“Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter. It must begin with your own thoughts and then extend outward. It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises.”
– A Course in Miracles, Workbook lesson 34
You have a choice in what you think. I have said it before, I remind you again. We always have a choice in what we think. We always have a choice, in every moment, to choose something different. To choose peace instead of anger and love instead of fear.
In every moment there is a learning assignment, in every moment there is a choice. Something happens, someone says something, do you choose to be in reaction and hold on to loveless perceptions towards yourself and others? Or do you choose to remind yourself that you have the power to extend your perception beyond what is right in front of you?
The miracle is when you shift your perception from fear to love. The miracle is when you are willing to see things differently even though you might not really know how to do that.
When you are truly willing to shift your perception, but you have no idea how to do so in a difficult situation, this is when you create the space to allow a higher power of your own understanding to do for you what you cannot do for yourself. Simply by being willing.
Shifting our perception in certain situations can sometimes be very difficult, but that is why it is called a miracle.
That is why we choose to ground ourselves every day first through meditation and prayer, in the morning if possible when we are most impressionable, in a different mental state. That is why we devote every day to miracles by developing our daily practice. That is why we train ourselves in these ways so we are able to cultivate the awareness needed to self-monitor our minds and to know when we have separated from love. When we have chosen fear, and find the willingness to see things differently.
Today, in every moment, you have the power to choose PEACE…
