Peace comes from within.
Do not seek it without.
I am working on peace. I have been so busy lately, or at least more busy than I am used to being. (Evidenced by the fewer blog postings!) Along with doctors appointments (fine, just maintenance!) running to auditions, and fighting City Hall (long story) I am also filling in at the desk where I usually substitute teach art. There is a lot of multi-tasking. You multi-taskers out there ... I envy you! How do you do it? I get handed checks while I'm on the phone and then I hang up and have someone in front of me asking another question, then can't remember what the phone conversation was all about. I look down at my notes and can't read my own writing! It's like translating hieroglyphics!
When I get overwhelmed and start feeling stressed I try to remember to keep things in perspective. I am not being asked to take someone's appendix out or diffuse a bomb. I have to remind myself that my reactions are my choice, even though they sometimes feel like they choose me. It is all coming from within. Peace comes from within. And then I remember to b r e a t h e.
If we have not peace,
it is because we have forgotten
that we belong to each other.
We shall find peace.
We shall hear angels,
we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.
Hope you are having a peaceful week!
How do you find your peace?
