Oh boy, nothing seems to cause folks the appearance of being bogged down more than them believing they need to stick to things they half heartedly said or agreed with. Realize all the chatter is fine and from the pureness and you owe these slanted translations of the truth nothing.
Peace is knowing every wonderful and foolish thing is of the same true nature. We can not practice to become what we already are nor could we some how escape in any way our pureness.
Fear can only appear to cause problems, the separation from the underlying peace will never occur. Realizing this only makes things appear to flow a little smoother, though your always present pureness is changeless.
