In this Christmas time, the words “Peace on earth, goodwill to all” take on significance. In fact, this adage isn’t seasonal at all. It can be a part of your every day life.
Finding peace in your life is really a matter of finding peace in your spirit. When your spirit is calm, then peace of mind follows and the swirl of chaos and confusion is an annoyance, but unable to cut to the core of our being.
Peace is not like an elusive rainbow that can be seen but never visited. Peace can take residence in your heart when the space is there for it. Most of us have such cluttered spirits and have gotten ourselves so busy that we don’t have the margin to explore the possibilities within us, nor do we have the process to help us get there.
Peace and security are often joined at the hip as being mutually dependent. We may have a sense of security, but we aren’t really secure. The world is a broken and fallen place so security is an illusion.
Security is simply protection from outside forces. Peace is the need for no protection. Yes, you can have a bit of heaven on earth. Peace can be owned. You’ve experienced it, haven’t you? Now you know when you have it and when you don’t.
Look for an On-Purpose Peace program in January. You’ll be hearing more in the next 30 days or so. On-Purpose Peace is both a one-on-one coaching program by Kevin W. McCarthy or Mary Tomlinson as well as a small group experience that can be self-facilitated.
