The Peace of God is stronger than my self-constructed obstacles to it. I open my mind to Holy Communion with the Divine. Brought to union with God, obstacles crumble. Peace stands victorious. I am that Peace.
Polish the mirror The only thing between me and the glorious light of God is the dust on my mirror. Ram Dass says we do spiritual practices not to get to other states, but to get in touch with who we already are, to clear the dust from the mirror, to come more fully into the present moment.
The sun is always shining on all of us, but I cannot see it through the clouds. That glory is always there. When faced to this light of peace, my obstacles blow away like dust in the wind.
A song by Guru Ganesha says it well:
“May the light of a thousand suns shine upon you
Live the Life from grace that you were meant to
Carry the light of God’s Love into this world
Be the open heart the earth longs for”
