The Nature of Peace

In fighting death

We destroy life

Crowding the battlefield

In search of peace

When peace is a place

far from the battlefield

far from justice

far from blame

far from right

far from the reasons to fight, to fear, to condemn, to control

It is found within

With the absence of fear

It is an art

Not a science

It is passive

Not aggressive

It is health

Not medicine

It is a way

Not a fix

It is a solution

Not a cry for help

It comes from neither victim nor persecutor

And the nature of peace, or the absence of fear, is completely insane and nutty to binary logic so it is best to not look outside for it.  Good luck and know that you are on your own.  On your own, fearlessly empowered to find what the world would lead you away from.

Danger Triggers Evolution

In the face of most danger you have the option to fight or take flight.
In some cases however, you may realize it is counter intuitive to do either.
This is when you must become clever.
Danger triggers evolution.

Happy Memorial Day!

Today I have been thinking a lot about the soldiers from my old unit and how similar or different soldiers further back in history were.  Joining the Army was like joining a family.  We all had to overcome together and the mission was for everybody to make it.  There was no sense of climbing ladders and kicking others down while fighting to reach the top.  We were a genuine family.  I miss my old battle buddies and I will never forget the life experiences we helped each other through.  I think the soldiers in the past probably had similar experiences growing together to become an efficient family of defenders.  Much love to all who dedicate their lives to defending ours.  Never forget that it is you that they fight for and there should be nothing else worth the sacrifice.
