As I ran up to THE PEACE TRAIN, I noticed a door with my name above it! How exciting! This must be where I get on – “PEACE, HERE I COME!”
For some reason, when I attempted to step aboard through the doorway to my PEACE, I was stopped dead in my tracks. As I stepped back to examine the door more closely, I noticed that the door frame to my peace was exactly the shape of my body… and placed upon that frame was a small sign that read,
“NO CARRY-ONS ALLOWED. Please leave your baggage at the door.”
I have had great successes in life – going in both directions – up and down.
I have had great success in building businesses, finding love, finding peace, finding myself and I have had great success in losing nearly everything – a few times. And through it all, on the rides upward as well as the rides downward, I finally figured out that the secret to maintaining my peace came when I was able to let go. I have now learned to be quite masterful in maintaining my peace – even during some of my darkest moments.
I have come to know that, He who lives with the most peace wins!
Even when people were “taking” things away from me, things of great value to me, they did not take my peace. And when I chose to maintain my peace and let those things go, I become happier because nothing was “taken” from me.
If you freely give it away, then nothing is actually taken from you.
You only feel like a victim when you are trying to hold onto what was taken. You can choose to no longer be a victim of the crime if you choose to see yourself as letting it go and you no longer hold onto it – it is gone, so let it go free. Even if it was rightfully yours, letting it go gives YOU peace. If you choose to become happier because of letting it go – you win.
“He who lives with the most peace wins!”
As long as you choose to hold onto the loss of things, those things will continue to eat you up… you will not know peace. The key to maintaining your peace is LETTING GO, period. Letting go of things that no longer serve you has a magical effect upon your entire being.
Let it go. Let it go. Let it go. (sung to the tune of Let it Snow)
…and you will find your peace.
He who lives with the most peace wins!
