This post is an excerpt from my eBook THE NATURE OF LIFE: How to remain at Peace while living in the modern world.
I once asked my Enlightened Taoist Tai Chi Grandmaster, “How do you maintain a sense of Peace while living in the world?”
His reply was profoundly simple, “By having decided to do so!”
He then said, “You may feel you understand what I meant by saying that, but I will explain it in a way that you will be consciously aware - in order to transmit the Truth to others.” He went on to explain that people will only come to the point of making the decision ‘to do so’, through either SUFFERING OR INSPIRATION. You will only develop the conviction to remain at Peace having either:
• suffered enough through the consequences of inappropriate actions
• been Inspired enough to realise the True Nature of all things
He said, because we are living so far removed from Nature, and there are no living examples of Truth and Inspiration in our lives, it only leaves suffering as our means of conviction. He went on to explain how ALL suffering comes from just 3 things:
1. COMPROMISING YOUR HEART
2. CONTRADICTING THE LAWS OF NATURE
3. DENYING THE LAWS AND PRESENCE OF THE DIVINE
The instant that you compromise, contradict or deny, you and all those around you, will suffer! The moment you make the decision to never compromise, contradict or deny ever again - irrespective of what the world does to you - you will remain at Peace!
Peace is the Freedom that comes from being beyond ALL doubt, judgment and question! You must be free of all doubt within yourself, all judgment of others, and all need to question the Divine. Regardless of what you face in life, you must never give into anyone forcing you to do anything that conflicts with your inner Truth. Until you have reached that point of conviction, you will never maintain the sense of Peace! The ultimate Truth is: You are at Peace, or you are not. If not, then you have compromised, contradicted or denied the Truth.
It is essential to realise that knowing how to avoid all the causes of suffering doesn’t mean you know how to remain empowered with Inspiration. So we need to word this in a way that affirms the natural empowered state. You need to:
1. HONOUR YOUR SOUL
2. HONOUR THE LAWS OF NATURE
3. HONOUR THE LAWS AND PRESENCE OF THE DIVINE
- at all times... without exception, exclusions or excuses!
It seems humanity mostly arrives at the point of conviction through suffering. ALL the compromise, contradiction and denial is due to not being connected to Truth, through conscious access to the sources of Inspiration.
