The Way Of The Way 166

When we perceive the world as a duality, it’s our self and all the rest;

often a tiring interaction at best.

To truly rest, we need become one with the rest.

When truly at rest, we are at peace. Peace is the nothingness that remains after we forget about everything, our self and all the rest. In nothingness, we are one with the nothingness; at rest, at peace.

Alternatively, when we abandon our self, we become one with what remains: one with everything (all the rest). Then, without the tiring friction of duality, we are at rest, at peace.

Peace can be had in a place of nothingness or when we are one with everything. Either way, there is no self which is what tires us.
