How to Find Peace?

“Don’t look for peace.

Don’t look for any other state than the one you are in now;

otherwise, you will set up inner conflict and unconscious resistance.

Forgive yourself for not being at peace.

The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace.

Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace.

This is the miracle of surrender”

Just Because

“I want to do it because I want to do it.

Women must try to do things as men have tried.

When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.”

~ Amelia Earhart

Choose Less Turbulent Skies

“Always seek less turbulent skies.

Hurt. Fly above it.

Betrayal. Fly above it.

Anger. Fly above it.

You are the one who is flying the plane.”

Peace in a Cup

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently,

as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves –

slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.”
