3P Random Reflections Blog

Despite a lifetime of trying, I've never found anything (habit, behaviour, practice, intention, effort, achievement, circumstance, etc.) that has consistently worked to bring about a peaceful state of mind.

I would suspect that most human beings would say the same.

I have however noticed that my peace is not actually circumstance or action related, even though I tend to frequently make that attribution.

Instead, I have found the experience of peace to be much more beautifully complex, and paradoxically, much more beautifully simple than that.

Sometimes I feel peace. Sometimes I don't.

Let that rest quietly for a moment or two.



I once felt profound peace in the middle of a car accident and once felt deep suffering surrounded by the incomprehensible beauty and peace of nature.

If circumstances or actions create peace, how could this be possible?

I never did anything to intentionally feel that peace during the car accident. I never did anything to intentionally feel that suffering while out in nature. It just happened.

I never realized the profound significance of this until just a few years ago.

Oddly, it didn't leave me hopeless...

It left me free.

With Love and Laughter,
