Guiding Thought

We are now aware of our complete harmony with All of Life. We choose to carry the harmony of Oneness with us in all areas of our life. Awareness of Oneness brings immediate peace to all our relationships and interactions. We choose Peace. We choose recognizing our Unity with All. We choose Oneness with All.

Reflection

Today I had the thought, “Healing is easy…you just have to do it“.

I felt like I had a revelation: do it; it’s easy. And I felt the ease of doing it.

People think healing is hard, but it’s not. The body knows how to heal. People just don’t do what the body needs to do in order to heal. Like this woman I know who is pre-diabetic…and drinks coke all day, every day. regular coke.

We know better.

know better. Like the other day when I ate two pieces of toffee.

Why is there tension between the knowing and the doing? Why do I (sometimes) do what I know is not good for me? Why do I think, “I need to eat healthier” and then buy toffee?

My health has been on my mind lately. My choices about health have been on my mind lately. Watching the patterns of people’s choices and their health is a fascinating study.

The study is objective when watching other people, but subjective if watching one’s self. It’s a little more disconcerting, a little closer to home, to watch the choices I make and how they affect my behaviors regarding my health.

You may think this is off-topic. What does this have to do with Peace?

The underlying theme is choices. We choose to carry the harmony of Oneness with us in all areas of our life.

Let me paraphrase where I began: “Choosing Peace is easy…you just have to do it“.

Yet, I see the psychology–or the tension–that gets in the way. The barriers that I have to knowing how to heal and doing it are similar to the barriers I have to choosing peace and doing it. The first impacts my body, the second impacts my work and my relationships, but the workings of my mind are similar: something pulls me away from knowing what I need to do, from doing what I truly want to do.

These patterns, these mental (and physical) habits can be loosened. I can release their grip. When the mental-emotional-or physical pattern is no longer there, then in every moment I have a real choice. I am not bound by some mental-emotional-physical energy that pushes me automatically toward something.

The choice is fully mine. I am free. Then I am free to choose Peace, Harmony, Health…and it is easy.
