Inner peace, clear conscience, a harmonious state of mind--these are treasures greatly to be sought for. A sense of peace changes you. It changes your Vision, how you see things. It changes your Light, how others see you.
The following story honors St. Patrick's Day (today is March 17) and, at once, illustrates the point:
Murphy was 77 years old and had worked 80 hours a week all his life and never had a holiday. His children were all married and his wife had died. He was finally at peace with himself and decided to enjoy life. He had a face lift, got a new expensive toupee, bought ten new suits and a brand new car. He looked great and felt great.
One evening he got all dressed up in a new suit, new tie, put on his toupee, and got into his new car and drove off towards Dublin. He was only gone a mile when he was killed in an accident.
On arrival in heaven, he walked over to St. Peter and said, "What's going on here? All my life I worked hard, and finally, when I had everything in place to enjoy myself, I was killed. Why? Why did you let it happen?"
St. Peter ducked his head in embarrassment and said, "Well, to tell you the truth I didn't recognize you."
So choose your thoughts carefully. As Nishan Panwan exhorts, "Keep what brings you peace, release what brings you suffering. And know that happiness is just a thought away."
Meanwhile, Light your Vision and See the Change!
