Changing our mindset to a more peaceful consciousness doesn't have to be done in a big leap. Sometimes small steps are best.
A greater sense of peace can be found using a three-part process of honesty, openness, and willingness.
The "story telling" mind stitches together narratives all day. We can quiet this activity and allow the "wise mind" to emerge.
We can replace the inner critic who sits on the throne of the mind. It will yield to a new benevolent ruler.
We can practice seeing a second, spiritual world even as we perceive the familiar sights and sounds around us.
The process of self-acceptance can be aided by identifying specific inhibiting thoughts, and making a shift.
This book, originally published in 2002, outlines a three-step process designed to help us access a sense of inner peace.
