Unattainable Goal of Peace

In my life experience, I have found deep peace after surrendering my fears.  I remember sitting in my mother-inlaw's funeral service and feeling peace cover me like a blanket.  The relief and joy that filled my soul was because I allowed myself to release her body, mind and spirit that had suffered for so long here on earth.  I recognized and remembered that she was returning to her essence and that I was grateful for her presence in my life and that she was as close as the mention of her name.  That soothed my egoic fear of being left behind and even though I continued to miss her, I am peaceful.  I often think of this experience when tough times appear and I calm my anxiety by trusting the process of surrender.
