Let There Be Peace

I am both a moment and an eternity.
I have but the present moment to call my very own.
In the wink of an eye it is gone, only to be replaced by another moment.
Yet, it is in this moment, that I have my joys, my pain, my being and my becoming.
I am also an eternity.
I carry in my present moment
everything I went through in the past, my heartaches, my happiness,
the lessons I learned and the regrets I carry.
I bring in the present moment
all my future dreams and hopes.
Past, present and future come together in me, here in this moment.
I may be just a moment in the reckoning of the universe
but the universe will never be the same again
because I once was here in this moment.

The present moment is best relished in peace and quiet.
Noise distracts and drives away the moment.
All the noise and the hurry is often driven by our fears, hatred and anger.
Own silence in the moment and one can master one’s fears; then there is peace.
One can drive away fears in the silence and then there is peace.
Only in the silence can one’s anger be tamed to achieve peace.
