I carry an inner peace. I am able to feel calm in the midst of storms. Recently I began to feel a growing agitation within. At first, I thought I’d allowed outside forces to disrupt my harmony. I realize we are each subject to a certain amount of negativity and chaos, and I was quick to blame my lack of serenity on that. Once I began to soothe my soul, I discovered it was my own lack of spiritual practice which had caused my unrest.
How simple it is to slip away from the things we need the most, and by things I don’t mean material means. I’m talking about meditation, prayer, solitude, rest, and whatever it might be that feeds or comforts one’s soul.
I suppose it could be said a spiritual life is as important to overall balance as an aligned spine is to physical health. Have you ever felt out of whack and realized you held the solution in the palm of your hand? Unclench your fist, and read the writings of your heart.
Here’s wishing you enough…
Enough time alone, and enough time with loved ones
Enough quietness to hear the voice within
Enough insight to see the beauty before you
Enough touch to feel the love surrounding you
Enough awareness to feel the wind in your face
Enough fortitude to stop long enough to enjoy the fragrance of the day
Enough sensitivity to taste the zest of life…
