About Peace:  Can This Be True?


The Tao Te Ching tells us that "When there is no desire...all things are at peace."

Can this be true?


Our modern world is challenged greatly by such a statement and you may find yourself challenged by it too!


But read on...



We get so caught up in the frantic activity of our daily lives that we forget to ask the real questions.


Such as:


 Why are we here...here on this planet Earth...in this physical existence?


We are here to learn how to express love and goodness.


That is all. 


The rest are just the props and stage for us to learn.


Love is expressed in the organic world in right relationship. 

The "soul" purpose of our existence is to learn right relationship with ourselves, with all beings and with all things. 


Right relationship is the ability to relate from a place of virtue, integrity, and loving compassion

with a harmonic balance between ourselves and what we are relating to.


God is Love...and we are God's means of expressing Itself.




The underlying challenge I see in human nature is the letting go of desire states

for things to be different from what they really are.


These desire states are always based on a fear of loss of some kind. 

This fear of loss causes one to set up (in the mind) an "ideal" of what is acceptable...a state of perfectionism.

Then we color our world through the lenses of this ideal, seeing things according to our ideal

rather than seeing them exactly as they are.




When we interact with another person through perceptions created by our desire states,

the relationship becomes distorted.  The relationship may seem to go along fine for a time...

until one day when the other person does something that no longer fits our "ideal". 


Then suddenly our perception changes to one of betrayal by this person,

when actually it is our own desire state that has betrayed us!


It was all there from the beginning.  We just chose to perceive through the lens of our  "ideal".


At this point the desire state becomes even stronger, taking on another form...


FEAR.


You see, fear is the flip-side of desire...

Desire for something to be a certain way...fear that it won't be!


Another word for this dilemma

is PASSION.


Unfortunately worldly values are based on these very desires and passions

and thus beget a world of fear and frantic energy rather than

the quiet calm found in the mind, body and spirit

of one who is free from such illusions.


That one would be called...a Sage.



Desire, Fear, and Passion are all emotional states which have nothing to do with the Truth.



We desire for things to be a certain way because there is an underlying belief

that if we get our desire, it will bring us peace.


But true peace can never be found based on something external. 

It is only by giving up desire states that we can ever find true peace.



Exercise:


Stop for a moment and think of something in your life you have a strong desire for.

Now, take yourself to a place of acceptance that this desire can never be...and you must let it go.

At this place you will experience the fear attached to the flip side of this perception.


Yet neither the desire or the fear have anything to do with reality as it is in this moment!



It is only by giving up these desire states that we will ever find true stillness...

And it is only from inner stillness that one can see things exactly as they are.


In order to respond appropriately to any situation,

one must be able to see things exactly as they are without any illusion.


In order to make real change in our lives, we must first put away the desires and fears. 

When we are able to see the actual reality of our situation,

then we will have the opportunity to meet it with the appropriate response.


The clouds of confusion are always caused by the desire and fear states that distort the truth.


Clarity comes when the mind is calm and still...



"When there is no desire, all things are at peace." 

Tao Te Ching (Stephen Mitchell Translation)


If you want to know for yourself that this is true,

free yourself of the passions of desire and fear...


Only then can you experience the quiet light of inner stillness

and the calm clarity that abides there.




The following will be our Affirmation Prayer.


Find some quiet time to create inner “sacred space” for yourself.     

Soft music can help…Breath of Angels perhaps, if you already have it. 


Calm your mind, relax your body, and connect your being to God as you understand it.


I encourage you to daily read this slowly, speaking it out loud if you can. 

Allow spaces of silence between each phrase of affirmation, accepting with

humility and faith that the word you speak is taking place now.


 


BE STILL


Be still and know...


In the quiet light of stillness...I Am


With every breath I take...with every beat of my heart...


The presence of God animates my being.


As I sit quietly, I allow the concerns of the world to fall away with each exhalation.

(Pause...Breath in...let it out slowly)

If there is any resistance to the Truth, I let it go now...with each breath.


Breathing slowly and deeply, I put my attention on this breath of life within me...

letting go, letting go, letting go...

so that I can just

BE...


I see a tiny flame in my heart center and I know...I Am That I Am


My mind is the mind of God.


The Truth of my spirit...of my being

is the wholeness of God.

I know myself as whole and complete now.


(Pause...Breath in...let it out slowly)


I,  (your name), am God expressing Itself as me!

Being whole and complete, I have no desire here...I have no fear.

The passions are silenced as I affirm I am the consciousness of acceptance.


I willingly receive the Truth now.


I am the consciousness of crystal clarity...

and I abide in the calm quiet stillness of "what is".


From this place I know the Truth and I accept this Truth without resistance.


I know all that I need to know.


I allow the experience of this moment to take root on the deepest levels of my being.

The threads of this Light Consciousness are weaving themselves together as a

new level of awareness that now begins to crystalize in my reality.


The tiny flame that I see in my heart is from this moment on...always present.

All I have to do is turn my attention to it and I will remember who I Am.


I Am That I Am


It is so!


Amen.

This Issue's Featured Song:


          


From THE FARMERS DAUGHTER 



This song will be available for listening until the next newsletter issue (approx. April 1, 2007)


Click here to view lyrics to "When It's All Said and Done"


I chose "When It's All Said and Done" as the featured song because it carries a teaching within the lyrics that follows the theme of this newsletter.  (Think of it as akin to the ancient bards and their use of story and song to share their message and teachings.)

 

The death of my father put me on a journey within myself to a deeply personal place of reflection about my roots and about the relationships I had created throughout my life.  It was a time of deep healing...a time of forgiveness, letting go and of embracing and accepting the grief and loss I was experiencing.  It was a time of looking at all the places I had held on to anything that was not in alignment with the cosmic order for my life.

 

This song begins by speaking to the story of those personal relationships that fail because we are attached to an "ideal".  Then the scope of the song broadens to the souls journey to the Truth.

 

You will recognize a somewhat different style to the music of The Farmers Daughter album.  It was an intensely healing journey for me personally.
