A common space for harmonic peacemakers
There are two kinds of peace in this world. There is one piece that is a formula. And there is one peace that has to be felt. The formula peace many people have. Some say 'i have peace. I've got a good family, I've got a good job, I've got a good house, so I am happy. I am fine.'
Ask a rich person, 'Do you have peace?' they say ' yes.. i have this i have that I have peace and i am ok.'
If you ask a monk,'Do you have peace?' they say 'yes i have peace because i do not have this and i do not have that.'
This is all the peace of formulas. Everybody has formula peace. And there is constant war because formula peace does not bring peace.
Even if you take a picture of the sun, you cannot pull it out at night and expect it to light your house. The picture of the sun does not produce light. The sun does.
Conceived peace is just like that picture of the sun. People talk and read about peace, which is good. but at some point in time, you have to know it.. you have to feel it.
If you want real peace it has to be felt.. not once but every day of your life. You need to be able to turn inside every day and feel the joy, the beauty, the serenity in your life. Everyday.
