Underlying Peace

Feel the deep underlying peace of the day.

The rhythm of the universe unfolds as the light distributes itself around the planet.

The oceans carry the immense power of their currents.

Windstreams above the earth create gigantic energies.

We, too, infuse the earth with our presence.

What energies are we stewarding?

Can we direct them toward good for everyone?

The solutions are here, in the rhythm of the Universe as it passes around and through us.

Only our attitudes direct it.

Shall we see beyond the old patterns and embrace infinity for all?

Then mental energies will turn in that direction and seek and find solutions.

Shall we treat everyone as deserving and valued?

Then resources will appear in ways to serve universally.

Shall we let go of our own individual viewpoints and experiences in order to accommodate an unlimited way?

Then, we shall be a part of the underlying and peace and provision for all.

Balance of Good

I will release my positive view in the face of all the disturbances going on around us.

My positive view has a place, despite the chaos.

My positive view is based on the fact that my choices have brought me to where I am now.

I can continue to make good choices in every circumstance.

I can choose to fill my thought with uplifting and inspiring thoughts.

I can expect good solutions to be found by caring people.

I can expect the imbalances to be addressed and balance restored through appropriate and committed action, of which I am a part.

I trust that order will be found despite chaos, and that our united action is the way that order will be found.

There are principles that bind us, practices which uphold us, and generosity of spirit despite all.

I will put my efforts into understanding and patience and universal good.

Policy which supports the efforts of all to provide for themselves provides stability and a sense of balance.

This is well known by those forces which are enacting destabilization.

Our awareness and unified action to create a better policy through elections will place our balance on a better foundation.

Waking to Peace

I awake to a peaceful morning.

Around me are sounds and sights of Nature.

I feel the peace and balance of the day.

I know that I can bring myself back to this feeling of peace whenever I need to.

I have a way of observing, but not engaging, in the disturbances around me.

I can take action without succumbing to despair.

Peace is energizing me and permeating all that is disruptive.

Peace always wins.

Peace is what underlies the upheavals and cycles of the earth, so that all are provided for.

Peace, itself, is the substance of action which is taken to comfort and uplift.

In the midst of each of us, there is a center of peace.

It provides an infinite flow of comfort and trust.

We are led to follow it and to establish our own peace wherever we go.

Peace establishes itself in our minds and hearts and expresses Itself as us.

The peace that none can take away is a permanent part of us.

When we live from the peace that is within us, we participate in a different kind of community.

We are part of the power of peace which spreads Itself everywhere and makes Itself known to willing hearts.

I wake to peace each moment that I feel Its Presence within me.

Bear Witness to a Higher Course

Feel the power of your ideals.

There is a reason they give you the feeling that they do.

Your life is bound up in the expression of your ideals.

When you do not live up to them, you feel discomfort.

They are what keep you on your higher course.

It is always possible to aim higher, and with that you feel the influx of happiness, energy and other resources.

The shape of your expression is determined by what you love to do.

Committing yourself to this action will bring more of it into your life.

Live only with what you really need.

Do not be distracted by too many possessions or the need for them.

Keep only what contributes to your higher course.

Let all other things fall away.

You will be drawn to people of like-mind and they will be drawn to you.

You will be supported by those who appreciate what you do.

You will continually empower yourself to higher and more beautiful and effective action.

You will step from one higher place to the next as your expression leads you.

Never compromise; it will only bring you down.

Never follow the suggestions of others; you are not living from their viewpoint.

You are always receiving your own direction, so never break your trust.

Listen clearly and take action and you will bear witness to your higher course.

Be Sure of Your Direction

Be sure of your direction and then proceed peacefully and with confidence.

There is no rush to release something that is not fully developed.

Your ideas are coming to you from a unique perspective and you are the only one who can refine and complete them.

Trust your ability to follow through on your precious and important ideas.

The outside reward has nothing to offer you if you develop anything less than your sincerity and integrity.

You have an unlimited supply of integrity and you can develop your worth best by expressing your original ideas.

What you need will naturally be attracted to you and you will find yourself in the best place to share your ideas.

You are able to uplift your community by being true to your ideal.

Continue to take each step with confidence and assurance.

You have time to see your purpose fulfilled.

You can have complete fruition from investing yourself in your ideas.

You can trust yourself and receive the reward for your insight and persistence.

The Cost of Greed

Although many of us grew up with the legend of King Midas, we are seeing another story of greed enacted in our own day.

At the height of King Midas’ greed, his touch turned everything to gold, including his furniture, food and drink, and finally, his daughter.

The loss of his daughter caused the king grief and he asked for his “golden touch” to be taken away so his daughter and kingdom were restored.

Today, we are seeing the price of greed being paid through the experiences of having the government run by an oligarchy.

A small number of Americans, those voted to represent all the people, have been corrupted by their own greed in response to the greed of the oligarchs.

Services and privileges that we, as Americans, took for granted, are being taken away in order to feed the void that greed creates in those who practice it.

The good result of this is the great awakening of more and more American people.

In many cases, legislators have resigned, rather than face the outrage and disgust of the people they were elected to represent.

The level of greed being practiced in the highest public offices is unprecedented and goes against the safeguards of The Constitution of the United States.

The price of pretending to be above the law has yet to be measured.

We know that significant indictments and convictions have been made as investigations progress.

We know that public trust has been betrayed multiple times.

We do not yet know what the total price in dollars is, although it is high.

We do not know what the price is yet, in undermining our democracy.

The price of ignorance is becoming more and more visible, but many choose to keep their ignorance.

My hope is that we will effectively reeducate those who have willingly stayed in the dark, and we will be brutal with those who have duped them.

Overflowing Peace

The more I devote myself to what I love, I feel an overflowing peace.

Doing what is important to me, adds to my peace of mind.

Learning sustainability skills helps keep me in tune with my relationship to the planet.

It helps elevate my ability to live in harmony with the environment.

Expressing our individuality adds to the peace.

We have a universal purpose which harmoniously fits into the scheme of overflowing peace.

Overflowing peace happens when everything is working together.

Our goal in establishing our own peace is to contribute to this goal.

Being self-sustaining in communities honors our earth and our place on it.

As we steward our resources responsibly, it adds to the peace.

We can add to the peace by filling ourselves with peace until it overflows.
