Peace in Times of Change

The Divine is so much more than words can capture.  Its nature is seen in the changing seasons, the storms, the rainbows, flowers, leaves and daylight returning year after year and it is evident in the consciousness of its reality.  It resides within each one of us.  Its nature is our true nature as we are made of it too.

This Divine mystery that is living as my life understands the shifting sands of time much better than I. Its wisdom orchestrates the universe with grace and power.  Every cell of my body resonates with its wisdom, doing just what it needs to do to keep my body working at its best. Each breath comes and goes automatically, and with trust in this breath I begin to see the bigger picture that the Divine is expressing in me and all around me.

Like the ocean with turbulent waves on the surface, below the surface is calm, deep, and peaceful.  Our mind is immersed in this divine flow of energy only obstructed by our focus on human circumstances which sometimes create imbalance.  So I focus on releasing any obstructions to allowing this divine flow to have its way with me.  I listen to its intuition as I go about my day trusting it to guide me to calmer waters.

Grateful knowing that this Living Spirit abides within me and all those around me, allows me to feel serene and confident regardless of what appears in my experience.

And with this gratitude I release this prayer to the workings of those spiritual laws that have already made it so.

And so it is.  Amen
