Guiding Thought

Knowing yourself as Peace fortifies your inner awareness of the unity within. Through gratitude for the Life You Are, connect with harmony. Through harmony, Be restored and strengthened, and thus be able to carry your Inner Peace to all of life’s activity around you.


My entry with today’s guiding thoughts has to do with “gratitude”. The curious worker bee in my head is always seeking out ways and techniques to get to that place of Peace and Harmony. It is like finding the right music station. I am not sure I know what I want to listen to, but I sure know it when I hear it. It is as simple as that.

Gratitude and appreciation practices are gaining a fair amount of press in a variety of circles today, especially in the Big Mind circles (do check out HeartMath, the Global Coherency Project, Gregg Braden, Tom Kenyon, etc.), not only for the peace it creates in the body/mind arena, but its central role in evolutionary consciousness.

For the last several years I have been a big proponent of heart/brain coherency practices (which draw gratitude and appreciation into the heart accompanied by breath), not only for the simplicity of the technique, but also for how quickly shifts take place in the body, heart, and mind. This practice is also central to an upcoming sound healing workshop I will be attending next month. I “get opportunity” to practice what I preach.

Right now it’s all about the body for me, a mix of awareness, breath, and feeling. There are, of course observable amplifications of my senses, both internal and external, but what is more interesting to observe in myself, is that when I am faithful to the practice, I am less reactive to people and situations which normally take me to barking, judgment, and impatience.  My internal peace and harmony extends outward; I am anchored in the Great Knowing of myself as Peace.
