Last Sunday, we lit the Advent candle for Peace. Peace is not the absence of war or the cessation of hostilities, but peace is the way of being, a consciousness of mind that is not dependent on any outside circumstance. Inner Peace is an awareness that the One Power and the One Presence is at work and that all is well. When we live from this understanding and this place of peace, nothing can rock our boat or throw us off-kilter. To the rational mind and the relative world, this peace makes no sense – but to the truth student, this is the only way to live.
Eric Butterworth wrote, “Things may happen around you, and things may happen to you, but the only things that matter are the things that happen in you.” This week, we practice keeping our thoughts and energy on our business, clearing our minds and hearts of judgement and worry, creating the realm wherein peace reigns forever.
Join us this Sunday as we light the candle for Love!
