Peace: It’s Always A Choice

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. – Isaiah 11:6

Change and become like little children…  –  Matthew 18:3

Rewrite your definitions of how people should be together.

Rewrite your belief about having to be right.

Change the programming you grew up with, the programming in our culture.

When we do, we can release the knot in our belly, the tightness in our chest, the fear in our mind of running into someone.

Choose kindness — it’s so relaxing!  Kindness to ourselves first will create a light in us, a lightness of heart, a lightness of belly and chest and beliefs.

We can rewrite our story of who we are.  It’s fully in our own power.  It’s what we can choose to be, in our belly, in our heart, in our private, secret image of ourselves.

We can choose to change from expecting trouble, to expecting welcoming.  When we do this, watch how people change toward us!  They’re getting their cue about how to treat us by the relaxed energy we radiate from us to them.

We change from being on the defensive, to being on the edge of happy laughter.  We can choose to see life as play.

We can believe that the Universe is on our side, has our back, and is keeping us safe.  We can choose to dance and sing in our hearts and minds.

Change and become like little children — who live to play, who live to dance and sing in their hearts and minds and bodies.

Do we deserve less?  Never!

Peace can be our choice.  Every season, every day, every moment.  Beauty, love, kindness, caring, compassion — for ourselves first, then we will have all that loveliness to give to others.
