Peace reached me, like a whiff of perfume, as I learned.
Learned that we make difficulty harder, by believing so in our heads, learned that their are lessons everywhere, that submission and surrender are really key.
I know many a wise friend, will read this and smile at me. Sometimes we are like little children, lost in make believe fears and worries and projections of the future, lost in judgment and barriers.
And that is, exactly what it just is. All worries, all these false beliefs – make believe.
What of peace and joy did I learn today?
– The world isn’t divided. My own judgment creates divides, in and around me.Compassion is really key.
– Some of us seek external approval but we really just need to be at peace, with ourselves.
– The core of every person is beautiful. We hide it in our fears and dramas.
– The way may be hard as my mind will trouble me, but I will watch it and be aware. Awareness is vital.
As I embraced my own learning, a beautiful fragrance reached me.
‘The fragrance of faith’. A very sweet cousin pointed out, that our peace is often related to how much faith we have, how much faith we practice, how much faith we embody in ourselves and in God.
So true. When I pray from my heart, when I truly surrender and trust, when I stop struggling with the moment , there is peace, much , much peace.
‘Peace is God’s perfume’, a dear reader said.
I trusted, I knew that even though this moment is hard, its still good, I wrote in my gratitude journal everyday and I surrendered. I stopped struggling and trying to find answers and solutions. I decided to let it all go. Just sit back and watch God take care of everything.
And I found the perfume. The scent that touches our heart, the fragrance that elevates the soul, the aroma that reaches into our very cells.
Simple, beautiful, ecstatic- Faith. I do hope am able to have this scent mark my way, through every ebb and fall, till it is all-that remains.
With much gratitude,
