To understand peace, it seems to me that it may be helpful to have clarity on what it is not first:

* Peace is not about personal or collective security.
* Peace is not about ownership of your spouse, your mate, your employees, or your children.
* Peace is not about ownership of your home, your land, your cars, or your business.
* Peace is not about inequality.
* Peace is not about labels.
* Peace is not about levels.
* Peace is not about hierarchies.
* Peace is not about categories.
* Peace is not about heroes and heroines.
* Peace is not about ancient or modern day mythology.
* Peace is not about CNN.
* Peace is not about your individual entitlements, the entitlements of a religion, the entitlements of a culture, the entitlements of special animal species, the entitlements of forestland, the entitlements of a country, or the entitlements of this planet.
* Peace is not about the reconciliation of polarized ideological positions.
* Peace is not about the past.
* Peace is not about the future.
* Peace is not about seeing anything or anyone seemingly outside of yourself as separate from you in any way.


If you attempt to include any of the above in your reasoning towards or pursuit of peace, you do NOT understand nor will you ever attain
peace this way; you will remain in pursuit of something you don't understand.

So, what then is peace?
* Peace is what is left in your mind when all the ideas I mentioned above are gone. Take a look.
