Finding Peace Amidst Chaos

Finding Peace Amidst Chaos: Insights from Akashic Records and Ancient Wisdom

silhouette meditating in chaos Wow, it’s May 1st already, I’m not sure how it’s possible that the year is flying by so quickly and yet it is.

My normally busy brain is nearly on overload with all that I see going on in the world and in our nation. The challenge of being informed, of being true to who I know myself to be, to attempt to be a source of love and light in the world some days is a difficult outcome to achieve.

So, as I’m prone to do, I turned to the writings of people I know to be incredibly smarter than I could ever be as guidance for perhaps different ways that I could consider what’s going on and, maybe most importantly, my reaction to it.

I recognize that there is so incredibly much that is not my job to control, or to direct. But I do believe that it is incumbent upon each of us to do whatever we can to help peace and love and light gain a foothold and to overcome the forces that thrive on anger, conflict, and separation.

So, I’m going to share some of the pieces I’ve gone back to that helped me try to stay in a place of gratitude, peace, awe, and optimism. I know that the world has turned on its axis without my hands on the wheel for a very long time. I know that there is a larger picture than I am able to see, that there is a divine plan that I’m not privy to, so I guess that makes my job to just be who I am, who I came here to be, not to be a part of the problem but rather to strive to be a part of the solution, whatever that is.

Lao Tzu

“If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.”

It has been my long-standing wish and belief that it is possible for all the people of the world to come to an understanding that there is no US vs. Them, because there is in fact, only us.

That is my prayer, that is my hope, that is the image that I carry in my mind.

I will close with this: one of my favorite prayers.

Please pray with me:

Peace Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

meditation rocksLord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
