Finding inner peace

How long have you been seeking...peace?

A lifetime.

Not that I'm any authority, but the moment we turn our attention from ordering our outer world to understanding and coming to terms with our inner landscape, is (at least) the moment we begin to see the world for what it is. Namely, an unformed, universal turning. Yes, in case you needed reminding, everything changes including our thoughts, feelings and emotions. If we think we can control them by lots of positive thinking et al, then we may find that we end up running faster and faster just to stand still.

Instead, we might glean more by:

1. sitting in silence;

2. accepting this moment, fully; and

3. dropping any attachment to all and anything. 

I know from many years of chasing the dream that too often we find ourselves chasing shadows. If only we'd drop the pretence and invite the question, "Who am I? Sure it has an existential bias but what's so wrong with that!

Anyhow, have a wonderful day. And thanks for taking the time to read my few words. If you're minded to comment please feel free to do so. If you want to know more about my work, you might like to follow me on Patreon where I share a daily post and a weekly monologue on how we might awaken to true self.

Blessings and deep bows.
