PEACE IS ALREADY HERE
You may imagine that there are wars or violence happening somewhere on the planet right now. According to the ‘Global Peace Index’, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, South Sudan, Ukraine, Libya and India/Pakistan are currently involved in wars or violent armed conflict.
But why do I say that you ‘imagine’ there are wars? Because in ‘Reality,’ there is nothing but Peace in those war zones right now. How so? Because the conceptualizing mind of man does not dictate what Reality is. It is actually the conceptualizing mind of man that is responsible for the appearance of all of the wars and armed conflicts around the globe – when in Reality, there is only Peace. Reality is what is present when the mind of man has been paused.
So, if you go into any active war zone right now, and you removed all of the people in it, there would be nothing but Peace. Birds would start singing, butterflies would starting ‘butterflying’, squirrels would be ‘squirreling’, fragrant flowers would be blooming, etc. Peace is the only actual inherent Reality in all places, at all times. You see?
So how is this already-existing Peace covered-up? It is covered-up by the mind of man that creates, sustains and perpetuates stories (imaginations) about what it believes is happening, thus covering-up what actually ‘IS’ (Peace). Man does not know himself as he truly is.
Every man and woman is in Reality a thought-free being. You were born into this world a thought-free being and existed that way for years before you learned language and had the ability to string words together to make sentences and thoughts (concepts/imaginations). It is this overlay on your thought-free beingness that has created war where there actually never was/is any in Reality.
The separation created by the conceptualizing mind of man, i.e., nationality, religion, political party, ethnicity, race, etc, is responsible for all of the violence we imagine to exist in the world today. As long as man believes in his conceptualizing mind as the arbiter of Truth and Reality, he will be bound to suffer the imaginations he entertains. This is what is known as the avoidable and unnecessary pain and suffering we see in the world today.
Peace is already always here. Always.
