Choose Peace First

Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter. It must begin with your own thoughts, and then extend outward. It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises. (A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 34, W-pI.34.1:2-4A Course in Miracles Workbook Lesson 34, )

No matter what chaos appears to be happening in the world we see, the most important thing we can do is maintain a peaceful state of mind. Our state of mind is always our choice. We are in complete control.

If we are anxious, it is only because we have chosen to believe that false images are real. We have another choice. It does not seem to be a logical choice, but this is only because we have given reality in our minds to what is illogical. We cannot find peace in the thought system of chaos. But we can find peace in our right mind, our true Self. Our true Self is always accessible to us. We need only be willing to accept Its vision in place of our imagined perceptions.

The practice of stepping back from our perceptions and opening to our right Mind will bring us to the peace that will guide us through the seeming chaos of the world. Our true Self will inspire us with right action that quiets fear, heals our mind and blesses our world. We can offer no greater gift to the world than to choose peace first, moment by moment.
