As I've mentioned, if you have definitions or stories about Peace, feel free to submit them.mI will post them, as I'm doing today.
My friend Gwen sent this to me. It's beautiful.
Peace is Dynamic
In that center where peace dwells
Is the empowerment of good.
It is that center from which Life,
In all of its constructive creation
Flows forth, giving expression to
The prescient Spirit of the Eternal.
Centeredness in peace allows the powers
Of good to express -- preempting
Nefarious forms of creation.
It empowers those who actively
Battle destructive influences —
Those who risk their lives defending good.
Centeredness in peace is not political
Nor does it take sides, but rather
Assures that the higher ideal
Results from conflict, rather than
Permitting misguided idealism to usurp
The good that is intended for us.
In the end it blesses both sides,
Helping all to rise to new and
More harmonious relationships.
It becomes a center from which the
Archetype of beneficence emanates,
Revealing the true Spirit of the Eternal.
