Peace is freely available in every moment, inside and outside ourselves. This peace – so familiar, so close to home – can be a whisper but when we listen to it can expand as a universal affirmation of all forms of life. Waiting for the conflict to end until we find peace, disconnects us from the peace that underlies every conflict. The surrender of all forms to avoid conflict does not bring an end of conflict, but can lead to the violation of forms it is our responsibility to protect.
Peace resounds through nature and out of the infinite space of the sky. It is the subtle vibration of matter and is inseparable from every split between our seeing and that which is seen. As we learn to rest in this peace, we rise above conflict and see the needs of the whole. When we know the power of the bedrock of peace beneath all manifestation, we can let it support the evolution of the needs of the whole.
Here, I am always, already in Peace
