“The biggest mountain you will ever climb
is the mountain of understanding.
Once you have climbed that mountain, you would have truly conquered something
because you would understand…
BREAK THE ROPE
I would like to congratulate you for reading this. I know you could be reading anything. But you are interested in peace; you are interested in finding fulfillment in your life. And that, to me, deserves the sincerest congratulations because you are looking for the highest achievement that a human being can attain…to be human.
We have the possibility to be free, to feel peace, to achieve what it is to truly be human. So the question is, what ropes hold us back from achieving that peace when peace is inside of every one of us?
We can communicate with people around the world instantly. In just an instant you’re connected with the other side of the world. But all of this technology has not brought us any closer to peace with ourselves.
To attain peace you don’t have to do anything. Everything you want, you have to do something for it. And for peace you have to do nothing because peace is already inside of you. Peace is in the core of your being, in your heart.
The heart is the place where courage resides—the courage to go forward and fulfill who you really are. The heart is the place where your truest wisdom resides. The heart is the place where you will find the quest, the thirst to be fulfilled. All that is good in you as a human being is in your heart.
Do you feel the simplicity that the heart offers you? Human wisdom should be about simplicity: If you are thirsty, drink water. If you’re tired, rest. If you’re confused, seek clarity. If you’re in sadness, seek joy. This is human wisdom. When you feel empty, find your fulfillment because that’s in you, too.
If you have any question about the beauty and power of this universe—the earth spinning around and you on it with a heart that wants to be fulfilled—then watch the sunset at night or watch the sunrise in the morning.
It doesn’t need any glorification. This story of the human being doesn’t need any glorification either; it simply needs to be told. It is a story about the ropes that we are quite capable of breaking—but we have given up because once we couldn’t and so we think we still can’t. I say: Don’t give up. Don’t give up in this life. There’s no reason to.
There is an adventure every day, and it is the adventure of understanding. Not climbing mountains. The biggest mountain you will ever climb is the mountain of understanding. Once you have climbed that mountain, you would have truly conquered something because you would understand…your self.
Do you want to be free? Before you set off on a journey to be free, understand what’s holding you back. Why are you not free? All these ideas you have about things, about everything, are not yours; they were put into your head a long time ago. And like a good little girl, like a good little boy, you said, “Thank you.”
Look in the mirror—open your eyes, and I guarantee you a miracle. Because what you see looking at that mirror is a miracle. The dirt that can see, that can smile, that can admire, that can actually say, “That’s me!” That’s you. This existence is you.
Knowing yourself is the human attribute that truly makes you who you are. Focus. Realize your strength; realize you don’t have to be tied by the rope. You can easily break it and be free. Free!
Be content; be fulfilled. Be in peace. It is possible. Find contentment within yourself. Enjoy every day. That’s the possibility. That’s what peace is about. What I’m talking about is a very distinct feeling, a feeling of being fulfilled. A feeling of being free.
“Be content; be fulfilled.
Be in peace.
It is possible.”
