☮Be Peace!☮

Be Peace… it’s easier said than done, I know. But with peace comes better health on all levels. When something petty comes up, it’s easy to lose that inner peace. We’ve all been there at one point or another. You’re almost late to work and all of the traffic lights seem to be red. You’re about to be next in line and realize you’ve forgotten your wallet… A wide array of challenges come along (usually during the most expected times) in people’s lives. That does not mean you cannot live in peace. So the next time something undesirable comes up, take a deep breath (preferably a few), visualize something pleasant like a lotus flower being illuminated by the summer solstice sunlight, turn to gratitude… rather than the attitude of pessimism, doubt, self-pity. Now, what about those bigger life issues? With poor health, losing a loved one, etc… Surely one cannot feel peaceful during such times and that’s perfectly fine! Let out the pain rather than bottling it up. It will take time, but your inner peace is there waiting because you’ve been Peace (& Love) all along.  And it only becomes stronger with each hardship. You see, as much as we’d rather not deal with anything negative in our lives, it can be a teacher if we let it.




Evy Zen (formerly Eva PoeteX) is a mystic poetess, eclectic artist, fiction writer, and wellness advocate who calls the Greater Cleveland area home sweet home. Born a Clevelander with a Greek lineage, the arts started being a major part of her life the moment she picked up her first crayon. To date, dozens of Evy's writings have been featured in publications like Thought Catalog, The Journey Magazine, and Journey of the Heart: Women's Spiritual Poetry. As a spoken word poet, she has also had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous musicians across the globe. Currently, Evy is the Founding Editor of Poehemian Press and runs the decade-young poetry website (formerly The Artistic Muse). Additionally, she is the author of several independently and locally published poetry books, including "Esoterra" and "Sacred Shapes." Furthermore, she works as a full-time freelance writer and editor. In 2012, Evy received a Bachelor of Arts degree (honors) in Creative Writing from Cleveland State University. She also obtained a Diploma (distinction) in Exercise Nutrition from Shaw Academy four years later. When she's not creating, Evy Zen recharges her batteries by reading her weight in books ("The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is her personal favorite), going on epic bike rides, meditating to ambient music, and racing super cars behind the safety of her computer or TV screen.
