Peace in the chaos

gazelle-leaping1[1]The peace that we’re 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. — Pema Chödrön from Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears
