We achieve a state of peace when we are in perfect balance. I find that reflecting on that one sentence to be so helpful. Perfect balance equals peace! E-Z; no problem–right? Today the Oracle reminds us of this simple truth and predicts favorable conditions for your life offering that caveat with it. Twilight! I love that time of evening and morning when there is a balance between the heavens and the earth—a magical time. When I think the word “peace”—that’s the image that comes to mind. And we see that in the image here. I used to have a paper route and for 3 years, when my I had babies at home, while they and my husband slept, I’d leave at 3 am daily (7 days a week) to deliver my newspapers. I didn’t want to put my infant in a daycare and opted for that way of adding to the family income for those years. Anyway, greeting the day as it was being born was a beautiful part of that job—breathtaking sunrises too. Another favorite time was calling the kids to come inside from their outdoor play as it began to get dark; but I’d linger there first, sitting outside for a while before calling them at dusk.
Yesterday at dusk my grandson and I were at the top of the mountain at 6,000 feet caught in the midst of a passing cloud at twilight time. (It was COLD up there too if you were wearing simple t-shirts which we were.) In those moments, my 13 year old grandson and I stood there together letting the fast-moving misty clouds pass all around us. Immersion in the mountain mist at twilight time!
I still carry that feeling within me now as I type this and hope to share it with you; let’s go there together in our minds.
Pulling this Kua for today’s cosmic communiqué as I have, is a validation of our mountain top experience of harmony, balance and perfection—those are 3 keywords to express the archetype of I-CHING Kua 11/Peace.
The still point of Peace is a blessing in which “all feels right with the world” and the outlook is positive and clear and a divine perspective is gained. The misty clouds of energy flowing past us on the top of the mountain at dusk yesterday as we closed our eyes and held out our arms to immerse ourselves in the mountain energy, reminded us about flow itself; the TAO. In those moments we were fully open to whatever experience came our way—we surrendered to the midst, the mountain, the moment!
Whatever your own situation is today, perhaps if you take a mental journey to the moments I’ve been describing, capture it and carry it with you, it will help you feel the peace too.
