Be at peace

Be at peace in this moment!

Your thoughts can easily yank you headfirst out of the here and now, away from the sensations of the body, the feelings of the heart, and the energy of emotion to a world inside your head. That world contained in your cranium can become a battle ground, an argument with yourself, a roller coaster of worry…

Contained in your seemingly thick skulls are enough worried thoughts and anxious ideas to hijack your peaceful nature, to kidnap your peace of mind and well being.  They can get you caught up in the never ending loop of your brain on worry: “What did he mean by that?”  “There isn’t enough…”  “Why was she so angry?”  and on and on and on…

Let yourself relax. Don’t take yourself so seriously! Laugh and smile enjoy the healing energy that laughter brings.  Pause for a moment and notice the golden sunlight dancing on the leaves of a nearby tree, the shifting dappled shade beneath. Enjoy the feeling of the breath entering and leaving your body, the rise and fall of the belly.

Pay attention to the here and now and most moments in your life will be peaceful and serene.
