Thanks for the opportunity to respond. I thoroughly and strongly believe that one's ordinary accepting present experience is an extraordinary accomplishment. I have been practicing for over 20 years and only on a couple of ccasions have I felt highly insightfully peaceful while just sitting. Insightful restfulness is peaceful. This peace precedes happiness and I find I do not need to be happy in order to be peaceful. I am also reminded of a mental stem learning which states: "Increase the tendency to allow things to happen rather than make them happen." By noticing what is, one has a greater chance of accepting what is. When I accept what is, I desire less and I am more peaceful. This brief passage from an unknown author is an excellent summary of wonderful, peaceful living. Warm and kind regards to everyone.
