Peace….

I am learning to hate that word….

It has been used on me…as a weapon…in more instances I want to remember…

It has become the old standby…the word one will use…to set turmoil…running a muck…

It is like looking at someone and saying SMILE….

Because of course I am the one who determines and sets the qualifications of what deems one to smile about…

I am God….

yeah no…I do not want that job….

But I am divine..of the God energy…in whatever language you choose to define it as…

Being peaceful has now become…the silence tool….

See…see..something is wrong with you…you cannot be peaceful…

So agitation rises…and the myths one is prompted on…grows…and peace is as elusive…as finding the car keys when one is late….they seem to duck and hide…

I can tell you this….

Those not in peace…are usually in the greatest fight of their life….trying to claim their spot in this great and mighty world…

They tend to be the voices we try and silence….

Because well…I am made to feel all…uncomfortable…squishy…

And I would prefer you well…shut up…

Because those not resembling peace…make us..cause us…to look at ourselves…

How have we become complacent…?

How have we numbed ourselves into oblivion….?

How have we set up practices over many years…and expect there to be no repercussions from them…?

HUH????

It is like drinking for years and you are surprised when the doctor tells you…you have brain damage…a condition like “wet brain”…

Or time spent looking at porn…and you look at people as holes….

Peace is a surety of oneself…

It cannot be transferred..I cannot hum…chant…and make another choose a peaceful path…

Every step is up to the individual…Choice…

Peace cannot be obtained when one is doing things to numb…distance..close off…

Peace cannot be obtained by taking your own misgivings and throwing them onto another…

Peace cannot be obtained through hours of meditation…yoga..and great breathing…

Yet peace can be obtained…set into one…through acknowledgement…

That my heart weeps for you…even though I have never met you…

I am filled with sadness…that many of us spend hours…huge amounts of money to alter ourselves…to only hate ourselves more…

Peace comes from knowing one is alive…

Fighting the good fight…fighting for another…fighting for self…putting myself aside…watching as I tend to another…

Peace comes as I watch the branches move and sway…knowing I am a powerful force…and that I will be cared for…all I have to do is ask…

Peace comes and stays…when I look at the true Me…

And look about at all the majestic things this divine spirit has done…

Even cleaning the toilet…

Even rubbing someones tired feet..when they told you to take a hike…

Peace is life…

Yet not through some yoga pose slumber….because who am I…once I arise…?

Peace is the constant question….

The constant looking into the boxes we would like to forget….not hoping one day they disappear….because we were good enough…

Peace is knowing…

There is no better moment than right now…

Peace is knowing…I still give a damn….and fighting to always give a damn…
