Everlasting Peace is found within the present moment. When the constant chattering of the mind ceases and we embrace the stillness from within we exist where peace is all there is. This peace transcends all understanding and it is the place of our origin; it is where we still exist.
Life is but a dream and we’ve all agreed to play a certain role. In the good words of Francis Bacon; “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances.” When we truly understand this, not just merely play around with the idea; the seriousness of this life dissolves away.
Another key aspect in embodying peace is to dispense with the notion that this life is all we have. The concept of death holds us bondage to the negativity in this world. This is why there is so much suffering; because we actually believe this life is all that there is, thus we try so hard in preserving life. Remove the fear of death and you’ll be able to make more informed choices and decisions for your life.
Do you honestly believe this is all there is? Do you designate your sense of identity to this single name you were given when you gifted this sphere with your life? Do you believe that you are the sum of your experiences in this single life? This life is but a fleeting moment in a vast ocean of infinite possibilities. You are so much more than that; we are all so much more then that. We are eternal beings and NOTHING will ever change this Truth. The fact that you are reading these words means you ALREADY KNOW this is the case and that you just needed to be re-minded of this obvious truth.
We being eternals beings have allowed ourselves to be deceived by many various agendas in order to better understand ourselves and this existence, but now it’s time for us to re-member who we are; to once again embody our true eternal selves. With this knowingness peace will be provided in ample supply.
Acceptance and patience is crucial in maintaining this state of peace and we’ve been heavily programmed to resist these at all costs. We’ve lost the knowledge and wisdom that is accompanied with patience and acceptance. We’re constantly trying to do and get something because we’re afraid to accept life on life’s terms.
We want exert control upon the external world; but we fail to realize that control is an illusion and there only exists acceptance. Accept life on life’s terms and you’ll see that the universe wants what you want, but we the individuals have disempowered ourselves by believing this duality we see in life is real. Everything we do, everything we think is an expression of likes or dislikes, good or bad, true or false.
I’ve come to the realization that I must not do what is good nor bad; but instead listen to my heart and trust in this present moment. I don’t need to form judgements in order to have or feel good. All is well in all of creation right here and right NOW. By being content with the present moment; we become more in tune with the higher aspects of ourselves and doors will open for new opportunities. When we fixate our attention upon the things we don’t desire; we manifest more of the things we don’t desire.
Where you set your attention is what you will experience; so if you focus on what you don’t desire; you will get that. If you focus on what you do desire; you will get that. That is basic law of manifestation in action; but the real creme of la crème is to see neither good nor bad; but instead see all as one and trust in your impulses.
For example the writing of this article wasn’t something I planned nor expected to undertake during this day; but then the impulse to write came to me and I recognized, accepted and trusted it.
Don’t place judgments; we don’t need to judge what is good or bad for us; because the universe is in a constant state of expansion; so naturally we can conclude from this fact that the universe or prime creator wants the same for us. Love is an expression of expansion and thus to be love is all we need to do. Judgments are a form of disassociation; when we create a judgment we attempt to separate ourselves from what we fear. Accept the present moment; don’t try to control it.
This separation is artificial and unsustainable; we cannot avoid everything we fear. In the words of Franklin D. Roosevelt; “The only thing to fear is fear itself.” With these words it becomes obvious that fear is an illusion ; it only exists within our mind; thus what we fear is not something external of us; but instead an idea within us. We must be bold enough to confront fear; allow fear a space in your awareness. When we do this we disempower the illusions control over us. Acceptance is the key; accept it and it will have no dominion over thee.
Peace is boundless, unparalleled and impulsive. It rises within the present moment; because there is only peace within the Eternal Now. When we deny patience; we steer away from peace, when we lack acceptance; we reap misery and when we avoid fear we become what we fear.
