    What's peace?

    I visit one of the UK's top 10 places for restful tranquility, a town in North Devon, which I consider secrete escapist behaviour.... It has about 3 rivers and the sea and you can hear the sound of running water all the time. There is a great forstest for long walks...

    I'm not a big nature lover type but I do find this increadibly peaceful.

    If I need to kick back at home I take a walk along the river thames.

    I also get peace from restful music....

    I also feel at peace with my siblings...

    Once in a while I take myself off and sit on a deserted beach in Thailand - which is ausome.... I guess sea/water plays a big part in my idea of peace

    But in normal day to day life, there isn't much peace...

    My sense of peace comes when the first and second fingers from my hand are raised and parted.

    The wording's actually more significant here than some people may understand.

    "Where is your sense of peace" is very intentional phrazing, or at least, very specific even if it may not've been intended.

    I had a SO once who insisted that they had "found their balance", in the sense of knowing their place in the world, or at least being emotionally stable no matter whot goes on around them. Chances are, given the wording, this's a very similar concept.

    That being said, "whot do yeu do to escape stress" is not going to be answer, nor is it going to be anything along those lines.

    It's far more likely to be whot yeu personally feel in terms of yeur place in relation to everyone else. If yeu did something, for example, a horrible atrocity... murdered thousands of people or something... chances are yeu would still be 'at peace', because yeu'd have justified it to yeurself as neccesary... it's a concept of being alright with yeur own personal morals and obligations without being weighed down by those of the world around yeu. This can often be a very good thing, and in the example provided, it can show how dangerous it can be as well.

    I, personally, have never attained this sense of personal peace, internal to myself and unrelated to the world around me. Due to how my mind works, I may never be able to. I'm not sure if it's something common to all ENTP's or not, but I put entirely too much emphasis on the opinions of those around me, occasionally even people I don't know, despite the fact that I know I don't care about their opinions, which means I can consciously change my behaviour, but it'll bother me to do so.

    He might just be trying to understand how it's possible for yeu to maintain yeur own morals and beliefs without the pressure felt of everything else around yeu as well. For many people it's a foreign concept to try to understand how one can be 'at peace with themselves' even when everything is falling apart around them.

    I'm not really at peace with myself yet, I probably never will be, but that's my best guess as to whot he means.

    I hear, and hearing I obey; I dance the nothing dance, feet in the air, knives in the ground. And so, suspending their disbelief, they are entertained by the things they do not understand.

    Now may be a bad time to mention I can't juggle ^.~

    Only time I feel peace is when I have music, food for though and a room to pace/dance. I just think and daydream and feel totally content exploring my imagination and he possibilities. I can do it for hours when in the mood as long as no one disturbes me. Or at least doesn't annoy me and hang round too long.

    Thats my preshow ritual for drama stuff. Great when your hyper on red bull and have guitary stuff. Air guitar then pace then air guitar then pace.

    I don't know that I will ever feel peace as a long lasting state, the only time I can pinpoint that was absolutely peaceful was the first few days after having my daughter. It was magic and when I think about it, it brings me temporary thoughts of peace, like remembering all was well with the world.

    The more I think about feeling at peace with something, it is with one thing and then I move on. Then I'm not at peace cause I'm too busy wrestling with the new thing to realize I'm at peace with that old thing. If that makes sense

    I guess I don't understand the question, but I feel the greatest sense of peace in really old libraries filled with ancient goodies. And also when I am outside, surrounded by people and blinking things but I'm walking stealthily around, undetected, with my personal soundtrack blasting away. Good music can take me somewhere else.

    Right around the 6th fret on the G-string of an electric guitar...and bending that C# into a D.

    Any guitarist will know what I mean; the G-string is juuust the right thickness and the tension around the 6th fret is juuust enough that bending that particular string on that particular fret just feels SO good.

    Also...nailing a vocal melody/harmony with someone else in parallel thirds. That's beauty beyond words.




    Okay that was a really personal response. In broader terms, I believe peace for ENTPs comes whenever we have total creative freedom and sheer, unrestrained ability to explore whatever we find interesting at whatever time we want, in an infinitely negotiable and reinventable world where everything is ours for the changing and every curious whim can be explored in exactly as much depth as we want to explore it, and where schedules and deadlines are absolutely unheard of.

    Mmmm I think just creamed my pants. Back in a few.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
