There is a word that I have always liked. The word is PACE. And it tends to present itself quite regularly this time of year, when life amps up a pace, with a pre-Christmas cheer race. Reminding me to pace myself.
And that’s when I link it to another meaning. One I like even more appreciatively. The Italian meaning, albeit pronounced differently, PACE, meaning, PEACE.
The PACE of PEACE.
Cutting back on complexity, and making it a time of meaningful simplicity, deliberately. And how it feels within. Vibrant. And life affirming.
That’s the Christmas Present.
A PEACE PACE. To appreciate the season, leading into, and beyond, Christmas.
Scheduling, to take account, and invite in, the Christmas loving feeling. That a PACE of PEACE can bring.
Being receptive to the art of slow, contentment, and deliberate savouring of the beauty of a PACE of PEACE. So that the brilliance of Christmas, and what it means, really, sets in.
Fitting PEACE in.
Because waiting for peace, for a later date, is less appealing, than feeling it right here. Leading up to, and throughout, Christmas. Embedding it into the scheme of things. So the wonder of joy moves in, for longevity. An idea worth considering.
Enjoying a PACE of PEACE, internally, with your family, your workplace, and your surroundings, as a possibility. Weaving, rippling, and mirroring it genuinely, for the rest of the year. Creating space for your PACE of PEACE to begin.
If you are finding the lead up to Christmas, and preparing for 2018, somewhat challenging. And wish to create a PACE of PEACE to appreciate the season more completely. Consider inquiring where, in your Mandala of Wholeness, it may be missing. And jot down some ideas on how you can bring it in.
Creating, a PACE of PEACE. In time, heart, mind, and relating. In activity, sociability, and energetically celebrating. Really appreciating, and radiating. Brings a Joy worth developing. So that you can carry it wholeheartedly, into a new year.
