PEACE: Go toward the light

Filed under Extra, Peace

Light is a metaphor for many things in life. Some liken its warmth to the warmth of love. It can represent positivity that brings about the good things and the light from one’s smile. But, unfortunately, darkness still finds us — either by way of circumstance, or cloaked in disguises that usher negativity into our […]

PEACE: Unmoved by disloyalty

Each day is a blessing. The beginning of spring reminds us of all the wonders of the world. Nature shows that not one thing is identical and all has a unique color, design or growth to it.  However, certain things occur in life that cause us to ask, “Where is the loyalty?” Your response to […]

PEACE: I’m Good

Life brings good times and bad ones. The phrase “I’m good” is an affirmation that we tell ourselves and others when anything tries to knock us off the path to infinite peace. The ultimate defense in this crazy world is the silent voice within that says, “I’m good.” We have to be there for ourselves to reduce the turmoil in our hearts and […]

PEACE: Resilience in silence

There are moments when we have to turn inward in order to find the solace needed to see our way through life events. Life will try to swallow you up with noise, but the silence within can really be your protector — and it can create the resilience you need to overcome challenges of the […]

PEACE: Boom! It’s a New Year

  The excitement is in the air each time a new year is upon us. But there is also lingering anxiety about the unknown. We may try to plan out our year, days and hours — but no one really knows what each day will bring. We have faith that our days will be bright and that it will be good. The […]

PEACE: Living life with purpose

  The phrase “we grow” is often said without intention. It is almost as if life is revolving around you, instead of you evolving around life and circumstance. So many things that occur in the world around you result in turning off senses in order to stay focused — or to just survive. We awaken when the expectations of our desires are manifested. The […]

PEACE: Submit to love

  “I walk in love. I talk in love, and I submit my life to love.” Yes, these oaths of love are filling holes in our lives. Sometimes, chaos seems to be so far away until it comes knocking on your door. The practice of love is something we must discipline our minds to submit to. It is so easy to join […]

PEACE: When there seems to be none …

  A chieving peace is often an abstract desire. It is sometimes taken for granted — because you can’t touch it like a physical object that sits on your coffee table waiting to be picked up when you need it. But we all know that it is real, because you can feel it; it may be in spurts, but it can be […]

PEACE: Hold on to Faith

  I have often asked myself, “How do I find peace when there is no peace?” Many of us find the peace we seek by going to church or simply connecting with the higher power through prayer and the study of scripture. But when surrounded by obstacles in day-to-day life, it is sometimes very hard to reclaim our “in motion” peace. The peace […]

PEACE: Your Best Self

  Many of us are our own worst critics. We examine ourselves from the reflection of expectations that surround us. Judging personal excellence against an imaginary status quo is a false measurement that cannot fulfill your eternal soul — the soul that breaks through the barriers of restraint for our own truth to be revealed. The courageous soul is one that possesses the self-confidence […]
