Attaining peace is a phenomenon beyond our mind’s understanding. Well, first, You can’t attain peace for it’s a state of Being and that isn’t something that can be had by the mind as in a possession and hold on to it. The physical mind or ego is never satisfied and wants things at all costs. It does not want peace as it believes it will die if peace is attained so You, as the ego part of You, will invent ways to destroy peace. But You are actually destroying yourself, so to speak.
A state of Being is beyond the mind, yet, the mind can be a cooperative component. When the heart is accessed to feel the peace from its inherent state, then the mind can cooperate with the heart. The heart begins to lead so the mind doesn’t have to work so hard. It can rest and relax in its “current” state and electromagnetic itself into pure following, not leading.:)
It takes effort to lead, to be a leader, because You must put all these things, all details, in place so that You can lead from a place of knowing. With this said, the mind never knows. It only receives, but it thinks It knows what it receives.
Resting in peace is a phenomenon that no ONE can truly know. When we reference, “She is resting in peace now” after someone has died, we truly don’t know what that means. Were they suffering and it was really our suffering that we were witnessing.
The mind will call all appearances real, and yet, the appearances are not real. They are optical illusions from the mind because they mind labels appearances, all forms, because it needs a handle on things, needs to control things.
When we can allow all appearances to be for no one’s sake, just for the sake of being here now, we can shift our awareness to include them, not exclude them. Here in lies the resting in peace because peace must be here in order for resting to take place. 🙂
