“A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.” -Henry David Thoreau
Our true nature is peace and love. That is why it feels like coming home to look upon a peaceful lake, calm, undisturbed by anything around it. To compare our existence in its raw form to something so simple shows the very nature of God. Everything we see in the world around us is a reflection of our beingness. The opposite of this lake of peace is the chaos and turmoil, or the contrast which we have come here to learn from. Too often we “throw shade” on the contrast, making it look like the bad guy. However, the contrast is just there. It has no feelings and is not interested in whether you love or hate on it. When we chose to come to earth, we knew what we would encounter yet we did it anyway because it was an opportunity for soul growth and expansion.
Dear Angels, we didn’t come here to sit in a lounge chair by the peaceful lakes and mountains. Every experience we have in this earthly existence is about evolution. Every winter storm of our life, every insecurity and earthquake energy is to help us understand peace and pure love. They are not there to punish us or keep us tied down in a mundane existence. How do we bring ourselves to that good peaceful place in the midst of the storms?
Dear Ones, every moment you are in your human body is steered by the choices you make. You open your eyes after your sleep time and choose what to do next. You always have a choice. Do you start with gratitude, or do you start with dread and no sense of purpose? You start with that clean slate every day. No one can tell you how to feel – that is on you. no one can force a smile on your face. And no one can make you feel anger, shame, blame, guilt or upset. However you choose to be at any given moment in your day is totally up to you. Those first seconds upon awakening are important as you are still in a state of nonresistance. You can choose in that moment to be happy. You can choose to make it the best day possible. Your brain will not argue with you. your subconscious mind will take that thought and run with it. It is your golden opportunity to turn your day into one filled with sunshine and positivity, no matter what. If you are serious about wanting peace and joy in your life, Dear Ones, this is the key to having it.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to start each day with gratitude and standing in my Divine authenticity by the lake of peace.
