Inner peace is only a thought away.
When outer annoyances seem to keep me from feeling calm, serene, or centered, I focus my awareness inward and rediscover inner peace.
As I close my eyes and concentrate on my breathing, the day’s stress and concerns melt away. I remember that peace is my true nature. I recover my peace one thought, one breath, one prayer at a time.
Conflict and chaos in the outer world have no permanence. Peace is not a lack of conflict, but an abiding realization that conflict does not define or control me. I create my life through the thoughts I choose to think—and I choose peace.
Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Matthew 6:25
Christ Consciousness and Humanity
By and by, you get an idea. You begin to wonder if you might not, just possibly, somehow or another, clothe yourself in matter and construct for yourself a physical body that you could then travel around in, perceiving matter from the same perspective with which matter perceives herself. The idea contains one paradox after another. Yet something about it keeps you wondering. It puzzles you, and you love puzzles. You keep mulling it over as the eons roll by, trying to figure out some way to make it work. Until this point there was no biological life in the universe. The rocks had a limited consciousness, but it was not responsive to the intent of your spirit. In solid, liquid, or gaseous states, matter, as created and defined by your Father, behaved quite predictably according to fundamental physical principles untampered with until that time. Throughout your travels in the physical universe, you had always kept your consciousness separate from the matter you observed. At the time you hit upon this plan, however, all that changed. You looked around until you found a suitable planet for what you had in mind; not too hot, not too cold, situated within a stable young star system. You then focused your attention and your vibrational body in an entirely new way, an open way, a self-sacrificing way, a very powerful, loving way. Gently, slowly, you began to approach the planet.

Field of Play
The quintessential western with an amazing line up of movie making greats.
One-Eyed Jacks is a 1961 Western film directed by Marlon Brando; it was the first and only film directed by him. It was originally planned to be directed by Stanley Kubrick from a screenplay by Sam Peckinpah, but studio disputes led to their replacement by Brando and Guy Trosper. Brando portrays the lead character Rio, and Karl Malden plays his partner, “Dad” Longworth. The supporting cast features Katy Jurado, Ben Johnson, and Slim Pickens.
And one of the classic lines of all time, ‘You may be a one-eyed jack but I’ve seen the other side of your face.’
