There Is No Other Peak.....

Received this morning......
There is No Other PeaK
Hopes are bound to be shattered. To hope is to hanker for hopelessness, to desire is to breed frustration. But in the worldly things at least there is a possibility of succeeding, failing, attaining, not attaining. But in spiritual matters there is no question of attainment at all because the goose is out! Nothing can be done about it, it is already out. The moment you start enjoying your valley you are on the peak. There is no other peak!

One day I suddenly decided enough is enough. I dropped the idea of the peaks and started enjoying the valley, and a miracle I saw - the valley disappeared. In fact, from the very beginning there had been no valley, I was always on the peak, but because I was searching for a peak I could not see where I was.     Osho

This is a real truth. We must accept the moment where we rest for that time and accept it as where we fit for now.If we look for the beauty we will see it.

We are led through valleys to appreciate each and every moment we are blessed with.

Yes and the flats are good too. :)

Just like Canyons I have visited--I always enjoyed the ones where I could be in the floor of the canyon looking up, rather than the ones where I was looking down.

I hit my peak so long ago, I have forgotten when it was. :-)
