Making Peace with Yourself

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid". Christ Jesus. (john 14:27)


Making peace with yourself first involves becoming aware of yourself. The majority of us is living unconsciously, (meaning not being fully present). As a result we often feel divided and conflicted inside. And these negative feelings or vibrations affect not only our bodies but also our affairs.

Doing our daily routines, taking care of ourselves or loved ones, working towards some long term goals, and squeezing some vacations here and there or some other forms of enjoyment, may at first glance give the impression that we are consciously living. The truth is in spite of all these ‘doings’ many of us still miss the mark of truth; which is the essential thing: being fully present.

To be present is to enter into a state of oneness with oneself that guarantees peacefulness. It is the acknowledgement of LIFE, the essence behind and beyond everything and everyone. It is practicing the consciousness of being one with the eminent presence of God within you and everything while performing your daily activities.

Because we ignore life we cannot enjoy it, thus we often go against the law of life, which is love. This ignorance of life, or this state of unconsciousness is the source of unhappiness and misfortunes. Consequently we begin to despise our lives because we deny Our true Self, and nature wich is love and our natural state of consciousness which is peacefulness. But you can begin now to shift your full attention to what is going on right now, yes at this very moment. It is not what you do that brings peace or fulfillment, but rather your state of consciousness as you do what you do.

This is the beginning of freedom. What I mean by freedom here is to come to a place in your life where no matter what goes on without, that is in your life experiences and affairs, you are undisturbed.

If you can practice Self awareness while being conscious of Life, which is represented by the presence of love within; this love that you is capable of solving all the conflicts you may be currently experiencing. But it is a practice just like many other spiritual principles.

Feeling conflicted inside is not a problem, however suppressing or denying that feeling is. It will be helpful if you would simply pay attention to your heart.
You must acknowledge those ’problem areas’ as they surface and deal with each of them, or they will pop out again in your experiences sooner or later. You cannot run away from yourself, therefore make peace, and make peace now. The solution is not to get into another relationship, another job, to relocate, or to make more money. Sometimes it is a character issue.

The minute you are feeling disturbed deep within your heart, it is your cue to pause and silent the conscious mind and become aware. God does speak to man. He continuously invites us to commune with him. Every inner conflict is an opportunity to unite your mind with the divine. As Jesus admonishes us, you must enter the prayer closet within when you pray. This is what will lead you to oneness with your heavenly father. This communion will allow you to create this state of consciousness, which is your true state of being and of peacefulness.

Profound Blessings,

Live your life right NOW.

We have the tendency to wait on something, someone or some future events in order to fulfill a void, or something in the present moment that seems unbearable or unpleasant. The truth is the source of our unhappiness lies precisely in this waiting period.

If you pay close attention to your mind you would realize that it is usually thinking in the past or fast forwarding to the future. This mental behavior is what steals the joy of the now. And it is really insane. Because if you think about it each present moment becomes a thing of the past or some thing to look forward in the future.

The question is when are you going to start living? Living in the past or the future is living in the shadow of death. That kind of life is no life at all. What can one really expect from past regrets or living with some hope that maybe one day everything will be all right. The next question is what are you really doing NOW in order to produce the kind of experiences that you are hoping for?

The minute you become aware of the fact that Now is all that you really have, all the other times, meaning past and future, will cease to exist.

Once you learn the reality of the present moment you will cherish it and make the best of it. It is your true gift from above.

It is true that we sometimes come accross challenging situations that seem to disrupt the flow of our existence. Some things are out of our control such as the death of a loved one. Other things we have control of such as our health and our overall well-being.

The truth is no matter what is happening in your life circumstances, your essence, the divine life in you is unbreakable. It is not and can never be affected by challenges, births or deaths, financial crisis or any other situations you may be facing. The problem is we rarely stop to think about the divine in us. This is due to the fact that we merely stop to think or ponder about eternal truths. And these are the truths Jesus said will make us free once we know them.

When we become aware, meaning once we take the time to look within ourselves instead of focusing on our ‘problems’, we tap into the invisible realm. We escape the illusive realities of troubles and problems and connect to eternity. The bible teaches that eternity is in the heart of man. Furthermore it states that all things shall pass away and only the Word remains, the word also known as the Christ and the Christ is in you.

In that divine awareness suddenly your problems become small, surmountable or they simply vanish. Something happens when you learn to abide in that consciousness; that is the pure acknowledgement that now is your gift from God, now is all that matters. Only in the now can you truly open your heart to God and commune with him. This is your act of worship. This is prayer.

Moreover being in the now helps you have control of your mind, thus your life experiences. It gives you the opportunity to surrender the things that seem uncontrollable and the strength to accept the things that you cannot change, at least not right NOW.

You want to change your life experiences? Do something about it and do it now, not later or some time in the distant future. It is a big mistake to believe so. Right now, right this minute is all it takes to make a difference in your life situation. Do something different today. Open your heart right now to God and let go of the things of the past, let go of anyone and any offenses. Surrender everything, give it all to him and trust him all over again.

And each time your problems seem to get out of hand. Don’t hesitate you can do it all over again. Simply bring your awareness to the present moment and commune with your heavenly father, because your strength, your freeedom and your happiness depend on this. Do it now.

In His loving care,
