The universal principle that peace is not only the end but the means
makes complete sense - when it relates to world peace.
But somehow when we turn within to inner peace
the understanding that peace is also the means
doesn't seem to make sense to many.
Many seekers continue to believe that they need to
change, fix, eliminate or fight with their thoughts and feelings
and don't consider the possibility of simply being peaceful with them.
Notice - how when you're not fighting with thoughts and feelings
you can sense a space around them.
Notice how powerful this peaceful noticing is -
and what it reveals.
It is all very simple. Instead of seeing things imagined, learn to see them as they are. When you can see everything as it is, you will also see yourself as you are. It is like cleansing a mirror. The same mirror that shows you the world as it is, will also show you your own face."
