We don’t realize that, somewhere within us all, there does exist a supreme self who is eternally at peace….Elizabeth Gilbert
this is the peace of ritual and family and the deep quiet of trees…..and it is also the peace that comes with leaning into suffering, heartache, and fragile wings……may we know these gifts….
What if this is so, always, even in our moments of emotional turmoil, physical pain or mental anguish? Is there a centre that rests in stillness, that embodies peace? Sometimes, even though I cannot shift my awareness into this place, just knowing it is there helps me take a long slow breath into this moment, whatever it holds. May we connect to that centre each day……Oriah Mountain Dreamer
Peace is born out of equanimity and balance. Balance is flexibility, an ability to adjust graciously to change. Equanimity arises when we accept the way things are. If you expect your life to be up and down, your mind will be much more peaceful….Lama Yeshe
