Peace generates joy generates hope generates action generates effort generates accomplishment generates peace…There’s an infinite number of such chains that converge back to the generating notion. If you understand that you will be home anywhere in the universe.
The generating notion is simple, and it’s internal love for self. I would add internal understanding of self as a bonus, but not a requirement — as long as you let your deepest love guide you, even if you understand nothing else of what is happening within you, then you can find peace anywhere, in any situation.
It’s easy to ball up with hatred, in the midst of confusion and chaos, in the wake of a brutal attack on humanity. How can such gratuitous scenes still be unfolding in our world? Because we are all a little broken, yet we all demand perfection or purity from others, in some way.
I don’t pretend to have the answer, nor do I wish to spout preachy ideologies.
