Anthony and Margie,
Anthony, would it help if you knew that the great all loving all
powerful mother of the universe has you in her arms loving you at
every moment including right now?
She does..... It's called being alive in her arms.... You just simply
need to experience it..... And make that the essence of your
experience in every moment....

Again, a look into history will show you that there is NOTHING that
can ensure peace. Lots and lots of things have been tried through the
ages and peace has never come. It is very ironic, people are willing
to go to war, to kill and be killed over whose "morality" is the
"right" one. It's a hard pill to swallow, I know, but the plain truth
is that peace isn't the nature of most human beings. Or most human
beings cannot see their buddha-nature.
The only thing left is to create a peaceful place within yourself.
There are many ways to do that, zazen, other forms of meditation,
certain therapies, etc. I don't think anyone can find peace in the
world without finding it within themselves first.

performance, the opposite is frequently true.
