Peaceful or Not

The following piece was dictated to me from my guide Mr. Henry James Edwards, better known in life as Harry Edwards, the spiritual healer.

Peaceful or Not

It comes down to one thing and one thing only, do you want to be peaceful or not? You say that you want to be peaceful but when something enters into your mind that might not even be a big concern you jump with a fervor to fix it and don’t even acknowledge the angst that accompanies the action. You get pulled this way and that way until you feel like you’re going to give up and simply take a back seat which isn’t what you want from your existence. So, what is it that you need to do differently?


Trust me when I say that you don’t need to rewrite history but to take a step back from each situation and understand that the end of one challenge only leads to the beginning of another one. The challenges to be addressed never end and the trouble with getting all wrapped up in worry is that it takes you into a place of negativity that makes you uneasy and drains your energy. But it makes a big difference when you can step back and see that something isn’t a crisis and the truth is that most things are not a crisis, but challenges to be addressed.


Most of the little things that arise every day are not at crisis level but you can easily make it turn into a crisis by burdening yourself with angst and then there isn’t any peace of mind. You feel uncomfortable and agitated. This has been a lifelong habit, but you don’t need to make yourself over, just be diligent in seeing the ways that you react to situations and take it down a notch or two. That is all it would take for you to step into a mental state that promotes a peaceful resolution to things that have yet to be resolved on any given day, and isn’t it the day to day in which you will live out the remainder of your time in the realm of the physical reality?

You clearly don’t need to enter this realm and still find that you are carrying apprehension and mistrust for yourself. When you can begin to address those habits that are destructive to your peace of mind and perceive them in a more positive light, you will lighten-up considerably. It’s up to you and you alone to see a tendency to worry and simply understand that this is a self-indulgence that you have let control your mind and that you no longer want to go down to the depths of worry because everything isn’t perfect. It’s not going to be perfect. Once you solve one challenge, sooner or later another one comes along and so they are not going to stop presenting themselves, but you can stop reacting as if everything is a crisis to be worried about. Don’t go there and just do what you can without all that anxiety that has accompanied you for many decades of living in this body as this particular person.


So, let me conclude by saying that this is not beyond your reach or the reach of those you are sharing this with, but it doesn’t just happen that someone grows light-hearted and peaceful. You must face that shadow side of yourself, the side that gives way to habits of worry and self-criticism stand up to it by saying, “Sorry, I’m not listening.” Then you look into a better way to frame the situation and move out of crisis mode.

Remember this is something that only you can do for yourself but it’s not so hard to do. You simply ask yourself “What is it that I want? Do I want to be peaceful or not?
