Catching Up to Peace

I am grateful to catch up to the peace in my life.

Everyone I knows is grateful to catch up to the peace in their lives.

Everyone I don’t know, all over the planet, is grateful to catch up to the peace in their lives.

————————

After feeling so busy and preoccupied with all the things there are to do, it is good to take a moment to catch your breath.

In fact, taking a few more moments may allow you to catch up on the peace that is available to you.

when I contemplate this fact, I realize that the peace is always there.

I just have to take the time to allow it into my life

Since the outside world is also rushing around with lots of distractions, the way to find the peace is to listen within.

This never fails.

It may take a little longer if I have neglected to make this time for myself, but soon, I can feel th peaceful Presence which always appears.

Spending time in the peace within always allows it to leak outside into my daily life.

When it does that, then I know I can take the next steps with guidance beyond my own personal opinion.

This gives me an even greater sense of peace.

As I settle down into my day, the peace stays with me and continues to invigorate me with its calm.

Catching up on the peace in my life is always a healthy and healing relief.

Harmony for All

I am grateful for the harmony that is part of my higher nature.

Everyone I know is grateful for the harmony that is part of their higher nature.

Everyone I don’t even know, all over the world, is grateful for the harmony that is part of their higher nature.

———————

We are all given harmonious moments of great beauty.

We do not see them all the time, but they are there.

When we are inspired, they become more visible to us.

When we are in despair, they are still there, but they are hidden behind our heavy hearts.

It is good to know that there is always a sense of harmony going on somewhere in the world.

It manifests in different ways.

The simple ways are the ones that are most consistent to see.

Simple acts of kindness can create not only good in one person’s life; they can collectively overflow to benefit many people.

A compassionate attitude helps create harmony for us and for others.

Simple considerations that express the idea that everyone has value adds to the harmony of the world.

We are all becoming more aware of the possibilities of harmony as we confront the values around us.

Decency and Respect

I am grateful to respect others and treat them with decency.

Everyone I know is grateful to respect others and to treat them with decency.

Everyone I don’t even know, all over the world, is grateful to respect others and to treat them with decency.

———————-

There are ways we are taught to behave based on our respect for others.

We treat others with decency and we live with the promise that we will be treated decently as well.

Making assumptions based on selfish interests alone has no place in personal behavior or in any form of leadership.

I am grateful for these principles which govern my life.

It allows me to be generous with others and to expect generosity in return.

Even if I do not receive generosity, I still prefer to give it.

Being generous and decent contributes a feeling of upliftment and gives the other party room to improve.

I know that I will attract others of like mind, even in surprising circumstances.

Continuing to express the best of decency and respect will permeate my life and the lives around me, so that we all are uplifted together.

I do not waste my time, thought or energy on anything which interferes with my ability to uplift myself and others through decency and respect.

Real and Unreal

I am so grateful I can tell the difference between what is real and what is unreal.

Everyone I now is so grateful they can tell the difference between what is real and what is unreal.

Everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, is so grateful they can tell the difference between what is real and what is unreal.

——————-

What is real is the peace I feel within.

What is unreal are the distractions from discovering and feeling this peace.

What is real are the connections I am making with people of like-mind.

What is unreal is the distraction from discovering the common interests we all have within our small and large communities.

What is real are the solutions I am discovering to make life better all around me.

What is unreal are the distractions that try to confuse and misdirect me.

What is real is my increasing confidence that others are finding the same desire for community.

What is unreal is the loud noise proclaiming the need for more and ore isolation.

What is real is the evidence of more people articulating their true deep desires.

We are beginning to unify and find community in our common goals.

This is the beginning of something very powerful, indeed.

Underlying Truth

I am so grateful for the underlying truth about life, regardless of the lies that surround us.

Everyone I know is so grateful for the truth about life, regardless of the lies that surround them.

Everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, is so grateful for the truth about life, regardless of the lies that surround them.

———————-
The many temptations of greed and the feeling of superiority that goes with it are reckless since they are not based on the underlying truth about life.

Life is for all of us.

We all breathe, learn, grow, develop a relationship with each other and with the earth.

Anything which can help us to do this in responsible ways, is part of the truth of life.

Having respect for the natural development of society and nature is what lets us live in harmony with each other and with the earth.

Substituting a sense of privilege for the processes which are a part of natural living for all of us is reckless.

The temporary excitement of winning over the system will be quite short-lived, especially when you are a guardian of the rights of others.

The underlying truth about life will automatically correct everyone involved, as the compassionate awareness that we all live on the same planet continues to gain momentum.

I am grateful “these truths” which are self-evident” will come into play as we all find our right and just place in this country and in this Universe.

Short-lived glory can be such a very painful lesson.

What a marvelous time to have such an example as we all increase in awareness and compassion.

Awareness About Honesty

I am grateful for increasing awareness about honesty.

Everyone I know is grateful for increasing awareness about honesty.

Everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, is grateful for increasing awareness about honesty.

———————

The use of dishonesty has become accepted practice in politics and in big business.

It is the desire to sway people to buy products and to follow politicians motivated by greed instead of integrity. 

When people are given the facts about products and politicians they can make intelligent decisions.

What is happening now, is that more people are taking responsibility for finding out the truth in more of these situations.

The power of honesty and awareness is increasing.

More people are participating in our government.

The apathy and malaise encouraged by so much dishonesty and defeat is being overcome.

Even though it is new and uncomfortable, more people are finding out the power of their awareness and action.

I am so grateful to find out that the truth, honesty and integrity which are so valuable on an individual level are beginning to find their power in government and economics.

The Right Direction

I can feel the right path within me.

Everyone I know can feel the right path within them.

Everyone I don’t even know all over the planet can feel the right path within them.

——————

We have a deep moral sense of what is right.

It is always easy to feel this because it gives a sense of peace when we go within.

We can always trust this moral compass and we strengthen its effect the more we pay attention to it.

Instead of being pulled off course by someone else’s designs, we can maintain our direction and create an attraction to it.

The more we fulfill our purpose and take steps along its path, the more fulfilled and happy we are.

We are able to serve the people who will most benefit from our work.

It is important to define our own path.

It is important to continue along its lines.

We will converge with others who can contribute to our well-being and whom we can help uplift.

The community we build when we follow our own true path feels completely different from following someone else’s lead.

When we are all following our true path, we naturally converge in ways which support each other.
