Lesson 34: I could see peace instead of this."The idea for today begins to describe the conditions that prevail in the other way of seeing. Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter. It must begin with your own thoughts, and then extend outward. It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises."
I don't know why but this one seems more of a struggle to me than it should! Seeing peace as something we begin with our thoughts when our external worlds seem out of our control can be hard to grasp (certainly for me anyway).
Personally, I've found the best way for me is practicing TM twice a day - which I have NOT been doing the last few weeks.
Hmmm... maybe that answers my question about why today's lesson is such a struggle - lol!
