The way to a peaceful life is to notice the perfection in Spirit’s world and in ourselves, and nurture that perspective. When you look out with wide eyes of wonder and appreciate all that you see as a gift from Spirit, including your own life working in harmony with nature, you will know what a poet means.
Rather than seeing ourselves as connected to this world, we often feel we are in it to push it around and make it conform to us. Rather than accepting it, we twist it to feed our ego, creating havoc, imbalance, and what we call imperfection. Then the ultimate irony, we blame Spirit for the very conditions we create out of the perfection that is our gift from Spirit. As a poet I say, be at peace, don’t judge the world, observe it, be it, one with it. Don’t try to straighten it out. Don’t manufacture problems, be in awe of the perfection of it all.
Give yourself a gift of five minutes of contemplation in awe of everything you see around you. Go outside and turn your attention to the many miracles around you. This five-minute-a-day regimen of appreciation and gratitude will help you to focus your life in awe. Remind yourself that you are just as much a miracle as the lark and the snail. You, in fact, are what Spirit is doing.
Trust and value your own divinity as well as your connection to the all. Seeing Spirit’s work everywhere will be your reward…
