There is no outward representation for peace.
we can look to examples all around us,
and while there might be evidence of the opposite,
the creator force inside us
if we shine our attention on It,
can motivate us to rise out of bed,
can motivate us
to face injustice,
can help us hold our core values
within our hearts,
despite what is happening –
though I do think this is not easy
all the time, and therefore, like holding oneself
by virtue of the muscles of ones own legs,
one needs to rest from time to time
in the center of one’s own being
for a while,
for renewal and for strengthening.
Inside us is the whole peace ensemble.
Inside us is the access to trust,
Inside us is the fuel for living through –
and beyond the terrible rage that threatens with violence,
which is only the weather –
that must pass,
for it cannot stay forever.
