“Making peace with where you are does not mean that you LIKE where you are necessarily. Nor does it mean that you are not taking positive steps to make changes. This is more about the inner-journey than the outer one. Hating your body fat will not release you from it. Hating your debt will not pay it off. Resenting your boss will not get you a new job. Despising the disease in your body will not heal it. Criticizing your mate or children will not get them to fall in line with your plans for what a relationship “should” look like.
Making peace means the end of waging war. You seem to forget that peace is very active. Peace is not a deadness or lack of vibrational vitality. True peace brings mental clarity, sane thinking and it is an energy that opens the doors of the Divine Forces of Creativity where there was nothing but a brick wall before. [this is my favorite part]…..Making peace with where you are means fully standing in the place where you are, planting your feet there and breathing it in long enough to find your balance and to contact the Divine Center within you so that you can respond rather than react. There is a very wise Taoist saying; ” A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step”. Your Holy Guide within will orchestrate and choreograph each one of those steps forward to the degree that you are willing to slow down enough to seek Guidance and then follow the Directions as they come – even if they scare you or make no sense.” ~ Jacob Glass ~ Starve the Bully, Feed the Champion
