Finding Peace

I was woken up this morning by the sounds of a house being demolished a few streets away.  Yes, a few streets away.  The sound was so loud and disturbing.  I live in a block of units and there is a lot of space around my unit, which I love, but this also means that sounds are magnified.

How do I find my peace with all the noise going on!   Well, it wasn’t all that easy this morning, I was getting more and more annoyed.   Finally, I brought my attention back to my breath and started to relax my body and my thoughts.  I moved into my heart and connected with the peace within me that is always present.  After a few minutes I noticed that not only was I feeling relaxed but the noise outside had stopped  – ah, peace at last.  Well, only briefly from the outside, but for the peace within, that is my choice.

As I write this it is nearly noon and the noise outside has been ongoing for most of the morning but just now it has stopped.  Funny that isn’t it!  As I give my attention to peace inside myself I also affect my exterior world.   Silence is golden.    I breathe and relax and savour the moments of  deep connection within and without.

Are you connecting to the peace inside today?  xxxxxx
