Peace in the Light

I have such a deep sense of peace as I watch the different kinds of light around me.

Leaves change color as they face the light and rustle with the breeze.

There are dramatic changes in the light as a rainstorm builds up and darkens the sky.

Then the light emerging through the clouds after it is gentle and diffused.

Colors are stronger, the contrast greater in this light.

The light above the trees when mist is rising gives a sense of calm and mystery.

The rosy dawn light becomes sharper and more distinct as the sun rises higher in the sky.

I watch the shadow line of the trees as it moves across the meadow and then all the way up the hill on its eastern edge.

All these types of light illustrate to me the presence of different states of thought at different times of day.

It is not just a mood.

It is the presence of light in all kinds of ways, inspiration, guidance, a sudden insight, a slow dawning, a trickle, a shutting down and then revelation.

And then, even at night, the starlight and the light of the moon.

Always, in some way, light.

I Walked Into Someone Else's Dream

And then I walked out.

While I was caught there for a while, I was upset.

I tried to find solutions, but none of them worked.

It was confusing because my motive was to help and uplift.

But then, I finally realized because I was in someone else’s dream, the solutions I was attempting to find were not relevant.

When I stepped out and back into my own life, my life and happiness resumed.

I am able to to share my happiness no matter what is happening in anyone else’s life or their dream.

Peace and Newness

The newness of peace is wearing off and it has become a familiar arrival point.

After learning how to find peace within, I now can return to it more and more readily.

My new challenge is to see how quickly I can return to peace if I find myself disturbed in some way.

Even the challenge causes me to pause and remove myself somewhat as I look for my route back to peace.

I am grateful to discover new dimensions to peace.

I did not know peace offered such a huge kingdom.

I am so very grateful for the opportunities to expand it in my life.

Agitation is Not Required

Even though the resources I was given helped me make progress, I rarely moved from a sense of peace.

I have recently discovered that in order to move forward, agitation is not required.

I can move forward from inspiration and peace.

I can receive inspiration when I go to the quiet place “within”.

I can bring myself back into a peaceful sense more and more rapidly.

When I feel disturbed or agitated, I now know those are habits, not choices.

I am choosing what I want when I choose peace.

I am building new habits.

It gives a remarkable sense of happiness to be able to do this.

Transcend Criticism

There is a place of peace that transcends criticism.

When I found there was nothing I could do to get rid of it, I was forced to simply transcend it.

I have discovered the deep “within” of my identity.

Now, when faced with the destructive habit of criticism, I go there.

I have learned to trust the self that I find there.

So I love here.

Love her, lover here, lover here.

I let the love I now have for myself overflow.

I feel it so strongly and so deeply.

And then, I just shine.

And that is how I go beyond replacing criticism.

I just shine.

I transcend it.

Peaceful in Transcendence

I am discovering that we do not have to leave the world in order to transcend our problems.

Discovering of the inward view leads to a different life right where we are.

Mine is a combination of having left one location for a new one with having left an old view of myself for a new one as well.

I am finding my place in beautiful physical surroundings and I am finding my professional expression in creative work that I love.

The combination is breath-taking, moving forward in so many dimensions at once.

I have transcended the place that I live and the way that I work simultaneously.

One compliments the other.

Be Led by Trust

You can trust the direction you are being led when you go “within”.

Everything that you need will be provided form the same Source.

When you are dealing with your life’s purpose and mission, all the little things necessary to keep you comfortable as well as the things necessary to further your mission will all be provided.

Everything is working together toward the same end.

You are the one who perceives what you are here for.

You are the one who listens and takes action when all is ready.

You are the one who is at the center of your identity.

Only you can tell when there is a match between who you are and what you are doing.

You will be uncomfortable until you find that match.

You may live your whole life without it, but it will be uncomfortable for you.

On the soul level, you know who you are and you will not rest until you establish it in every facet of your life.

Trust that fact and be led by it.

The stabilizing factor is the peace within.

With this peace, I always have what I need.

I am centered in giving.

I am centered in my view that everyone is precious.

I am centered in my view of spiritual identity.

I am convinced that the work is discovering a different way to peace.

It is from within.

It is unlimited.

Let’s all invest ourselves with this kind of peace, invest ourselves in peace-giving.

There are always those who feel it.

It adds to their day.

When we take a little of the tension out of our day, it conveys itself to others.

It stabilizes us and adds to the stability of those within range of our thought.

It dilutes the aggressive atmosphere of the media when we find ourselves getting caught up in it.

Being unmoved, but moving in the right direction requires stability.

The stability starts within.

It’s my way of adding to the peace.
