You may find yourself high in the Himalayan Mountains or inside prison walls, yet there is no place where your loving truth is not. Your truth resides within you now, forever in loving and patient wait for you to turn within and acknowledge it. There is no one physical location whose truth is any different from any other location. In actuality it is what is within you, what you bring to a location, your mindset, not the location in and of itself that defines your experience. You may have been programmed, taught, and now believe, that a mountain is more beautiful than a building, or that a stream is more peaceful than a city street. If you have learned and now believe that, then so be it. But allow me to invite into the possibility of your mind, that if you choose to think this way, then you will find it more difficult to encounter peace and your truth in a building or city street, than you would in a mountain or stream. The choice for peace, no matter where you are, is always available to you. Your lack of peace in any situation, is not a result of that situation, it results from your belief that in such a situation, peace is not possible. The true factor in achieving peace is thus not where you are or what your situation may be, it is in your belief in the availability of peace. Make peace your constant companion, and you will have peace wherever you go. Peace is a choice, and not a result of your circumstances or location. Yes, you can blame your circumstances or location for your lack of peace, but in such cases, the blame is wrongly place. It is always you who has final say over the thoughts you think, and thus how they affect you. It is always you who can choose peace, or choose in that moment, to value something other than peace.
Today, if you find yourself in the states of conflict or despair, let us note that these states of mind do not care where you are. You could be on a busy New York street or overlooking a quiet mountain range. If these states of mind are ruling over you, then that is what you will experience wherever you are. Equally so, if peace rules your mind, both the busy New York Street and the quiet mountain range will be seen, experienced, understood and defined, through the lens of peace. Understanding this, let us no longer waste our time blaming anything or anyone outside of us for how we feel. Now, when frustration, anger, conflict or despair appear, let us look within to resolve those issues. It is within us where the true healing of this planet begins. Once our minds are heal and at peace, the busy New York Street, the quiet mountain range, that family member or co-worker, will all be seen and experience through the lens of peace. Imagine, never again having to blame a hundred different situations or people ‘out there’ for how you feel. Imagine, never again having to solve those problems ‘out there’ in a hundred different ways. Imagine, solving all those problems in just one way, by healing your own mind, by finding peace within. How much more control, safety, balance and peace, would you experience if you recall that the solution to everything you see ‘out there,’ is in every moment, within you? Once you heal your mind, and bring it into alignment with the state of peace, then everything you see will be experienced through the lens of peace. Peace is one of the many expressions of Love. Love is your Creator. You as Love’s creation, are forever worthy of the state of peace. Peace is your true Home. Once consciously aligned with the state of peace, you feel at Home wherever you go.
Today, let us recall that self-realization is simply the ability to see this world through the lens of our eternal loving essence. It is through this self-awareness lens that we see and experience peace and joy wherever we go. The light in us, exist within all. When we recall our loving nature, it is through this lens that we then view and interact with the world. Today, let us practice focusing on and aligning with this world through this eternal loving light filled lens. We will know when we are not seeing and interacting with this world through our eternal loving lens, when such things as judgment of self or other, frustration, conflict, anger, resentment and even hate, result. Still, let us choose not to judge ourselves when out of alignment with the truth within. Let us instead thank these energies and emotions for showing us that the state of mind we are currently supporting, is not supporting the life we want. Then, let us learn to use these out of alignment states of mind to trigger in us the desire to place our focus back on Love’s lens. Let these states of mind remind us that it is through Love’s lens that we truly desire to see, experience and participate in this world. Being our Creator’s Loving creations, we are here to create as the Divine created, through Love. We are here to help remind our brothers and sisters that creating and interacting with each other through love, in our own unique ways, is what we have come here to do. Today, it is Love’s expression of peace that we will focus on in order to help remind our brothers and sisters that peace is also, in every moment, available to them. When they realize that peace is in every moment available to them, together we will all help design a world where our children can safely and comfortably lives out their dreams.
Today, let us look not to change others or the physical expression of our interactions. Instead, let us simply change the goal for our interactions. Today, who we are with, or what kind of situation we find ourselves in, is not of primary importance. What is of primary importance is the attitude we choose to take in our interactions. When we make peace our goal, the interaction then becomes a means to achieve our goal. In this manner we help remind others that the state of peace is also, in every moment and situation, available to them. The more we remind ourselves that the choice for peace is always available to us, the more unconscious this type of choice becomes. Then one day it simply becomes our primary and natural response to each and every person and situation. This is how we best serve the world today, by showing others through our example, of the ever present availability of the choice for, and state of, peace.
