It it useful to think of the cost of a peaceful disposition in the same way as if we want a new mobile device or a desired pair or trainers. Just as we do not go to the shop and stand and beg the owner for it, but look for and ask the price of the item. We recognise that this has to be paid for. We use our hard earned money to purchase it, because we feel it is worth it. This we understand well enough, however we often forget that this is the same with spiritual gifts.
A desire for a peaceful disposition, or a self-enlightened and peaceful outlook, has a cost, and we likewise need to know the cost and seek out and secure the sum and be willing to pay it. The currency of peace is different but the principle of purchase is the same.
It stands to reason that you will have to find out the cost of a peaceful disposition and decide to pay the price or do without it.
What is the spiritual currency needed for the purchase of peace I want?
What should I do to earn enough spiritual currency and purchase a peaceful disposition?
