FEELING THREATENED BY PEACE-by Pema Chödrön

FEELING THREATENED BY PEACE

The peace that we are looking for is not peace that

crumbles as soon as there is difficulty or chaos. Whether

we're seeking inner peace or global peace or a combination

of the two, the way to experience it is to build on

the foundation of unconditional openness to all that

arises. Peace isn't an experience free of challenges, free

of rough and smooth, it's an experience that's expansive

enough to include all that arises without feeling

threatened.
