Can I just tell you how glad and grateful I am? I am so grateful that I can choose Peace instead of needing to be right, more and more and MORE! I’m not 100% yet, but I’m getting closer and I’m so grateful!
ANY time that I can choose to be compassionate instead of needing to be right or to work my will I feel victorious! I celebrate my win!
It’s really about deciding that Peace is more important.
We learn there’s no value to being right all the time. NO VALUE at all. There’s extraordinary value in being compassionate.
The more that I love myself and nurture myself, the more I am inclined to choose Peace instead of conflict.
All conflict in the world comes from thinking we’d like Peace but then not choosing it.
We say we love our loved ones, but then we’re mean, manipulative, uncaring, or disrespectful. Then we feel guilty. Then we feel bad. Then we feel angry about feeling bad and guilty because we know we did it to ourselves. And then, we punish them for making us feel this way, which just triggers more guilt because it’s not about them. We did it to ourselves.
It’s a cycle of punishment and acting out, and feeling guilty, bad, ashamed, resentful, regretful and on and on.
We interrupt the pattern by choosing Peace.
Peace is our natural state and we can remember it.
Life is loving us by triggering us so that we’ll get into the habit of choosing Peace and heal all the triggers.
Can you share an example of choosing Peace that inspires you?
