Peace Love And Good Will
It’s the time of year when we wish peace, love, and good will toward others every single day for about three weeks. How we carry through on these good wishes the rest of the year depends upon how much knowledge of them lives within us. We know what love is for the most part. We have all experienced it in some form. It is easy enough to wish people that have never harmed you heaps of good will.
Peace is complicated.
Peace is the acceptance of conflict.
I know. Conflict is not on the list of definitions when we attempt to describe peace. It is not on the list but conflict is very much a part of peace. In order to accept peace today we must first let go of yesterday’s strife and our need to control tomorrow. How many of us can do this with ease? Most of us are conflicted when it comes to accepting what is. It is helpful to remember that whatever happens is exactly what was supposed to happen. We cannot control what we do not possess.
Our country is going through an extended period of turmoil. Anyone that is sensitive and empathic is having a hard time dealing right now. Quite frankly, it is breaking my heart. I feel sad, mad, and over it all at the same time. It’s like finding out that the person you love is not only a serial killer but they have been cheating on you with your best friend since day one. It’s a lot to process. If I didn’t have a dark wicked sense of humor I would not be able to enjoy a moments peace.
Life owns us. We do not own Life.
The sooner you let Life have you. Surrender to it completely. The more Peace you will hold.
The behavior of others cannot destroy your peace once you surrender.
The ego will rarely accept the truth without a fight. More conflict. Be prepared.
We need to learn to how know Grace when we see it. It often comes in the form of protection.
Knowing you are protected. Having faith that you will always be protected will give you enough peace to get through it all one day at a time. Share that peace with others. One. Day. At. A. Time.
Sending Love, Light & Oceans of Bliss …
