In this chaotic lifestyle, we keep wondering what peace would feel like. Is it all about silencing your mind and muting your thoughts? Is peace somehow related to silence? Maybe. But maybe not.
Maybe peace is related to the happy chaos.
What is happy chaos?
There are two types of chaos. One, the chaotic chaos that we experience almost every day in our life and for the majority of one’s day. This is the type that segments from the stress, pressure, and the fear of no-time-left that we build up every day. Chaotic chaos is the bad type if you can’t already figure that out.
Then there’s happy chaos. Happy chaos is a state of chaos that doesn’t feel like chaos. Yes, too much repetitiveness in just one sentence but sometimes repetitiveness is good. Like being repeatedly happy is good!
Happy chaos is what you experience sometimes but when you do, you remember and reminisce it like ‘the good times’.
This is the type of chaos that a sudden birthday surprise you receive from all your loved ones would garner–your house is packed with people happy for you and with you, people chattering and moving around while having an amazing time at your house. Even though you know you’ll be doomed in the morning when it comes to cleaning up all the mess, you don’t give a shit.
Because you’re happy!
And that’s exactly how happiness is connected to peace.
A happy heart and mind wouldn’t consider chaos as the chaotic chaos but as the happy chaos. Finishing an assignment with a happy mind will feel much less of a chore because your mind can’t resonate with how ‘difficult or boring’ the assignment is. Your happiness is like a blindfold on your mind.
Of course, nobody can be happy all the time. There are times when someone feels low and that’s perfectly normal because we’re humans, not synthesized beings. But it’s necessary to try being happy for the times when you aren’t brewing other emotions.
Try to bring a smile to your face, try to simply chuckle at the workload sitting at your desk, try to laugh at yourself for procrastinating, try to remember the good times so you can make this one a ‘good time’ too.
I’m not sure if doing this would help your productivity but I’m sure it would help you feel a sense of calm and inner-peace that everyone tries to find in other external factors when it’s right inside you and ready to be felt through happiness.
