I used to believe that peace and freedom depended upon whether or not those in my life - or out of it - allowed me to have peace or freedom.
I used to believe that peace and freedom was negotiable depending upon my circumstances and if "events" in my life were...just so.
I used to believe that peace and freedom came from outside of myself via people, circumstances, and events.
Then, one day I had an epiphany. A realization. An Inner Knowing!
True Peace, Real Peace...True Freedom, and Real Freedom come from Within. These things are an attribute of Soul.
When I realized this I began the joyful process of Soul Restoration!
True Refuge is a place in the heart and it is also a wonderful book for those on the Path of Soul Restoration and excavating true Peace and True Freedom.
True Refuge - Finding Peace and Freedom in Your Own Awakened Heart by Tara Brach, PH.D. is a gem, a scintillating diamond on the "Via Positiva".
I heartily recommend this book for all who yearn for Freedom, Peace, Joy, and Soul Restoration!
