WE ARE WHAT WE BELIEVE!

Who we really are!  What is real? Our belief system is based on our past experience which is constantly being relived in the present, with an anticipations are so coloured by the past that we are unable to see the immediate happenings n our lives without distortions and limitations. With willingness, we can reexamine who we think we are in order to achieve a new and deeper sense of our real identity.600834_327075687372129_1900755560_n To experience this sense of total freedom, it is important for us to detach ourselves from past-future preoccupations and and choose to live in the now. To be free also means not being confined to the reality that seems limited by our physical senses. To be free allows us to participate in the love we share with everyone. We cannot be free until we discipline and retrain our minds.

While all of us want love, many of us seem unable to experience it. Our guilty fears from the past block our ability to give and receive LOVE in the present. Fear and Love can never be experienced at the same time. It is always our choice as to which of these emotions we want. By choosing love more consistently than fear, we can change the nature and quality of our relationship.392528_326279417451756_415043942_nI think there’s truth about these saying  ( above)  But forgiveness is LOVE.

ATTACK AND DEFENCE. When we perceive another person as attacking  us we usually feel defensive, and we find a way, directly or indirectly, to attack back. Attacking always stems from fear and guilt. No one attacks unless he first feels threatened and believe through attack he can demonstrate his own strength, at the expense of another’s vulnerability.

Attack is really a defence  and,  as with all defences which are designed to keep guilt and fear from our awareness, attack actually preserves the problem. Most of us cling to the belief  that attacking can really get us something we want. We seem to forget that attacking and defending do not bring us inner peace.282859_413050715404927_1275311365_nIn order to experience peace instead of conflict, it is necessary  to shift our perception. Instead of seeing others attacking us, we can see them as fearful. We are always expressing either Love or Fear. Fear is really a call for help, and therefore a request for Love. It is apparent, then, that to experience peace we must recognize  that we do have a choice in determining what we perceive.

Many of our attempts to correct others, even when we believe we are offering constructive criticism, are really attempts to attack them by demonstrating their wrongness and our rightness. It may be helpful to examine our motivations. Are we teaching Love or are we demonstrating attack?

If others do not change in accordance with our expectations, we are likely to regard them as guilty, and thus reinforce our own belief in guilt. Peace of mind comes from not wanting to change others, but by simply accepting them as they are. True acceptance is always without demands or expectations.th-32FORGIVENESS. Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is the letting go of the past. And is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions.

Our misperceptions can only be undone now, and can be accomplished only through letting go whatever we think other people have done to us, or whatever we think we have than to them. Through this process of selective forgetting, we become free to embrace a present without the need to reenact the past.

Through true forgiveness we can stop the endless re-cycling of guilt and look upon ourselves  and others with Love. Forgiveness releases all thoughts that seems to separate  us from each other. Without the belief of separation, we can accept our own healing and extend healing LOVE to all those around us. Healing results from the thought of unity.1798200_680970338631003_927453574_n

As inner peace is recognized as our single goal, forgiveness becomes our single function. When we accept both our goal and our function, we find that our inner, intuitive voice  becomes our only guide to fulfillment. We are released as we release other from the prison of our distorted  and illusory perceptions, and join with them in the unity of Love.

It is important to remember that we all have everything we needed now, and the essence of our being is LOVE. If we think we need to get something from another, we will LOVE that person when we get what we think we want, and we will hate that person when we do not. We frequently have love/hate relationship in which we find ourselves trading conditional love. The getting motivation leads to conflict and distress and is associated only with linear time. Giving means extending one’s love with no conditions no expectations and no boundaries. Peace of mind occurs, therefore, when we put all our attention into giving and no desire to get anything from, or to change, another person. The giving motivation leads to a sense of inner peace and joy that is unrelated to time.

LOVE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING!     BELIEVE THAT GOD FIRST LOVES US, WE OUGHT TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
