Happiness that comes from within is permanent, as it’s not dependent on experiences and objects that come and go. I have experienced sweet peace or moments of deep gratitude even in the midst of dealing with the challenge of my hearing fluctuating, giving me moments when I have the blessing of hearing and others when the world is a whisper.
I have found that the minute I let go of resistance – courage and clarity takes place. The choices that I need to make for the resolution of a challenge starts to become more apparent. Sometimes, the solution is to do nothing, but to allow for an internal emotional and spiritual shift to take place so life can be enjoyed.
Shifts of my ideas about God, the nature of reality and release of judgments and of some fears have taken place in my life. I see life as an ongoing journey with infinite potential and there is always more room for inner growth and release, so I am still a work in progress.
What I find interesting is that as I simplified my inner world, the outer world also became more serene and simpler. As an example, I moved from the city to a semi-rural town though I never planned it, the opportunity presented itself, and I took it. By having a clearer space in my life, I could move into owning an online business and do what I love to do the most, which is to write.
We all owe it to ourselves to lead the quality of life we want, but it starts by looking within and letting go of what stands in the way of our inner peace and potential.
To your inner rhythm and peace!
The source of all seen and unseen –
I am willing to let go of all
thoughts, attachments and fears
that robs me of my peace of mind,
but I need the Grace and Stillness of Spirit
to permeate my entire being.
Send angels on earth seen and unseen
to assist me in my daily life
and my nightly dreams,
so I can see with clarity
what I need to release and
have the courage to let go
of what no longer works
for my well-being and inner peace.
Dear God, I am willing to be a channel of your peace.
