Peace Already Is:
The mind becomes conditioned and it creates stories, these are then used to make you believe they're needed to be at peace, but the story to be at peace is the exact reason there isn’t peace... You are the creator of the belief that you aren't at peace and a story is needed. You can create any story you like, just understand if you don't create a story you will not shrivel up and disappear, all that will happen is you will be at peace. We'll use the example of someone bringing in a cake to work; from there the story you create about the cake is nothing more than that, a story. Maybe you create a story that you love cake and it just so happens to be a chocolate one and you also love chocolate. After all is said and done if you don't create the story about the cake, it will still exist, it just won't have any control over you because there won't be any attachment to it.
Eat cake, don't eat cake, the point of this example is to show how the created story becomes the created attachment which is what makes you want the cake. Substitute anything you want for the cake, it's all the same. A created story creates attachment which in turn creates suffering. In the morning, when you first wake up, that's when the story starts and thus the attachment, but only because you don't know how not to create it.
Stories are the essence of the Conditioned Mind. This isn't something to believe, it’s something to just be aware of so you can stop creating your stories. These stories which are created by your own mind, makes the world delusional and it keeps you in bondage to this delusional world. If you think this doesn't pertain to you that's just another story that keeps you from peace, but beyond the story you are at peace, it's just not realized because of the need to create a story...#thinking #awareness #divinity #desire #love #spirituality #freedom #lifestyle #meditation #energy #truth #Buddha #change #fear #mindfulness #unity #peace #Jesus #kindness #grace #humility #happiness #karma #zen #intention #awakening #transforming #now #impermanence #compassion - 5 hours ago
