Aligned with peace in thought and word and deed, I align with my true self. Placing faith in my true self, I radiate peace.
My awakening thoughts reflect the disquiet of my mind. “I wonder if there will be a new atrocity to learn about this morning?” leaps into my thinking as I awaken.
I fear for the world’s condition. For humanity’s sake. For the safety and well-being of all I love.
I fear unseen, unknown faces stalking the night. I fear unseen, unknown hands plotting, somewhere in the world, discord, pain, grief, terror.
I must choose love over fear.
I must not allow fear to dictate my actions. I must not let fear consume my being present in this world of wonder and awe.
I breathe. Deeply. And acknowledge what is true.
Fear is present.
So is love. So is joy. So is possibility. So is community. So is hope. So is peace.
Fear is present. I embrace my fear with loving kindness. I embrace it with compassion. Hope. Belief in all humanity. Belief in the goodness of all humankind.
I embrace my fear and set myself free of its dark tentacles seeking tenure in my thoughts.
I breathe love into my fear and dispel the clouds of its desire to unsettle my belief in all I am capable of, all I am when I let go of fear and choose love.
I cannot find peace by staying at the level of my discord. I must seek peace at the level of the solution.
I choose Love over fear. Always.
And in that choice I find myself breathing deeply into my belief that when align through peace within me and have faith in my true self, I am the peace I want to create in the world around me.
Aligned with my true self, peace finds its way through Love.
And so it is.
