Some day~~perhaps today~~I shall begin to write peaceful quiet blogs. So peaceful that our blood pressure shall lower, down, down, down to the beat of the Earth, yes, that low, the beat of Peace.
Thoughts so silent that you hear seagulls calling in the distance~~don’t you?
You’ll hear a stone drop in Lake Superior~~kalunk!~~that underwater swooshing echo as the rock falls, falls, falls beneath the radar of our busy lives.
I have always admired quiet spaces.
Deep forest hushes.
Peaceful dawning orange morning light as you pause along the roadside of life.
Yes. Across the bright blue Mondays and into cloudy Tuesdays and rainy Wednesdays folks will pause to relax, to sigh, to breathe deeper toward the weekend of their deep surrender to peace.
Perhaps I, too, will finally completely totally encompass the peace which we are beneath our thoughts, our wild creations, our habits, our daily chores, our work.
We’re surrounded by peace~~aren’t we?
We need only connect with what underlies.
Our thoughts and beliefs are like freighters passing in the lake. But we, dear friends, are the endless lake, expansive, free, our waves lapping the shore, rising in spite of ourselves.
Peace be with you.
And also with you.
May peace grow like a seedling through April soil, pushing upward, upward, toward warming sunlight. May peace sing through your pores, dancing with your cells. May you watch distraction attempt to gain momentum, but you won’t let it, no, you won’t, you’re a Child of Peace, a Child of such Exquisite Peace that you simply smile and bless all that attempts to rob you of your essence, your birthright, this precious peaceful moment beyond all understanding.
Don’t let thieves break in during your sleep and steal away that which your godmother bequeathed in dreams, and nature insists.
Peace be with you, dear friends.
Peace is what you are…
**Please check your blood pressure. Surprised that it lowered that much~~aren’t you? (Mine sure did!)
