If you are going to be distracted by the elements of the story that you call your life, then let them be those that align you with your true nature of peace and contentment. What is it in your state of being that never changes? Oh, you may think in terms of human things, but go beyond things to a state of being. What is always present like the sky with or without clouds? The pure state of simply being with nothing added. You know this state in the pause between the thoughts and feelings. However briefly you enjoy this experience of freedom, it is your salvation. Come to know your basic essence as this—the no story aspect of being, and you will understand that the peace you seek has always been and is always here within. 

You are so very loved.
