Peace comes from within
That’s Right! I am responsible for my own joy
It is said that life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we respond to it. The only thing over which we have any control is our own state of consciousness in the present moment. There will always be others who are still in the early processes of awakening. They often bring heightened drama and distraction to their interactions and provide others with the wonderful opportunity to practice balance in the face of dysfunction.
When we remember that all of us walk the same journey, it becomes easier to maintain one’s own sense of inner peace while cultivating the art of compassion and acceptance. You are responsible only for your own state of consciousness. Blame and judgment give away all your power to the subject of your distress. When you notice that someone has triggered angst in your experience, go within, consciously utilize the tools you have perfected and bring yourself back into a state of inner peace.
Know that there will come a time when you are easily able to remain consistently loving and balanced, no matter what the circumstance. In the meantime, consider those who challenge you as your healing angels who provide the opportunity for you to cultivate a higher state of consciousness.
Today my intention is to honor everyone and everything as my teacher.
