Perception is Not Reality
Trying to focus on the gifts of the season like love and peace, but it seems so hard at times, so many “things” that you think need to be done. You know it’s in your head and you can change your thinking, but you have been so conditioned over the years. Sometimes it seems nothing has changed and other times it seems that everything has changed. It is true while everything has changed on your outside and inside truly you are still the same. The truth is you are always as you are now and never as you perceived yourself, so yes, your perception has changed but the core of you is the same.
As your perception changes your outside world changes to reflect your inside world. Your perception keeps changing to match who you truly are at the center. Ultimately this is the goal of ascension, to align your outside world with your true inner nature, through perception. Continue to grow and adjust your perception and your outside world with continue to match up with your inner being. The closer you get to match the two up the happier and more peaceful you will be. As your current world is more aligned to your true being than in the past, you will have more moments of peace and happiness.
So, as the Winter Solstice begins in a couple days, the New Year, continue to adjust and change your outer world to match your inner world. People often match their inner world to the outer world. This is chaos. For the world is only confusion and pure illusion. This is the problem. Matching the inner world with the current outer world only brings pain. You can never achieve an illusion, it’s not possible so you strive and strive and strive with no success.
Your world is but a reflection of your inner being, but you must go deep down in your interior to reach this core to find your true self. She is there. Quiet. Waiting. She is like a small innocence child wanting to stay close to home and close to her parent. She has to trust you before she will let you hold her hand. It takes time and effort or should I say patience. But when she lets you close, she will open her heart to you. This is the magic. This is Heaven on Earth. This is where you can begin to align your outer world with your true inner child. Miracles occur here.
You have changed the outside appearance but in reality you have not changed yourself, you have found yourself.
Love, “with a heart of peace”,
