Purpose

Today I would like to talk about purpose.

Yes. Purpose is something deep within us that sometimes we don’t even realize but we are in each and every way, small and big trying to fulfill.

If you think about it whatever we do, say or just the way we desire certain things in life is because deep inside of our heart there is a purpose. There is something in us that is seeking expression. And that something is our life purpose that is finding a way to emerge.

There is something specifically about you that you came here on earth to give. There is something specifically about you that is authentic and that must come out of you and only you.

It doesn’t matter what your beliefs may have been. It does not matter what others may have said concerning your life. It has nothing to do with your career choice. It is just this special giftedness that you have a particular way to express. Therefore begin to look inside of yourself and ask those questions: “what is about me that I came to give?” Perhaps you already know. Maybe you hear the spirit call inside of you that wants you to do a specific thing.

You may feel the impulse to join a group or there might be some things that inside of yourself you know you can do better. I want to invite you to explore these things. You may have a nine-to-five job or something like that. But don’t get caught up in that alone if you are not finding a deep joy in that thing. Don’t become too attached if you are not finding perfect peace in that thing.

Even while working your regular job begin to look for something else that you truly enjoy. Before you came here believe or not you must have agreed to come to fulfill your destiny or else there would not be any other purpose for your soul journey on earth. You are here as god’s divine expression. So begin to ponder on that. And think about all the ways you can fulfill your purpose.

This is your peace.

Love,

Redefining Peace

Today I would like to talk to us about peace. Peace has become this thing that we hear about all the times. But what happens nowadays it has lost its meaning. You may hear it, people may talk about it, but what is true peace and how does one awaken that peace within? We know that life has many demands on us. We take care of ourselves; we take care of our loved ones. We have to pay bills and we have to go to work. And what happens in the midst of all that busyness is that we don’t really take care of ourselves.

What I mean about ourselves is yes we eat, and yes we have proper hygiene and we look good outwardly. But I am talking about the inner self, the soul, the invisible aspect of us. That is our peace. It is when we cultivate that awareness, which is the spirit within. What makes us who we are? And what makes us think, what makes us do the things that we do? And why do we desire what we desire? When we begin to pose these questions and we begin to take time to analyze what we do and why we do it, we begin to cultivate peace. Why? Because we are created to find ourselves. We are created to find that inner voice. What happens most of the times is we are so busy doing everything else that we don’t really take that time. And when we would like to take that time there is always something else that is demanding our attention.

So I would like to talk to us today; you and I about how to take some time throughout our day and begin to spend some time alone and begin to find that place because it is your peace, this is my peace . So when you wake up in the morning, I know some people may pray depending on their religious background, people may have different practices. There are so many books written about the idea of peace and at times it may even become overwhelming.

But I would like us to talk about today not so much what everyone else has written about or what you have heard but some simple steps that you can take each and every day beginning now. It does not have to be something big that you have to write down or try to memorize. But if you wake up in the morning and you just say thank you. Thank you for being alive and you just carry an attitude of gratitude. That in itself will begin to help you create that awareness of peace. That is one thing you can do and you don’t have to have a long list of all the things you are thankful about. But you can begin by saying thank you.

The next thing you can do is pay attention to what’s happening around you, and the small details of life. If you are saying good morning to somebody just look at them in the eyes, and just really say good morning and mean it. If you ask somebody at work, ‘hey how are you doing’? Pay attention and listen to that person and show that you really care about their answer.

Another thing also you can do is find ways to make somebody happy; not that you can make others happy by trying to awaken their own happiness for them. But there are some little gestures you can do, such as giving someone a thank you card, or remembering something nice someone has done and call them to show appreciation. These are some small things we can do every day: being grateful, paying attention, listening as we talk to people, not talking just to talk, but also let the other person talk, listen and find little ways to show appreciation.

This is your peace.

Love,

Danielle

Ever wonder why we feel closer to someone after they die...?


I often ponder on that. What I finally understand is that the person that we see as flesh and blood is not the 'real' person. The physical body is just a cover-up and once it is removed the person's true nature is revealed; which is pure love.

You would realize that after someone you knew had passed it seems unreal, and somehow you are unable to accept that they have gone for good. That feeling connects you to the soul, which is mmortal.

Love does not die and love cannot die, it is God's substance in man and it's eternal. That is why even after someone has passed we still somehow feel connected to that person and no matter how long they've been gone, that feeling remains as long as we think about them.

The physical appearance often blocks the awareness of the divine nature in our ownselves and even more so in others. What if we were able to go beyond the flesh and behold who we really are in the eyes of our maker? And furthermore what if we can offer that vision to everyone we see? This is the Christ vision that does not see nor judge the appearance, but sees its own reflection each time it beholds someone.

I conclude that the physical body is quite misleading and if we rely on it solely in order to relate to others we will experience many disappointments.

Today offer that vision to everyone you see, but more importantly recognize that you are the essence of God, you can only love because that is who you are. Don't wait until after someone you know transition from this realm before you can realize his/or her divinity. No matter who they are or what they have done your job is to see them as they were created. They were primarily a pure divine idea in God's mind before they took on a human form. See that image, and hold on to it for this is your peace and your own inner awakening.


Peace be with you always,

Love,

Unproductivity

I have recently realized that one of the main reasons a soul suffers is because of unproductivity. What do I mean by this statement?

There is a big difference between 'being a busy-body' and 'being active towards a specific goal'. Working a 9-5 job does not mean you are really productive.

Going to church or doing religious rituals does not mean you are being productive. You can try to accomplish many things but yet arrive at nothing. And unless your intention, your goal and your purpose are well defined you will feel unhappy. And the reason for this is quite simple: besides all of these activities there is something else that you came to do, there is something else that you came to give and it is not in the world, if it were then there will not be any real reason for you to be here.

You are here because the world needs something that is unique, that is authentic and that only you came to give. You are a gift. You are the hands of God, without you he cannot express that thing he has imprinted in your spirit.

Therefore my dear friend do not let the world grab your full attention. Jesus said you are in this world but you are not of the world. That which you came to give the world cannot define it. The world does not know it. Therefore look deep within your heart and listen to the Spirit call and you will know what to do next.

I love you and may the peace of God keep you and lead you.

Inner Conflicts steal our peace

Any reasoning or idea that comes from the ego will create inner conflicts. The ego's sole purpose is to steal our peace. And the ability to hear directly from God is our peace. The sad news is most of the times we hear from the ego. It continuously suggests ideas that oppose God's ideas.

The ego wants to carry its own selfish desires through any soul that is available and to ultimately destroy it. This is why it is important to make ourselves unavailable by practicing divine presence. It is really not complicated. It is an inner shift; taking the attention away from us and dedicate it to world peace; which is God's intention. And that intention is inherent in us.

Naturally we want to do good, we want to make others happy, we want to make a difference in the world. Don't lose that perspective because your own salvation depends on it. Now don't waste any more time entertaining thoughts or ideas that are not of God. You are a gift to the world and a contributor to its peace. Remember that and forget everything else because the world awaits your soul harmony.

Peace be with always,

love,

Danielle

Beholding our beauty is our peace

Sometimes we may wonder 'what do I make of this life'? Or we may ask 'am I doing the things that I am supposed to be doing? Are the choices that I have made the right choices?

I mean how do we really know that we are on the right track? Or do we really know that we married the 'right' person? Or that we are doing the best in how we educate and raise our children? How do we really know that we are the best that we can be? And how do we accept the life that we live and be contented? I mean how do we really find that peace of mind?

There are so many questions in life. Many questions arise when we think about ourselves or our loved ones. So many things cross our minds and they puzzled us at times and cause us to wonder.

But ultimately what truly matters through it all is to know that we can look beyond these things and find something that is eternal, and find something that is immortal. Something that makes sense.

And that 'thing' is who we are at the core of our beingness. It is is who we were before we came here and who we are when we can look beyond all images,all concepts, all conclusions, and all reflections. It is who we will be after we depart this earth and who we will always be. That's eternal. It does not change no matter what we think and no matter what others think of us and no matter the choices that we make.

What really matters is who we truly are in our core, in our being. That's what we have to hang on to. That is what we must behold; our beauty, and our essence. It is the perfect image of God in us that nothing can change nor alter. And that is what we have to hold on to; beholding that which we were in God before we came on earth. Before we experienced all that we have and before we did all that we have done and will continue to do until we die. This is our peace.

Peace be with you always,

Love,

Response-ability

We all face challenges. At times it may seem as if they come from diverse directions all at once, and even to the point of overwhelming. What is one to do?

One must respond. One must confront life challenges. Why? Because the very reason we are having this earthly experience is to learn how to confront, how to exist and survive. Failing to do so will result in withdrawal, loneliness, confusion and even depression.

