To develop certain skills we have selected a life path to provide the climate for learning. When decoded, your hands will link you with one or two of the following: Service, Love, Wisdom or Peace. Each path has their ups and downs. Where do you fit in; service or obligation (service), connection or stuffed feelings (love), taking risks or sitting on the fence (wisdom), and lastly peace or panic (peace)? Let’s delve into the world of Peace.
The person on the life path of peace is in a peculiar predicament. The environment for their learning will consist of peace and panic; harmony and discord. They often feel like ‘someone’ made a mistake by ‘putting’ them here, in this crazy, mixed up, convoluted place. “Is someone playing a joke on me”, they might exclaim in their excitement. This life-path is designed to help a person develop the ability to feel safe in their own space. This person is seeking a deep sense of calm within her/himself. There is a tendency for addiction to adrenaline. When the rush is over there is a great sense of tranquility. The lessons include dealing with responsibilities without creating an endless chain of ‘emergencies’. In survival mode this student is struggling to stay ahead of the game and may see the body as the enemy.
You can look at your own finger tips to determine if you qualify for this path. According to the International Institute of Hand Analysis you are on the life path of Peace if you find two or more finger prints with the ‘arch’ pattern:
This isn’t about eliminating the struggle and discord or always living in quietness and serenity. We need stressors to accomplish. All contrast helps us gain perspective. The key is: Balance. What’s the remedy for converting struggle to ease?
Sit for a moment and watch the magnificent valley oak tree. It grows thick with lush green elegant leaves in the spring, thrives in summer, sways in the wind, drops it’s leaves and acorns to the ground in fall, and survives the elements of winter. It lives in ‘ease’ in it’s own purity, knowing no time. You know there is a silent place of calm within you where you can go for peace. And there are healthy ways to get there. Being in nature, walking, hiking, bird-watching, lounging at the river, reclining on the house boat, yoga, and hugging a tree are some ways to regain balance.
To create a better sense of balance;
1) Engage in life one step at a time, 2) Slow down, 3) B r e a t h e
Masters on the path of peace get one job done at a time, realize there is time for everything, and live in the natural flow of life.
For those who don’t have two or more of the arch prints please be aware that some folks do require more peace, balance, room to breath, and space to panic and go ‘crazy’. It’s part of what they ‘call for’ in their life development. It should be simple to put yourself in their shoes since everyone is faced with this agenda at some time or another. Other markings on the hand could qualify non-arch-pattern people for this guidance. However, that’s for another lesson. For now, take your pick, peace or panic (or both)? Any way, it’s all about LIVING as you are!
