- “I had one [bad dream] where Marissa was sending me picture texts, like crime scene photos of Nicholas Boyle, gutted. Even though she’s dead, I’m afraid Marissa’s gonna tell everyone I killed him and they’ll think I’m just like my dad.”
Peace is within oneself to be found in the same place as agitation and suffering. It is not found in a forest or on a hilltop, nor is it given by a teacher. Where you experience suffering, you can also find freedom from suffering. Trying to run away from suffering is actually to run toward it.
