ATTITUDINAL HEALING PRINCIPLE 8: We Can Be Peaceful Regardless of What Is Happening

Today we learn how to remain peaceful inside, no matter what is going on in your life.

Despite the chaos in our lives, we can choose to be peaceful, knowing that we are connected and sustained by our loving, peaceful Source.

In my recent blogs, I’ve summarized the first five Attitudinal Healing principles:

If we wish to choose inner peace as our single goal, then we can realize that we need not be triggered by our external world, which is a different belief system than we are used to.

We all know how the world defends righteous anger and how it supports us to hang onto it. We can do what the world supports, or we can take responsibility for our own feelings, go inside, and choose to get rid of our anger, guilt, and judgments.

We are not robots. A robot is run by the outside world. Its buttons are pushed and it is programmed to do whatever someone wants it to do. We do not have to perform like a robot. We are free to do, to feel, and to act in a way that can give us the most peace.

In essence, we can realize that no one is really able to “make” us feel happy, sad, lonely, or angry. We often feel this is the case when we say, “if only my spouse would act this way or that way, I would be happier.”

To try to change the way the other person behaves is manipulation and control, and in the long run simply won’t work.

The truth is that we can all use these situations as a practice to work on ourselves. We can, at this time, go inside and see how we can change our perceptions of what is going on to make us more peaceful.

We can never change another person; we can only change ourselves. This takes awareness and willingness to keep monitoring our feelings so that we can recognize, acknowledge, and actively choose to alter them. It takes presence and courage to keep reflecting so that we can begin to change–to become peaceful.
