How to Find Peace #peace #innerpeace #worldpeace

In our currently highly politicized world (and include ISIS as a political entity rather than primarily a religious entity), we so often create conflict instead of peace due to one primary cause.  The primary cause of lacking peace is an “us vs. them” mentality.

If you are seeking peace, I would encourage you to look inside yourself to observe how many times your thoughts come from an “us vs. them” mindset, and to notice how often you think you are seeing this mindset in others. This mindset of “us vs. them” is rampant, not only in our politics, but in our culture in general. All of us feel tempted to think this way a lot of the time.Honeycomb

Largely, this antagonistic mentality is driven by fear.  Sometimes, it is driven by ignorance.  In this case, the main form of ignorance involved is the lack of awareness that we are all one, for the consciousness of “us vs. them” is the opposite of the universal consciousness of oneness, which is the true nature of consciousness in the Universe.

If we think of God as a loving energy-consciousness which permeates the Universe, then the Universe is primarily composed of loving energy-consciousness.  So, then, both the Source of the Universe as well as the very existence of the Universe is made up of one larger, unconditionally loving, interconnected and therefore Universal Consciousness.

The Divine, therefore, does not have an “us vs. them” mindset.  Even the Christian scriptures (which often seem full of the antagonistic mindset) declare that Christ came to save the world, not to condemn (gospel of John).  Those among us have too often misunderstood the Christian faith as an invitation to judgment, when Christ himself commanded us not to judge.  Judgment can only arise with the belief in separation, and “us vs. them” consciousness.

Indeed, the belief in separation is the origin of the “us vs. them” mindset.  The consciousness of separation is what then leads to judgment and fear.  Judgment and fear give rise to the antagonistic thinking that goes along with the consciousness of separation, that is, the “us vs. them” mindset.

If we can step out of judgment, fear, and “us vs. them” thinking, we can find peace.  More importantly, when we step out of judgment, fear, and “us vs. them” thinking and into the Universal Consciousness in which we realize that we are One, then we can create peace.

This quest for peace by stepping out of the “us vs. them” approach is a wonderful life-long quest, and when we find this peace of knowing Oneness, we find unconditional love.  When we know this Universal Consciousness of Oneness, Peace, and Love, we have indeed found our inner Divine Self; when we know ourselves as One, we have found God.

Love and Light and Peace,

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am an energy healer, intuitive life coach, and the guru-doula of a new interfaith spiritual community called the Self-Realization Community. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, or Facetime; please message me here to connect. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, my personal vision is to be a healer and guru-doula, empowering people to experience and to give birth to the divine within themselves, individually and in community. Perceiving a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness orChrist-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
