The ego seeks a certainty in the future for peace.
The spirit accepts what is now, stops resisting, surrenders and knows that peace is always deep within no matter what.
We do not have to wait for this or that to happen in our imagined futures, our spirit can have peace right now.
If you walk away from an argument, if you resist a fight, if let go even when you do not agree, is that weakness? Or is, in fact, the very opposite?
We see arguing, fighting, being opinionated, aggression, dominating others and so on as strength. We see being ‘in-charge’ as leadership. Perhaps leadership is actually setting an example for others to be inspired by.
It is the weakness of the mind and the vulnerability of our self-image that causes us to fight, argue, become aggressive, behave badly to defend the things that do not matter and are in fact not real, but a fabrication of our minds. Minds fighting with other minds verbally and physically, and to what ends? A winner and loser. In fact, all parties suffer, there never needs to be a winner or a loser.
What if we could see walking away as a strength, would we have a better world?
