One of the most important gifts we can give ourselves is to find our peace & keep it.
Sure we may loose it temporarily for a moment or too, sometimes much longer!
I suggest that to find and have y/our peace, you need to desire it more than non peace.
If you do, you’re practically half way there don’t you think? It’s certainly a great place to start, you are already steering ahead and intentionally moving toward your peace.
I tell people, “Find your peace & from there make your decisions.” It will create a lot less regret & create more peace, harmony, satisfaction & life enhancement.
Maybe you just decide Peace is who you are, and going to be and that’s that. All things move from that space of decision.
It’s a fluctuating space too, but we can choose and create a peace that’s not so dramatic in it’s uPs and DOWns. Not so easily lost. Like all things it takes practice. We can start to move & practice toward a peace that is more stable, even under more seeming serious dramatic circumstances.
Peace is something we cultivate, nurture and look after. A few fine
folks just happen to have been blessed with a more peaceful nature. For the rest of us, we may need to play & work at it.
We seem so busy in our lives we don’t have time to go finding it. Yet we miss it. Long for it. Perhaps even dream & fantasize about having it. We go on vacations to get it.
Yet the busyness addiction or busyness excuse, keeps us away from it until another day. Don’t wait! Start with baby steps. From there move ahead. Peace & harmony are truly life and health giving states of being.
Perhaps it comes from turning off the television, or computer to let the shows, emails, Netflix movies, video games, ipods, Facebook, Twitter stuff off, at least for awhile! I have a friend who uses her Facebook twice a week on certain days. That keeps her in touch consistently without going to it so often as many do. Be creative.
Finding that peace does not mean you have to give uP fun & excitement. In fact, your underlying peace will enhance such states.
Sometimes when we decide to be peace, have more peace in our lives, just the opposite happens! We experience more drama and not peace. Why is that?
Well sometimes when we change our attitudes, beliefs, our unconscious may ask us if we really desire to let go of our negative drama by giving us dramatic examples of non peace.
After all, if we’re so use to years of less peacefulness, it’s natural for your unconscious to at least question a new direction & show us more of the non peace to make sure we want the new peace by giving us non peace contrasts so we can decide that is what we really desire.
Be sure to know, if this happens, you are still on the right path & the flame of the past non peace is about to go super nova, but before it does, it’s making a dramatic final showing before it goes!
I also see this as the chemicalization process in which old and new beliefs collide & temporary explode before the calming down. It doesn’t always happen but if it does, you know it’s temporary & soon will settle down.
How to find that Peace???
Make the commitment & the path to Peace for you will appear in a customizable manner just for you. Thanks to and compliments of the Universe, Life, God.
Experiment, be creative, have fun! You may have several things you do to keep & cultivate your peace.
Life has infinite resources with which to bless us & show us ways to customize more Peace & Harmony for us.
Trust that there is a part of you, an inner wisdom & intelligence that can find it with ease & pleasure. If it takes more effort & work it will be worth it & you already know that.
There’s just plain slowing down a bit, researching a Meditation
that you enjoy, or make one up that works & plays for you. Slowing down, being less fearful as a result of slowing down can create the luxury of more time. Consider not getting overly involved or over extending yourself in too many activities, find your balance, find your peace.
I am aware when I’m in the peace space & move into deep appreciation for it. There are many levels or degrees of peace & I don’t fault or condemn myself when I temporally lose it.
I may work & play to retrieve it back or acknowledge that while it’s seems to be gone, there’s also a part of it that is still with me. As I enjoy, become aware & embrace it when I have it, that helps sustain it by simply being aware & acknowledging it.
I may look to our cat for hints & reminders to be relaxed & at peace as I watch him meditate or what seems like joyful meditation lying in the sun or looking out the window & enjoying the summer smells & breezes. Or in the winter, watching the gentle snow fall create a sparkling wonderland of white or just watching the swirling snow spiral around like a dance to the ballet of life.
I’m thankful when I feel it more than usual & use those recall memories to remind me that I do get there more often than I use to & thus continue to nurture cultivate, sustain it more.
Love yourself enough to give your self the gift of Peace. -M
SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE
by Saskia Davis
Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts of a great many already have been exposed; and it is possible that people, everywhere, could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what, up to now, has been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.
Signs & Symptoms of Inner Peace
A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences
An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment
A loss of interest in judging other people
A loss of interest in judging self
A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others
A loss of interest in conflict
A loss of ability to worry
Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation
Contented feelings of connectedness
with others & nature
Frequent attacks of smiling
An increasing tendency to let things
happen rather than make them happen
An increased susceptibility to love extended by others and the uncontrollable urge to extend it
If you have some or all of the above symptoms, be advised that your condition of inner peace may be too far advanced to be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed only at your own risk.
