Embracing the Peace Within

sunday.-make-it-a-peaceful-one_938

Oftentimes, I’m told I am an encourager because I have the tendency to see the world  from positive perspectives. This is true. Yet, this is by choice. If you’ve followed my writings, you know I have an idealistic approach, but I am also realistic.

I have a keen sense of awareness of world events and of the devastations around the world. But, with so much focus on the prevalence of all going wrong, why would I give more energy and focus to those things.

Evidently the world is not calm, relentlessly it does not stand still. For this reason, I embrace peace.  I choose to find solace in knowing peace is not external. It’s internal. I can live in a world of chaos and have peace within. Peace is a state of mind. It is the result of internalizing the worldview and surrounding from a positive perspective.

One of my favorite quotes is from Jack Kornfield, “By making the heart a zone of peace, it affects everybody you touch.”

We can choose to embrace confusion or retreat to a zone of peace.

I choose to make my life a peaceful one!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day is observing the harvest of all things

which cause gratitude.

Today, as I reflect on all things which cause gratitude, thanks

to all my readers. Thanks to those who made the decision

to follow, like, or share my literary work.  Thanks for inspiring me

with your creativity, knowledge, wisdom, and spiritual guidance.

As the new year approaches, I will remain on my peaceful journey

and look forward to sharing the path with you.

Enjoy your time with family and loved ones, and if alone, know

you are enough.

Shalom!

If Wildflowers Flourish Why Can’t We?

Flourish

Something to Think About:

If wildflowers can flourish peacefully among other wildflowers and create a beautiful landscape, why can’t we flourish in the midst of diversity and create something beautiful and in harmony too?
