We don’t need to follow some guru to figure out what we need to work on and do to achieve a more peaceful state. We don’t need to travel to far off lands or sit in some mountain cave to receive clarity about our lives. We don’t have to pay thousands of dollars for some weekend workshop that promises us liberation from our confusion, sadness and pain. All we need do is pay attention to the now, and practice aligning it with our loving nature. You have co-created your journey with God, and thus there is no better place to work on your awakening, then in your every day life. Every day allows us the opportunity to create our own free personal spiritual development workshop. For example, if you desire a greater sense of peace in your life, you can sit down in prayer, meditation or just make a verbal request to the Universe for it. Many times you need not make any conscious direct request at all, for your highest self already knows exactly what you need to work on. The Universe will hear and answer your call, by bringing to you those people and situations that can best help you practice achieving the state of peace. Thus, if you are now, in one way or another, dealing with issues relating to peace and/or a lack of peace, such as frustration, anger, anxiousness and stress, then know that you have consciously or not, already made this request. Being that what you are dealing with, is something you have asked for, the proper response to receiving it, should be gratitude, not judgment of self or others. Having gratitude for the present moment, and all those participating in it, is a sign of self-awareness, a sign that you understand that what you are dealing with, is something that you yourself have brought into your life, to help you reach a deeper sense of self-awareness and a higher level of consciousness.
How many days have we wasted away in judgment of self or others? What we are not seeing, is that it is we who have, and always are, shaping our days, through the thoughts we think and focus on. Knowingly or not, our days are designed in order to provide us the greatest learning opportunities, for our growth, healing and awakening. Thus, no matter with how much judgment our ego tries to have us react to our experiences, they are all gifts from the Universe to us. Imagine, finally getting that the way you are seeing, experiencing and participating, in your day, is in the end, purely up to you to decide, purely a result of what thoughts you are entertaining within your mind. What other feeling than gratitude, could you express to the Universe, for helping you in such a direct and specific manner. All the Universe is doing, is helping you clarify which thoughts you are holding within that are helpful, and which thoughts that you no longer need to entertain, in order to help you reach your destination, the state of peace. The physical expression of your experience is God’s gift to you, where you can work on removing the barriers to the presence of peace. Properly perceived, the now, is your own individualized spiritual development workshop. Understand this truth as true, and peace and gratitude will become your response to the now, and to all those who are participating with you within the now. Imagine that, every day being your own spiritual development workshop, helping you become more of who you desire to be. How simply can our life get, when we realize, that all that we are being ask to do, is to let go of thoughts that don’t support the life we want, and support those thoughts that do help us achieve our goals? When you realize, that the now, the present moment, is God’s eternal gift to you, what but appreciation, would you have for your Creator?
Today, let us begin to awaken, by making the conscious choice to let go of the false perception that things are happening to us, and instead align with the true perception that things are happening for us. Forgiveness as an expression of Love, is a tool that has been gifted to us, to help us turn all of the ego judgments and confusion, into peace and clarity. Forgiveness helps us overlook what is false, so that we can focus on what is true. Forgiveness is the doorway from the ego’s illusionary fear based world, to reality, to the world that God has gifted to us, to help us awaken. Forgiveness opens the door to knowledge, to what is truly going on. Knowledge is simply the realization that God’s will for you and your highest will for yourself are One. It is the realization of this Oneness or Unity with Source, that will ultimately return you to the state of peace. You will know when you are on your way to greater peace in your life, when gratitude starts becoming your primary response to the present moment. Gratitude, is a way of saying to God, that you understand that everything He is presenting to you, is here to help you become who you came here to be. Today, let us realize, that every day, every moment, thanks to free will, it is we, who though our own thoughts, and the attitude that we choose to take, are responsible for the world we see. Let us understand each day as a sacred growth workshop, as a gift from God to us, created to help us awaken to our true nature. Then let us share our knowledge with others, so that they too may begin to see, the present moment, as the gift that it is.
Today, let us practice, awakening to the realization, that the present moment, is God’s gift to us. The present moment, is when properly perceived, an individualized spiritual growth workshop, specifically designed by God for us, to help us grow, heal and awaken. Each and every moment, situation and interaction, is here to help us achieve a deeper sense of self-awareness and a higher level of consciousness. When you see the present moment, the now, as the gift from God to you that it is, your response to it will become that of gratitude. When your response to the present moment is gratitude, peace results. Thus, to begin to experience a world at peace, you must first bring peace to your own mind. Once you heal your mind by aligning it with your loving nature, you are in essence aligning with the Mind of God. It is from this healed state of mind, that a peaceful and healed perception of this world is realized, and where you can, through your example, begin to create, a Heaven on Earth.
