It’s my birthday and all I want is… World Peace. OK...GO :o)
Wait, you mean it’s not that easy? Right… I guess I have been known to be an incurable idealist. Well, if you can’t order it on Amazon, maybe there’s another way… (I am a very determined birthday girl after all…)
I remember when I first became aware of my desire for true peace as a teenager. Though I know now that I had been on a spiritual journey all along, this was one of the first times I peeked behind the curtain to see what was going on beyond the everyday world of things.
A friend introduced me to the classic book “Be Here Now” by Ram Dass. It was a conglomeration of interesting thoughts, musings, poetry, quotes and pictures, and I LOVED it. Thing is, I had NO idea what any of it meant. But the vibration of the book spoke to me, and I knew it wouldn’t unless there was something important for me to learn from it. I said out loud many times that I had no idea what it was about but I certainly wanted to. About 15 years after I was introduced to it, I read it again and smiled, realizing that the understanding I asked for had finally come.
As a result of my conscious intent, life had brought me experiences through which to grow and understand presence in a way I might not have otherwise. I had become present as a spiritual being having a human experience, and not the other way around.. and I had realized that while the bright shiny objects of material life can be amplifiers of joy, they were never designed to be the source of it.
I also learned that all transformation begins with the desire to experience it and then "stepping through the flames" to allow the old self to fall away, as Ram Dass states in his awesome book.
Sometimes we transmit that desire to our lives by our conscious asking. But other times, we ask at a more subtle level by acknowledging patterns of confusion, “stuckness” or negativity and then focusing on what it takes to change them. That focus takes as little as just one thought towards finding our clarity and peacefulness and following through on the guidance that comes. It's as easy as saying, “I don’t know exactly how to get there yet… but I certainly want to!”, and watch the way appear before your very eyes.
I don’t usually make a big deal about my birthday… BUT… this year I'm asking you for just one thing. I'd like for you to take just one moment now to feel into your life and BE HERE NOW with it in a few quick steps...
1. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, hold your hand to your heart and see if you can find the one thing you struggle with understanding most right now.
2. Invite clarity to come in and bring you peace. Life will have no choice but to bring it to you from this moment forth.
3. Allow it in and enjoy the journey back towards your true presence.
I have a theory you see… and that is, peaceful individuals create a peaceful world. So if we work together, maybe my birthday wish will come true after all!
Want to find your way to this clarity but not quite sure how? It wouldn’t be fair if I invited you into this journey and didn’t offer to help…
