finding peace

The title of this post is misleading because the point is that peace needs no finding. It is not found through money, shopping, social interaction, admiration, or recognition. You don't need a big house, an expensive car or the latest fashion. You don't need to do yoga or meditate every day because peace is there, all the time, all around us. (Of course yoga and meditation are lovely anyway and a strengthening and relaxing part of our day) It's like air, you don't need to look for it in order to breathe, it just is. Sometimes you're aware of it and sometimes not but that doesn't affect its presence or availability. This realisation has been liberating, it removes all striving and pressure. I already have it, I have everything I need within and without.
