Hello friends, enjoy your Sunday. Whether it be coffee or something else enjoy the flavor of the day. Grace and peace to you all.
Canada is celebrating 15 years of same-sex marriage today. Here’s to all those people who are living their best lives with the ones they love. Grace and peace to all who have that freedom to love freely and openly. Love is indeed Love!
Life is about joy and pain even when you have faith in a higher power. Easy times come with difficult times. Faith helps you deal with it all. I am sure other things can too like community and family. I can say that my faith has helped me be a better person and to love more. Everyone has something that can get them through this very tough thing called living in reality.
My goodness its a wild and crazy world we are in. I can speak from experience the USA is full of chaos right now. Just go on the blogosphere or social media where people are bearing witness to how things are where they live. The year 2020 has been a time unlike any other in history where a whole lot of things are going down.
The question is where does one go to find some peace? You know to get away from the calamity of things. My priest posed the question about finding peace in your life this morning and in a Zoom meeting the answers were very personal and unique.
Some go into nature, some read, some will retreat to a favorite place if possible. There is a spiritual component where some will find prayer and meditation comforting. Worship or group gatherings can be helpful too. Being in tune with ones higher power can help calm the mind and soul. Yoga and other practices can benefit the mind and body simultaneously.
It’s true that people are overstimulated and overexposed to bad news and finding peace from that means turning off the TV and getting away from devices (yes that is hard for me to do).
Finding peace can be a simple thing if you let it. Getting out of your headspace and allowing your physical body to relax can help one unwind. Self care is important whatever that looks like to you.
Peace like a river, peace from turmoil, peace from the demands of life and peace that surpasses understanding, nirvana wherever one can find quiet for a time might help solve a lot of problems in the world. Being intentional about it is the key.
Peace to you all my dear friends.
I believe in the equality of man; and I believe that religious duties consist in doing justice, loving mercy, and endeavoring to make our fellow-creatures happy.Thomas Paine
It is through breathing we all have life. A breath is a connection to the world and to our spirit. The next breath you take is a gift and the next one and so forth. Everything that has breath should cry out when there is injustice in the world. Our breath means we are continuing to fight the good fight. The voice we have comes from that breath that goes deep into our bodies and soul. Everyone should have the right to breath freely and without persecution. Thank you creator God for each breath I take. My friends, breathe today and love your neighbors and yourself.
Love includes much justice, peace, reconciliation.
Love and like are different things.
