Inner Peace Begins The Moment You Choose

Inner Peace

After we have searched our mind and observed its many thoughts and imaginings, we come to peace.
How long we enjoy this peace is another story.
All it takes is another thought or demand placed upon us due to our daily choices of responsibility.
We move from one state to another mentally and physically without thought to our state of mind.
Peace is only required when it is time to rest for the night. But the key to health is peace of mind.
When we have peace we make more positive choices with our lives.
The key is: move with a mind that is at peace or don’t move at all.

God promises us He will keep us in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him.
In all we do, do with God awareness.

Peace

Surrender Is Faith

Surrender Is Faith

When we know love matters more than anything,
and we know that nothing else REALLY matters,

we move into the state of surrender.
Surrender does not diminish our power, it enhances it.

Surrender is faith that the power of Love can accomplish
anything even when you cannot foresee the outcome.

Give up all bad qualities in you, banish the ego and develop the spirit of surrender.

by Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The greatness of a mans power is the measure of his surrender.
by William Booth

The word “surrender” is often interpreted as giving up, as weakness, as admitting defeat.

Although this is one way to use the word, we will use it in a different way.

Surrendering means letting go of your resistance to the total openness of who you are.

It means giving up the tension of the little vortex you believe yourself to be and realizing the deep power of the ocean you truly are.

It means to open with no boundaries, emotional or physical, so you ease wide beyond any limiting sense of self you might have.

Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love.
We melt into another world, a realm of power within us.
The world changes when we change.
The world softens when we soften.

When what you feel on the inside surpasses what you see on the outside miracles will happen.
When you admire something in someone you are seeing a reflection of yourself.

Life Is In God’s Hands

LIFE IS IN GOD’S HANDS

            It was back in February I learned one of “The Biggest Loser” trainee of age 51 was hit with a heart-attack.
I still can’t seem to get it off my mind.  He was so filled with strength and vitality and a great motivator.
When he shared his story with millions of television viewers, I saw his shock and pain.

            The thing that stayed with me the most is the fact that he was at an event enjoying him and just dropped.
There happened to be two doctors attending the event and was able to do CPR on him and administer a defibrillator to shock his heart to beat again.
If these two doctors were not there, Bob Harper would not be alive to tell his story.

            What are the chances two doctors are present at the same event he was attending?  They were angels certain he would live.
This tells me, God has the due date for our departure no matter what we do or not do.  Bob suffered from the moment of birth from genes that came with his life.
Thank God he took good care of himself; the impact could have been much worse and still allowing him to be alive.

            He learned so much from this experience, know your body, and know your family history and I am sure he also learned the power of God.

            Read his story let it remind you of the precious value of life.  Live, love, and laugh often and do not forget to thank God you are still here.

Money Can Make A Difference Dealing With Stress

Money Can Make A Difference Dealing With Stress

Please stop thinking money is something bad or something that needs to be avoided
or that you are less spiritual if you have money.

Money gives you choices and opens opportunities that you would not otherwise have.
You can use money to help others in ways you would not be able to if you didn’t have money.

Money is just energy.
Money is not good.
Money is not bad.
Money is a personality magnifier.
Money will take a person’s personality and broadcast it to the world.
A person who truly cares about others will be shown to be even more caring.
A greedy, self-absorbed individual will become worse.
Money gives you control over your life.

Feel good about money and you will find it available to fix many problems in your life.

Money removes barriers in your life.

Money is not the key to happiness, but it sure does help.

I Am Loved and Accepted Exactly As I Am

okI Am Loved and Accepted Exactly As I Am

You must realize that you are now only a heap of conventions, habits, what society has made of you.
Once all these have left you, you realize that they were defenses and aggressions accumulated solely to maintain the ego.
by Jean Klein

You were never greater than you are right now, nor will you ever be.
Your worth is already complete and never changes, only your relationship to it evolves.
by Michael Tamura

To live a life you were not meant, is to create confusion within yourself.
This confusion you are feeling will only manifest itself negatively into your physical world.
You are here for a reason. You are here to provide a gift to this world.
Until you present your true self to the world. Your present to the world will go unopened.

When your mind starts telling you what you have to do to make everything okay, don’t buy into what it’s telling you.
The truth is, everything will be okay as soon as you are okay with everything. And that’s the only time everything will be okay.

Renewing Of The Mind

 

Renewing Of The Mind

All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed.
The first step in the”renewing of the mind” is desire.
You must want to be different (and intend to be) before you can begin to change yourself.
Then you must make your future dream a present fact.
You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled.
By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person
you want to be and assume that you are already that person.
If this assumption is persisted n until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable.

Don’t Take Anything Personally

Don’t Take Anything Personally

Nothing others do is because of you.
What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.
When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
by Miguel Ruiz

All blame is a waste of time.
No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.
The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration.
You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.
by Wayne Dyer

According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment,
just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness.
The first symptom is that you stop worrying.
Things don’t bother you anymore.
You become light-hearted and full of joy.
The second symptom is that you encounter more and
more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities.
And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous.
