“Peace. Love. TempleSoul……”
The following is a line from a Bernard Fanning song –
“How many times can we say we’ve hit the bottom
We still find a way further down
Whatever darkness should descend on us
We’ll still find our way around”
Over the past few years, I have had more of these moments than I care to remember and each time I had a tower moment I would think,
“Well this is it – this must be rock bottom”,
but then something else would come along and trump it.
I would sing this song in my mind and manage a slight wry smile.
There are times when life feels good, and there are times when it feels, well let’s be honest, feels like crap.
Tower moments occur for our growth.
We need to remember this as we navigate our way through the ebb and flow of life.
It’s not easy, and it’s important to remember that we are stronger than we think.
And this brings me to my Xmas message.
I’ve had the opportunity to think about this a great deal this year.
Peace is an internal state of being.
To be peaceful is simply a matter of choice.
We can’t rely on external factors to bring us to a state of peace.
Sure, external factors can contribute to a sense of peace and wellbeing but ultimately the choice lies within.
A sense of peace arises when you choose to practice forgiveness.
A sense of peace arises when you choose to practice acceptance.
A sense of peace arises when you choose to practice gratitude.
So, no matter what is going on around you – what drama, what tower moments – a sense of peace can be attained within – as energetic beings, this is who we intrinsically are – peace, love, and joy.
Remember that no person, place or thing can bring you peace – peace is simply a state of being – choosing to be peaceful is all you have to do to attain peace.
As life throws challenges at you, creates tower moments and makes you question everything you have ever known – know that everything is happening for a reason.
Trust the process.
You are so much more than you think you are.
Everything you need lies within you.
May we head towards the light in 2020 and if we encounter the darkness may we all still manage to find our way around.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I look forward to bringing some peace and healing to your lives in 2020.
All my love,
