Peace

peace

Does it ever occur to you that the biggest pursuit of man is the pursuit of peace?
Not the pursuit of happiness!
Not the pursuit of health!
Not the pursuit of wealth!
Happiness, health, wealth and what?… when you eventually add them all to your trophies, you immediately discern a much more deeper need…though it has been subjective all these while, yet it is the real objective need of man.

Peace.

Just the feeling that there is no harm in your way…that everything in your life is at their highest sense of perfection…that your job continues to excite you with a divine preoccupation…that your relationships make you feel alive…that your solitude make you want more out of life and you keep looking for more opportunities to express yourself…that your life doesn’t take a long hard look before one can touch the meaning in it…

Does this look Utopian?

Well, but that’s what we all really long for! We want stability, we want power, we want peace…even with the unreasonableness of expecting people to conform to your new agenda, there is no harm in considering a new possibility. Seek what you want. Never mind what the world thinks…you will get it. Seek peace!

…seek, and ye shall find…
