It seems like wherever you go these days you are bombarded with Christmas carols ringing out phrases like “peace on earth” and “good tidings of comfort and joy”.
Yet, peace and joy may seem elusive in the crowded shopping malls and even worse in the parking lots outside.
So where are you to find peace and joy this holiday season?
Eckhart Tolle in Stillness Speaks writes:
“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.”
… and …
“When you know who you truly are, there is an abiding alive sense of peace. You could call it joy because that’s what joy is: vibrantly alive peace. It is the joy of knowing yourself as the very life essence before life takes on form. That is the joy of Being – of being who you truly are.”
So during this holiday season, filled with the hustle and bustle of activities, events and people, find the time to BE STILL, to connect with who you truly are, and find that vibrantly alive peace (joy) you having been searching for within you wherever you go, whatever you do and whomever you encounter.
Taking a few moments to just pause, BREATHE, and be still on a daily basis will help you get through all life’s craziness as you are reminded of who you truly are and what truly matters in your life.
So this week, I invite you to find the peace and joy within you, BE WHO YOU TRULY ARE, and live more abundantly!
