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.

The Help You Receive

I am grateful to discover the help I receive when I move ahead.

Everyone I know is grateful for the help they receive when they move ahead.

Everyone I don’t even know all over the planet, is grateful for the help they receive when they move ahead.

—————-

Sometimes it is hard to trust the ideas which come to us, even when we really love them.

We have been taught to value that which is outside of ourselves and to look to the opinion of others.

But our true reason for being is to listen within and to follow the direction that comes solely to us.

This is how we align ourselves with our true value.

This is how we fulfill our value to society and civilization.

We are meant to fulfill an individual place.

So, when we are brave and take the courage to move ahead on the ideas which make us the most happy, we receive the help we need.

It comes to us as we move into alignment with both head and heart.

It dos not have to make sense to anyone else.

The ideas which have a place in our heart, have a place in our life.

My Peace and Truth

I am grateful to discover the truth in my life.

Everyone I know is grateful to discover the truth in their life.

Everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, is grateful to discover the truth in their life.

——————-

Sometimes there can be many confusing issues in our life.

We find ourselves influenced by the past, the present and the future.

But there is only one truth actually going on.

When we find our way into the deep peace within, we can hear that truth.

And then we know what action to take, and when.

Even the mental action of jumping to a conclusion needs to wait for the deep peace within to inform it.

Otherwise, it is just a diluted concentration of the outward action we may be pushed to take.

The truth in my life makes be feel calm and balanced.

It makes me feel restful and peaceful.

It makes me feel happy and satisfied that all are within the range of divine direction.

As I find my peace and my truth, I know I am adding to the world’s sense of peace and truth.

Choosing Peace

When there is turmoil, I choose peace.

When there is turmoil, everyone I know chooses peace.

When there is turmoil, everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, chooses peace.

———————

I am getting a lot of practice as I remind myself to choose peace.

I remind myself that I would not invite turmoil into my house, so I do not have to accept it into my mind either.

I notice and observe what is going on in the news.

Then I remind myself of our higher nature, and choose to interact with people that way.

Some criminals reform their lives despite the bad surroundings they grew up in.

Sometimes prominent people known for one view, upon reflection, change to its opposite.

A devastating experience may cause an ordinary person to change their life-view.

We are seeing a lot of selfishness and confusion all at once by prominent people on a national and international scale.

But all that is changeable.

I will add to the peace, by choosing it, because it is an expression of my higher nature.

That is something everyone can do.

Recognition, Validation and Building

I validate myself with the recognition of what I am building.

Everyone I know validates themselves with the recognition of what they are building.

Everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, validates themselves with the recognition of what they are building.

—————-

When we listen within, we are led to discover our deepest identity.

As we come to know who we are, we begin to recognize our worth.

We learn to validate ourselves with the comforting thought that we have an individual and valued identity.

Then, we learn to build on that identity, and from it.

What we learn to build is trust in ourselves and in our ideas.

The more we love them, the more we are led to take the steps to develop the ideas.

One idea will especially draw our attention.

We learn to follow it.

Once we give it strength with our validated identity, it will emerge.

As we build with confidence, our idea will attract those of like-mind.

We build marvelous and wonderful and harmonious communities based on the goodness and value which comes from recognizing who are, and then, taking action.

Calm, Beautiful Ideas

Through calmness, I feel beautiful ideas emerge.

Through calmness, everyone I know feels beautiful ideas emerge.

Through calmness, everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, feels beautiful ideas emerge.

——————-

There is room for many different and wonderful ideas to emerge.

In an atmosphere of calm, ideas can be nurtured.

Even in the midst of crisis, which we see manufactured all around us, we can find our area of peace and calm by going within.

As we create the calm space for the idea to emerge, we can take action, a step at a time.

By nurturing the idea and taking the steps, we can see it take place and add to calm around us.

Buy doing this repeatedly and consistently we can change the mental and emotional atmosphere.

By doing this repeatedly and consistently, we can help a different culture emerge.
