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?
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!
I don’t know?
I JUST DON’T KNOW???
I am out of moves,
What to do…????
I GIVE UP!!!’
– REVELATION – SILENCE –
‘Aha…! (Haha backwards, well… almost)
This feels pretty good,
‘Yes, I 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!’
