Daily Inspiration: August 31. Peace Results from Self-Realization not Location
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 truly makes the difference in 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, and that is just a false concept that you have been taught to believe as true. 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 is a result of your belief, that in such a situation, peace is not available. The true factor in achieving peace, is thus not where you are or what your situation may be, the true factor resides in your belief in the availability of the state of peace. Make the conscious decision to 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 those thoughts will affect you. Thus, it is always you who can choose peace, or choose to value something other than peace.
Today, if you find yourself in the states of conflict or despair, these states of mind do not care where you are, be it a busy New York street or overlooking a quiet mountain range, you will still experience both of these environments, because your mind is focus on conflict or despair, through the lens of conflict or despair. Equally so, if you are at peace within your mind, both the busy New York Street and the quiet mountain range will be experienced through the lens of peace. Let us thus no longer continue to waste our time blaming anything or anyone outside of us for how we feel, for our frustration, anger, conflict or despair, instead let us look to resolve all those issues by first healing our own minds. It is within us where the true healing of this planet begins. Once your mind is heal and at peace, the busy New York Street, the quiet mountain range, that family member or co-worker, they will all be seen and experience through the lens of a healed and peace filled mind. Imagine, never having to blame a hundred different things 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 and finding an internal sense of balance and peace. How much more control, safety, balance and peace, would you experience, if you but remembered that the solution to everything you see ‘out there,’ is within you? Once you heal your mind, and bring it into alignment with the state of peace, then everything that you view from within your mind, will be viewed through the lens of peace. Peace is one of the many expressions of Love, and Love is your Creator, thus you as God’s creation, are forever worthy of being in and experiencing, the state of peace. In fact, Peace is your true Home, and thus why once consciously aligned with the state of peace, you feel at Home, at One with All, wherever you are and go.
Today, let us remember, that it is self-realization, the conscious alignment and decision to see this world through the lens of our eternal loving essence, where true ever-lasting peace of mind and joy can be experienced with everything, everyone and everywhere. Our eternal loving essence, the light that exists within us, is exactly the same light that exists within everyone, everything and everywhere, and so when we finally recall our loving nature, it is through this lens, that we will then view and interact with the world. Today, let us practice focusing on and aligning with, feeling, expressing and seeing, this world through this eternal loving light filled lens, instead of the temporal imaginary images that we have been programmed to see, judge and defend ourselves against. We will know when we are not seeing and interacting with this world through our eternal loving lens, when such things as frustration, conflict, anger, resentment and even hate, result. But still, let us not judge ourselves for being in and experiencing these out of balance states of mind, instead let us thank them for showing us that the state of mind that we are currently supporting, is not supporting the life we want. Such states of mind will help us practice consciously leaving these pain filled false concepts behind, and deciding to return our minds to our natural state, to using the lens of love, and recalling that it is through this 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 He created. We are here to help others recall that creating and interacting with each other through love, is what we have come here to do. Today, let us practice creating through love, and its expression of peace, so that through our example, we may help remind others, of their true loving nature and Home.
Today, let us look not so much to change the world, but to change our minds about the world. By doing so, it will help us start to see, that if we can change our thoughts about the world we see, and how we interact with and within it, then we can change, through our example, the world itself. Today, who we are with, or what kind of situation we find ourselves in, is not of importance, what is of importance is the attitude we choose to take when interacting with them. Today, our goal is both, to consciously remain aligned with the state of peace, and to become an example to others, that the mindful choice for peace, in any situation, is always available to them. The more we make the conscious decision to remind ourselves that the choice for peace is always available to us, the more unconscious this choice will become, until one day it will be simply become our natural go-to expression. Yes, we do make this choice for peace for ourselves, so that we may experience more peace in our lives, but we now also know, that we are all One, and so what benefits one of us, benefits all of us. This is how we serve the world today, by helping, through our example, guide it back into alignment, with the state of peace.
