The Peace of Loving Self by Cheryl Marlene

The Peace of Loving Self

Love Worthy Lesson #5

Love worthy is a process of peace within.

The chaos of constant self-questioning hinders inner peace. If you question everything you say or done, inner peace will be elusive. Relentless questioning comes from both a lack of trust and a lack of confidence.

The constant barrage of judgment eats away at the self’s ability to believe, to trust, to receive truth. Judging self constantly creates turmoil and tips balance away from worthiness.

However, as the critical voice weakens, as self-questioning quiets, and as trust in finding personal truth strengthens, the inner experience calms. In this peace within comes the fortitude to learn about self and acknowledge worth. Inner peace reflects love of self, holding in loving hands an open heart.

Within this peacefulness question moves away from judgement and finds a path of understanding. Posing questions for contemplation and reflection emerges from within an inner sense of confidence and peace.

In the quiet, you can hear you.

In the calm, you can choose your path.

In the peace, you feel you worthy of love.

Give yourself the opportunity to consider why inner peace might be challenging by asking yourself this question:

Why do I create noise in my inner life?

The wise person asks questions.

My father has said this to me since I was young child just learning to read.

When you ask a question, you are giving yourself the opportunity to learn.

Learning is life. Learn always. Open to learn.

How? Simple: ask questions!

Use the question to learn.

Ask. Tune in. Follow flow. Ponder and reflect.

The Weekly Question offers you a chance to step back and learn about yourself.  For example, you may use the question as part of a meditation practice or while taking a mindful walk.  Cheryl highly recommends reflection. Reflection is a method of focused thought and is a great way to work with any question.  Here’s an article describing the Three Steps of Reflection.
