Wisdom for Peace in our lives

I received this article last week from Mary Lynn Ziemer “Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun” and I had to share it with you. Many times we get caught up in worry, which doesn’t do anyone any good. We need to remeber to have or get some peace in our lives. 

How do you find peace within, so that you can live a life of joy?  

Begin by filling your heart with love for yourself…see the loving truth about you. Learn to live in the present moment…it is all that truly exists.  Stop feeling guilt over the past.  Know that you did the best you could, from where you were with what you had, and see yourself as the most magnificent person ever!

 Then, fill your heart with love for everyone else and everything around you! They are worthy of your love exactly as they are.  Have no judgement, feel no need to compare, and stop analyzing everything. 

Just let it all go by feeling great love and gratitude for what you already have, and focus on making today fun! Be the light-hearted child within you…and peace and serenity will be yours!

Please read this more than once. I re-read this three times just to make sure it sunk in.  We need to try and incorporate these ideas into our lives. Our society can cause us to be so busy and stressed out that we need to remember we are made from the great creator and have immense value.  Let’s not compare ourselves to others and what they have or appear to have.  After all, it is Your Life.

Great HERO Article

I read a great article by Jennifer Louden on en*theos today and I wanted to share it with you. We all have a HERO within us.

Self-Trust Super S/Hero Tip  |  by Jennifer Louden

Self-trust is everyone’s most needed s/hero super power.

You’ve gotta have self-trust – the ability to go within and know what you feel is the best choice – before you ask anyone else.

Selftrust grows from believing (even if you must remind yourself seventeen times an hour) that you can handle what life dishes up—scalding hot, icy cold, rather stale or so sublime, you must squeeze your eyes shut as you savor it.

Today, entertain the idea that the poet Rilke was on to something when he declared, “The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.”

The word defeated may set your teeth on edge. True, it’s bit dark, yet it’s also a bold declaration: “I am a learner. I learn from what life hands me.”

Even though you may bow in frustration sometimes and other times, need to throw yourself a big ole’ pity party, you know that the difficult moments of life – the daily ones and the big ones – are not out to get you but opportunities to go within and learn who you are and what you believe – and want.

Today’s S/hero Action: The next time you find yourself saying, “I can’t handle this” or “I don’t know what to do,” exhale fully. Really exhale. Then, as you inhale, remind yourself you have handled everything that life has brought to you. Not perfectly, not always admirably, but you are still here, aren’t you?  Thus you handled it.

Then ask, “If I believed I could handle this and I did know what I wanted to do, what would I choose right now?”

Are you learning from life? What are you telling yourself?  I know I keep telling myself, “I can handle it” and then I smile and share my smile.
