Summer, Big Sur, California

We seek peace. We seek love. We seek joy. We never find what we seek. These are not things that can found.

However, if we surrender to presence, we will embody them without effort because peace, love and joy are our natural states.

We do not need to work at it, look for it, wish for it, hope for it. We cannot find it by thinking about it. When we bring our attention to the present moment and away from our unconscious thinking we will be home.

The pull of compulsive thinking is strong. Remaining in presence requires vigilant mindfulness and courage.

Let's surrender to presence.

so simple, yet so hard to, like writing, the first word is the hardest.

Thanks as always Phillip.
