Thought for the day, Tuesday 13th September

“I have been practising meditation, I have been to workshops, I have read many books on spirituality, I try to be in a state of non-resistance – but if you ask me whether I have found true and lasting inner peace, my honest answer would have to be “no.”
Why haven’t I found it? What else can I do?
You are still seeking outside, and you cannot get out of seeking mode. Maybe the next workshop will have the answer, maybe that new technique.
To you I would say:
Don’t look for peace. Don’t look for any other state than the one you are in now; otherwise you will set up inner conflict and unconscious resistance.
Forgive yourself for not being at peace. The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace.
Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace.
This is the miracle of surrender.”
