    My journal, a glass of water, meditation, the park, stretching, and a quiet, dark, cool bedroom to rest.

    Today I found peace going to my Church Mass tonight. I felt some anxiety today. It is also SO hot and humid that I can barely stay outside
    too long. I normally like to go for a walk when I feel that way. Instead I kept busy with errands until it was time to go to church. After Mass a young doe ran on the front yard of the church. It was so cute. No Mom around, she had no fear in the wide open area. It made my day : )

    Recently, I have been struggling with finding peace. I am irritable, distressed, anxious. I am usually good about being able to be still, but it’s been especially difficult these past week. I ask for thoughts, prayers, healing energy during this time. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

      Wishing you find peace Jenifer. I also always recommend treating yourself (if you can) to a relaxation massage. I try and do this once per month and always look forward to it. The soft lighting, spa music, the massage itself is very relaxing and peaceful.

      You will be in my prayers, dear Jenifer. May you find some peaceful moments while being here with us, and beyond, giving space for may be just slowly and consciously breathing in, and breathing out a few times, coming back to the present moment We are here with you. Blessings to you, dear friend.

    I have peace in my house. My husband just left for a very, very long bike ride that will take hours. I have bread rising, coffee in my cup, and no requirements in the day except to make a salad for a potluck I’ll go to later. I have plans that are my own choices to carry out or not. This isn’t just peace–it’s luxury.

    Peace is not the product of terror or fear.
    Peace is not the silence of cemeteries.
    Peace is not the silent result of violent repression.
    Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all
    to the good of all.
    Oscar Romero

    It’s my experience that you can’t truly promote peace in the moment unless you have cultivated inner peace. That is peace within yourself. Thich Nhat Hanh says that the simplest form of meditation is a smile so today I will do my best to smile in every circumstance. My mantra for today and I’m thinking everyday is to re-mind* myself to “Be the peace I seek” and to re-member* that creation is One.

    Breathing in, I calm my body.
    Breathing out, I smile.
    Dwelling in the present moment
    I know this is a wonderful moment.
    Thich Nhat Hanh

    “Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.” Etty Hillesum

    In the deep shadows. In the dew-covered grass. In the cat gazing out the window. In the morning stillness outside the window. In my inner stillness. May I hold this peace throughout the day.

    It is peaceful right now in the puddle jumper portion of Denver International Airport. About as quite as it has been yet at any of the transportation hubs. Cheryl and I were on the red eye from Anchorage and are waiting for our plane to Colorado Springs. Then a ride home in my truck waiting for us at the long-term lot. Another 200 miles from Springs. I am ready. I have seen and interacted with enough people for a while. Namaste.

    There is peace right here in this
    moment, as the day dawns.
    I am aware of just how fortunate I am.
    When I think about the conflicts all
    over the globe, I am confused by the
    ability of one person to cause so much
    destruction and harm. I think the fragile
    male ego is the most destructive force
    on earth.

      I too have difficulty fathoming why the powers seek to disrupt and destroy. This earthly Eden is such a beautiful place. It is a quiet, tranquil, sunny spring morning here with the local wildlife busily going about their new day. I am savoring that quiet.

    The Bible quote: My peace I give to you.
    Just saying it brought a lovely quietness to my soul.
    Then it was coupled with: do not be afraid.

    Have a awe-filled day, friends.

    There is peace right now outside – I was just noticing how quiet it was and that the birds were even quiet.
    Wishing everyone a nice relaxing weekend.
