Peace

Sorry haven't posted in a while, been busying finishing up paper on monastery experience and playing single dad for a week.  Thought this quote on peace would be apropos for the week.  Will post again soon.  

"Perhaps peace is not, after all, something you work for, or ‘fight for.’ It is indeed ‘fighting for peace’ that starts all the wars. Peace is something you have or do not have. If you are yourself at peace, then there is at least some peace in the world. Then share your peace with everyone, and everyone will be at peace."

Thomas Merton, from Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander
