Inspirational Prose: I am at Peace
I am at peace when I pull back from my impulses and fears, slowing down the churning of emotions and thoughts bubbling and rising inside of me. I am at peace when I notice what is around me: the gentle rain nourishing the soil outside my apartment; the deepening calm as the sun sets, casting shadows on the trees and houses; the internal tranquility that radiates outward as I relax into my chair, pondering the richness of ideas pouring across the pages that welcome me without expectations or desires. I am at peace when I can accept that there is nowhere to go, because I am already there, and nothing new to unearth, as everything is available if I just open my eyes. I am at peace experiencing the delight of rediscovering myself everywhere on this earth and knowing there is nothing I need to change.
