Eventually We All Find Our Way Home To The Peace In Our Heart

Sometimes, in our journey through life, we get a little lost.

We went right instead of left, and now we can’t find our way.

We end up in unfamiliar territory, and it scares us.

Yet if we trust and continue on our path, we always find our way home.

We find our way back to that safe place.

We find our way back to our community.

We find our way back to our hearts.

It is not always easy.

Often, the way back is fraught with peril.

There are monsters and frightening beasts along the way.

Many of those shadows are just the dark impressions that linger from our childhood.

Some of them are phantoms we’ve accumulated throughout our lives.

All of them are places within ourselves that we didn’t feel safe.

Perhaps were there was a huge loss.

Or where our essential needs were not met.

And still there is always a path that leads back home.

There is a light inside that guides us.

That pulls us forward.

That reminds us there is a way out of the darkness.

Sometimes we find it quickly.

Sometimes it takes a long time.

In the end, we all find our way home, even if it doesn’t seem like it to others.

Yet we know we’ve found it.

It is that place where there is peace in our hearts.

Feeling Safe Is Essential For Us To Heal, Grow, And Be Authentic

Feeling safe is more important than we think.

Feeling safe is about more than our environment.

Feeling safe involved more than just the people we’re surrounded by.

Feeling safe is essential for us to heal, grow, and be authentic.

As human beings we get traumatized by many things.

Our nervous systems respond to all sorts of stimuli.

Someone yelling at us on the phone can be traumatic and make us feel unsafe.

A person’s energy when they walk into the elevator with us can make us feel unsafe.

A dark and deserted place can make use feel unsafe as well.

What triggers one person may not be what triggers someone else.

As individuals, we all come to life with different associations and different experiences.

Do we really know when we make someone else feel unsafe?

Are we aware of what we do for others that does make them feel safe?

Without feeling safe we cannot relax.

Without feeling safe we cannot allow ourselves to show how we really feel inside.

Without feeling safe we cannot begin or engage in any kind of healing.

What we often overlook is that we first have to feel safe with ourselves, before we can feel safe with anyone else.

Sometimes, we don’t even consider what situations we need to be in to feel safe.

Do we feel safe with our families?

Do we feel safe with our friends?

Do we feel safe in our work environment?

What is the solution when we don’t feel safe?

Change where we are. Change who we are with. Change what we are experiencing.

When we find a moment’s peace, then we can begin to analyze what we need to feel safe.

When we are alone, and present to ourselves, then we can feel our bodies and see where there is tension or concern.

Knowing what we need to feel safe is important for us to create safety for others.

If we all keep in mind what it means to feel safe and to how to create safety around us, perhaps we can create a safer world.

Trusting In Life Is About Believing In Ourselves

How deeply do we trust?

How well do we deal with the unknown?

How much change can we experience and still thrive?

Trust is not about blind faith.

Trust is about believing that ultimately the universe is compassionate.

Trust is about believing in ourselves and our abilities.

Trust is about knowing that one way or another, we will end up standing.

Life is rarely predictable.

Indeed, Life has become a constant flow of change in the world.

Some people resist change, and they tend to suffer because of it.

Some people are ambivalent to change, and they survive it.

Some people embrace change, and they thrive in it.

Real trust is about embracing the change.

Not just change in the economy or politics.

It’s about embracing the change in ourselves.

In who we have to become to face the unknown.

In our care for ourselves and those around us.

Our greatest challenge is letting go of our idea of our life, and embracing what Life brings to us as our actual life.

To see the beauty in the chaos.

To see the love in the midst of turmoil.

To see hope in the face of adversity.

We are magnificent being of creation.

When we true believe in our own power, we can trust is anything that Life has to offer us.
