The Path of Peace

Love, give us light when we are in darkness and in the shadow of death to guide our feet into the way of peace.
I am writing to remind you of things you already know. Darkness descends when you have been emotionally triggered—those times when you are caught up in a reaction and feel like a victim of someone else’s unskillful behavior.
Unless in the case of abuse or neglect, to gain clarity of vision requires naming your feelings for what they are—a reaction to being triggered. This removes the blame from anyone else and creates space for prayerful inquiry and honoring your emotions. Ask for wisdom, and you will receive it. Love will guide you into the path of peace.
Remember, this moment is an opportunity to connect to Love, and therefore, to live into the fullness of who you are.
As always, do what best awakens you to love,
Your Inner Wisdom
