Daily Inspiration: August 3. Making Peace and Joy the Goals for Your Interactions
If you desire to experience more peace of mind and joy during your day, then choose to proactively make them your goals, for more of your activities and interactions. For example, today before any interaction, first set your goal for that interaction, by saying to yourself: “Above all else, I desire to experience peace of mind and joy in this interaction.” Now, you are going into the interaction, with your goal already set. Now, the interaction, becomes a means to achieve your goal. The more that you proactively set the goals for your daily activities, the larger part of your day, you will be focused on achieving those goals. Moving from a reactive to a proactive state, will move you from feeling like a victim to the world that you are experiencing, to creating the world that you want. When you are no longer in a reactionary state, you are no longer captive to the ego’s past programs and mindset. Now, it is you, through the goals that you set, who is in control of your experience. Now, when the interaction itself starts to shift away from your goal, you can stop yourself, and refocus on the goal that you have set. In such interactions, when we find ourselves out of alignment with our goal, we do not use judgment or criticism, for those we know are the ego’s tools, and the ego’s tools do not bring us the peace of mind and joy we want. Instead, because you are now consciously aware of your goal, you will, during the interaction, look for ways to shift the interaction, in the direction of your goal. This conscious and continuous redirection, will keep you focus on achieving your desire outcome, and thus giving you clarity, confidence and more control over, the world that you are experiencing.
In order to achieve true peace of mind and joy in an interaction, we must always be respectful of those participating in the interaction. Being that we are all One, showing respect to another, is unconsciously training us to understand that we too are worthy of respect. A way to show this respect is through the act of listening without judgment or interruption. When you are being respectful, because respect is an expression of Love, you are equally aligning with peace of mind and joy, which are also both expressions of Love. When others in the conversation start to move it in a more conflict focused direction, remind yourself that conflict is not your goal, and consciously look for a way to begin to lift the conversation into a higher vibration. Your efforts to keep moving the conversation into a higher vibration, in the direction of Love’s expressions, will naturally bring to you greater peace of mind and joy. You do not need to verbally express your goal to others, but during your conversation, you can consciously use specific words and signals that are in the vibrational neighborhood of Love, such as words that are kind, compassionate, forgiving, understanding, peace filled, and joyful, that used along with an inviting smile, will help to gently lift, shift and guide, the conversation in the direction of your goal. If others keep on being critical, or are trying to move the conversation into a lower vibration, do not join in, do not judge them for their seeming unconsciousness, simply silently forgive them, and gently hold and visualize them surrounded in a loving, joyful and peaceful white light. Then visualize that sleeping part of them being embraced in this light, caressing and healing their internal wounds.
When those in your presence are talking in unkind ways about others, no matter how much the ego tells you to agree with them, do not join in. Joining in the darkness will not lead you into alignment with peace of mind and joy, which are both expressions and symbols of The Light. Instead, courageous lead those who tried to have you enter darkness, out of the darkness, by discussing ways of how to help those that others may be judging. Become the hero of your journey, by leading those in the darkness, through your example, back into alignment with The Light, their true Home. Lead by showing compassion, to those they curse, and thus help shift their minds, from a place of confusion, condemnation and darkness, to a place of clarity, forgiveness and light. Keep reminding yourself throughout the encounter: “Above all else, peace of mind and joy, not judgment and regret, are my goals.” When your focus fails and you temporarily fall back into the ego’s judgment pit with them, again do not judge yourself, simply catch yourself as quickly as you can when in this mindset, forgive yourself and others, stop feeding it your thoughts, words and emotions, and right your ship to once again align with, and head in the direction of, your goal. End every encounter with a silent prayer of gratitude for those who are helping you recall, that peace of mind and joy, thanks to free will, are always just a choice away. The more we proactively practice being who we want to become, the sooner we will reach our goal. Finally, always look back at and review your interactions, figure out what you did right, what you can improve upon, and how you can be more attentive, loving, compassionate, peaceful, joyful and of service, next time around. The more you practice aligning with your loving nature, the more joyful and peaceful you will become.
Today, let our goal be to bring more peace and joy to ourselves and others. We do so through a four step process. First, we set our intention or goal before going into any interaction. Second, we make a concerted effort to always be consciously shifting the conversation or experience towards a higher vibratory state, in this case those of peace and joy. Third, mentally we offer gratitude to all those involve in the interaction, for helping us realize that we can indeed design what we desire to experience. Fourth, after the interaction, we review it, in order to see where, in which aspects of the experience, we could have more closely aligned ourselves with the energies peace and joy. We use these reviews, not to put ourselves down or become regretful, but instead to reinforce and strengthen our resolve, that it is indeed we, who have the power to design and direct, the type of experience we want.
