Peace isn’t a place.
It’s not somewhere we go to.
It’s not something we practice in a special room or at a special time.
Peace isn’t a feeling.
It’s not your inner “high.”
It’s not a tingle that makes you pleased with yourself.
Peace is a time.
A time that’s detached from reaction
A time that’s present.
Peace is an action.
Active in our speech with ourselves and others.
Active in our actions, no matter how inconvenient.
Peace is a practice.
Like an instrument we’re learning to play, we hit some crappy notes.
Like a game we play as a child, we do it with joy and fun.
