One Way To Find Peace and Joy In Your Life

Sep 17, 2008
Recently I listened to one of Wayne Dyer tapes and he made me realise how we spend most of our lives cursing what we have, judging others and always longing for things in the distance. If only we could shift our attitude and choose to embrace instead of curse.

Take time today to appreciate everything that is around you today. The plants you see, the air you breathe, the moon, the sun and the people around you. Everything is there for a purpose and everything around you makes you who you are.

Imagine inhabiting this world alone, without the moon, without the animals, without other people. Would that be an inhabitable world? Of course not. Even though we may not directly see how we are related to a stranger, just know that we are. We all emanate from the same Source, and are part of one thing.

Many of us have bought into the habit of cursing everything. We curse the weather. Make the choice to love everything, and appreciate even the weather, because without variations in weather conditions we would not be able to know the difference.

Imagine if it was sunny at all the time, you would not even know the possibility of rain. So accept the world as it is, variety is the inherent nature of the universe. If you happen to hate difference, then you will always be frustrated because difference is the intrinsic nature of the world we inhabit. Accept that we are all different, look different, dress differently, eat differently and talk differently.

So instead of being so wrapped with ourselves, let us radiate love to the world. If we decide to, we can indeed drop the habit of constantly judging, cursing, winging and mourning and fill our hearts with love. When we curse the weather, or anything for that matter, we are causing ourselves unnecessary stress.

For no apparent reason, we are making the choice to anger ourselves just because it is a rainy day and you wanted it to be sunny. In any moment, we have the choice to love or to hate, to stress ourselves or to be at peace.

The world we inhabit is so filled with many beautiful things, many beautiful people, numerous beautiful places and we have every reason to love it. How do we love the world then you might ask? Through the simple act of sending out thoughts of love to a stranger, appreciating the trees around us and appreciating the difference in others. As per the law of cause and effect, what we send out we will get back multiplied. So the more we love the world in its diversity, in its variety, the more the world will love us back and vice versa.

There is certainly nothing to be lost by sending out thoughts of love because when our minds are in a state of loving we immediately feel good and happy. If your mind is full of hate for others, you yourself cannot find happiness. You feel frustrated and angry and your mind is preoccupied by a heavy load of negative emotion. For sure, this is not a sweet place to be in any case.

The negativity can however quickly dissolve when we simply make the choice to love everything and everyone. Thus love sets us free, it gives us peace of mind and joy. And when we are emotionally at peace, our bodies are functioning at their optimum. Every cell within us feels peace and everything within us functions harmoniously. The contrary happens when we choose to hate.

Choose to be full of love always, and you will bring harmony into your body, your life and the world around you too.
