Choosing Peace Is The Path

Peace is calling me lately.

While looking at the stars in the night sky, I heard the phrase “choose peace, allow path”. Peace and calm washed over me as I watched the stars and felt the truth of this phrase. I understood clearly that life unfolds more gracefully when we choose peace rather than chasing excitement and fixed outcomes. It was clear to me that choosing peace is the path.

By choosing peace, we experience oneness with the world around us. This opens our mind and allows us to see the path more clearly. Choosing peace allows us to align with both universal forces and our deepest nature. We become centered in our best qualities and the present moment. This allows us to flow gracefully with life. Then we can relax and trust life to bring us what we need, instead of chasing after what we want or think we need.

Choosing Peace Is The Path

The higher truth is that life wants good for us. Life/ God/ Universe knows far more than we do. As the song lyrics go, you don’t always get what you want, but you always get what you need. Sometimes we need to accept the outcomes that happen as for our highest good, even if we can’t see the good currently. Be willing to see it differently. This willingness will open space in your mind and heart for a new, broader perspective.

Marianne Williamson reminds us “The universe is self-organizing and self-correcting, fully invested in promoting your greater good. Align with its matrix through three steps: trust, surrender and love.”

When we want what’s best for all concerned, we can be less attached to our personal desires. We might come to realize that what is happening is good for us in an unexpected way. Let’s say your AC goes out during the heat wave like mine did. At first, I was hot and irritable. Then I made some calls and start accepting the situation. I’ve found more gratitude for the gift of any AC, the gift of technology, the gift of savings, and the gift of a company that did what they promised to do.

Now that my new AC system is installed and working great, I’m happy and grateful. I can see that I’ve added to myself, my home, and my life by investing in a new HVAC system. Did I want to spend the money? No. But ultimately, I’m grateful for the experience and outcome.

Hopefully I’ll remember this lesson, the next time that I receive another surprise!

I’d love to hear what is calling you on your path.

To peaceful paths,

Brad
