We live in an ever-changing world. The impermanent nature of everything on planet earth is part of why we chose this experience. It’s a bit like my shape-up workout shoes. They have a rounded bottom to them and they make it less stable for me to walk, which makes me use my core more and that strengthens me.
We can decide to use the life’s weather and weirdness to help us to become stronger. We can be like the trees, who receive great benefit from having the wind and elements challenging them to grow stronger and more resilient to even the harshest weather.
Year’s ago I set the intention to *become peaceful. I felt ready. It was such a great decision!
Through my commitment to being peaceful I was able to recognize the opportunities to choose Peace. Having a clear and strong intention is so helpful!
As I talked about in my Freedom From Fear class the other day, I used to torture myself, and everyone around me by getting upset and venting. It was a giant waste of energy and it really created so much negative backwash in my life. I didn’t realize it at that the time.
I used to think that getting upset was my power. I’m so glad I’ve learned that Love is the ONLY power that there is. Peace is where it’s at, baby!
Now, I get such strength from practicing being peaceful regardless of what’s going on. It’s like getting a core workout. Once you develop a strong core, it’s MUCH easier to maintain it. In fact, with being peaceful, it gets easier all the time.
This practice of Peace is not about denying how you feel, it’s about placing a much higher value on Peace, Love and Harmony than on any emotional expression. I Love myself so much that I don’t wish to energize negativity because it’s unkind to myself.
When you’re willing, you can begin to practice the discipline of being harmonious. It requires the willingness to be compassionate.
You’ll realize that your emotions are the by-product of your INTERPRETATION of what’s going on. You’re only upset for the meaning you made of it.
Your interpretation is really your opinion.
Like the weather, opinions are always changing.
Why value what is ever-changing when you can value what is never-changing?
LOVE is constant.
Love is clear.
Love is never grasping and the active practice of Love is compassion, which leads to Harmony, which leads to self-esteem and abundance.
At some point, Peace becomes so valuable that no opinion is worth giving it up for. You can decide if today’s that day or not. You can choose to be unbotherable. Wouldn’t you really rather be unbotherable? Wouldn’t you rather live with an open heart? We’re doing it together!
Forgiveness is a big part of being able to be peaceful. Forgiving the debtors and the trespassers opens up the flow of Love and prosperity in your life. It’s not just a matter of willingness, it helps to know HOW to forgive.
Next week, I’m starting my summer Finding Freedom Spiritual Bootcamp. People are experiencing a lot of fear right now. And so I’ve dropped the price and added a really nice bonus in order to encourage more people to take the plunge and be ALL IN for Spirit and to STOP giving their power to false beliefs.
When we join together it works. It really does work. Let’s go for it!
