Om Shanti. Is it that by receiving God's love we can remain peaceful? Or is it that by remaining peaceful, we can receive God's love? A parent loves a peaceful child. If a parent gives love, and his child remains peaceful, the parent gives more love.
Use “traffic control breaks” (short periods of meditation periodically) to give yourself a chance to pause and check whether you are peaceful. Check whether you are allowing yourself to feel anxious or worried, and learn to return yourself to a state of peace. God keeps us happy and peaceful by giving us love. By paying attention to our spiritual stage, we receive and sustain ourselves in God’s love.
