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

Love Lives On…As do relationships

ara spirit mom

For those whose mother is no longer with us in the physical please know that nothing can undo, dissolve or lay to rest a mother’s love.  It is a heartbeat that marches to the beat of eternity.  Your heart carries her, remembers her and loves her.  She reciprocates each step of the way.  She is not gone.  She is merely transformed allowing for a new relationship to be cultivated with you. Celebrate her and honour her.  She is right beside you…even still. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium and Spiritual Teacher

Respect

respect1

I have been pondering the concept of respect.  I hear time and time again how one will respect another only if the respect is reciprocated.  On a personal level when words are uttered such as I understand unconditional love is not present.

We seem to be so consumed by the way people respond or react to us.  We forget that we are all ‘life unfolding’ at all times.  Each of us finding our way and experiencing trials and triumphs as we go. Each of us has the free will to think, believe and choose whatever we want. We are not here to all agree.  What one person has come here to grow and evolve through cannot be known nor understood.  Honour the journey they are on as when you do you honour your own.  Remember we are all a reflection of one another. What we notice in one we carry ourselves. It is in this way we are reminded of the inner healing that requires our attention.  It is all a perfect gift if we choose to see it that way.

Honour life in all forms no matter what the expression.  Refuse to judge.  Refuse to defend.  Just notice, be aware, choose what you wish to engage with or simply move along. Always, in love.
