Peace In Ourselves – Peace In The World

ara-peace-in-oneself

For the longest time, the last few weeks in particular, I have been sitting back ‘observing’.  I have been saddened and outraged at times but am now settling into a sense of peace and knowing.  Not a lofty ‘knowing’.  More like a ‘remembering’.  I remember that my soul is here to evolve—which means I will grow and change—either kicking or screaming or with grace; that my heart, even though broken at times, will always mend—if I truly want to heal it; that words have the power to uplift or tear down—bullying others, minimizing others, blaming others does nothing to effect the change one prefers; that being so ‘right’ as to insist others believe as we do is folly; and that our true power is within us, not external and definitely not predicated on who does what—or doesn’t, who says what—or doesn’t. I remind myself that inasmuch as we have believed that  embracing our differences is peaceful and admirable it still showcases ‘differences’.  We are all the same. We are here pretending to be something different to learn, grow and above all to learn to love each other. We bump along in the illusion as empty spaces with no colour, no religion, no sexual orientation. We just are. We are all powerful beyond measure and we all have the capacity to love and respect one another.  I remind myself that pushing against what we do not want only gives us more to push against when in essence if we simply focused on what we prefer we can collectively forge new trails and be the powerful change agents we came here to be.  Lastly, I remember Wayne Dyer’s wise words that when you squeeze an orange, you get orange juice.  What comes out of someone during challenging times is what has been in them all along.  We are all being called to heal the fear that is in us being expressed externally as venom, as bullying, as self-righteousness and all else that does not serve ourselves or anyone else.  When we do we will all be postured to move into a peace as yet unrevealed. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher
