Finding peace

In druid ceremonies we call for peace in each direction and for peace throughout the world. This month we remember the outbreak of the First World War a hundred years ago. At that time it was said that war would not happen again yet here we are with conflicts in many parts of the world. So how do we find peace?

Inner peace is important for us all and sometimes that can be hard to find. If we are always angry or wanting something that others have, then we will not find inner peace. If we want to change others then again we will not find inner peace. Why are there so many conflicts going on in many places in the world? Is it because people want to control others, or to gain land or just to fight? Gandhi said that an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

But back to inner peace. If you are happy with who you are and what you have then finding your inner peace will be much easier. It is also about accepting and respecting others and respecting nature too. How do you find your inner peace? Do you have special places to go where you can find this inner peace?

    For myself, it’s about dwelling with a quietened mind, or rather a mind that doesn’t take itself at all seriously. So it’s more about simple presence of being than objectifying the world in thought. With this method, there is no need to go anywhere of course. Feelings tend to be more disruptive of inner peace, though they again can be viewed without identifying with them.

    With gratitude and respect.
