something like peace

September 23, 2008

There’s been a recent surge of people finding my blog by searching for “peace.” It seems like we idealize peace so much when we want it and feel so close to scraping its surface yet remain too far from fully finding it. There’s too many levels of chaotic movement to be found among countries, lives, people, societies, selves. We must still the chaos while maintaining the momentum and interactions that create meaning in  life. There is something of an ungraspable paradox of peace and of everything worth having:

Stillness is what creates love. Movement is what creates life. To be still and still moving, that is everything.
