By achieving inner peace you harbor calmness of mind that brings to the surface a blissful inner you, regardless of what seems to be going on in the outer world, or what life seems to be dishing you in any situation.
Achieving inner peace and how successful people think from within, like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, great Presidents and other great world leaders, as well as artists, musicians, and the like, might only seem to be difficult at times.
But one common theme in all these individuals is, they have been aware that it’s the real you, simply obscured by the darkness of fear, doubt, and guilt making inner peace and success seem difficult to achieve.
Isn’t it strange that a world that has a problem achieving inner peace, where everything is in chaos, attack, and defense, arose from the projections of fear, doubt, and guilt of the original separation from the One-Mind of God, a separation that formed the illusive ego-based mind?
When you are able to bring the light of truth to this, you will know the reality that lies within, and in quietness will take no part in these insane projections any longer.
But in order to do so, let’s not place guilt on ourselves, because the past is only the images on the movie screen, and past down to us from generation upon generation and does not really exist.
Only behind the projection screen is true reality. Besides, guilt implies the past occurred.
More importantly, a spiritual peace within is not afraid of the truth, or we are merely believing in what doesn’t exist.
This will only guarantee more fear and continued separation and fragmentation of our whole mind.
When you are confronted with this insane form of the original error rising to frighten you, and keeping you from achieving inner peace, simply say to yourself this quick prayer, or use it in mindfulness meditation:
- God is not fear, but He is Love, and Love is All that I Am.
This will help you to see how ridiculous fear really is. We can say this is what is really meant by “The truth will save you” or “The truth will set you free.”
Truth as you possess it will never desert you; so you do not need this insane world giving you substitutions. Inward is where achieving inner peace and your sanity abides, and every ounce of insanity is outside of you.
If you believe that truth is found outside of you, and that error and guilt are within, you cannot help but be a body of substitution without an ounce of substance.
A Course in Miracles paints us an elegant tapestry of senseless substitutions that are touched with insanity, and it looks like this:
- “Your substitutions are swirling lightly on a mad course like feathers dancing insanely in the wind with no substance. They fuse and merge and separate, in shifting and totally meaningless patterns that need not be judged at all. To judge them individually is pointless. Their tiny difference in form are not real difference at all; none of them matter.
- Let them all go, dancing in the wind, dipping and turning till they disappear from sight, far, far, outside of you. And turn you to the stately quiet and calm within, where in holy stillness dwells the living God you never had, and retraces with your mad journey outside yourself, leading you gently back to truth and safety within.”
The Present Moment
Try to remember that a mind achieving inner peace is in the present moment, or, as A Course in Miracles terms, “a holy instant.”
ACIM states, “The holy instant is truly the time of Christ.”
It’s not fearing the future or regretting the past. Allow your inner Self to begin achieving inner peace with the harmony of the holy instant.
To true spiritual peace arising in you, in this instant, now!
