Achieving Peace

Title: Something's missing
Media: Mixed media, resin and acrylic on canvas
Peace starts from within - we cannot hope to achieve worldwide peace without first becoming at one with ourselves. Once we are at peace within - then we can spread it outward - to the people around us, our community , country and the world. Peace starts with the individual and flows from there .... we need to ask ourselves What are we doing today to be at peace within and create a harmonious existence ....

Learn to practice self love through self compassion and self nurturing. This will lead to building a foundation of inner security allowing you to remain calm and serene.

You are human and will make mistakes. Practice not judging yourself and release your resentments you hold against yourself for making a mistake.

Learn to forgive others when you are holding onto judgments resulting in grudges and resentments. This will only lead to disharmony within you. To get inner peace, you must learn to forgive and forget.

The most difficult aspect of honesty is to be honest with you. If you can't be honest with yourself, then it is impossible to be honest with others. When you can be true to yourself, this is one of the greatest gifts you can give yours towards obtaining true inner peace.

You are more than your physical body

Your core is your divine essence or your spirit. It deserves peace, true inner peace.

Practice thinking positively. Look for the good in every situation and every person. Practice positive actions that result in receiving positive feed back.

In every situation practice looking at it from an outside observer taking neither side. This will open your awareness up giving you more choices in life.

Remember life is a journey, it is not a destination. A journey that will allow you to learn and grow in self awareness if you allow it that will bring true inner peace.

Practice these simple suggestions on a daily basis to become full of greater inner peace and quiet serenity.

Bright blessings,
