Finding peace

Peace is within each of us. We just need to listen to our hearts.

I was at the busy intersection of Kingsway and E 15 th in Vancouver. Kingsway is a major artery of the city. I had never seen Tai chi performed outside of a class or a tranquil park. These practitioners of this ancient art were on a strip of sidewalk, oblivious to the traffic. I happened to snap these photos with my iphone between traffic lights.  (After I posted this, a special follower of this blog sent me a private email saying that she is a member of this society and that they go outside from time to time.  http://www.taoist.org/  The world is small indeed.  We are all connected.)

La paix, pace, Listen for it.  Search it out.

Made me stop and think. It’s easy to find peace in a quiet park, verdant, surrounded by nature. However much more tricky when vehicles are zooming past at 70 km per hour.

May we learn to shut out the un-necessary, the superfluous. Even when it is dangerously close. Even when it’s loud.  We must listen to our inner voices of reason.   Truth is out there and inside.
