Non-Peace to Peace

labyrinth

 

 

“Forgive yourself for not being at peace.  The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace is transmuted into peace.  Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace.  This is the miracle of surrender.”  

Eckhart Tolle

 

We are not perfect, so why spend energy focusing on our limitations when we could use that energy to come home to our souls?  We are like monkeys aimlessly swinging from tree to tree screeching, “Where am I, where am I?”  All we have to do is sit still in one tree and we have already taken the first step into our inner sanctuary.

I know this to be true.  Someone told me I was this monkey at age twenty-seven.  The words singed my ego as they found their mark.  Eventually, I accepted the truth and began the practice of sitting still.  It’s been a long journey.

    • Yes, and such a faithful companion you are, Jane. Doesn’t it help to know we are not alone?

  1. Thank you Rita, In WomenSpirit Circle at Catherine Place on last Tuesday, the focus was on peace. Every since then, peace has been in my mind. During the circle, like the doors in the photo, I went from being at the door of non-peace to gradually moving into peace. I didn’t realize what happened until I read the words from Eckhart Tolle, you posted.
    Peace, Diana
