How to find peace in this moment and ultimately with who WE are right now, no matter what is going on (or not going on) in our lives? The key I’ve discovered that works best for me is simple acceptance. This is much different that “giving up” or enabling, but think of it more as letting go trustfully, surrendering, and allowing what is, simply to be, without judgment. When we can look at a situation without our judgments and reactions and see what is left sitting there, this allows for further clarity of the bigger picture.
Ralph Smart goes deep once again in another episode of Infinite Waters where he talks about how to deal with difficult people by being calm and connected to ourselves.

My experience with Ayahuasca, a Native American herbal medicine that boosts consciousness, spirituality, clarity and healing.
I sometimes like to think of we individual human beings as bits of consciousness, embedded within greater fields of consciousness. Each of us is poterntially evolving in awareness and understanding. Yet many of us remain stagnant, stuck in the world of the mind and it’s stories and beliefs. This is very important to understand, because […]
I stayed single for three years, which were filled with ups and downs. I eventually hit rock bottom with my disordered eating. That actually gave me the strength to pull myself out of that vicious cycle and helped me realize I needed to change my thoughts and mindset around my body and food.
Attraction can be intimate or platonic. It can be felt with either a stranger or close friend. Attraction, at its core, is a manifestation of our personal energy. Our fellow human beings are either attracted to or repelled by this energy –it really is that simple. Others want to be around someone that makes them feel positive.
Having a positive perspective isn’t always easy, is it?
