Lately it has come to me that the greatest gift one can have in life, is peace of mind. I meet so many people throughout my life and work that share with me about their anxiety, their endless thoughts and worry.
To put your head down at night and feel content is the greatest feeling in the world.
And then waking up excited for a new day… glorious!
I believe Peace is something we all would like at our deepest core level. We come from Love ❤ and we return to Love, ❤ but sometimes unfortunately we get lost along the way. Life’s stressors, relationships, health challenges, addictions, and the way of the world, can all interfere with our peace of mind.
This morning I was reading from Wayne Dyer’s Book ” Secrets for Success and Inner Peace” and I found this:
Suppose you had a choice between two magic wands. With Wand A, you can have any physical thing you desire by simply waving it. With Wand B, you can have a sense of peace for the rest of your life regardless of what circumstances arise. Which would you pick? A guarantee of stuff, or inner peace for the remainder of your life? If you opt for peace, then you already have Wand B.Simply have a mind that is open to everything but attached to nothing. Let it all come and go as it will. EnJOY it all, but never make your happiness or success dependent on an attachment to any thing, any place, and particularly, any person.

“Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.”
How often do we tend to stir up situations when the water is muddy and make them worse by giving them attention and energy? Lest we forget another great quote:
“Where Attention goes Energy flows; Where Intention goes Energy flows!” James Redfield
There are many reasons we do this but some that come to mind are:
1) We over-analyze and read more into situations than we need to. For example, maybe someone did not react in a way you expected or they said something you found to be off. Maybe they are having a bad day or they are sick or depressed or whatever, it matters not.
We don’t have to react or stir up the waters unless we CHOOSE to. This is where the quote comes in… ‘Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone”. When we leave it alone it can give US peace and clear the waters perhaps.
2) Our egos jump in and we need to ‘be right’ or to feel we have control of a situation. 🙂 What about that saying “Do I want to be ‘right’ or ‘HAPPY’?Choosing happy means you let the waters clear and do not give it energy or attention.
Take a look at the picture in this blog post and perhaps use it as a tangible reminder to consciously CHOOSE how you react to ‘muddy water’ situations. Do you take your stick and stir it up and make it worse? Or do you send the situation Love and let it rest? Choices, choices. We always have choices. 🙂
