365 days of peace: a painful peace

KIMG0610I had to fail a bunch today before stumbling on a piece of wood and hacking at it for a while. Peace is letting go of your expectations, narratives and resentments. Suffering is caused by  holding on  to attachments & aversions. If you have been holding on for a long time letting go can hurt. But you heal and you grow and you do the work. Great beauty can rise from some dark and ugly places. 48/317
