Within the chaos and conflict of the world, we long for peace. Often, peace is defined as some sort of compromise, some sort of restraint of natural impulses. This brand of peace is actually repression and repression breads anger and conflict and you know the rest. I've found that peace is not about comprise or repression. It's not about following rules of conduct. Here are a few thoughts about a different sort of peace, a natural one that is already here within reach.
Peace is lively stillness.
Peace is delighting in the co-existence of opposites.
Peace is seeing thoughts, words and actions as currents within the stillness you are.
Peace is experiencing birth and death as waves within stillness.
Peace is entering the silent gap within conflict and finding aliveness.
Peace is laughing about others being in conflict with what you say.
Peace is engaging Mind's role as definer of characters in the play of Life performed on the stage of silence.
Peace is honoring your role in the world play, whatever it is.
Peace is not something you achieve. It's what you are.
What is your experience of genuine peace?
