Don’t wait for life to fall into place before you choose to feel peaceful, balanced and fulfilled.
The mind will have you believe that certain goals must be obtained, challenging situations overcome or those around you must be joyful before you can relax into a life that is peaceful and contented. As awakening students of love, we understand that our challenges prompt us to turn inward in order to discover the peacefulness that is already within us.
Be grateful for the moments of chaos that disrupt your life situation. They are meant to help you to cultivate the Art of Presence. When you can walk in the midst of turmoil yet remain calm and aware of your state of consciousness, you become a powerful co-creator within your own experience.
Nothing is more important than your state of mind in this moment. Observe what is, breathe, accept and act (when necessary) from a place of inner stillness. Rather than being reactive or feeling lost in a storm of upheaval, you’ll choose mindful responses that transform moments of intensity into what they are meant to be – vehicles of awakening.
