we come from our largest self, we are able to align with peace. As we
learn to embrace being our largest self, we become peace. From here we
generate peace and offer it out into the world. This is part of the
path of enlightenment: to live a life of joy and expansion here now.
our largest self involves opening as a mind to the possibility that we
are more than our minds. It also involves aligning with Soul qualities
such as peace, love, compassion and generosity.
Often, as we go
through life we exist in a state of reaction. Something occurs and
with very little conscious effort, we respond. We respond from our
history, from what this particular action has meant in the past or
what it reminds us of now. Although part of the path of being a human
being, coming from our past is not the expression of who we are in the
largest sense of the word.
But how do we choose expansion and live and generate peace, no matter what?
part this arises through intention. Choosing peace is a powerful
choice, one that opens the doorway to never ending possibilities. When
we choose peace we are saying to the Universe, “I remember who I am and
I offer myself to the world.” We are saying we desire to be our
largeness and not deny the past, but not live from there either.
we do this, we step outside the limitations of the past. We are able to
see possibilities. We align with our unlimited potential. From here, we
open to being fed by our Soul. We open to the partnership of that
presence and when we are ready, we allow what is guiding us from within
to step forward.
Living a life of expansion occurs one choice
at a time. Each choice enhances expansion or furthers constriction. No
matter what is unfolding around us, a busy office, crying children,
hectic holiday activities, we are experiencing a choice. The only
choice evident to our minds may be, “how do I respond from my expansion
now?” It may be that simply hearing the choice is the first step from
disconnecting from past habituated patterns of response. This may be
the biggest change in a single moment, to remember that we have choice.
To pause from the events that are unfolding around us and with our
next breath, ask the question, “What do I choose here now?”
we choose in this way, we are stopping the repetitive stories of our
minds about all the reasons why something must be a certain way. We are
allowing the personality to breathe and remember that there is more.
This is key to no longer repeating the past. It is also key to reaching
our fullest potential in any given situation.
To help strengthen your ability to respond and create from your largeness and Soul, try these three simple steps:
each day in quiet meditation with your Soul. It does not matter if you
hear or feel your Soul in some way. Trust its presence and commitment
in your life. As you align here, allow your mind to quiet and your heart
to open to the influence of your Soul. In this way your expansion feeds
the parts of you that do not yet know how to choose peace, no matter
time out from the busy pace of life to reconnect with your Soul. If you
are about to engage in an activity that is historically challenging,
take those few moments for connection before you begin. If you find you
are already deep within the event or activity and have noticed your
history repeating and the presence of not peace, step back, take a
breath and reconnect.
to practice the exercise of gaining clarity. Ask yourself, "what do I
know to be true right now?" Distill what is transpiring down to the
smallest particle of consciousness. From here even things that looked
completely overwhelming a moment ago are now evident as simple choices.
we come from expansion, we expect to be supported. We open to the
possibilities of life being different in the moment that is occurring,
and we transcend our past. We choose peace, we align with our largeness
and we offer this out into the world.
For those interested in creating life as the expansion of the Soul, we suggest Deepening Connection: A bridge to Soul mate Relationships.
