It has arrived, with perfect timing, our January 1, 2016.
Don’t you love having a new start?
One of the things you might enjoy about 2016 is having more peace.
The Opposite of Drama in Your 2016
Funny thing about peace. It doesn’t clobber you over the head. Peace is something gentle that you can find.
You can find it today. You can find some of it right now. Human-type peace.
Elephants aren’t generally considered symbols of peace. Doves are. Well, compare the relative drama of doves versus elephants:
- The lightness of movement
- The speed of travel
- The softness of sound
For an animal here at Earth School, doves are pretty darned subtle. Peace is too.
Yet for all its gentleness, peace can actively be encouraged… in very human ways. This Enlightenment Coach think that’s worth noting. Don’t you?
A human-type peace is available to us at Earth School as we live here in our funny little animal-style bodies.
The Signature of the Divine, Peace Is Tucked into Human life.
Gladys, a sweet buddy of mine, sent an end-of-year email where she predicted that there would be struggles in the year ahead. Warning me, she cautioned that in 2015 she “had to” lift her vibrations many, many times every day so that she would avoid falling into negativity. In 2016, this sort of thing would have to be done even more. (Gladys thought.)
It’s a pretty sure bet: Life on earth may contain drama galore in 2016. So what’s new?
Another pretty sure bet: By doing Technique Time, off and on, all day long, guess what? Gladys has been lifting herself right into spiritual addiction.
There’s a better way. In fact I can think of three of them, effortless and gentle ways that you can find peace. And not one of these involves reaching up into astral vibrational frequencies.
Three Ways to Find Peace Whenever You Like
Each of these ways can work for you, but one or two may be more of a favorite. That’s okay, all you need is one.
Whichever of these methods you choose, do it quickly and gently. Like the blink of an eye. Then move on.
#1. Listen for the Silence
Silence is always there. Between the words. Between the sentences. Between the musical phrases.
That silence is the pure voice of God, a.k.a. Peace: Concentrated and still, yet also flowing.
Of course silence will not sound dramatically weird to you. All along you have been made of that.
Don’t try to hear a different kind of silence than what is normal for you. Same with the degree of peacefulness you feel, which might be quite subtle.
Ten tiny moments of peace in your day will accumulate into a more recognizable peace, a steadiness always available to you.
#2. Look for Empty Space
Between people and other physical objects, there is space. Plenty is available right where you are right now, see that?
Usually we emphasize the objects, but for your occasional dip into peace, do this. Shift your customary figure-ground relationship. And let the empty space be what you notice.
There’s a tranquility in that, a repose.
For less than a second, you can rock and rest in that visual peace as though reclining in a hammock on a beautiful summer’s day.
#3. Very Temporarily, Get out of Touch
Usually those busy fingers of yours are doing important things. Such as feeling textures.
Of course, you could use your feet. Or any of the skin on your body. You have such an ample sense of touch; it allows you to actively explore any texture around you.
Actually that texture might be quite sumptuous — animal or vegetable or mineral.
For an instant bit of fun, you can always reach out and touch something: The superfine smoothness of silk; the feathery softness of a dove; that familiar, character-delicious, rumpled skin of your pet elephant. Whatever.
When you seek the peace part, though, do the opposite. Be interested in the no-touch aspect of the figure-ground gestalt. In the instant right after touching something, pause for a moment.
There it is. Peace and (sensory) quiet and soulful balance.
Peace Can Be Easy to Find
Just accept it for what it is. Not seeking something grander, more mystical, more dramatic, or as if a space alien must arrive to teach you how to really live your human life.
Ordinary human life. Human peace. The basis of human fulfillment. Also the basis of Enlightenment.
Finding peace on demand can be part of your personal path.
And for any type of personal development you might choose — such as any of the skills with RES (Rosetree Energy Spirituality) — you’ll be more resourceful for knowing that you can always find peace.
Whatever else does or doesn’t happen for you in 2016, you can always find peace.
