enjoyable in life than waking up to the sounds of birds chirping in the hedges outside my bedroom window :-). Then walking across my room to look out across the hedges and beyond to the rolling countryside. Ah how beautiful. And breathtaking. I may not have much worldly wise. Even the roof over my head doesn’t belong to me as I’m repeatedly told. And may be sold. But what I do have no one can take away and that’s the sound of my children’s laughter. Friends who love and support me. The sound of music blasting on a Saturday morning for me to abundantly dance to:-). Limbs and arms that move. The ability to still breathe sweetly in and out. Eyes to see nature in all its finest.
And a heart still big enough to love and forgive all those that try to offend even when they doesn’t succeed. Because that’s the nature of love and abiding peace. Nothing offends. One lives and love on. Because you recognise that the offender do have a nature similar to your own and that like opposing arms and limbs on one body, we must all learn to get along with each other. The other person is only acting out of a place of fear or the sum of all their subjective and objective life’s experiences. Love conquers all. Love survives all. Love covers a multitude of sins. Love like hope springs eternal.
And no matter what happens day by day, you too must make a choice to hold unto your inner peace. Start by stilling your mind then your heart and your emotions. See the bounty that nature provides and use it to your will and good pleasure. Sniff a flower. Go for a walk. A run. Sit under a tree and close your eyes. Breathe freely in and out and just listen. Spread a blanket out and lay down and look up at the sky and stars above. And no matter what, keep wearing a smile. Life’s not all that bad even if your personal experience at the moment dictate otherwise. Someone somewhere would still kill to have that life of yours,:-). Start small. Start big. But whatever you do. Maintain an open pathway to peace. Life in all its contents is still amazingly beautiful:-). God bless you.
