RISING ABOVE THE FRAY

“I will rest in God today.”

It is time to take our power back.  When we feel unhappy, resentful or our peace is lacking in any form, the first instinct of the ego is to project these feelings on to someone or something else.  I am afraid or angry or sad because of the economy, what I’m hearing on the news, what my parents, wife, husband, partner, sister, co-worker, friend said or did to me.  True we cannot control the news, the economy or the behavior and words of others, but we can empower ourselves by understanding that it is not these things that disturb our peace, but how we choose to see them. 

It is important that we ask God to show us how to be at peace even in the face of everything that is happening around us and to us.  It is this peace, this alignment with the Divine within us, that will bring all correction into our experience and into our line of vision.  We can’t seek peace to change the world, but we can and must seek peace for its own sake. 

The corrections in our world will fall into place when we want peace with no expectations of how that should happen.  This means to simply allow the world to do and be what it is.  Allow the people in our lives to learn their lessons as they feel they must without our interference. Or if there is an immediate danger to ourselves or someone else, ask God to show us how to be helpful.  “Help me, God,” is the quickest prayer. It’s like dialing 911 from the highest place within us.

In this way we take ourselves out of the fray.  Now are we allowing ourselves to be lifted above the insanity and into sanity. Our prayer is “Show me how to be at peace here.”  

Let’s rest in Him as we walk quietly in perfect Holiness through the noisy nonsense of the world.
