Tonight, our meditation is focusing on “Peace Within”. I was lucky enough to find this poster that shows a quote from Lao Tzu speaking on peace. I think that when we feel peace in ourselves and our surroundings, we receive a triple fold blessing. I believe that peace keeps us young. I mean it stops our bodies from aging. With peace, we have time to focus our faith and to feel the calling of our spirit.
For me, peace is:
- sitting by the fireplace with my husband, roaring fire, book in hand
- walking in the park with my dogs and hearing the trees, the water, the birds, and the breeze
- sitting in our arbour under our mountain ash tree, in the summer, being surrounded by green life and all the birds and squirrels that are in the trees
- sitting in mediation
- working in my garden
- cooking and baking
What is peace to you?
