In an era marked by rapid changes, many of us grapple with feelings of chaos, worry, and uncertainty. Amidst this whirlwind of change, the quest for a sanctuary of peace becomes ever more pressing.
But what if you could find that unchanging, secure foundation within you—your own Being. Amidst the flux of life, your Being remains a constant, a haven of certainty and peace.
Our innate longing for security and tranquility often leads us on an outward search. Yet, the external world, with its inherent uncertainty and constant change, cannot offer the solace we seek. If we identify ourselves too closely with the external chaos, we entangle ourselves in the very uncertainty and worry we aim to escape.
You know your own Being. It’s the most intimate understanding you possess—the sense of self that has been with you since childhood, unchanged by life’s trials and transformations. Despite the myriad of experiences you’ve encountered, this foundational knowing of who you are has remained steadfast.
It’s possible that you’ve momentarily lost touch with this core aspect of yourself, allowing the peace and quiet joy that is your nature to be overshadowed by life’s tumultuous events.
Many of us find ourselves distanced from our inherent peace and the quiet, unconditional joy of our Being, especially in challenging times. However, this serenity has not vanished; it may simply be obscured by our immediate experiences.
In moments of uncertainty and insecurity, turning inward to our own Being offers a path to rediscovery. Our true self, always present, can seem like a backdrop to the unfolding drama of life—similar to how a movie screen remains unnoticed in the engrossment of the film. Yet, just as a movie cannot be viewed without its screen, our experiences are projected from and known through our own Being.
When we lose connection with our Being, we become lost in the “content” of our lives, our thoughts, and the ever-changing emotions that accompany them. Consumed by news, conversations, and the external world, without the anchor of our Being, we may feel adrift, at the mercy of an ever-changing world.
Yet, if we shift our focus back to the screen—back to the unchanging Knowing of our experiences—we find ourselves, a constant presence offering peace amidst life’s storms. Imagine the sky, impartially hosting clouds, storms, and even tempests without being disturbed or altered. Similarly, your Being can host all experiences without judgment or the need to change them.
Turning towards your own Being, recognizing it as the core of your experience, brings you back to your home within. Seeking peace in tumultuous times means finding refuge in ourselves, where all the peace and joy we’ve ever desired reside.
Those in touch with their Being are truly fortunate, possessing life’s most precious gift. Such individuals can share their innate peace and quiet, unconditional joy with others, enriching lives beyond words.
You too can rediscover the serene nature of your own self, a sanctuary of tranquility and a source of unwavering light amidst the shadows of change.
