    On being asked by my friend, I am writing this article. It is about inner peace. If you believe this article to be the answer, it will surely be.
    At some point of time each and everyone of us arrive at this quest. But having a question in mind is not enough. Moreover it is very different from embarking an exploration towards inner peace. When there is enough strength in you to be persistent in your quest, it is only then that your journey is said to have begun.
    What does it take to begin this journey? The answer I give is "You"!!
    Is there a way to know what we really are? I give a Yes Yes to the question. For further clarity I would like to mention ways to satiate your materialism. We believe ourselves to be physical entities which is a conception in the first place. We tend to believe in what we see which needn't be the truth always. For the dictionary to hold a word that can explain this exploration of the self, we have the term MEDITATION.
    What is meditation and how do we practise it? Meditation is a "NO-THOUGHT" state. To achieve this state we inculcate a practice called ANAPANASATI. This practice was first given by the Buddha. It is a simple practice yet so powerful.
    Anapanasati means "To be with the in-breathe and the out-breathe". Closing our eyes and practising this technique gives a revelation of what we are looking for.
    Over time, we come to an understanding that there are no questions. We realize that our questions were never needed. The vitality of living in the present is understood and experienced.
    Hence Inner Peace is said to have been found.

Recollecting the happenings in my life, let me write this beautiful story. One day I entered a room, which was filled with darkness that seemed unlimited in all its dimensions. Nothing was visible. I stayed and lived in the place where anger, frustration and tears had no meaning. There was no one to listen or speak to. With the dreadful darkness around me the only companions were the hopeless, weak thoughts.
Suddenly there was a feeling of hope taking roots from where I am, when I found a candle. It seemed as though the strength of my emotion touched the plane of the heavens, which brought help. Now, with the candle lighted I was reassured that the nature was helping me. For once I adored, respected and fell in love with the candle which showed me the world. I could now enjoy every bit of my existence as the room was filled with exquisitely beautiful things. There were no more thoughts but only pure happiness and joy that ruled my kingdom of life. The candle now appeared as God. It felt as though there was nothing more beautiful and lovely than this candle that I respect the most.
In this mesmerizing flow of events, there was one thing that I forgot. I forgot that the candle cannot last for long and its existence on this plane is temporary. When I became aware of this little truth, I understood that even my existence on this wondrous plane was temporary. And before the candle has left me, it is me who is leaving the candle. This walk into a new room may bring many more surprises and the candle remains a memory in this illusory story of existence.
