Peace and Mind

Peace and Mind

The reason why being peaceful feels distant is because of its association with the mind. Peace is for the taking, but it cannot be enjoyed as long as the mind is present. Mind is the hindrance. It’s like sadness is the hindrance to laughter. The more you are identified with your mind, the less peace you will be able to have because they oppose each other. You must either be for peace, or be for chaos. There is no possibility to be for both, much like you cannot be at the mountaintop and in the valley at the same time. A choice has to be made. You must either be here or there. You cannot be here and there. People have been told a great lie, which is that their minds are very important for their survival, and that you will not be able to live happily without it. But the opposite is the truth! that the best way to be happy is to live is without it. The purpose of mind identification is to addict people to darkness, stupidity, and struggle. As unpleasant as it may be to hear this, the purpose of mind is essentially to keep people down. So the more you are identified with your mind, the lower you probably are. Mind keeps people living in duality. So there can never be a true sense of oneness, which by the way, is what that taste of godliness is about. Godliness has nothing to do with religion, it has to do with the essence of oneness, of peace. Everything else is just nonsense. Peace happens by putting the mind to rest, when you stop looking for, and needing it to make sense for you. It never does. Mind is a question mark, it is pure deception. So if you are leaning on mind for help, you might want want to reconsider! Mind is not your friend! So the more you disassociate with it, the healthier you will be. And the more you silence the noise inside, the more your true inner beauty will begins to sing! The sun starts shining! You are re-discovered, and it’s a beautiful day! Nobody needs mind. They have been telling you a lie. All the greatest people who have lived were not in their minds, because if you are, you cannot be great. You can only be great when you leave it. Peace and mind aren’t together, they have never been together. They are an oxymoron. That’s why you cannot have peace of mind. You can only have peace from mind. Peace is only possible for those who have left their minds behind. So contentment is a very special gift; it is something that comes as a result of liberating yourself from the mind’s control over you. dwp

One thought on “Peace and Mind

  1. Robert Schenck

    Beautiful essay! Brilliant. The wise function from no-mind; they still have a mind but they are the masters of their mind; most of our species, as, of course, you know, are ruled by their minds and think it is them talking.

    Your writing is superb,

    Love, Bob