The ability to respond is not fully awakened in everyone. For some people they have to learn. Some people avoid talking about their issues or going in depth, while others suppress them. These are not the proper way to handle or face life issues.

If anyone tells you they are not facing any challenges that tells me they are not living on planet earth. So trust me you are not alone. The only difference is some people have a better handling on life and life issues.

The truth is problems will come, challenges will arise, you can't stop them from coming, but you can rename them. You can redefine them. Sometimes the same kind of problems will come about as many times as needed until you have withdrawn some understanding from them.

The real cause of your unhappiness is not your problems. The real issue is you haven't awakened the ability that is within you to solve them. There is no power outside of you that is going to resolve your problems for you. The solution lies within your core, your essence.

You have the power and ability to rise above every challenge. Only be willing to look beyond them and see them for what they really are. For they are your teachers in disguise. At the core of everything that you are feeling or experiencing there is something you can learn.

Seek therefore for an opportunity to grow and evolve your soul no matter what challenges come your way. You will be amazed at what the school of life will reveal to you. Let this truth awaken your ability to respond to every problem big or small. Remember that power resides inside of you.

Your life is YOUR responsibility, do not neglect it.

Peace be with you always,

Love,

Danielle

If you are hurting...

For everything that is causing us pain at the root of it there is fear. What causes fear is a lack of understanding.

This means the root cause of our pain is not another person or something outside of us . It is mainly due to error. Error in this context means darkness, or lack of light which stands for understanding.

So next time you are experiencing pain; rather it is emotional or physical look for the cause within. Ask what is it that I need to understand better. And it usually begins with yourself. So rather ask 'what is it about myself that I need to understand better;” in doing this you are taking charge. You are being the cause over your life. You are creating your own reality.

Truth in us, or the Christ in us is the light that comes to light up every man. There is a part of your being that knows this to be true. Even if you don't really believe it. It believes it for you. This is grace. This is the grace that teaches us to say 'no' to ungodliness. It is ungodly to look for the cause of our problems without. As a matter of fact it is insane. Always turn inward, trust in your ability to hear from within. And let grace do for you what you are unable to do on your own strength.

Peace be with you always.

Love,

Danielle

vul·ner·a·bil·i·ty

It is the ability to be vulnerable; to be open to attack. Attack here means to face the attack thoughts that come from our own personal ego and to examine the overall mental attitude that is causing us pain. This takes a great amount of courage!

To ask 'What is ruining my life?', and to say 'well let me look deep within'. Not everyone has such ability as easy as it may sound. Most people would rather look without to find faults or blames. This is the wide path that Jesus spoke about in the Book of Matthew. He said “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

Most people are looking without. This is the wide gate. Only few look within to find the true direction for their lives. This is the narrow gate. It is the gate of the heart. True enlightenment begins there, simply by opening our hearts and listen.

Being vulnerable is a spiritual practice. Any practices that challenge the human's heart is therefore a spiritual practice. But most people don't take the time to be open. Most people prefer to be superficial and most people would rather be with people who don't really challenge their character.

Why? Because the ego does not like to be exposed. It works really hard at hiding itself and it is quite good at it.

The ego is the cause of confusion, and all emotional reactions we suffer on a daily basis. On occasion it will allow us to experience some temporal enjoyments so that way we may believe that 'things are not so bad after all'.

The question is how are you really doing? Deep in your heart do you feel like things are okay? Do you need help? Do you need to be open? Being open does not necesarily mean to find someone to talk to, although sometimes you may feel lead to do so. Primarily this means to open your heart to yourself. Face yourself and go deep within. Are they some things that you need to admit about your own character or personal behavior?

Are your thoughts mostly destructive or constructive? Being vulnerable is being honest and open to anything that you feel in your heart. And I mean speaking and listening to yourself without any reservations.

Today I encourage you to look and see what is in your heart. Allow any and everything to come out in the open. Only then can the light of Truth illumine the heart and cause it to experience a new vitality.

The brilliance of your divinity, the Christ within and your true self is only a moment away. Choose the narrow gate and open your heart.

I know God spoke to your heart today. Someone you know may need to hear this. Please pass it on.

Peace be with you always,

Danielle

Food for thought...

When we came into this world, the world already existed with its civilization, customs and beliefs. your family already existed. Everything was already set in place and then you arrived as a new member into the family you belonged to, the culture, the civilization and so on.

