What Peace May Come

Updated on May 22, 2012

In your most quiet of times, what do you think? Do you allow yourself silence? What peace may come in each moment? The moment now is when you open your heart and allow the earth's elegance to touch your heart.

I am moved so effortlessly by everything. I see wholeness now and I see the world as one. I wish I could stay in this state all the time. It's my time to retreat when I connect to oneness. Feel a pleasant emptiness. Watch the void. Do you see the world between the breath? That moment when the lungs empty, pause, and then fill with air. The breath, a simple act, is the life force of all that walk the earth.

Be mindful. Every moment is truly a treasure. Listen to the silence. Surrounding that grand silence I hear the rhythm of a crew of men with hammers, and behind that vibration are men creating. Now I listen to all the kids expressing joy in the loudest way running around playfully. Know with love they are being kids without restraint. Watch the baby's breath. Know his contentment.

Feel your own quietness as you walk in the the world. Do not let the mind create madness by thinking. Just be gentle and tender. Feel the world open, leaving behind all judgement of good or bad. The heart opens expanding to the vastness of space and surrenders to emptiness. Form and formless kiss with kindness.

What peace may come if we allow the vulnerability of this moment just to be as it is. Conflict requires resistance of any kind. An open heart gives birth to joy, love, happiness, and forgiveness. Forgiveness requires the utmost compassion. How can conflict prevail against open hearts? The open heart of the highest kind, with love and trust, allows the world to be.

      This poetic meditation is lovely and helpful, because it encourages us to find our own quietness. I am most impressed by you including the children in here---I have the most difficult time remaining peaceful or even just not overwhelmed when the noise level in my home is high. I want this magic all the time too, but sometimes it eludes me. Thank you for the beautiful reminder that is is always there waiting.

      Dyhannah, Every sentence you've written here is deep, inspirational, serene. Your words convey exquisitely the gift of presence. I especially love this sentence: "The moment now is when you open your heart and allow the earth's elegance to touch your heart." Awesome, beautiful.

      ....this is one of the best hubs I've come across in quite some time and I'll tell you why - there's a personal connection here between my life(style) and your beautiful words - I live but 100 feet from the lake and yes I can hear the silence - there is much yin and yang in my life by choice and if I want to stop the music - then all I have to do is go out and listen to the waves, the wind, nature's music - I would say I have the perfect balance - in fact I just watched a dvd called Hanna which featured the music of the Chemical Brothers and now after I leave this keyboard I will go outside onto my deck and across the road and down to the beach - there is a half moon right now over the lake and yes I will hear the silence ..... I will post this most beautiful hub which is dear to me to my Facebook page with a direct link back here. ontario canada lake erie time 11:15pm
