With Awareness, Allowing, And Acceptance, Comes Peace

First, we become aware of what is going on inside of us.

Then, we learn to allow it to be whatever it is.

It may be uncomfortable or uneasy at times.

Eventually we learn to accept it for what it is – how we are feeling.

That acceptance is key to ultimately finding peace.

Without awareness, there is no peace.

Without allowing, there is no peace.

Without acceptance, there is no peace.

Where there is all three, we find tranquility.

It is not about changing the world or fixing our relationships.

It is not about changing someone else or fixing ourselves.

It’s about being okay with how we are feeling in any given moment.

That doesn’t mean we have to act upon all of our feelings.

It doesn’t mean we have to express all of our emotions.

Yet when we allow the energies that reside within us to just be, we can observe without action.

We can allow them to flow.

We can allow them to go.
