Peace in surrender

As you begin your holiday season we wish you a deep and lasting peace. Peace, dear ones, is always there for you. It arises when you can accept life as it is, surrender to what is in front of you and inside you right in this moment, and know that within you lies the power to change direction in the very next

Surrender to life and know that there is a reason for everything. Whether you like what is in front of you or not, whether you are rushing or relaxing, whether people are acting as you wish or not, practice saying to yourself, "There is perfection in this moment. There is love to be found or expressed in this moment. I give thanks for this moment." Then, dear ones, your very next word or deed will be based on love, trust, and an acknowledgment that you are and always have been deeply and dearly loved.

It is absolutely fine – and often best – to change your circumstances! If you are not happy, by all means, make different choices. Try to see life a little differently. Try to allow for your so-called "negative feelings" and love yourself through them until they dissipate. But always, recognize that there is perfection. If someone cuts you off in traffic, there is perfection. You get angry. There is perfection. You realize you need more sleep so you are not so prone to reacting. There is perfection. You go home instead of running errands and you are saved from an accident. There is perfection. There are so many reasons for everything that occurs in your life and as human beings, in linear time you cannot possibly see all the reasons, interactions, and possibilities that arise from every single choice that every one of you makes. Suppose you ignored your feelings in this case. You ran your errands. You got into an accident. There is perfection even in this. You will learn. You will listen to your soul's whispers the next time. There is perfection.

Dear ones, peace comes when you can acknowledge the perfection in the moment and make the most loving choice in the very next. In this fashion you stop resisting life, you learn, you grow and, you deepen your ability to find and express love. In so doing you place yourself in a vibration where life becomes easier, kinder, and more gentle.

Peace, dear ones. It is already here for you, just waiting to be acknowledged.
