Seek That Peace


Seek that peace.

That peace that awaits all whom be but still and at rest.

Seek an inner sanctuary.

That springs forth as a breathe.

As a whisper.

As a feeling of deep contentment.

A contentment that comes from being in the now.

For now is real.

Past and future are mere constructs of the human ego.

Be in the present moment and feel at ease.

Be in the present moment and feel the breathe of living.

Be in the present moment and feel loved.

Be in the present moment and be love incarnate in a human form.

Be in the present and be free of both past and future.

Now be still and be at peace.
