“I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
In this moment, I pause to be fully present in all that I Am.
The anguishes and achievements of my past, and the questions and possibilities of my future, are dormant in this precious place of breath and solace.
In this moment, I am Peace. In this moment, I am Love. And in this moment, I create the Joy that is to come.
I notice my breath, light and easy. I notice my heart, steady without my worry. In this moment, I am Light.
The Light begins in my Anahata, my heart chakra, glowing brighter with each inhale and releasing with purity on each exhale.
With this light, I illuminate my life, and I see that all is so very good.
With this light, I breathe compassion and well-being to all beings who share this moment with me.
With this light, I see the kindness, authenticity, and easy brilliance of all that I Am.
I breathe in the rhythm of I Am. I breathe in soft Love and I breathe out soft Light.
With the light of this moment, I bright illumination to tomorrow, and I face my future with easy peace.
