Do you have any of the symptoms of inner peace? Such as an increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen? Or a loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others? Saskia Davis offers a list of symptoms on her website http://symptomsofinnerpeace.net/Authors_Website/Home.html
It makes great reading … I love “frequent bouts of smiling” but then maybe the Three Year Old is to blame for that one! Amongst the blogs I follow there are many of you expressing appreciation for peace, beauty, awareness, non-duality, an appreciation for life as it is.
I love to read Rachel’s poetry and right now I am expecting some poems to arrive in the mail, as part of her project to send her beautiful words out to whoever is waiting for them. This is an exercise in trust, trusting that our actions are in the flow of life in a way beyond the understanding of mind and reason. We are all connected and I am confident that wherever I take Rachel’s poems will be the right place for the right person to find them! One will definitely be in Ireland and the other may be in France, or somewhere else on our forthcoming trip. Read about it on her blog, ‘be whole now‘ you might be one of her poem carriers too. Don’t miss this post with feedback from someone who found a poem Rachel left in a park in New York.
Tom of ‘onlyhereonlynow‘ is a fairly new blogger who writes brilliantly about his Zen path, his terrifying struggles with negative thinking, and the bliss he also experiences … you might like to read his latest post on running … he says how when we are totally absorbed in our actions “peace comes upon us”.
Beth of simplyblessed writes about non-judgement today; NamasteConsulting reminds us that Buddhism asks us to go beyond the self, not to perfect the self (oh what a relief every time we remember this one!), and restinginawareness suggests spending some time in silence on retreat.
Implicado shares photos of a statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe, erected in the place where she appeared, one of those events that the rational mind has no explanation for! I have had her image for many years, one of my Divine Feminine talismans. Robin of Life in the Bogs quotes Gunilla Norris: “Silence is our deepest nature, our home, our common ground, our peace. Silence reveals. Silence heals.” as she leads you on quiet walk of radiant beauty through The Bogs. Suitablefish sweeps us into non-dual looking with her ‘infusions’ and images, and there are so many more of you beautiful bloggers who are showering us with transcendent photos, with your perfect words, I just wish I could hug you all!! If you like this post perhaps I can share more blogging treasures with you again soon. Let me know, would you like more?
