There is a life-force within your soul, seek that life.
There is a gem in the mountain of your body, seek that mine.
O traveler, if you are in search of That
Don’t look outside, look inside yourself and seek That.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s this: that peace is always a nanosecond away.
It takes no time at all to take a breath, to step our attention away from the dramas and worries that consume us, to notice and be rather than engage.
It’s the sacred stopping of the momentum of programmed habits and the relief that comes from expanding into pure alive being. Can you feel it?
In the moment of being aware, obsessive thoughts float by like clouds in the sky. The pressure to change or improve melts away. All the doing to become something better gives way to simply receiving things as they are.
And what’s left? Effortlessly flowing with what is. Feeling the “Thank you” emerge from the stillness. Recognizing the sense that things are okay.
Tasting the palpable aliveness that’s masked when our minds are in charge.
It’s so simple. How to do it?
- Stop. Notice that you’re suffering, and stop.
- Take a cleansing breath.
- Be alert to the aliveness that’s present and let the thoughts go.
- Enjoy the moment of peace.
Then go deeper and explore this peace. Discover its vastness. Notice that it’s always here when your attention isn’t caught in thoughts. Realize the sense of union with everything as your mind and heart open endlessly.
These are not special moments reserved for the blessed few. This is what’s available in your everyday reality.
Let peace fill your body. Let love inform your actions. Inhabit the space where your true fire burns brightly.
