Day Six Peace train series
Peace, what is it?
So if Peace is not our personality, the absence of war, escaping to a quiet location or having certainty about all of our questions, then what can it be?
My experiences of peace are all too often linked to the absence of difficult or trying circumstances.
At the individual level, when we feel pressured and anxious we might say to ourselves
‘I would have peace if…’
I were not so lonely,
if I could address my financial pressures,
if I were physically well,
if my family relationships were not in disarray,
if I was kinder, more generous, less self interested.
When these circumstances change, if they change, THEN I will have peace.
Can I say we might be waiting a long time! Circumstances come and go. If they dictate our internal condition then we are sure to chart a chaotic lifeline of peace.
Take time today to write about your own ‘if only’s’ and how you can use peace to let them go.
