Absorbed in Your Story

When there’s a story that you need something to provide peace, you become absorbed in that story. Until this is understood, you will remain absorbed in the story (thought) that peace is something outside of you…

There will never be peace in your life if you’re absorbed in the story of finding peace. Peace is something that’s already within everyone, but because of the way the mind is conditioned it becomes something to find. Unfortunately stories are what makes the very thing you are is seeking ( in this case peace) elusive. Your stories are the reason there’s constant reaching for something from the outside and until these stories are no more, you will remain absorbed to the thoughts that peace is in the next thing reached for. Reaching for drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, success, programs, therapy, self help books and so on is the proof that the story is in control. These absorbed stories arising from your thoughts have to be seen if you are to ever experience true peace.

The thought of being at peace isn’t peace. What has to happen if you’re to ever be at peace is there has to be an understanding of what’s blocking your peace. The reason you’re not at peace is the inability to not create stories. When the need to reach for something arises, the absorbed story begins; this is a conditioned cycle that’s very difficult to break free of. Peace isn’t something that can be grabbed and held so it’s in doing less that peace arises. Many get lost (absorbed) in trying to find peace, but since it’s something that’s already within, the story associated with finding it needs to be discarded so you can see it’s already there. This isn’t easy to see. I share not to help you find peace, I share so you may possibly uncover the reason why you’re absorbed in the story you are not at peace…
