Peace arises from love inside us.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

Moments of real peace are rare and precious. So much of life seems to interfere. We get busy; we get distracted; we become embroiled in conflicts minor and major. And peace seems elusive in the face of everyday existence.

We may tend to think of peace as arising from outer circumstances. A golden time in nature, the company of a loved one, or a sweet meditation or prayer session may spring to mind. If we ponder instances where we felt profoundly peaceful, we’ll discover a common thread to all the experiences: we felt deep love inside us.

Today’s message advises me that when I allow love to fill me, peace will surely follow. Love for another, love for nature, love for my life circumstances, love for all Creation—it matters not. What is important is that my love is free of conditions or judgment. Releasing any expectations I may hold, my love opens me to divine peace.

How about you? What brings you peace?
