A Peaceful Heart

“Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

These days I live with more inner peace than I have ever thought possible. I used to run and rush toward all the destinations of my life. I wanted to just get to each finish line and then get off to the next race. But after fifty years of living, I can clearly see that it isn’t getting to my destinations that brings all the good stuff to me. It is the steps along the way that add to my experience, my life and my joy of it all. 

I still have my moments, but now I can quickly recognize when I am trying to run too fast. So I have intentionally slowed my pace down. I still have a lot to do each day, but I conduct my days with more ease, with more smiles and laughter. Even though I have always been a pretty joyful dude, now I have joy with a peaceful heart. And boy does it feel wholesome, complete, perfect and wonderful. I am lacking nothing. I have always been what I set out to be. 

I know that everything works out. I know who I am. And I know that no matter what others may think or do, its ok. I’m ok. Nobody can’t fuck up my groove. I have to do that. And I won’t because I know too much now. I know that I am free. I know that I am my own love. And I know that I am my own joy. I am my own way, truth and light. 

In the wonderful words of Louise Hay: “No person, no place, and no thing has any power over us, for ‘we’ are the only thinkers in our mind. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.” —Louise L. Hay

Find your peace inside and I promise that all your dreams will come true in an instant! Mine have. I may still be waiting on the consequences of my dreams, but I feel the emotional content of them already! Thank you universe, thank you to me. 

I am love. I am joy. I am so very very good. And so are each one of you. There is so much love out there for us all, be brave enough to look for it always and you will find it. I promise.
