CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 34

DAY 34
It is my choice whether I see shanti (peace) in a state of calmness or through chaos, distress, restlessness, or any form of perceived mental or physical agony, and so I choose shanti-peace instead.

 
Today’s premise states that there is always another way of looking at things I think I see, whether in my mind, or in the projected external world. Shanti-Peace has everything to do with my internal state. Is it in equilibrium or even-mindedness or is it in a state of internal havoc and mayhem? This is the question I must ask. If my mind is at peace, then such an interpretation of the world arises as well.

 
Since God is in my mind and shanti-peace comes from God Mind, this Loving Source must bring peace to my mind. It is not something I have to strive for. I need but be present to it. Aware of it. Overcome by it. Today I am taking steps to continue to remove blocks to the awareness of Love. I stand as an observer, outside of dis-ease, distress, chaos, and mental agony of all kinds. It is up to me, rather, I can choose the way I will see today.

 
Today I come to the realization that the state of shanti-peace doesn’t start outside me. It begins internally. This is the ultimate recognition in my ongoing awakening. Shanti paves the way for joy and for bliss to enter into my mind field. I choose, now to be One with the Unified Field of God Mind, that infinite reservoir and ocean of bliss. In the temple of silence and in the temple of Bliss, I reign supreme, in at-one-ment with the ocean of Wholeness and Completeness. I am much more than an individual mind-wave in the ocean of Fullness. Shanti-peace, which brings the rising tide of Joy Supreme and Bliss Unending is not only possible, but a necessity if I am to see things as they truly are. Neutral and holy. I choose to perceive shanti-peace, so that all things appear to shine with the Light of Samadhi-Oneness and reside in God Communion and Yoga-Union. The awareness and Divine Realization of Paradise is God Mind’s gift to me. I openly accept it and maximize its derived benefits in having a whole new perspective on what I see inside and outside of my mind.

 
Today I will engage in three longer contemplative sittings. One in the morning and evening and at any point throughout the day. I will do this with eyes closed. I will search the mind for fearful thoughts, anxious ruminations, personalities that seem to offend me or events I think cause me distress. I will say the following slowly and calmly:

 
‘It is my choice whether I see shanti (peace) in a state of calmness in this situation or I can see through chaos, distress, restlessness, or any form of perceived mental or physical agony, and so I choose shanti-peace instead. I can replace my fluctuating feelings and emotions of depression, anxiety, endless rumination and worry {or my thoughts about this occurrence, happening, personality I am clashing with or this event} with shanti-peace.’
