What is peace?

Words of Wisdom on Peace from Pravs:

"We often say that we want a peaceful life.
We wish to be at a place where there is
no noise, no trouble or no hardwork.

But this does not actually mean peace.
To be in the midst of all chaos of life,
and still be calm in your heart -
is what 'peace' is."

Take a moment to think about it. Think whether your heart is truly peaceful?

At this moment in my life - indeed, there is a lot of chaos. The work related part of it will be gone in 2 weeks when school ends and we break for Christmas. The other part will stay. However, I strongly believe that it is possible to achieve true peace of heart even in the midst of this chaos. And hence I have started to work on it. I know it will be a while (like all things good for us that we wish to achieve), but eventually if we put our mind to it, nothing is unachievable.

In response to your previous blog and this one about how we have no time anymore--

Leisure
(W. H. Davies)

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
