Peace of Mind is an internal matter

“Peace of Mind is clearly an internal matter.

It must begin with your own thoughts and then

extend outward.  It is from your peace of Mind

that a peaceful perception “of the world arises

A Course In Miracles Lesson 34.  I could see Peace Instead of this.

W. 34 P. 1.2 – 4

We think peace comes from anywhere but our own Holy Mind.  We seek

peace in places of solitude, a quiet path through the woods or perhaps

having tea with a friend.  But it is our thoughts that either create peace or

chaos.  We may have a quick judgmental thought and then realize it does

not bring peace.  When that happens just notice it and forgive.  Don’t go

to guilt.  The Course says the “ego always speaks first” and it does!  So

What?!  Get back to into the peace of the Right Mind and tell yourself

“I could see peace in this situation instead of what I now see in it” and

peace will return.

It may be hard to believe that peace comes from within yourself but

watch your thoughts and you will be surprised and realize that

YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF WHAT YOU THINK!  IT IS UP TO YOU!

Let Love Surround You Today

You are loved!

You may not feel loved right now but only because you need to allow it in.

Let it surround you and hold you firmly. Let it rock you gently. Feel it.

Take a breath and gently let your body feel love rocking it.

Undoing the blocks to love may make you weep. Let the tears come.

Let them run down your cheeks and heal your heart.

You are remembering the sweetness of love. It is always there.

Allow it. You are loved. YES. Love is YOU because it resides within YOU.

You have blocked it because our society does not focus on it. Even laughs at it.

That does not matter. In the quiet place of your mind you can acknowledge

love and let society go. It is not important. Not as important as love.

You can recall LOVE at any time, any place, any where, no matter what chaos is

going on around you. Go to LOVE. Be safe. Love is safe.

You are not the ego. When you listen to the ego you do not feel love.

The ego does not want you to know WHO or WHAT you are.

The ego is not YOU. Your powerful mind can choose either the ego or the Love within.

It is a choice. See it as YOUR choice.

You are Loved. It does not matter if someone else loves you are not.

You are still Loved. God is the love within.
