The Beginning of Peace

posted by Guy Finley

Being at peace, and learning to live with quiet confidence — even as the world spins wildly around us — begins as we realize within us the presence and power of an interior stillness that neither needs, nor searches for, anything outside of itself in order to quietly know itself.

    How can I live in peace when I feel confident about nothing? No matter how much I give, how hard I try, how I continue to tuck away lies told and “just live”…I can’t find peace. I am sinking.

    See Guy’s blog entitled The Power of The Equinox , Release and Return as one example of how he invokes nature in harmony with our true spirit. Quit “paddling” so fast and just “float” until life’s waters eventually calm down. “Give too much and try too hard” are acts of resistance to life’s circumstances . You are trying to steer Life your way. Life charts its’ own course. If you find yourself doing anything “too hard or with much effort” you are in opposition to what is, be still, and aware, and you will find ….”an interior stillness that neither needs, nor searches for, anything outside of itself in order to quietly know itself.”

Don't Be Tricked by Negativity
All forms of negativity may only dwell in us as long as they trick us into granting them permission to live there. Our task isn’t to overpower, or otherwise deny these sufferings, but to bring such light to bear upon them inwardly that, by our own clarity, their insanity must flee.

Reject Soul-Destructive Energies
There are many un-illumined and downward trending parts in all of us that not only seek out their unconscious counterparts (in others) but that are secretly strengthened in the conflicted company of such dark and negative energies.
