Express Peace. Music. 8.

Music Peace

StoweGood – Peace Purveyors

Attended a low-profile, high-energy, keyed-down, revved-up concert by Stowe Good last night at Unity Church of the Hills. Proof that Peace appears as music, music of every form.

The powerful duet of Stowe Dailey and Karen Taylor Good shared songs from the heart. They sang memory movers. They roused passion and brought us calm. They poked humor at life and drew humor from life.

And the beauty of all that: Peace.

Consider the beauty of these lines:

“Blind me to all separation
I might see.
Tear down the walls,
Let judgment fall away.
Let my heart break open today.”

Here’s the point: Peace is where we find it. And we find it where(ever) we may look because Peace is with us, is in us, is us. Music is a perfect all-around-us source. Listen to the music. Listen to the Peace.

Good friend, GOD,
you are the music in my heart.
The music plays to me the song of Peace
and that is Love and that is Joy
and that is Faith and that is Thanks.
The music sings to me the Peace I AM.
Your music is countless rhythms,
and notes and words.
Your music is blessings, and
blessings your music conveys.
Blessings my heart sings and hums and dances.
Your music flows through ears
to mind, through mind to heart,
through heart to Spirit Peace
and that I AM.
And so it is.
Amen. Amen.

Expressing Peace. Alex. 7.

Peace expressed

Alex

Walking Alex last night was peace expressed. Knowing his  hard tug on the leash–faster, farther. The abiding his stopping, waiting for his diligent sniff and search at mail box base and driveway’s edge.

The knowledge that this is not a chore but a blessing. The gift of realizing this is not something that I have to do, but something that I get to do. The Peace that the late night breeze, the insects whirring around corner streetlight, and Alex deciding it’s OK to turn and head for home.

Thank you, GOD.

Perfect Presence, Perfect Power, Perfect Peace,
we are blessed to give care to others.
Peace comes from seeing to a pet, comforting an animal companion
that brings us joy.
Your Being is the dog or cat, the friend that gives us love
and beckons our love in return.
Your Blessing is the late night walk,
the hungry eyes,
the happy greeting.
The Peace from those sweet moments
expresses your Presence
in every element of life.
Beautiful Peace.
And so it is.
Amen. Amen.

Enjoy Peace. Express Peace.

Expressing Peace. Light. 6

light peace

Peace of Light

Light.

Peace.

Light is Peace and Peace is Light.

The Peace of God is shining in me now.

This was an affirmation at Unity Church of the Hills last Sunday. I love that it affirms what I’m exploring during these 100 Days Expressing Peace. I want to expand it this way:

The Peace of God is shining in me always.

At times I feel that shining as a sun ray reflected off a brass button. Other times it is a candle casting its soft puddle in a corner of my Self. Some instances show brilliance as a grand-opening spotlight shooting its beam into the sky. Still other times it is the brilliant sun filling every space with morning brightness.

The Peace is always shining. It can only be shining for it is constant, eternal Light. Darkness is the absence of light. As GOD is Omnipresence, there can be no absence. There can be no darkness.

The Peace of God is shining in me always.

Shining Spirit
the Light you are shines in me
shines through me
shines from me for One
for All.
Whether gentle as a firefly
or brilliant as a thousand suns
your Light for me is Peace.
There is no darkness, no shadow.
I know and love the peace of seeing You
as everything I see.
I know and love the peace of shining
from the inside out
your Presence
as everything I AM.
Shining in me. Always.
And so it is.
Amen. Amen.

Enjoy Peace. Express Peace.
