Eventually on the path of awakening, you will recognize that the obstacle is the path. Living a peaceful life is not about avoiding obstacles, because a perfect life, your life, will not happen without them. This is simply not possible.
The obstacle you experience should not rob you of your peace, but offer you the opportunity to become more grounded in peace. If it is robbing you of your peace, you are not experiencing it with awareness. Because the moment you bring the light of awareness to any obstacle, the darkness can no longer hurt you and the peace that is always available to you will once again fill you up.
