The 9th step – “The Peace”
A “peace” it is a short word with a powerful meaning behind it.
To visualize a person who is feeling at peace in a moment we can see: his/hers arms loose, a heart has a normal rate of beatings, the movements are slow or normal, the overall posture is showing alertness and stability, the eyes are focusing on one thing with a gaze that shows attentiveness and respect in them. Moreover, one can feel calmness from that person and see a smile on their face. Therefore, we can observe physical, psychological, and physiological modifications in the overall picture of a person who is at peace.
Probably you wonder, why I am telling you that. You obviously saw not only once in your life someone who is peaceful and maybe that is you. Yes, I get it, my point is that we do see people like that in life, but can we consider ourselves one of them? Do we really know what it means to be at peace?
Peace is a big issue right now in our political arena and all over the world. The outside situation in our world is the mirror of our personal feelings, which is why we have to take care of ourselves first and clear our own issues, following, to be at peace.
I did explain in earlier steps that life will bring your way many different problems, people, experiences for a purpose to clear and to learn from them, that can shake you up, stress you, and make you do things which you can regret it latter. Nevertheless, in reality if you will face those experiences with the power of peace channeled from your heart then this is what you will create around you, PEACE. If you will simply react to the triggers from the outside world then you are reacting, but if you will choose to react in a different way than usually then you are a creator (not re-creator).
Here is the homework dear hearts:
Therefore, no matter what comes your way try to be the creator of your own destiny by choosing a peace in your heart not an opposition, an aggression, or a war! See the things from the different points of view. Have the courage to be different! A few months ago, I was on vacation in Poland and while driving I saw an advertising all over the city, which I liked very much, it sounded like this: “In a world of lemons be a lime!” So be the lime, you do not have to be a lemon like everyone else! Find your own peace in your heart, and just be it!
I know that is easier said than done, but if you will never try to do something different, you will never know that it was possible to do it at the first place. In addition, your physical appearance and your body will appreciate your new approach to life with a peace in it, because that will definitely affect that area of your life. Work on that subject with the patience and the understanding towards yourself, you are worth all of it!
With Love, and Peace Marzena P.
