peace – february

April 23, 2012

the flock year

There has been so very little peace of mind this month. There has been a level of discomfort and unease that I just can’t locate the source of. Working too hard and too much. Sleep has not come easily.

I get peace of mind
The moment I ask my mind
To stop running
And I ask my heart
To start singing.

“Peace is man’s greatest and highest blessing. Man thinks that he can get everything with prosperity; but if he is wanting in peace, then he is the worst possible beggar. We say “peace of mind,” but actually we do not have peace in the mind. By staying in the mind, we can never have even a glimpse of peace. When we want peace, we have to go beyond the realm of the mind. How can we go beyond the mind? It is through our constant aspiration. That aspiration will enable us to collect the mind like a bundle and throw it into the sea of the heart. Then we will see that our mind, vital and physical—our whole existence—will be inundated with inner peace.”

Sri Chinmoy

Peace can not thrive where humility and gratitude and self-care do not reside.

Whatever we are waiting for – peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance – it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
