Choose your Peace and Happiness

We think that peace and happiness are a result of a special set of external conditions (a special place with good energy, right people, having money, etc.). Yet truly peaceful people all share one simple reality.  They choose peace, happiness and joy in their life. You and only you are responsible for your own peace, happiness and joy. Outside conditions may help temporarily but true lasting peace only comes when you embrace and live it inside no matter what happens externally.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

Albert Einstein

And this is never more true than on our journey to living our own peace, joy and happiness. We have found that it is important to understand where we vibrate emotionally at the current moment of time and then as Esther Hicks says “reach for the next best thoughts and feelings that you can reach from where you are.” So if you are angry you might be able to reach to a little more joyous thought like discouragement or blame which are slightly toward joy and not so far as to be unattainable. Then we have become one at this new set-point we can reach for another better feeling (perhaps several hours later or the next day). We continue up the tone scale until we are at joy.

1 joy/knowledge/empowerment/freedom/love/appreciation
2 passion
3 enthusiasm/eagerness/happiness
4 positive expectations/belief
5 optimism
6 hopefulness
7 contentment
8 boredom
9 pessimism
10 frustration/irritation/impatience
11 overwhelment
12 disappointment
13 doubt
14 worry
15 blame
16 discouragement
17 anger
18 revenge
19 hatred/rage
20 jealousy
21 insecurity/guilt/unworthiness
22 fear/grief/depression/despair/powerlessness

So if we want enough money, its not moving from not enough to enough but from insecurity to security about money.

If you want health its not moving from sickness to health but from fear to confidence about your health.

No mate to having one: is actually moving from feeling lonely to feeling of excitement or satisfaction.

Not having peace to feeling peace: is moving from upset (anger or resentment) to centered calm or peace (empowered joy).

“If you will make the improved feeling or emotion be your real destination, then anything and everything that you want will quickly follow.” Esther Hicks/Abraham

Until next time,  Jim

From the N2 (Cape Town towards George) Take the first Swellendam exit (left). This is the R60. Proceed (1km+) through the 4 way stop and continue approximately 2-3 km and look for a sign for the Hermitage. Make a hard right (270 degrees). After the turn continue about 200 meters and turn left at first road (dirt). Proceed 300 meters and turn left into Red Roan Ranch and go to bottom of hill (the main house).
