We hear it all the time, from friends and family. We even say it ourselves sometimes. I'm sooooo busy. It's true, we are busy people. Our lives are filled to the brim, over-packed, and scheduled to the max. And when that happens, when all the “To-Dos” build up, we often lose sight of what’s important.
We lose touch with ourselves, with love and compassion. Instead we get worried and stressed, and the stress stays with us in our bodies. When the body is tight and tense, it is harder to relax, to settle down and to be quiet. When we take the time to unwind we can feel the peace that God so wants us to experience.
This past Sunday, Pastor Jerry said that "God breaths on us" and into us the Holy Spirit and once filled, we experience peace. Not the simple kind of peace you find when someone is noisy and you ask them, “Can I have some peace and quiet, Please?” But the deep peace, deep within you peace, peace that fills us to the brim, utterly – peace that almost overwhelms us with its fullness. The fullness of God’s love - that kind of peace.
This week's practice will be about peace. Quieting ourselves enough to that we can feel God's peace, God's presence.
Blessings and namaste,
