Inward Peace By DL Banks
When you connect to the silence within you, that is when you can make sense of the disturbance going on around you.
The thing about being catapulted into a whole new life–or at least, shoved up so hard against someone else’s life that you might as well have your face pressed against their window–is that it forces you to rethink your idea of who you are. Or how you might seem to other people. Don’t live to be judged for what you haven’t done. Live to be judged for what you have done. The tragedy is that what you disapprove of in others is the very thing you disapprove of in yourself. In the autumn of your years don’t make it so that what you look back on is regret. Live your life now so that whatever you do gives some sunshine before you head into the winter of your life.
You are one thing only. You are a Divine Being. An all-powerful Creator. You are a Deity in jeans and a t-shirt, and within you dwells the infinite wisdom of the ages and the sacred creative force of All that is, will be and ever was. Grief helps you come to grips with the loss of a loved one. Guilt helps you make better moral decisions or bring you to apologize for a wrongdoing. In proper doses, these types of negative emotions are necessary and healthy. Like everything in life, it is not what happens to you but how you respond to it that counts.
The law of sacrifice postulates that we need to give in order to receive … Cosmic Ordering says, receive before you give. Pessimists never go on a voyage of discovery, equally so they never leave the shoreline in search of new horizons. When we have reached the depths of despair, only then can we look up and see the light of hope. The thrust of continuous action is the firewood which fuels motivation. Who can know when his world is going to change? Who can tell before it happens, that every prior experience, all the years, were a preparation for . . . greatness.
The real winners I’ve met in life weren’t necessarily skilled or perfect. They just had the tenacity to never, ever give up. Life is like a gym. When you cheat gym exercise you are cheating your self. its your loss. When you do them properly even without one looking at you. Its your own benefit and gain. We can all be giants in moments of peace and harmony, but to stay a giant in adversity is the true test of one’s mettle.
If someone wants to be in your world then they will be anything you want them to in it. If all your focused thoughts followed your inner feelings, your life would be abundant and joyful beyond all imagining. Remove whatever you no longer need in your life, to make room for what you do need in your life. Your hopes and dreams are like a giant helium balloon, tugging on your hand to take you above the clouds, to that quiet place of peace and contentment. All you have to do is stop resisting, to let go – and allow your hopes and dreams to take you there. With a burning ambition, sustained focus, and daily action – there simply are no limits to what you will achieve. For aspirants upon the spiritual path, each manifestation provides clues as to what needs to be released or cleared in order to continue to ascend.
However, what I have come to understand from my life’s journey is that I am always in the right place at the right time. In fact, there is no other place I could possibly be. Everything is energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed or mutated from one form to another. Creating abundance must start from within ourselves. The higher the vibration, the more positive the events or people you attract and likewise. Just as you first eat with your eyes, you also first desire things with your subconscious mind! No matter what you say to someone else, you always hear it first. When something or someone moves you, truly moves you, a part of you wakes affected and afflicted by senses you had never previously experienced. A part of you that you never understood, or perhaps never even knew, suddenly sparks into existence.
What we are today doesn’t show what we were yesterday. After all, the only thing unchangeable about this world is the constant change. Perhaps you have an appetite to help others, to give of yourself so that others can have a better life … and in so doing you yourself become successful. Yes believe it or not all self-made millionaires have had to get their hands dirty at some point in their rags to riches story. The gift of knowledge is empowering, but the gift of wisdom is life-changing. With sticky thinking you can become unstuck
