The Beloved Teacher, says:
“You souls are embodiments of peace…
Each one of you, souls is like a sparkling star.
You dwell within and your strength is peace and silence”.
This may sound like a mysterious koan in this day and age when young and old alike experience more of anxiety, depression, overwhelm, and uncertainty than peace, tranquility, and serenity.
Where’s the PEACE???
Peace resides within every soul; it is our original natural nature.
The soul is experienced and known in moments of silence when one turns within, withdraws and detaches from the cares, attractions, and distractions of the world and the influences upon the body. This detachment is of the consciousness of the body as you slip into the peaceful consciousness of the soul.
There’s a Sanskrit/Hindi word for this: ANTERMUKI which means: To Face INWARDS. This prepares the soul to feel its own inner state of peace.
As one practices turning within, with the true, determined thought that I AM A PEACEFUL SOUL…the experience of peace becomes palpable and it is possible to stabilize in peace and even spread vibrations of peace while actively engaged in physical activity.
This is a lovely state of awareness.
To begin the process of INWARD FACING…allow yourself 5 to 10 minutes in the morning when you first rise to contemplate upon PEACE- what you think about a lot, you become!
Experiement with this.
PEACE STAR EXERCISE
For ‘children of all ages’
One way to be peaceful is to turn inside.
practice this by thinking about the stars far above the earth.
Imagine yourself to be just like a star, shining and sparkling in the center of your forehead.
A star shines quietly.
A star is so quiet and peaceful.
As your thoughts are focused on shining like a star…let your body be still…
relax your toes and legs…relax your stomach…and shoulders…
relax your arms.. your face…your neck
All of your energy is focused on being a star…
What color of peace do you shine with today?
Perhaps with a rose color that has the feeling of being safe and loved…
Or with a blue color that shines with the light of peace and courage…
Whenever you wish to feel peaceful inside, you can become very still and quiet inside by remembering this experience of being light, a star of peace, a point of sparkling light shining brightly.
You are a light.
Your thoughts are powerful and carry a vibration that can be felt.
You are an embodiment of peace, a peaceful soul.
This is your natural state.
