June 11th - Day 162
The Peace that passes understanding is our Refuge. It is beyond the mind, yet includes the mind. It is that Stillness that is the background for all phenomenal activity, be it seeing or hearing objects, all action, everything. But it is a mistake to think that Peace mitigates pain; it does not. It is not a technique to make pain go away. So in a sense, our Refuge is of no help in this world. To Know Peace does not change the circumstance or the drama in this world. The world simply goes on until it doesn't.
