Some Thoughts On Peace



We all would like to live in peace…there are many ways to do so…we don’t want to be the guy who smokes too much marijuana and does yoga all day…at least some of us don’t…we all want peace, but where to find it?...we can learn to find peace by letting go…letting go of judgements, expectations, trying to force things to be a certain way…instead we can learn to adopt and adapt…we can adopt a new attitude…one that is free of negativity…we can adapt to a changing world…we may not like all the changes and that’s ok…as long as we don’t fight it and get ourselves into a tizzy over it…it’s usually not worth it…years later, we look back and we can’t remember half of what we thought was important at the time…peace is nowhere to be found, but inside of the mind and much of that is up to you.

  1. The Tao Te Ching says that in pursuing knowledge every day something is added, but in pursuing Tao every day something is released.

    From another perspective, this was reinforced last night in push hands class. (Push hands is a form of tai chi sparring, for lack of a better description.) When I was practicing with the teacher, I realized that every time I pushed, even the tiniest bit, he could tell where my "center" was, and get me off balance. Actually, I was getting myself off balance. Be like water, be like water!!
