I thought this was beautiful, found it on the EI forum:
Peace is a quality
-not a pact, not an arrangement. It is everywhere it is fighting it is eating is sleeping is walking is looking is pain and tears and laughter and bleeding. It is activity and inactivity. It is the wind and the trees, it is the world and the laws of the universe.
It isn't something like a compromise, it cannot be false in any way. It cannot be bargained or contracted or cheated or spoiled. It is there to be seen by those that can see it. It is a quality to carry with you into everything then there cannot be excess, cannot be too little, it is a perfect balance. Silent but engaged. Tranquillity with ferocious storms. It is a lot like the world because the world is always at peace.
Mankind can know peace, it doesn't. Mankind is not at peace, it is always at war. It has never been with the fluttering of a struggling mallard or felt overcome by joy upon meeting it. It hasnt looked with sadness at the people playing their tricks upon you. Or with love upon the crows ripping the garbage bags. It has never let things BE and been with it. Never lived life and have it mature you.
Mankind is against existence it lives an empty existence. It can produce only chaos.
