A thought for today on this holiday Monday…..
What I have learned so far:
There is no way to Peace.
Peace is the Way.
I have to BE peace, to live in peace.
I TRY to be this every day.
“Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control. We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family, or friends. We can assist them, pray for them, and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes.” – Jack Kornfield
Deepak Chopra (my awesome guru) has evolved into being my Guided Meditation of choice on a daily basis now. I’ve have just completed the series of his 21 day Meditation Challenge and I have downloaded more to work on this morning. I’m so excited! For me, I love them as they are short (about 15 to 20 minutes), they are soft-spoken, with lovely music, and they are deeply heart-warming AND I actually can feel the difference with my mind and my body and my spirit after working with them. They are perfect for beginners (they resonate very easily in our minds) and every other stage too, for that matter.
With love and gratefulness, to have you all in my life (and a whole bunch of peace too)
