Do You Have Serenity?

  

 

Serenity is what we find in the midst of unrest.

Serenity is something we make, create, and emanate.

We find serenity when we are at peace.

 

Discussion  …

To be serene, to be at peace, to find peace is the pursuit of many. Yet the more we pursue it the less likely are we to find it for peace and or serenity are not to be found but rather to be awakened. If we wait for our lives to run smoothly to experience peace, we will never have peace. Peace is not about smooth experiences it is about how we smooth out our experiences through our state of peace.

Serenity is what we find when we are at peace.

And we are at peace when … when we are at peace.

To be serene is to be in a state of clear, peaceful, calm and to be joyous.

            When we trust and surrender to our higher being, when we walk in alignment with our personal truth we engender the state of serenity and this puts us in the path of peace. As a serene being we will emanate this quality and as a consequence attract serene and peaceful elements to our existence. As an emanation we emit this to others and peace follows us throughout our experiences and interactions.

 

Reflection …

What are your beliefs regarding serenity? What is your experience of serenity?

How can you be more filled with peace today? In what ways can you share peace and serenity with others? Do you pursue peace and serenity? How do you pursue it? Do you wish for more peace? Can you feel serene in the midst of chaos? How well do you smooth out your experiences?

 

Peace In The Mirror

Peace is what we find when we look in the mirror and say, “I am at peace with you.”

Lake Of Tranquility

I found the peaceful lake within my soul

My love
… is now a gentle thing

the
lion’s roar no longer

Tears
from the heart.

It has
been replaced

by a
sweet gentle dove

happy to
float in the lake

of tranquility.

The Forest

 

The forest …
… where the blizzard blows
……where the rain is sudden
………..where the trees have arms that reach in and grab at life
…………..where the clouds sprinkle and shift
… ……………….where the owl sat as a guardian as we nestled below the stars
……………………where the wind murmurs tribal mantras
………………………..where the moss hides a multitude of sins
…………………………..where the creatures be-friend lone Homo Sapiens
……………where the path winds up and into and over and frees the lostI’ve seen the forest…
…..and I sit alone
….…and the silence is all
………and the ears hear only the leaves falling
…………and the morning light comes in streams
……………..and the undergrowth smells of eons past
………………..and the brook sings a melancholy melody
……………………and the eagle leaves a shadow upon our tangled dreams
…………………….…and the fungi pays homage to the cycle of life
………………………………and flowers come into bud
…………..and I’ve felt all its favours…and felt its decayI am the forest…
….it breathes beneath my skin – whispering breeze
….…it rushes through my veins – burgeoning river
…….…it houses the owl – cloistered nest
…………..it whispers to the villages – lost legacy
…………..…it grows gnarled roots from the soil of my longing – verdant decay
………………..it finds life within my folds –rising sapling
………………… it spreads a canopy across my frame – memory’s shadow
…………………….it murmurs to the harkening ear – reaching bark
………… I’ve felt the journey within its neglected heart … it gives grace to the lost.See More

My Musings on Happiness

Summom Bonum

It is the summom bonum of all human aspirations to seek happiness.
Happiness is a place where we we are at peace.
We arrive at peace when we surrender.
And we surrender when we trust.
And we trust when we have a faith.
faith – trust – surrender – peace – happiness

~~

You cannot attain happiness it attains you …

but only when you surrender …

everything –

 sadness, worry, grief, fear, anxiety, anger, resentment.

~~


Go on – I dare you – let happiness attain you.
