Good stuff, nansea,
I agree that we have to approach this thing called peace as a way of life. One not only has to find peace with one's neighbor, but first within oneself. It sounds cliche sometimes but that's because it's true. I really feel like the concept or overuse of the label/word "cliche" has been a sort of neurolinguistic weapon used against the sheeple by the power structures to disempower many of the eternal truths and resonant emotions. Because, the word "cliche" is not an emotionless term for "something that comes up a lot", but an actual slander on what it is associated with. So, as a simplistic example, to "love your neighbor" might be labeled as cliche, but it's exactly what must be done, (if we are to live in inner and outer peace). Now that I look at some examples of "cliches" listed on the web i realize i'm referring to clicheed NOTIONS, like "you must find peace within before you can have peace without" rather than what this source that i'm looking at is calling a cliche (ex." existential angst", "freudian slip", "for the birds"). have you ever been in a moment where something came up and it felt inspired or it felt good or felt hopeful, and then you or someone else pointed it out how it was "kinda cliche"? Then the wind leaves the sails, the balloon deflates, and post-modern cynicism sets in. anyways, blah blah blah. what were you saying? =]
if we were to bring it right down to the root of things, as you say in your profile, the obstacle to any kind of harmony is fear, as opposed to love. the fear/love dichotomy could be compared to the biological concept that an organism is either in a state of growth or protection, an outward expansion, or a contracted state. it's been said that at any crossroads we're either choosing love or fear. this contracted and fearful state is what helps reenforce boundaries, whether they be between nations or neighbors. fences, walls, borders, divisions. physical, ethnic, religious, spiritual, ideological. of course we're learning from a holistic world view and from quantum physics that boundaries are essentially illusion or perception, that all is connected, that all is one.

okay i've rambled for long enough.

peace and love,
Greg
