As the clouds move gradually across the sky, my eyes are fixated on the sunset and, I sit and ponder the meaning of life. In this moment I am at peace. My mind is calm and my body is still. I need nothing and feel complete — whole. I know the answer to this perplex question is simple because all of life’s questions tend to only become complicated after racing through the mind of mankind. I closed my eyes and sincerely asked the Universe within my temple to show me the answer. And the answer, my friend, is peace.
Peace is a simple answer to the meaning of life question, yet attaining it may be a challenge that can take a lifetime (or many). Every individual has many lessons to learn throughout life in order to come to a place free from their perceived reality. We must find a happy balance in all aspects of life. Every new situation can bring us back to a place of reflection which may or may not allow for inner growth. The actions that each of us take have to be well understood deep within our soul.
Peace is achieved through connecting to a higher power while still having the capability to live in this body during this time. Through meditation we often get to experience true inner peace. However, the true test when one becomes attuned to a higher state of consciousness is being able to maintain that state of mind. Our spirit must be awakened through love to truly allow for peace to be present.
The meaning of life is peace. Allow peace to enter you, and into each of your brothers and sisters through you. For this is your time for peace to be present.
