With life moving so quickly these days, it's nice to have a touch point to bring us back to our spiritual center. Loving Each Day is a free, daily email designed to uplift, inspire, and remind you of your divinity and true nature.
Peace is present. Experiencing peace—that’s the goal. Whatever gets in the way of your experience of peace is yours to learn to handle. As you focus on peace, those things that are not peaceful will start dropping away.
Conflict can exist within peace. Don’t plan on there being no conflict in your life. You will have it, but you don’t have to have againstness about it. You can say, “I disagree with that, and that whole approach. I was there, and I didn’t see that.” That’s a form of conflict, but it’s not againstness. Againstness is more like, “You stupid idiot, I was there. I know what was going on. Wake up!” That’s againstness.
Practice using what I call the nine magic words. The first three are, “I love you.” The second three are, “God bless you.” And the third three are, “Peace, be still.” Say them silently when you are in situations of conflict or upset. These words are powerful.
Peace is your natural state. If you look out into the world for sensation, you can obscure that peaceful quality within.
If you would find peace, look within. Peace is not something separate from you.
When you awaken each morning, it might be nice if you asked for peace to be with you and all you touch that day. Asking for this attunement each day (it doesn’t matter what words you use), can change the quality of your life.
When you ask for inner peace, you may find yourself talking less. To find the peace within, it’s often necessary to be quiet so that you can hear the inner voice of love.
Peace, happiness, and love represent the inner world. As you tune to that inner world, you may begin to experience peace. The emotions subside; the mind becomes quieter. You may feel the Spirit touch you; you may hear a voice whisper, “Peace, be still.” You will know that you are awakening to your true self more and more.
Peace is the absence of againstness, internally and externally, but it’s not the absence of sand papering, refining and moving towards excellence. There can be divergent points of view without having war. I call it conversation, communication, dialogue and sharing ideas. It’s integrity, which allows all people their moment to speak their truth.
In the one accord of peace, we have to put aside righteousness, indignation, accusations, problems, inadequacies and insecurities. Wrap them up, put them aside and say, “Today I am not participating in those. I only have this one thing to do—and that is to participate in peace.”
