Peaceful Warriors

3.13.11 Spring Forward.

"The time is now.  The place is here.  Stay in the present.  You can do nothing to change the past and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.  Stay in the present." - Dan Millman

Think of a situation that is stressful or difficult for you.  Maybe its an issue at work, in a relationship, or with a family member.  Really feel the emotions as your thoughts fill your head of the uneasy and negative episode.  Today we are peaceful warriors and have the opportunity to see things in a new light.  Today we spring forward.  Let us celebrate growth and use today as a springboard for more positive days ahead.  So, again, feel the difficult situation that clouds your mind.  See if you can find a new light, a new gift from this pain.  Maybe you can even mentally thank the person or situation for allowing you this opportunity for growth.

Ending Peace Chants:  Asaato Maa Sad Gamaya Tamaso Maa Jyotir Gamaya Mrityor Maa Amritam Gamaya - Lead us from unreal to Real, Lead us from darkness to the Light.  Lead us from the fear of death to the knowledge of Immortality.  OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti!  Lokaah Samastaah Sukhino Bhavantu - May the entire universe be filled with Peace and Joy, Love and Light.  Namaste.
Go and be a peaceful warrior today!
