Each day I am confronted with challenges . . .
• which voice do I listen to
• how do I shut out all the chaos
• what holds my focus
• who directs my steps
• when should I fight, retreat, stand still
Challenges with outside forces and challenges with inside forces that seem to have me constantly being blown about like a ship looking for that “anchor” to hold me steady or that “rudder” or a “tiller” to set my direction — daily challenges like huge waves overwhelming me and threatening to send me to the bottom of murky, deep waters.
As I feel propelled ahead mindlessly on my lifepath, I realize I must start with the end! Where do I want to end up, what is my desired destination?
SO, my first need is for an anchor – something to hold me in place while I explore the inside of me for an answer to the “where” question and I am immediately aware of the answer . . . PEACE! My anchor: find my place of PEACE.
YES! Peace comes from an awareness of provision and protection, something bigger than me and wiser and stronger . . . step inside and see where I came from, what I have come through, how did I survive times in the darkest pits, who am I now? . . . all of those questions should bring me to PEACE because I AM HERE NOW and that can only be by some power beyond my understanding. PEACE because I could not possibly have come to this point by my own “smarts” and whatever or whoever has sustained me to this point will do the same as I seek to find that source of provision and protection beyond SELF, beyond EGO . . . my anchor, my PEACE on my lifepath is the obvious unseen power that has brought me here, now.
PEACE . . . an anchor as I contemplate my path . . .
