The Heart of Peace
How do we get to the heart of peace? Are there directions or guidelines for reaching it, whether it is personal or social in nature? Are there markers and signs that point "This way to the Heart of Peace?" What is at the the very heart and center of peace? Is there one way, or are there many ways to peace? Is the notion of peace itself too simplistic, or is it just too complex?
The lens through which we look to find the heart of peace defines where we will find it and what it will be. Like a flashlight illuminating only the spot on which the stream of light lands, we will usually only see the small area on which we are focussing.  The rest remains in darkness, we believe, though the heart of peace may also be in these dark spaces. It is a matter of perspective.
Our own vision of peace is also a mirror reflecting back to us our own conception of peace. We must look beyond the surface of the mirror to the deeper meanings of peace if we are to come to the heart of peace itself. What if the heart of peace is the heart of life itself, and the way to it is through the small daily moments and events which ripple accross the surface of our hours, perhaps disturbing and challenging us? The way is not simple, and it is often laden with obstacles, but the journey is not solitary, and the heart of peace is present within each moment if one looks more deeply and far below the surface. There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.
The heart of peace is present here and now. Peace to you this day. Peace.
