peace of mind".

    Accepting that life is difficult and learning how to deal with or change those difficulties is peace of mind.

    If you had a life with no challenges, then boredom would create its own challenges.

    It almost sounds like a "do you agree that ignorance is bliss" type of question...in which case I would say no.
