I have been experiencing a difficult time for a couple of months. There were moments when I lost my inner peace but only to claim it back. The path of peace is very interesting, as you walk on it there is no guarantee that you will only encounter peaceful events. But the good news is that God will always provide you with options, insights, thoughts and sometimes people that will help you protect your peace. All you need is the right focus.
Yes, the right focus! Focus on your belief system, faith, inner strengths, external resources, the bigger picture and the greater good. Life is not all about the problem you are in right now, it is much bigger than that. It is important to take appropriate action to resolve the situation but the action will be effective only if you can see beyond the problem. It is important to visualize the desired future and focus on it.
It can be hard but it is doable. All it takes is a bit of flexibility, ability to look beyond the problem and a broad vision for success. Develop a strategy to get beyond what troubles you to what will comfort you and your dear ones without harming anybody else and you will be well on your path of peace! Remember, not to loose the focus! :-)
The best part is that when you walk on the path of peace, even in middle of difficulties, God sends you his angels. No kidding… I meet them all the time and they come in all packages regardless of their religion, gender, color, race or ethnicity. They just don't wear the white garb or wings but they do have lovely smiles, truth in their eyes and warm hugs! Focus on them rather than complaining about those who do not possess these characteristics… remember, 'right focus'!
Well, friends, I am walking on my path of peace and looking beyond the challenges. I am thankful to God for this long night because through His grace I am able to see the shining stars that reflect the light of the sun that will soon emerge!
