You can be at peace now by being at peace in the present moment.
“It is only in our thoughts that ideas, beliefs, and problems become solid, dark and unyielding. Reality itself is moveable, light, ever-changing. In our minds we seem trapped, in reality we are utterly free.”
Detachment is a world away from apathy. While apathy says “I don’t care” within a cloak of darkness and despair, detachment allows one to be fully engaged in life without fear or disappointment. This is the secret of happiness and it can only be found within the present moment.
Allow the Divine to express itself through you. In the Now we can participate in life’s dance by choosing to be in harmony with what is. In our free will universe there is always a choice. In the midst of anger or disruption, we might ask ourselves, “Why am I choosing to be angry when I could easily choose to be joyful?” The answer is simple – we’ve allowed the stories of the ego to have enough energy to temporarily take over our state of consciousness. The spiritual seeker may be distressed to realize they’ve dropped to a lower state of consciousness; however, the realization that you’re unconscious actually means that you are awakening.
You are far greater than your thoughts and your emotions. Observe them, detach, accept, dance, share, step into joy, repeat.
Today my intention is to release patterns that no longer serve me.
