Finding Peace

Posted by Gary on Oct 2nd, 2011

As you become aware you see things with clarity.  When you have clarity you will see the world is chaotic, filled with, inequities, and uncertainty.    With clarity you are aware without a doubt that your future, and the future of the world around you is completely unknown.

The temptation is to try to make sense of the world, or put order to it, or control your world, so that you feel safe.   This is to chase the illusion of safety for a single human can not control all circumstances and changes of life.

The real challenge is to remain completely aware that the world and future is unknown to you, and to be accepting of this fact.  Acceptance of this fact will make your mind quiet and your heart peaceful.

To find, or in another sense create, a quiet mind and peaceful heart in the midst of a chaotic world with an unknown future is more challenging, and yet clarity reveals it is the only choice we have in the matter of how we will live our lives.
