A place of peace

The Troubadours of Divine Bliss is a musical group consisting of two amazing women who travel the world and spread mighty kindness and messages of love and inspiration through their music. They began to touch my life almost a decade ago. In trying times, I lean on their music to remind me of what is important, who I want to be, and the peace and kindness I want my life revolving around. Last night, my bestie and I went to see them, and they sang this song. It's about letting go in order to find a place of peace...something I've struggled with my whole life and believe I was sent back to this life to overcome. I tend to dwell and dwell and let things eat at me until I'm just a shell of who I am meant to be. In order to successfully complete my journey, I've had to make some adjustments to my life and the people in my life. I believed that by taking what was toxic to me out, I could achieve this goal of inner peace. But doing only that wasn't/isn't enough. Certain thoughts & questions still plague me. If there were a magic pill to make the questions stop coming in, I'd take it. But there is no magic pill. And so I continue on this journey of longing to forget the questions, to forgo the ego, to revisit a place of peace and serenity, to accept that some people are just selfish and inconsiderate. Some will do whatever it takes to feel good about themselves. Some want you to feel miserable because they feel miserable. And some people just don't think. Simple as that ... and that has nothing to do with who I am as a person. Just because I can't understand someone's actions, doesn't mean I have to repeat them. "There are no friends or enemies. There are only teachers." I, just like you, am learning through this life. And I hope to one day come into my place of zen and inner bliss. I long for a day when I can peacefully have all the people in my life that I want in my life. Last night, I was hit with this song, and I wanted to share....for all the others out there, searching for that place of peace within. Blissings,
