How do you settle the chaos within?
Silence the chatter
Still the judgment
And walk forward in peace and joy?
Dear One, your journey upon this physical plane seems a constant search for peace within, in a world where chaos and disruption are ever-present. How can you find that place of peace and silence as your mind continues to engage and process all that is occurring around you?
The peace that you crave lies within your heart and not within your mind. The key is to disengage from those constant thoughts moving through your mind. How is that possible? There are many ways in which to silence the chatter. Many choose meditation while others exercise or lose themselves in a creative task. Others might seek out the peaceful environment provided by Mother Nature.
Any and all of these activities will help you find calm from the storm of thoughts bombarding you throughout your day. But these are just the first part of the journey towards the peace that you seek. For many of you have unresolved issues which require reflection. Much of the turmoil you feel is due to a way of thinking which may need further study.
Place your hand upon your heart area and breathe, quietly and deeply, allowing the stress to release from deep within where you hold it so tightly. Then begin to reflect upon the impetus for the stress that you feel. Is it really just a recent event or interaction or is it linked to a long-held desire unmet?
Dear One, what is the fear which lies behind the stress you are feeling at this moment? Do not move away from this fear but embrace it and allow it to give you the answers required to move forward with grace. For your thoughts, your actions, are driven by one of two things, either fear or love. There is nothing else.
There are many names for these feelings that you have; jealousy, judgment, competition, anger and so on. But the root cause of these feelings is fear and only fear. The times of quiet which you find are only the beginning of the journey to allow that peace within to grow and flourish for you daily.
Keep in mind that this life of yours is lived in an illusion, created for and by you so that the lessons you chose to learn can be facilitated in the best way possible. Remember that all who cross your path are your teachers. Many of them invited by you in another time to be present on this plane to help you learn those lessons. These contracts were made in love, to be carried out in a physical existence for your personal growth.
However, due to free will, many plans go awry, perhaps with more harshness than was originally discussed. For this human existence carries its own sweet charm that can distract you from your purpose for being here. Lessons are still learned, despite these distractions, moving you forward upon your personal journey of self-discovery.
Dear One, this physical life is one of impermanence. This very moment in time with all that is before you may not be the same in the next breath that you take. This provides opportunity to change in every moment of time, how you feel, what you think, and in what action you might take in re-action or response.
But it also means that every moment is sacred, never to offer the same opportunity again. Can you live each moment as if it were the last, for indeed, in a fashion it truly is the last? Can you begin to turn around your way of thinking and replace it with the feeling of love emanating from your heart? For your true essence, your true nature, resides in your heart connected in love to the Source of all creation.
You have come this far and survived.
Continue to move forward in grace,
Viewing your world through the lens of love
And not fear.
For love is who you are
And what comforts you the most.
For like attracts like.
Live in love
Forgive in love.
And remember the connection you have
With all of creation.
Dear One With All of Thee.
