To find peace and/or happiness… HERE ON EARTH!!! It is attainable, folks. I promise. FIRST: You’ve got to REALLY want it. And SECOND: You’ve got to understand what “IT”… REALLY “IS”.
FIRST: Really wanting peace and happiness is a MUST in order to actually achieve it. Now, it is easy to say that you “WANT” peace and happiness, BUT DO YOU… REALLY, R-E-A-L-L-Y WANT “IT”? TOUGH, TOUGH question. And probably the majority of you wouldn’t be able to answer “YES,” accurately. Confusing, huh? I propose that MANY people who answer “YES” are currently struggling with a rather full plate of crap. Unbeknownst to them, they actually NEED to be upset or angry as a means of, subconsciously, releasing some of their “INNER TURMOIL”. Pretty deep, huh?
You’ve got to identify your “ISSUES,” folks. EVERYBODY’S GOT ‘EM. Now identify them, deal with them, and MOVE FORWARD… toward actually finding peace and happiness. What’s the age at which we need to identify our issues? THE SOONER, THE BETTER!!! It is so hard to look inside ourselves and realize that there are things that need to be “fixed”. Folks, I had “ISSUES” at a very young age. “ISSUES” that kept getting worse until a car accident, at age 22, FORCED me to take a very GOOD, LONG look at myself enough to realize that “SOMETHING”… was wrong… “SOMEWHERE”. Thus began… “MY JOURNEY”…
SECOND: understanding what “IT” (peace and happiness) REALLY “IS”: “IT IS WHAT IT IS,” folks. Peace cannot be easily described. “IT” must be achieved within the “self” before it can be experienced between 2 separate entities. PERIOD. I don’t believe “IT” is achievable with any amount of money or fame. How much one has OR having the best of anything and everything. “NONE” of that matters… “TO ME”. We’ve all heard stories about how too much of anything NEVER seems to be enough to achieve true peace and happiness. GIVING and HELPING. Now… “THAT”… is what it’s all about… TO “ME”. How about… “YOU”? I encourage you to think about that, folks. WHAT, in life… REALLY MATTERS… To you? WHEN… are you happiest? Please make a list, date it, and tuck it away for future reference. I’m pretty sure that list will change over time. “LIFE” is a journey for each of us, folks. And it’s important to pay attention along the way…
Please give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today… “EVERY” day!!!
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!. AMEN.
