My word of Intention today is Peace.
Wow! What a blessing of the day.
Imagine your mind telling you that you can’t tail gate in traffic, or honk, or yell and flip the bird towards people who just cut you off, etc. You can’t get annoyed in the stores. You can’t be in a hurry unnecessarily. Only smiles given, while smiling at the world of humanity. Only breathing in the wonderful thought of how wonderful it is to be alive. It is humbling and beautiful as well. When you slow down and think about our own actions as well as other as they interact with you.
The most unpleasant interactions come from a moment of fleeting peace. Perhaps that’s what it feels like to be drowning. An overwhelming fear of what’s to come. Because life isn’t preforming as we plans it, we become angry and mad at the world. To bad there are other people in that world, or so our thoughts go. Perhaps that is the feeling that we have when peace is hoped for, but none can be found? Like someone drowning, we grasp onto acting out without thinking. And so our actions fuel tensions. While we struggle to hold onto something, to find peace within, we apply anything but time tested acts that foster positive results.
It seems that peace is something we can give to ourselves by acting peacefully towards everyone we come in contact with no matter what we are personally going through at the time. It’s only then, we can surely hold onto that prodigious peace as it comes to us, not as we rush head first forward in pursuit of peace, pursuing it into the great unknown. Peace is that quiet moment in time that gives you the ability to choose, and make better choices un-distracted. The thing with the unknown, it seems all to loud, temptingly wonderful, until we hear the crack of thin ice!
I hope I do that word again and again and again! Because peace is given so rarely to ourselves. So even when we seek to give ourselves the best life has to offer, somehow peace is never thought of.