So my question is where were we before we got to our mother's womb or I should ask what were we? and what in the world were we doing? we always talk about life after birth. How about prior to that?

After you have pondered on this, feel free to share in the 'comments' field. I would love to hear.

Peace and love,

Immunity

So How does one become and remain unaffected by the effects of the world Collective beliefs?

Well you must begin with your own world, your own heart, and your own beliefs. What has been the nature of your thoughts lately? How do you feel about everything? What is your intention? Why do you behave, speak, think and act the way you do? Have you observed yourself lately? How do you react to constructive criticism?

Most people are afraid to look deep within, but yet they want to make a difference in the world. The world begins within you. You cannot make any effective and lasting changes in the outer world unless you learn to become comfortable with who you are deep within.

Do You want to know who you are? If so, take time and observe yourself closely. Do you want to know what you need to change in your own character? Then ask someone who deeply loves and cares for your life. But you may begin by pondering on these: Am I loving? Am I kind? Am I understanding?

Our behaviors, our words, thoughts and our actions are a reflection of how much Truth we know and practice. Jesus said this and it is true, the Truth you know will make you free. This knowledge begins by taking a closer look at ourselves and by just being plain honest. Then with an open mind and heart you ask what must I do, where should I go, then you wait as you trust and believe that help is available.

Here is the sad truth the majority of us is busy doing everything else except looking deep within. So the world needs an awakening. Your inner world needs an awakening. This awakening is the basis for your immunity.

Immunity is the condition that permits either natural or acquired resistance to disease. You want to be unaffected by this widespread disease of what I like to call unconscious living? Here is how it begins. Ask: how am I really doing?

Peace be with you always,

Danielle

You are not alone...

There is a consciousness out there about everything. It is the collective belief system of the human race. It is what most people believe most of the time. It is the sin of this world because what most people believe is quite negative and very contagious.

How does one overcome the sin of the world, how can you become unaffected by what others think and believe about marriage, friendship, success, love, and money, just to name a few. How can you avoid divorce, broken relationships, failure, fear, and lack?

If you are feeling the effects of the world collective beliefs you are not alone, you are actually part of the majority. But it does not have to be that way. You have a say about what you choose to believe and you do not have to be a victim just because everyone else is. This is not about fate or luck, I am talking here about becoming a creator of your own reality and rise above all the negativities that are polluting the human psyche. Yes your child can and will succeed, yes you can have a happy marriage, yes you will come out of debts, yes, yes and yes....

You can change your thought pattern, it will take some discipline and some spiritual practice, but you can begin even now. Ask yourself 'what are some of the things in my life that I wish I could change'. Well now presents the opportunity. If you can change the way you think about that thing, that thing will change. Is it about a person, a situation? Or could it be that you need to work on a project or a relationship?

There is no better time but now. Don't be a victim. That mentality does not work and will never work. It is not your fate to experience unhappiness. You are destined to live life to its fullest and YOU must make the change. Not someone else, you must change YOU; meaning your perception on life. Just remember that it starts with you. Don't wait for someone else to change or some opportunity to present itself. What is needed is all in you! You are enough. Believe it, see it. You got this.

Peace be with you!

It's been a while...

To my readership:

It is good to be back into the swing of things so to speak. Selah, my 19 month-old daughter in particular, has been keeping me very very busy. Nevertheless I am back and I am glad to be here and I thank you for your patience. I love motherhood but I also love to write and it's been far too long. I like to share what I learn from my own personal experiences. I also love feedbacks and questions because they allow me to dig deeper.

About three years ago I began to do some serious soul searching. I felt like I was too easily disturbed by outside circumstances. I am sure many of you experience this from time to time. Back then the idea of inner peace seemed far away. Just like it does to many people today. The only difference with me is that I was determined to find it at all cost.

Because of my religious background I knew to pray and to study the scriptures in depth. And little by little I was lead to what to study next, I would ask questions and then I would pick up a book and find the answer. I really felt God's divine guidance throughout my search. I was really looking for My True Self. The Christ within, the Image of God.

During the course of my soul journey was born Divine Peacefulness. This book is the substance of the truths I have learned about me, God, the universe and Man. And the profound insights therein came from Wisdom herself.

Thank you for allowing me to share a little bit about me. There is so much to say. Let us stay in touch right here as I continue to share through my posts.

Peace be with you always,

Danielle
