Peace is present within ourselves as we are honoring and giving thanks for the life that we have. This life has caused us and is causing us to be. It is something that precedes all our feeling and thinking. It is our conscious responsibility to allow this life to have unhindered expression through our hearts and minds and out through our body. In order for this to happen our emotional realm needs to be like still waters undisturbed by the cares of this world for the animating currents of the source our being to move across. Our mind’s responsibility is to be a guardian of our heart to keep the still waters. Our mind is to discern what matters and what does not. It needs to give value to that which keeps a tranquil heart. As it does peace is within our walls!
As we keep the word of the Lord central in our heart we are awake and alert to His integrity and nature. Oh if the disciples did not slumber in the Garden of Gethsemane something different may have occurred back then which could have changed the course of history. Everyday we have a chance to change the course of history as we are awake and alert to extending the name of the Lord on earth by the living of life of integrity. By meeting those times that arise when we are tired and the pressure seems to great just extending an hour can make all the difference!
If we are not having great peace then there is something to look at regarding our love for the law. The law that is not temporal rather the law that is eternal. We have been designed to function according to eternal law. Not a law that that is set by man a law that that has been set by God in the creation of this world as well as ourselves. This law involves how we hold in our hearts the qualities congruent with the nature of life that abounds in all the natural world. This law that causes grass to grow trees to reach to the skies and for new babies to be born. This law is the law of creation. It springs from the eternal source of love received by the womb of the truth. When we are feeling that lack of a sense of peace remember there is a law that governs all the natural world. Take note and appreciate this natural world with depth of feeling and you will return to abiding in the law and experiencing that great peace.
The word of the Lord is very pure. In order to know this our hearts must be untroubled. In order to have an untroubled heart it needs to be oriented in the eternal light of love constantly being emitted by our Lord and King. How we orient our hearts comes from mentally choosing the attitudes of thankfulness, appreciation, patience and praise. As we treasure these attitudes we can receive the pure word of the Lord that invigorates and gives perspective. With perspective we can see our temporal affairs in the light of the eternal fretting not letting time reveal all things in the living of life now.
