Finding Peace
Despite a lifetime of trying, I've never found anything (habit, behaviour, practice, intention, effort, achievement, circumstance, etc.) that has consistently worked to bring about a peaceful state of mind.
 
I would suspect that most human beings would say the same.
 
I have however noticed that my peace is not actually circumstance or action related, even though I tend to frequently make that attribution.
 
Instead, I have found the experience of peace to be much more beautifully complex, and paradoxically, much more beautifully simple than that.
 
Sometimes I feel peace. Sometimes I don't.
 
Let that rest quietly for a moment or two.
 
...
...
 
I once felt profound peace in the middle of a car accident and once felt deep suffering surrounded by the incomprehensible beauty and peace of nature.
 
If circumstances or actions create peace, how could this be possible?
 
I never did anything to intentionally feel that peace during the car accident. I never did anything to intentionally feel that suffering while out in nature. It just happened.
 
I never realized the profound significance of this until just a few years ago.
 
Oddly, it didn't leave me hopeless...
 
It left me free.
 
With Love and Laughter,
Jonelle

Hi Jonelle, just started reading this site-thank you so much. I have a question I hope you can answer for me: are emotions & feelings the same thing?
