Choose peace, choose love

No matter what situation you find yourself in, you can always find peace, for peace is born within your heart of hearts. No matter what situation you find yourself in, you can always find love, for you are made of love and it is only resistance to being the loving soul that you are, that makes life's challenges so difficult.

You want to be peaceful. You want to be loving. These things are not dependent on your outer world or the people around you. You can choose to embrace peace at any moment. You can choose to be kind and loving to yourself in any moment and this will translate out into your world as you find it easier to be kind and loving to others.

We understand it is hard to choose peace when others choose chaos, and yet you will feel so much better! It is only your human conditioning that says you must be upset if things don't go your way, you must feel badly if others behave badly, and that you must feel worry if you do not know how to solve a problem.

In reality, if things don't go your way, try to embrace life as the adventure it truly is. "Ok God, this situation isn't going as I wished it would. I will embrace what is in front of me now, intend better, and trust you know how to guide me into greater joy." Dear ones that attitude will feel so much better than throwing tantrums, assuming you have done something wrong, blaming life, blaming others, or feeling as if you will never have your dreams come true. When things don't go your way, perhaps dear ones, you have something to learn, or God simply has better plans. Choose peace. Choose to be kind and loving to yourself. And watch how things unfold in grace, rather than in chaos.

Suppose someone behaves badly around you. The ego wishes to react. And yet the soul says, "I do not want to be around loving behavior and so I will move away. If I must be around it, I will not take in energies of unkindness. I will remain loving, looking at this other person as if they are child who does not know any better. I will do my best to realize that what they have said or done speaks volumes about them, and says very little about me. I do not have to prove or justify myself to anyone. I know who I am. I am love incarnate." This dear ones is truth. This will feel so much better than entering into arguments, gossip, and blame. It takes mental muscle to be loving in spite of unkindness. You must practice. And yet the spiritual strength you will gain will repay you in peace and joy for the rest of your lives. It is worth the effort to learn new ways to behave when others are unkind.

Suppose you have a problem you do not know how to solve - bills to pay, something to fix, a person in your life who cannot be taught... In these situations dear ones, you can still choose peace. You can still choose love. First love yourselves by asking God and your angels for help: "God I am worried. I have this problem. I need help." As for the comfort and reassurance you need, "Dear God, comfort me, I am scared. Reassure me that this will be solved. Help me have greater faith in you." And then dear ones trust. Trust that because you know you are a child of God, made of His light, that God loves and cares and will guide you to solve your situation. Choose peace in the meantime, for worry does you no good at all.

As human beings, most of you have not been taught to choose peace, and to choose love. Instead your society conditions you to react, to worry, to argue, to justify, to blame, but these things dear ones will never make you happy. Think of choosing peace and love as a workout for the soul - at first you may find it very difficult to do so, but as you gain strength you feel better and better, kinder, more peaceful, and more loving. And this dear ones is truly what you all want to feel.
