Personal peace is a choice.
Yes, there's much conflict in the world today and there always has been. Right now, people are concerned and even frightened about where world events could be leading, especially in the USA. With any change and state of newness there is fear and it's valid. Some people are feeling sad and angry while others are feeling elated and happy.
So in the light of the USA election result, who's right and who's wrong? Why are some so sad and some so happy?
It all comes down to what we each believe despite any and all evidence to the contrary.
You can strongly dislike something or someone without losing your personal peace. There will never be a time in our world, or the world at large, where everything continually goes according to our likes and plans. That's just not possible. There will always be much we don't agree with.
What is possible however, is to practice bringing peace and calmness to your own life each and every day. This is possible, but you'll need to let go of hatred and judgement and you'll need to stop making up stories of what you think might happen in the future.
Right now, in this moment, if you're reading this message, you're ok. Most likely you have a home, food and clean water, clothing, a source of income and a person (or several people) who cares about you and your well-being. You might even be fortunate enough to enjoy the unconditional adoration of your dog or cat!
You can spend your time and energy fearful and raging over events beyond your control or, you can choose to focus on how you can bring about more serenity and joy to your life and the lives of those you interact with daily.
Operating from a grounded place of love and calmness is more powerful than operating from the chaos and insanity of hatred and (out of control) anger and you'll positively influence far more people with loving kindness than you will with harsh criticism and violent behaviour.
Which will you choose?
Choose peace and Every Day Gets Better.
