One winter day, a man discovered a thick layer of frost on his window. He started painstakingly scraping it off.
“What are you doing?” inquired a curious neighbor.
“Removing the frost from my window,” answered the man, “so I can see outside.”
His friend suggested, “Light a fire in your home — the frost will disappear by itself!” ~ Pesach and Chana Burston
We make inner peace harder than it needs to be; meditating for hours at a time or traveling to distant gurus. All you need to do is light the fire of awareness to see that your essential nature is peaceful already. Anxiety will disappear by itself.
