Mind is the greatest of all mysteries. It stands between an individual and the highest truth and is the cause of both bondage and liberation.
Properly trained, mind can help you attain enlightenment, but if misguided, it can leave you stranded on the shoals of confusion and bondage.
Peace is created by the mind.
First, make the decision to be content in any circumstance. From that womb of contentment, peace is born.
It is foolish to expect to achieve peace by retiring into the deep forest or leaving for a distant galaxy. Ultimately, one must find peace within.
