314. We can be at peace without being “happy”

Things come up, we have emotions and get emotional 

It’s okay 

But being upset at something doesn’t mean we aren’t at peace 

Peace doesn’t mean happiness 

Peace is accepting the moment, freedom from unconscious interruptions 

Happiness is the state of feeling pleasure or satisfaction 

Similar, but different 

Yes we can be upset and still be at peace 

And yes we can be happy and not be at peace 

Let’s remember to be present, to be where our feet are, because that’s all we really got.
