Be Peace… it’s easier said than done, I know. But with peace comes better health on all levels. When something petty comes up, it’s easy to lose that inner peace. We’ve all been there at one point or another. You’re almost late to work and all of the traffic lights seem to be red. You’re about to be next in line and realize you’ve forgotten your wallet… A wide array of challenges come along (usually during the most expected times) in people’s lives. That does not mean you cannot live in peace. So the next time something undesirable comes up, take a deep breath (preferably a few), visualize something pleasant like a lotus flower being illuminated by the summer solstice sunlight, turn to gratitude… rather than the attitude of pessimism, doubt, self-pity. Now, what about those bigger life issues? With poor health, losing a loved one, etc… Surely one cannot feel peaceful during such times and that’s perfectly fine! Let out the pain rather than bottling it up. It will take time, but your inner peace is there waiting because you’ve been Peace (& Love) all along. And it only becomes stronger with each hardship. You see, as much as we’d rather not deal with anything negative in our lives, it can be a teacher if we let it.
