I wish you peace today, my friend. Things going on right now in the world are heavy and maybe even paralyzing, and you might find it hard to draw a deep breath. Your soul might feel jangled – not only from our country’s politics, but also from the chill, the darkness, the traffic, and of course the holiday stresses that abound this time of year. I wish you peace today.
I wish you peace today, my friend. I wish you a peace so encompassing that it unjangles your soul and softly strokes it. I wish you a peace that you can breathe in deeply and immediately sense in your peace-deprived cells. I wish you a peace that feels like a warm cat purring beside you, a warm cat whose purrs reverberate deeply within your own body, a warm cat that you allow yourself to feel despite your inner worries.
I wish you peace today, my friend. A peace which reverberates within you and mends some of those painful wounds in your heart. A peace which pours like a silver balm onto you and soothes your worries and fears, which allows you to hold those worries and fears in peace. A peace which, for now in this moment, makes your eyes soften and your lips give a small half-smile.
I wish you peace today, my friend. A peace so deep, so profound, so full, that your heart expands and your breath relaxes. A peace so lovely that you are utterly at peace, even in this moment, especially in this moment. A peace so peaceful that your very being radiates it, your very being radiates it, yes, your very being radiates it.
I wish you peace today, my friend. A peace within which you can raise your head and see the frenzy about you of holiday busy-ness and world unsettledness and yet your limbs are relaxed. Your back and shoulders exhale as if in a big sigh all the burdens they’ve been carrying. You sink into your chair as you read this and you raise your head as if in a dream, you give a big sigh and the tension leaves your body.
I wish you peace today, my friend. A peace within which lies the knowledge that there is time later to check off the items on your to-do list, but right now, in this moment, you are sheathed in silver light. You are sheathed in silver light and the light enters your very cells, it enters your DNA, it is shimmering and radiating. As if in a dream, you see this radiance surrounding you and as if in a dream, you see its source. You see its source and your heart expands to contain it and you raise your head and peace fills you and fills you and fills you. It fills you and expands out of you and your breath contains it, your sweet breath exhales this peace, you exhale your own sweet peace and the peace buoys you, it buoys you and fills you. You look about you as if in a dream and your peace fills you.
Peace fills you and it fills you. Peace coats your senses, it brims out of your eyes, your mouth, your ears. It is enveloping you, it is containing you, it is within, it is without.
It is yours with a breath, with a heartbeat, with a sigh.
It is yours.
My friend, it is yours.
