A truly peaceful mind is very sensitive,
Have you ever noticed that some individuals are especially conscious of the beauty they see around them? To be in their presence is to experience the continual expression of joy and wonder. They are curious, mindful souls, awake to the innocent and guileless nobility of nature...bountiful, brilliant, fragrant blossoms, the astoundingly intricate navigation of the hummingbird, the metaphor of majestic thunderheads presaging a clearing of deep emotions, the merriment and mirth of the monarch butterfly dancing its delight with the celestial scenery. Gifts of the universe presenting us with a playground of unparalleled splendor!
And it is not only nature that sings to these perceptive creatures. They easily discern every gesture of love and good will being expressed to and around them. And, having recognized these gifts-of-the-heart, they cannot help but laud their elegance and grace and the engagement of the souls which are sourcing them.
Conversely, when these glorious individuals encounter dissonance and distress, they immediately open their hearts, ministering to the unhealed pain that is being manifested. They are patient and receptive while the troubling emotions are expressed, releasing their iron grip upon the chambers of the heart.
These sages see beauty in and through everyone's journey, however it is being expressed.
This is the gift of Peace… a recognition that all is right with the world and with everyone in it. A recognition that each of us is following a path of our own choosing, a journey we have willingly embarked upon for the purpose of gaining experience, insight and wisdom through life in this glorious, precarious dimension.
When we fully comprehend the nature of our earth school sojourn, every action and reaction we feel or witness, every emotion we or others express, every event we experience becomes a thing of beauty… The story of the odyssey of our souls.
Though it is often difficult to ascertain the significance of what is unfolding in, around and through our lives, there is concord and serenity in the recognition that each of us has the opportunity to create experiences that enhance our wisdom. And each of us can choose how we want to respond to our own "adventures".
The beautiful gift of Peace comes from awareness and understanding of the nature of our journey. Once we fully recognize this fascinating opportunity we have chosen to experience, we cannot help but acknowledge with great sensitivity and appreciation the evidence of every grace-filled moment.
How lovely to imagine a world of "peace"ful earth dwellers!
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.*
