Is a day off really a day off. When we go on vacation, flying to another destination, or for that matter, going to the cottage. Is it really “free time”. Always there is the preparations,the planning, the packing. What is “free time” what does that mean, what does it imply. Does everything you do have to have a purpose? If you have a back yard, as an adult how often do you, yourself use it? I know gardeners garden, and children play but who tends the yards, cuts the grass, weeds the beds. There is always something to do. If it is a cottage, you have to open up the cottage, and while there,the same chores that are often performed at home in the city, or often repeated only now you are in a country setting. Life can be busy can’t it. Do you ever ask yourself what you are getting out of all this “busy”. There is no easy answer, no simple solution, because we are all so unique in our thinking and how we live our lives. This is what makes the world such a wonderful place. Like nature, we are an assortment of trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, minerals,rocks and living organisms, etc. etc. even the weather has its moods. It can dazzle, delight,scare and frighten us, we accept that is what it is, Why is it so difficult for us to accept the differences in others.
Freedom is a state of mind. Happiness is a state of mind. Our minds belong to each and everyone of us alone. No one can read our minds, nor can they change our minds. We own our thoughts, and our actions. We can share, but we cannot change anyone but ourselves. What is peace and tranquility to one, may not be to another. Challenges are a constant in our lives, when we see them as opportunities for growth, we are working at attaining peace in our own lives. Peace begins within.
Prayer of Protection
The light of God surrounds us
The love of God enfold us
The power of God protects us
The presence of God watches over us
Wherever we are God is, and all is well.
