Striving for Peace

Peace is our goal
Peace is our mission
Peace is a simple task
Peace is the hardest task
But we must always be striving for Peace
Not the pauses between wars
Peace with no wars, save the ones we constantly fight within
(Where we truly strive for peace)

    "War and Peace," they say.
    When everyone wants "a piece,"
    how can there be peace?

    Here: "Make peace, not war."
    Easy to say; hard to live.
    No "piece;" then there's peace.

    Well said @FleaMarket

    The theory is simple as @Lionduck and @Vimalajāti mentions but not always easy to implement because of our 'hurt karma' if I can put it like that.

    I will recommend again a metta/tonglen practice I use when walking. Yep active walking meditation. Breath in negativity from your walking environment and breath out metta/rainbows of goodwill.

    We are a piece of peace …

    We are a piece of peace …

    Do not tell this to people; 'you are a piece of peace'. They might hear something different … :o
