Knowledge, peace of mind and joy are available to you now. Anything real that has been obtained by religious leaders or spiritual gurus is also obtainable to you. In fact, knowledge, peace of mind and joy are not so much obtained as they are realized and remembered. All knowledge resides within you now. Nothing that is given to one is withheld from another. God does not play favorites. God’s love for you is in no way diminished by your perception that you are less than you are. God loves all, equally and always.
Love is all you are, it is your foundation. People are taught, and have the perception that they must build on their foundation to experience peace of mind, success and joy. How and what you build on your foundation is up to you, it is your free will. However, if you simply extend what you are, you will create more beauty than anything that could or has ever been built. My brother and sister, your base, your foundation, is perfect and you need not add or subtract anything from perfection. There are many paths you may choose to take in order to realize knowledge, peace of mind and joy in the present moment. The journey will be as complicated as you choose to make it, or as easy as you allow it to be. You may choose one path now, or you may choose to follow several different paths at the same time.
Look within, and move towards those paths that offer you peace of mind and joy, and are in alignment with your present values. Do not concern yourself with the paths others may be trying to force upon you, or what others say is the correct, proper, truthful or acceptable way to grow. Within your heart there lies a memory of your trueself. It is this memory you search for, and it is this memory you will someday remember. My brother and sister, all truth lies within you. You may have temporarily forgotten this, but you have now chosen to remember.
James Blanchard Cisneros is the author of You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey to Awareness, Peace of Mind and Joy.
James Blanchard Cisneros was born in Geneva, Switzerland. He grew up in Caracas, Venezuela and obtained his B.S. and MBA degrees in the United States. James states “My grandfather served in WWII as a colonel in the United States Marines, my father was a Vietnam Army veteran. After the Vietnam experience, my father wanted to break the cycle and protect us from a future draft. So he arranged for my brother and myself to be born in Geneva, Switzerland (a neutral nation), so that we could choose to refrain from the next conflict if that was our choice.”
James has been President of Cisneros Capital Group since January 2000. He is an art aficionado and owns Gomez Mulet Gallery in Miami, Florida. James is a board member of the Cisneros Children Foundation (CCF), a foundation which provides financial and technical assistance to children’s organizations in the United States and Latin America. James has served as Director of Outreach for Miami’s StandUp for Kids, a nationally acclaimed volunteer organization committed to the rescue of homeless and street kids.
James has a Bachelor of Arts from Regis University and a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Notre Dame.
James currently lives in Florida.
James writings and beliefs are universal in nature, he states “everyone has the right to find their own way, whatever tools an individual chooses to use, or whatever roads he chooses to travel to find peace of mind and joy should be respected.” James sees “You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey from Perception to Knowledge, Peace of Mind & Joy“ as more of a personal exercise than an actual book: “I began putting thoughts on paper purely for personal growth reasons. If reading the book assists you on your own personal journey, then I am truly honored to have been of service.”
