NTS 4: the battle wounds of self discovery

This is an old post from my other blog, but still worth the repost here.

Sometimes in our relentless efforts to reach our ultimate truths and happy endings, we fall into the trappings of false rewards and empty gratification. We keep asking why, what, how but never even blink to notice the answer that’s already in front of us. After all, peace isn’t the answer. Peace is the process. Learn to accept the beauty of every moment. Never forget that even little things (a missed elevator ride, a few extra pennies, a few minutes late/early, an harsh tone, a kind word, a gentle smile etc) can mean so much.

There you will find yourself. Right in the midst of everything (and everyone) that keeps you alive.
