sunday sip: tumult to peace

Watching the recent American debt crisis, I was reminded of how tumultuous our lives really are. There are waves of discord everywhere. Today, amidst feelings of anxiety and worry, I sat down with a candle breathing slowly and measuredly in and out. Om. Sa. And in doing so, I felt all of that tumult melt away, and that steady, comforting darkness within overtook everything. So I smiled and went about my day, sense of joy intact.
"Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without."

Join me for a cup.
