Seeking the peace

No, I don’t mean Syria, though I wish it would find relief soonest. I mean the peace inside me, the peace inside you. Peace among nations, peace between antagonists in any country, in all countries, has simply become rare and quite slippery to hold. Why not when peace inside is not any easier to assume?

The turmoil outside resonates with an inside so susceptible to it, sometimes to even multiply it. The surface has just become so dominant that it has managed to reverse the natural order. The process of spirit to imagination to concept to feelings to words and to behavior is lost on too many, and the consequences are misunderstood as root causes. So much re-engineering has to be done by reflection, not only by ageing and inching nearer our end.The speed of the distortion cannot wait for the next lifetime to find its counterforce.
