LIVING IN PEACE IN THIS MOMENT

LIVING IN PEACE IN THIS MOMENT
It certainly is interesting times we are living through. We will learn a lot!!For the past couple of weeks I’ve been a keen observer of life and people. We have worked very hard to separate fact from fiction. Unfortunately much of the impactful fiction has come from well meaning family and friends, out of concern we were in Florida.We’ve made the journey back with a straight through drive, and are now quarantining and are in day 3 of 14.All of us who are heeding the warnings, socially isolating and staying home whenever possible will learn a lot about ourselves, and many will realise how much they really aren’t happy in their own skins!I’ve already read a lot about people struggling with boredom already, and I fear it has only just begun!!Quoting from the reading below, “Before seeking help to change our lives, many of us were heavily burdened by pain” many will realise they really need help to change their lives and find what inner peace and healthy self esteem are all about!Find yourself in that position, PLEASE get in touch. You’re not alone IF you choose to reach out!!Every day I feel a great amount of gratitude for having gone through the work to recover a life I am happy with. I truly live one day at a time and will be totally sane and at inner peace as long as do the things that have served me well over the past many years, and I am ready, able and willing to share the path!Joy is there every day for us if we have healthy self esteem and a daily program!! Allow the joy! luvAllowing-The-Joy People need joy quite as much as clothing. Some of them need it far more. —Margaret Collier GrahamLife is not without pain and travail. They are necessary to new awareness which prompts growth. And the gift of growth is joy. Pain and joy are thus intertwined. It is possible to feel only the burden of pain and not the exhilaration of joy, however.Before seeking help to change our lives, many of us were heavily burdened by pain. But we were unable to open ourselves to the knowledge made possible by that pain. We were on a treadmill, accumulating painful experiences at every step, unable to capture the joy that was ever present.We can have hope. Joy does await each of us today. We must open our eyes to it, just as we must open our hearts to one another. We must be willing to peel away the layers of pain to expose the core, the seedling of joy. And we need joy in our lives, just as surely as we need rest and a good diet. We need the light heart that joy fosters for a better perspective on the many experiences we’ll face today, and every day.Recovery has given me this new option. It guarantees me that every hurdle will be lightened. The knowledge that joy is inherent, within every experience, is mine, now and forever.
