Monday Meditation: Hold On To Peace

monday morning meditation

Peace is a wondrous thing.

You are more than whatever is troubling you.  A very real part of you exists beyond your worries, beyond your doubts, independent from the troubles and frustrations of the present moment.

Step back and observe yourself as you experience each moment.

Be present.

Think of the most difficult challenge you face right now.  Imagine that it’s not you, but a close friend who is facing this challenge.

What advice would you give her?

If you could step back and, instead of being the subject, look at your situation as an objective observer, would you look at it any differently?  Think of the advice you would give your friend if your friend were in your shoes.  Are you following your own best advice right now?

Don’t allow your current troubles to cloud your thinking.

Accept that whatever is going on n your life is temporary. It will pass.

Take today breath by breath, one step at a time.

Never let trouble from the past make you feel like you have a bad life now.  Just because yesterday was painful doesn’t mean today will be too.  Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.

Today you have a choice to explore these parts of yourself.

Give yourself the needed time and permission to explore and heal.
