When you seem to lack peace in any situation, do not despair. It is really not peace that you lack. You just lack the tools to see that the choice for peace is available to you. It is not peace that is not present and available. It is that the thoughts and attitudes you have been programmed to take in regard to that situation or interaction are blocking your awareness to the presence of peace. Once these blocks or false concepts are dismantled and let go, all that will remain is the presence of peace. As we continue to practice choosing to see and align with our eternal loving essence instead of our programs, greater peace will result. Love is who we were created to be, and peace is an expression of Love. The more often we align with who in truth we are, the easier it will be for us to focus on, see and achieve, the state of peace. Our level of peace actually has very little to do with the outer environment, and really much more to do with our own self-awareness. Today, let us recall that because Love has co-created our journeys with us, peace, as a natural reflection of Love, is always available to us. Once we start to see that the choice to focus on peace, even in our most challenging times, is always available to us, the more grateful we become to God, Love, for being our constant companion. Love, peace, joy, compassion and forgiveness are all symbols of our awareness of God’s presence in our lives. These are all choices that when we make, align us with our Source. It is aligned with our Loving Source where we truly belong. It is our Source that we have come here to represent, reflect and remind others of. It is this Oneness, belonging and security that brings about the state of peace. Our Creator is Love and All, thus whoever we are with, whatever we are experiencing, He is there with us. All we need do in any moment is to look His way to know that this is so.
It is our belief in the ego’s tools, such as judgment, anger, resentment and revenge, that act like blocks that obscure our light. The ego has programmed our minds to focus on these false concepts instead of our truth. This blocks our awareness to the presence of peace. The truth within us, in every moment, tries to remind us that because God is Perfect Love, every step along our path will be used for good. The more you trust that God will use all your steps for good, the more peace you will experience along your path. When you fully trust God, peace is all that you will experience. The ego’s mindset would insist that if your life is not going according to your plan, then there is something wrong and someone to blame. Blame, guilt and shame are some of the ego’s many false concepts. Each false concept that the ego supports has one main function – to block our understanding of who we truly are. When our self-awareness is blocked, the ego’s mindset reigns over us. The more the ego can fuel itself through you, the bigger part of your life it becomes. The bigger part of your life it becomes, the less you will be able to tell the difference between its false concepts and the truth in you. Another of the ego’s false concepts is that you and your brothers are separate. This way it can have you judge and condemn them, and still have you believe that such a behavior will not have a negative effect on you. What the ego fails to mention to you is that we are all One. You cannot achieve the state of peace when you are constantly unconsciously attacking yourself through others. The more you attack “yourself”, the weaker you will feel, and thus the more power the ego will have over you. This way the ego gets to live your life in place of you. The more the ego lives your life for you, the more disillusioned and disinterested you will feel and become.
Today, let us recall that we will only continue to react to the ego’s nightmare as long as we remain asleep to our true nature. Today, let us begin to awaken by realizing that when we choose to align with Love, and thus move in the direction of peace, of our true nature, the world itself will seem to “soften.” This softening does not occur because the world has suddenly changed its nature. It occurs because we achieve a greater level of clarity and self awareness about who we in truth are. We are the sons and daughters of Love. One of Love’s many expressions is peace. It is thus aligned with and sharing peace, where we truly feel at Home. Today, if we are experiencing any situation where we are not at peace, let us not judge ourselves, others or this world as bad, evil or unworthy of peace. Instead, let us recall that we are simply buying into a false concept or program as truer than our truth. We are valuing the ego’s plan for the universe over God’s plan. God’s will for you is in truth your highest will for yourself. They are One. When feeling lost and confused, choose to feed these feelings no longer. Instead, place all your doubts, concerns and worries in God’s hands. Trust that whatever He wills, will be. Trust that it will be in your best interest. Whatever He wills, so too does the truth in you will. Trust this, trust God, and encounter true and everlasting peace. This peace, being your inheritance is forever, and in every moment, available for you to experience, enjoy and share. Today, let us awaken from the ego’s delusion by consciously aligning with our loving and peaceful nature. Let us become the physical representatives of Peace on Earth. Through our example, by the way we treat others, let us lead all those that God sends our way, back Home to the state of peace.
Today, let us recall that because God is Love and All, that He is available to us in every moment and situation. Peace is an expression of Love. Thus if we are not experiencing peace in any moment or situation, it is not because peace is not available to us. It is because we have bought into the ego’s false concepts as real. In essence, it is our delusions that are blocking our awareness to the state of peace. We need not punish ourselves or others for placing these blocks before us. We simply need to recognize that through our misperceptions, we have done this to ourselves. Then, all we need do is forgive our misperceptions, and choose what brings us peace. Peace, thanks to it being our inheritance, is always there, just a choice away. In fact, because God is All that in truth is real, it is only the state of peace that is eternal and forever exists.
