+ To find peace, stop looking for it

If you are looking for new experiences, no matter how high or pure they may seem to be, you have turned yourself into a victim of the future.

The foundation of a world where there seems to be more than one is separation. First that which is one seems to become two and then more and more – and this is what such a world is about. Yet to be or have more does not lead to more peace, but more separation and therefore a feeling of more loss, which enhances the hope for more.

There is nothing exciting about peace. Nevertheless it is that which is life – not the kind of life though that appears to have an end. It has no beginning or end and thus no size. And as excitement always is evoked by something definable, that is expected to give you lasting happiness when it is achieved in the future, there is no excitement in peace.

As peace is that which is one, and as that which is you is no different from that which is one, it is found when nobody is looking for it.

What is said in this article about excitement also applies to hope. Peace leaves you nothing to hope for.

When not rushing around to get excited about this and that, boredom will reveal the peace of that which is.

If you are not looking for excitement you do not need to look for ways to relax.

Excitement is based on the idea, that there must be more than that which is one. But no matter how excited or high you get, it is not enough. Any excitement or state of mind will enhance your motive of looking for excitement, namely to be or have more, so any achievement motivates you to look for more.

To be connected is an imagination based on the belief in separation, as you are imagining a connection to something separated from you.

Most persons, who consider themselves spiritual, agree that the world is in the eye of the beholder. If so, it seems those persons are fucked up, because they always complain about the world, and say it is missing something or something should be changed, so that there can be peace.

Peace needs nothing, because it is formless and therefore endless, so it is everything. And so is that which is you, since there is no more than peace.

Peace has no privacy, because it is without knowledge, consciousness and everything else that requires more than one.
