Resistance and Acceptance Part 2
The road to peace is simple. That does not mean it is easy.
When we find our pain we must embrace it completely.
Until we become one with our pain we will be unable to
release it. If we don’t release our pain,
we will never find peace.
The Wise Man is at Peace
Knowing this, the wise man resolutely faces himself,
fully feels his pain, and goes free. He becomes strong
and complete. His mind is clear and at peace.
The Fool is not at Peace
Fearing this, the foolish man deceives himself, denies
his pain, and diminishes his power. He remains in
harm’s way, beaten down by that which binds him.
Because of his self-deception, he grows even weaker and
more incomplete. His rage never ends. He will never find peace.
The world is full of fools and ruled by fools.
That which is in short supply and most needed
in this world is wisdom.
If you are not in tune with your soul,
you may have great intelligence
but you will lack wisdom.
This combination leads to great ego
and separates you farther from your soul.
You may own the world but
you will never know peace.
Your mission is to find your soul
and be part of the solution to the world’s plight,
not part of the problem that has enslaved the world.
It takes a brave person to step off the conventional carousel and find peace.
It’s time to be brave.
Tomorrow will be too late.
The world will be at peace when we become peaceful.
To find inner peace we must face ourselves, and remove
the source of our resistance.
It is far better to face ourselves than it is to continually
blame others for our predicament.
The Future is in Our Hands
Blame makes the negative the ruling power in our lives.
When we find inner peace, the solutions to our
problems are clear and obvious.
The future of the world is in our hands.
If we don’t find inner peace, who will?
We are the world.
When we save ourselves, we save the world.
The time to act is now, not later.
We are too close to losing the future.
