Peace is what we are, our natural state. If we do not feel peaceful, it is because we are telling ourselves stories of who we think we are. The stories often involve worry about the past or dread of the future. We tell these stories to people that we encounter and people repeat these stories back to us. The cycle of reinforcement (and conditioning) started when we were babies and continues until we wake up to what we truly are: love, peace and joy.

How do we break the cycle of addictive thought? By bringing awareness to our thoughts, our emotions and our actions. The light of awareness will allow us to release our stories and surrender to our natural state, which is peace. What is the light of awareness? It is simply attention without judgment.

Let's be aware of our conditioned thoughts and beliefs, look at them without judgment or labels and let go of our stories, which are boring anyway.

Let's return to what we are. Let's embody peace.

There is no action that we have to take to achieve peace, love, wisdom and fulfillment. It is our natural state, only requiring our attention.

We receive what we focus our attention on. We have a choice. When we are frustrated, we can choose peace. When we are angry, we can choose love. When we feel lack, we can choose gratitude. By acknowledging that we have what we need by being grateful, we will, in turn, receive what we need.

Let’s be grateful, because we have so much to be grateful for.
