Abiding PEACE isn’t a doing at all. New MJ Awakening Blog

abiding-peace

Fulfillment of desires does not bring abiding peace. Fulfillment of a desire leads to more desires. It’s endless. Clearly seeing this, at first, may bring fear… “Well, if my desires cannot lead to abiding peace, what to do??”

Realize that ABIDING PEACE ISN’T A DOING AT ALL. It’s noticing that where you are seeing from is already peace itself. Thus, no thought or action can take you to abiding peace, but in fact takes you away from it because the very movement of seeking is an indication that you don’t already possess what you are looking for.

After all, if you have your keys on you, you are not going to start searching for them. But what if you forgot you have them in your pocket? Then you will start to search high and low for them until somebody comes along and says, “What is that in your pocket?” And you say, “Why yes, those are my keys!” And they say, “Have they not been with you all along?”
