I always wanted to tell you that Peace is not simply the absence of war. Peace is not a noun, it is a verb. Peace is not a thing, nor is it the state of a thing. Peace is the action that proceeds from that which is true and real within us (I do not mean inside our seeming body, I mean within our pure unblemished essence). It is the ability to look upon the entirety of the universe and see that all that is, is my brother - my sister - my self. Not the "my self " typing this, the "my self " that is the Authentic Identity. That which is in Perfect Oneness in the Eternal Always. The Identity that is no Identity that reaches out to all in the language that is no language and meets every expression with unsolicited Love.
