Become like a cat or a puppy, cute and adorable without trying.

Become like a flower, confident in its beauty, whether it’s a rose or a sunflower.

Become like a tree, lofty yet grounded.

Become like the sun, warm and generous.

Become like the breeze, cool and refreshing.

The Stream of Peace

White-Lotus

There is a continuous stream of peace running in the background,

quietly, it runs, in the background,

drowned by the noise in the foreground.

.

It is a clear, peaceful stream flowing,

unobstructed, unconditioned, pure,

unaffected by the turbulence around it.

.

Peacefully and joyously constant, it remains

oblivious of anything else – aware only of itself and its purity,

quietly, it flows . . .

.

Within this peace is joy, within this joy is love,

peace, joy and love – all in one – untouched, uncontaminated,

innocent: knows no regrets, no blame, no sin, no karma.

.

A steady stream . . .

a source of strength, a fall back, a respite from it’s opposite –

the ever-shifting, tumultuous, raging river of the manifest world.

.

It is certainty where there is uncertainty.

It is order where there is disorder.

It is the light where there is darkness.

.

This is where we want to be.

It is heaven – undisturbed peace, true love, lasting happiness.

It is God – constant, cannot be taken away, never abandons, never fails.

.

It is ever present . . .

It is enlightenment.

And it lies in wait to be uncovered.

.

A steady stream running in the background

drowned by the noise in the foreground.
