Inspirational collection of poetry and short stroy
This novel is about a woman trying to deal with life and all of it's ups and downs while trying to maintain her sanity.
I am sitting here early this Saturday morning relaxing on the beach enjoying the sunshine. It warms me from deep within. “There is an old saying that you get out what you put in...”
And then we put our entire existence back into another needed lesson in faith. Sometimes, we will not just sit still and allow life to proceed on the course it is currently traveling, a day in the calm.
Instead of accepting a stress free and non–chaotic moment, we instead strain because there is nothing to stress over. To afraid of becoming complaisant thinking that we are not worthy if there is no disruption in our lives.
Sometimes, this is our blessing; a stress free and peaceful day with no interruptions. We must not forget that in the storm clarity is misplaced. It is disrupted by chaotic wind gusts and inner insecurities. How easily we forget that fear is not our ally.
Fear is a sign of confusion, hindering personal growth and a disruption or rational thinking. It is an enabler of anger an antagonist that provokes irrational behavior.
Anger is one of the most brutal of forces that will claim it‟s victim if he or she is not steadfast and firm in resolutions.
But in the calm of the storm [the center] at the eye, peace is reclaimed and faith holds harmony closely. It is just enough of a mustard seed of faith that is required to sustain the passing of the backend of the storm.
However, if one is willing to fast, forgive, and forget then the world truly becomes an oyster bed and peace becomes its priceless pearl. With this added wisdom and with the extra experience, clairvoyance is delivered during the passing of the storm‟s eye.
In this time of rest that is given was a time of calm and the silence is preordained to supply one with a wealth of knowledge. From this understanding a heart can unwind. Allowing a time for one to think and rest arming you for the next disturbance. When it comes you find acceptance within. This security helps you maneuver through the storm with open-mindedness and an answer of resolution.
In this process “You” learn something new concerning you. You learn that every obstacle that is put before you is not a crisis just a learning tool for growth.
I say that to write this...
I was for once blessed to have a peaceful moment. But the question that lingered in my mind on this particular day was in the negative. I thought of things to stress over. I became my very own stress manipulator meter. I started searching for anything to stress over. I had never lived a day without stress so I did not know how to live in peace.
However, I found no reason why I should be stressing. I just could not accept the calm and I could not find rest in a time of quietness.
