Peace is being...it is not in becoming!

Peace is being...it is not in becoming!

 

Identified with our personality, indulging in ideas of "I'm this; I'm that," we seek happiness in numerous areas. Tired finally, we find true happiness in the Self, our true nature, where no description applies to us!

This is conveyed by Chāndogya Upanishad 6:8:2.

A bird, tied by a thread to a base, flies in all directions trying to find a new resting place. Exhausted, it returns to the base and quietly rests there.

sa yathā shakunih sutrena prabaddho...
स यथा शकुनि: सूत्रेण प्रबद्धो...

~ Swami Chidananda
