Peace is the message I want to send out into the universe today. Our planet is in such great need of it. My own sense of inner peace has been knocked off kilter lately. I'm focusing on ways to restore it. I'm seeing an acupuncturist, eating well and trying to get enough rest. I'm making time for my creative side. I'm also sort of meditating and really working hard on letting go of what I cannot control.
The letting go that is needed in my life right now is hardest when it involves witnessing the pain that someone with a selfish and mean spirit is inflicting on people I love. The worst part of all is that circumstances are preventing me from protecting my loved ones.
This dark hearted person in my life meets the definition of evil. I don't mean evil as in the devil, but as someone who thrives on control and manipulation to intentionally hurt others for the pure satisfaction of doing it. This person takes great delight in, and feeds off of, hurting others. I don't know what goes into making someone like this.
Some days have been nearly insurmountable. Tears are surface level and will spill at the smallest thing. I'm a peaceful person by nature. I don't hold grudges. I don't feel vengeance. But the anger that rises from watching my loved ones be hurt redefines torture. My faith that karma will take care of this person is wavering. It's not my place to pray that karma be more timely, but I would be grateful if it were sooner than later.
Sigh... this is when I know it's important to seek peace in my own heart and not let the darkness of someone else's actions leave a mark on me. I will rise above .... I will survive and so will my loved ones.
Here's to peace for all my loved ones and the world over.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
