looking out

killing more "shoulds"

Don't look for peace.  Don't look for any other state than the one you are in now; otherwise, you will set up inner conflict and unconscious resistance.

Forgive yourself for not being at peace.  The moment you completely accept your non-peace, your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace.  Anything you accept fully will get you there, will take you into peace.  This is the miracle of surrender.

When you accept what is, every moment is the best moment.  That is enlightenment.

-- Eckhart Tolle, from Practicing the Power of Now (New World Library, 2001)

This has been one of the most consistent themes in my practice - the more I just accept, the more authentic I become.
