Peace, the kind that passes all understanding and that flows like a river, is an inside job.
It isn’t there because of our circumstances, but in spite of them.
It doesn’t come in the absence of change and challenges, but is what steadies us in the midst of them
It can be carried with us wherever we go, and will carry us through whatever comes our way.
It is the kind of peace that no one else can give to us or take away from us.
Cultivating peace, the kind that passes all understanding and that flows like a river, is the lifelong process of returning to our true self. The person we were when we first arrived on the planet and before the world told us who we should be.
Peace is coming home to the place we never left.
