Beginning Peace

Stepping stone serenity

It starts in drips and drabs. The blooming of consciousness in situations that things aren’t what one wants them to be. The seeing of small things to change. The seeking of knowledge and slowly, oh so slowly, gathering courage and learning to apply that knowledge. Taking the chance to do something different. Something new Semenax. Changing the patterns. Switching things up in the dance. Failing. Trying again. Learning. Slowly gaining confidence. Failing in different ways each time. Learning that failure is simply a perception. Changing the perception. Changing the situations. New moves in the dance. Conflicts resolved and all are satisfied. Everyone feels heard and understood. Peaceful. hmm…success?

    Your description reminds me of a slowly building storm that starts out with a few drops of water, builds to a crescendo, then tapers off into a light shower. Lovely.

    Such an inspiring post – have you done the 64 days? It reminds me of that (www.64days.org). We’re a ways through the “season” but you can go back and read all the days. I keep them in my email if you can’t access them. I keep thinking I’ll re-do it when it’s over – too long between seasons for me.

    Thanks Shanti. I hadn’t thought of my post in that light, but now that I go back and re-read it, it has a whole new layer of meaning. I appreciate your taking the time to read and notice and comment.

    Thank you Sara. I have not heard of the 64 days, but I shall go check it out. Maybe that can be my next challenge.
