Through each stage of Life there are triumphant surprises, and stormy days. Things can unexpectedly come at us from out of the blue. The more we buy into the scenarios that Life throws at us, the less in control we begin to feel.
Inside each one of us is a comfort zone, a place where peace exists, where calm prevails and the soul can flourish. This center is not influenced by the fluctuations of Life……this part of ourselves sees the Greater Picture and Purpose of why we are here. The place where the past, the present, and future are totally understood. It is where we understand that the Purpose of our living is not based upon how many cars or houses we own….how much money we have in the bank, or where the hot restaurant in town is. The center is where true value reigns.
Peace of mind is a strange concept. We can’t buy our way there, but so many until their dying breath, reach for it. Without it we walk around feeling that something is missing. While we walk around on the ground, we fall prey to the rules that circle us. Once we enter the center of ourselves, everything makes sense. The center helps us rise above the clouds and see the Total Picture. Above the clouds is where the air is fresh, the sky is blue…..it is where we can spread our wings. One with Earth, one with the Universe, one with God.
How do we get there? Well, if you’re there, you don’t need for me to tell you. If not, find a quiet place, and ask yourself, “Why am I here?” and “How can I leave this world better than when I came?” Because at the end of our days, it’s the Love we gave that we will be remembered for.
Keep a bird’s eye view,
love, Jennifer Avalon
