Life Is Full But Not Overcrowded — by Peace Pilgrim

Post by Welles » Wed Oct 30, 2019 5:59 pm

In my mid life, I began to realize that it's as though we have two selves or two natures or two wills with two different viewpoints. Because the viewpoints were so different, I felt a struggle in my life at this period between the two selves with the two viewpoints. So there were hills and valleys – lots of hills and valleys.

Then in the midst of the struggle there came a wonderful mountain-top experience, and for the first time, I knew what inner peace was like. I felt a oneness – oneness with all my fellow human beings, oneness with all of creation. I have never felt really separate since. I could return again and again to this wonderful mountaintop, and then I could stay there for longer and longer periods of time, and just slip out occasionally. Then came a wonderful morning when I woke up and knew that I would never have to descend again into the valley.
Peace Pilgrim was one of the inspirational people who helped form my consciousness.
