One of the first steps to peace is to choose to be happy instead of right. Whenever we want to be right over someone else we always get in trouble. Needing to have others think the way we do is a huge mistake for most of us. And as you can see this flaw runs rampant throughout the world and is the cause of most of the world’s problems.

So then we need to ask ourselves, why is it so important for others to agree with me?  Why is it so important that they think highly of me?  If we could change our thoughts and remember it is only important that we are true to ourselves and God, life would be much easier for us.  We’re never going to find peace by depending upon the good opinions of others.  Everyone has a different perspective depending upon their life experiences and how they perceive us and themselves and even what they may be going through in a given moment.  No one will ever always agree with us or we with them.  And that doesn’t matter.  It really doesn’t matter.  If we always make the effort to come from a place of love and forgiveness in our dealings with others, then no matter how they react to us, we will always be right.  Not in the world’s understanding of right, but in the sense that we have aligned our thoughts with God and so everything we think and do is now loving and kind and helpful and harmless. 

Does one rainbow care what another rainbow thinks of it?  Does the sun expect the moon to agree with it?  Does a flower bloom for the purpose of impressing other flowers?  Does a cat, a fish, a dragonfly, a hummingbird live for the good opinions of others? Only humans have the attribute of needing to be right.  Needing to control their world. 

Instead of being right, what if we just be?  Let’s practice shining in the light of our own being and let everything else go  God stands with us and shines His light with ours and now there is no need for anything, but to rest in Him and let His Rightness guide us in all things. Now does all need to control and be right fall away.  Now is every rainbow beautiful in its own way, every flower a joy and the sun and the moon and the dragonfly each share the Universe as they were intended.

When someone disagrees with us, let us silently bless them and allow them to shine in their own light while we shine in ours. And since light cannot be stopped, it won’t be long before our light joins with theirs and God’s and all is Light.

Let’s just be.  Be grateful.  Be kind. Be happy.  Be peaceful.  Be joyous.  Be forgiving.  Be helpful.  BE. 

May you walk in peace today knowing you are blessed and a blessing in the world.
