Peaceful - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade




Peaceful:  untroubled by conflict, agitation, or commotion.  Synonyms:  tranquil, calm, restful, quiet, still, relaxing, soothing, undisturbed, untroubled




I have to admit:  I am a news and political junkie.  And what is coming out in the news these days just makes my head spin, whether it is local, state, national or international.  Because of being constantly bombarded with unending news alerts, I really am appreciative of what I have learned in my three-day a week yoga class:  how to breathe, how to control the monkey mind (or at least calm it to a dull roar), how to be in the moment, how to be mindful and, above all, to add more empathy, compassion, love and peace to each day.  










The theme of this week’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade is Peaceful.  I browsed through the shop of handmade artist friends to find something  that stood out to me as being peaceful.   The items chosen run a wide gamut.  They might have been chosen because of a peaceful color, or a peaceful design, or because of peaceful symbolism.  You’ll find copper butterfly wings and beautiful jewelry in a wide range of unique designs; a heart pendant with a spiral and hand knitted items in pink and luscious pistachio; and, hand painted flower gift cards and a sweet dog key fob (a dog definitely helps to bring peace!).    I hope you enjoy these handmade artisan items that radiate peacefulness.

I would like to finish this post with a favorite quote from the Buddha: “Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.”

Being mindful and in the moment - I love your words, and also try to practice this.
