Peace and Love are my natural states of being. Everything else is just bullshit.
As Yoda once said, “Luminous beings are we. Not this crude matter.” You are peace and love incarnate – made from love and the elements of the stars. Whatever else we have manufactured on this earth that opposes that natural state of being is just a construct of the mind.
Today, only give energy to peaceful and loving thoughts, ideas, and feelings. I’m sure by now you have heard the Cherokee parable about “The Two Wolves,” but it bears repeating just the same:
“A grandfather is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?” The grandfather simply replied “The one you feed.””
So, today simply feed the thoughts that are peaceful, and call “bullshit” to the others. If you feel moved to write things in your gratitude journal or tell people you love them, do it, but all I really want you to do today is feed that wolf that brings you peace … to remember that you are peace; you are love. This is so powerful …
That reminds me of another thing Yoda said, “You had the power all along, my dear.” Oh, wait, that was Glinda the Good Witch. Well, they were both wise….
