Auspicious Peacefulness

Most of us just want to live our lives without being bothered by major problems and go about our days peacefully minding our own business. Unfortunately the world intrudes with bureaucrats, criminals, moralists, politicians, and other troublemakers. We somehow manage to find some semblance of stability and courage to get through daily routine challenges.

Many of us have discovered by trial and error that the way to a peaceful life is a daily, monthly, annual process of subtle change. We allow the slow erosion of old barriers and a gradual shifting of beliefs and opinions. We go about building upon new visions, and working towards fulfilling our dreams. When we learn to make peace within ourselves, we begin to enable peace with the world.

We desire abundance, and strength so as to thrive and not merely survive. Auspicious events together with our inner virtuous qualities point the way towards better living. With these in mind, people are able to get through the tough times all of us must face. Building upon the strength and knowledge we attain, we share our best qualities with others and radiate calm and peacefulness. We are better able to formulate a personal purpose to life.

In these troubled times of pandemics, global climate change, civil unrest, political upheaval, economic difficulties, and war, it’s harder to see the brighter side of life. These major problems along with personal hardships damage our enthusiasm and optimism. We question our national direction and feel concern about our future. The path ahead seems distorted and fragile.

On the other hand, some of us are overly optimistic and out of touch with the impact of current events or are in outright denial of what’s going on. This attitude may manifest as an egotistical attitude about what we can achieve and how much influence we can flex. This signals the need for a reality check and honest feedback from our peers. Are we being realistic or are we being unreasonable?

With all of this being said, we can help things get a lot better. We do this through the knowledge about what is possible and our actual abilities. Hence, we are better able to focus upon the challenges and work through them. We feel renewed confidence and motivation to achieve what we set out to do. The power we feel is not fear-driven nor egotistical. Instead, the drive is more wholesome and authentic. With more awareness and presence, comes the ability to collaborate, organize, plan, and follow through in helpful ways for everyone involved.

With a realistic view of the world and personal drive, we experience an increase in mental energy, vitality, and enthusiasm. There is a sense of renewed peace and auspiciousness within. Somehow, we will continue to work things out and eventually bring about a better world for everyone. In the meantime, it’s time to dust ourselves off and get to work. There’s plenty to do.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes Nelson Mandela. “If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.”

  1. Trying to move forward, or at least maintain good stability, is a continual challenge. It’s bad news when someone can’t do either and goes backwards instead.
