The Search For Peace

‘I know I’ll join a gym and work on my body; the flabby bits, the bits I don’t like, maybe get a six or twelve pack!, become slim and super fit, then I’ll feel better about myself.’

– NOW EXHAUSTED –
‘Well that didn’t work, I am still not happy…
Maybe it is my mind I have to fix?!!!
Ummm… I hear good things about Hypnotherapy, Tapping, Reiki and this new one – Super Sonic Brain Changing therapy!!!
Yes, this feels like the answer 😀’

– NOW EXHAUSTED AND BROKE –
‘Still no peace…, there must be something more than this…?
I know…! If I get enlightened then that’s the end of a ‘me’ and I won’t need to deal with my rubbish life anymore. I hear it is unending bliss 24/7!
Right off to India I go…Om’

– NOW COMPLETELY EXHAUSTED, COMPLETELY BROKE AND WITH NO PERSONAL POSSESSIONS OR LIFE –
‘Oh bugger, that didn’t work!
What now??? I don’t know? I JUST DON’T KNOW??? I am out of moves, totally exhausted, I’M DONE, what to do…????
I GIVE UP…!!!’

– REVELATION – SILENCE –
‘Ah…Ah! (Haha backwards 🤣)
This feels pretty good, what happened…???
Nothing, NOTHING…???
I STOPPED…’

‘Stopped fighting, chasing and trying to get something, anything other than what is here now.
No more seeking for some special imaginary state.
No more trying to create a perfect somebody.
No more searching for solutions, fixing, healing, interfering or changing my silly self.’

‘As I turn to face myself with loving curiosity I realise that actually my silly self is pretty awesome and beautiful with all its wonderful natural human flaws; broken, imperfect, with flabby bits, an ageing body, CRAZY thoughts, weird behaviours and random feelings.’

‘Finally peace at last…
Here I am, just me, living my extraordinary life!’
