I’m pondering the nature of peace this evening….
I’m thinking the kind that allows one’s body to rest, mind to relax and soul to expand in the way only meditation can bring on, or great love.
And at the same time I consider Mr. Hammarskjold’s assertion and my mind does cartwheels and somersauts with consideration at its peak.
Never, “for the sake of peace and quiet,” deny your own experience or convictions.
I know only that I could never deny my experiences of life nor my convictions…..but oooh how I do twist and turn as I shift and change my world view as new ideas enter my periphery, with experience and the passing of time.
I shall this way be forever engaged, forever curious, forever young even though my body will one day crumble and fall with the weight of all this thinking and of course pesky gravity….which does though keep me grounded despite my soul’s incessant wanderings.
I am in love with it all….and we know what love is…the ability to be full of wonder, curiosity and acceptance of what is.
