Where Is Peace?

Peace can only come when reason rules. If we are unreasonable about anything including demanding or expecting peace, we are defeating ourselves. Remember that the search for peace begins and ends within the mind. It is reasonable to presume that others will try to disturb our peace, or that things will happen that will challenge our peace. If we realize this, we can better remain in peace even in the most turbulent of waters. As Confucius once said, “It is better to live in peace than in bitterness and strife.”
