Peace is an effect. It is the result of the quality of confidence you have in your state of being. It is of a resounding harmony. It reverberates against disorder and chaos. Peace is an active resonance in your mind and body that is as close to the nature of absolute truth as can possibly be.
There is an infinite amount of chaos or molecular randomness that resides constantly in the environment. But even chaos is governed by underlying patterns of ordered molecular motion. So, the momentum going forward is always and forever truth, order, and light, irrespective of the seeming unpredictability of chaos.
To the divergent force associated with chaos, the mental energy that resounds as peace is its antithesis.
The activity of consciousness remain deep and full, as it actively opposes lack and soaks up information– nature abhors a vacuum. The choices are substantial, otherworldly and earthly, and the integrity of consciousness clings to whatever brings peace. But peace has a noticeable pattern of wisdom and understanding that is both innate and self-evident because what brings us peace directly impacts our quality of life.
Lighting a candle or building a small fire is a peaceful thing. It calms. It evokes a sentimentality. Could it be that it reminds us of a simpler life? That we connect to memories of small quite gatherings lit by the warmth of a fire- A time before the modern unnatural- at home with the quiet flicker of candles or a wood fire. A time of comfort in communion or in solitude.
Putting flame to dance for a moment, in the quiet of our presence, as it lights up the darkness, is akin to revelation. When we are revealed, we are actively in concert with lighting up the darkness in our immediate presence. This active belief is like our basic survival instinct, and it connects to what brings us peace. Without that which brings us peace, we are self-destructive.
Distant affixed memories of what brings us peace automatically resonate with us. Therefore, relax into that which brings peace and concurrently connect back to that light which brings us life.
