In times of distress, conflict and chaos, we can find within us a place of peace. There is a space of Awareness where we can find refuge, rest and restoration. We go there not for the purpose of escaping this world or denying the reality of its suffering. We go there in order to return with greater strength, clarity, determination, and purpose, to enter into the activities and demands of the world, to bring greater awareness, healing, justice and love to this world that is our home. Meditation is the entryway to that place.

Excerpt from an Awareness Session* with Bob and Donna, New Years Day, 2014
For the new year, let us speak about peace.
Peace is not the absence of conflict. Peace is found in the response to conflict. In the material world, conflict arises. It is in the nature of the material world that there will be tension between oppposites. There will be differing perspectives and points of view.
Peace means being able to harmonize, to adjust one’s frequency to the frequency of another, so that rather than two discordant notes, there is a harmony.
Peace involves self-sacrifice. Peace requires the sacrifice of aggression, domination and control, anger and greed and ignorance: the sacrifice of those forces within one to the greater good, the greater harmony, to the force of love and awareness.
Peace is the ultimate nature of Oneness. Meditation, prayer, and contemplation bring the experience of the universal peace, the underlying order, the essential harmony. People know that peace exists and desire to bring it to their lives in the world.
However, in a world of duality peace is not something that is going to just happen. Peace on earth or in one’s heart demands concentrated effort, an awareness of the greater good, an understanding of the interconnectedness of everything and the willingness to give up one’s own personal perspective when necessary to the greater good.
May there be peace on earth and in your heart.
May all beings be happy, peaceful and free of suffering.
*Awareness sessions are channeled readings that provided much of the original information of the SourcePoint principles and practices. Occasionally I will be sharing direct transcripts of Awareness sessions on this blog. In an Awareness Session I am in touch with and speaking for a greater Awareness, a consciousness not separate from my own, but able to see more deeply, clearly and without judgment or opinion, than I am able to in my ordinary consciousness. The field that is accessed is the field from which SourcePoint arose. Before every session I ask to be a clear channel for the light, energy and information that brings positive transformation. Every session has always begun and finished with the simple prayer: May All Beings Be Happy, Peaceful and Free of Suffering. For more information on Awareness Sessions, please see my original website www.youareyourpath.com, an archive of my work from 2000-2007.
