Peace

It's been a quiet week of deep interior cleansing - on emotional, spiritual and physical fronts...

I prepare for my first and long overdue colonoscopy later this morning. But I have also cleansed myself of possessions - as I engage in the process of divesting myself of long held things which I now choose to give away - weeding out half of my closet and drawers, and even selling a substantial percentage of my gold jewelry.

Some of these pieces were passed down to me by my grandmother, but somehow, I sense her urging me, that it is time to let them go. I realize later, that I chose to sell these items on the very day that was the 16th anniversary of her passing from this life into eternity. Somehow, this incredible woman of faith reminded me, that we cannot take anything along with us on our ultimate journey.

I wish to do nothing more and nothing less - than to simply, lighten my load...

And my reduce my footprint as well...

I have said to many, that my surgery has had more of an energetic impact on me than a physical one...

It comes to me, that Buddhist and Hindu sages, and Christian mystics were right. The path to freedom and ultimate peace lies in letting go...

And as often happens in my reading, I came across some beautiful insights from Sally Kempton and Anthony de Mello, that reminded me of the true nature of peace...

"When you allow yourself to consciously enter the state of vulnerability, you find that its heart is peace." Sally Kempton


"Peace is your true protection, your invulnerable core." Sally Kempton

"Even in the deepest sorrow, there is deepest peace." Sally Kempton

"Let all anxieties cease, and let peace take over, for in God's hands, is our peace". Anthony de Mello

Today, seek peace. Receive peace. Embody peace. And reflect peace - into every darkened corner and every needed heart!
