What Would PEACE Do?

What would PEACE do?

I have been asking myself this question for the past week. I ask it when I feel my ego trying to push me out of the way and take over the spotlight.

A few days ago, while on the phone with my sister, a certain topicย came up, which my ego assumes it knows EVERYTHING about. I felt my ego (the control freak in me), craving so desperately to interrupt her and hand out my two sense, only to be “RIGHT”. When I felt this urge, I took a few deep breathes, brought myself back to the present moment, and asked myself, “What would PEACE do?” I found that when I anchored myself back to the present moment, by taking a few deep breathes and then asking myself this question, my ego disappeared. And the answer which came to me was this: LISTEN. Be PRESENT.

By fully listening to my sister, without allowing my ego to judge every word coming from her mouth, I was able to connect with her in a much more fulfilling and peaceful manner. Once we realize that we DO NOT have to participate in our ego’s self-destructive games, we no longer feel inhibited by our ego. We stop taking ourselves and our lives so seriously. It doesn’t have to be as hard as we make it out to be. By asking ourselves this question before our ego takes flight, we enable our true-selves to shine through. In the end we create more meaningful and heart-felt relationships, with ourselves and with others. The first step, is noticing when it is our egos in play or our authentic selves. Simply, be aware.

Note: This takes continuous practice. There are many times when my ego moves in ever so subtly and takes control. However, by practicing over and over again, the ego slowly loses its grip. If we want to create happier and healthier relationships with others and with ourselves, we must be willing to change.

Today, I Remember to be Grateful!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

This day is dedicated to giving thanks for the lives we live. It is a day to celebrate all in our life and be grateful.

Showing gratitude for your life is one way to bring a smile to your face. Many people suffer much more than you could ever imagine. Being grateful, even for the littlest things, can put your life in perspective and fill you with Peace and Happiness.

As Tony Robbins once said, “When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.”

Today, let’s make a list of all that we are grateful for. Giving thanks to what you currently obtain in your life, is an easy way to bring more of what you desire, to you.

May everyone enjoy this day with their loved ones. For those of you who are alone, you are in my heart. If not in the physical form, then spirit. ๐Ÿ™‚
