Love and Peace are Beyond Understanding

Updated on September 3, 2014

Let it rise within you.

Just a pic. Just a sunrise where only a few hundred people will ever see it. Yet through peace and love I have brought it to you. I am sleepy eyed here and wait for a day to dawn. Let the light dawn on you.

Peace and Love

You cannot know what I know without knowing peace and love. That is the end of that story. You can try all that you want and you can give all that you want. You can try to buy your way into what I have but you will not find it. Love and peace are not just something you pick up on a street corner or church or self help group.

Love and Peace are fined tuned acceptances of reality. If you tune on the news your reality is problematic. If you tune on to me your reality is bountiful and a realization of truth and peace and love.

Oh goodness not me as in me. Me as in what I will reveal. It is awesome but not for the faint of heart. This is not for the rookie who "just found God". We say that hell has two disciples. Ones who do not want to go there and those who have been there.

Baby come back, I was wrong, you can blame it all on me. I was wrong.

Let us get down to business

Peace. Peace is not a cessation of warring nations -- that is armistice and treaty. Peace is within you and all you have is in peace. I do not speak of some great revelation or of mighty birds of thunder reigning "all hail". I speak of your love towards yourself. Can you be at peace with yourself.

I shall tell you of no peace or piece of mind. This is also within us. I am so sorry that peace is not a default rest position. It is a struggle in our world but we can find it if we look deep and stay there for just a few minutes.

The addict knows no peace or price of mind. You are addicted. You may just be addicted to writing or maybe just your routine. Or maybe to a job. Or to a church regimen. Or maybe to your garden or child.

Let me mess with that and you have no peace. I own you if you are such addicted. But let go and I own no piece of you.

Peace is in you. Let no one deceive you and let no model bring you to peace. Look inward and find your peace. It is there and I promise you can find it. You see that if your peace comes from without then you are imprisoned by that which brings you peace. Take addiction to your child. You must bring your peace to that child and not get peace from that child, for if you do you are codependent on that child and that is not peace at all but a fake.

Is it possible to lift us where we belong. A world we know and the Eagles cry. YES!! It is possible.

One would be at peace either climbing this pinnacle or just looking up at it. I am glad I climbed it.

Here is a hard part.

Peace in God. It is a wonderful notion and no doubt many have found peace in God. But it cannot be a God of our understanding. It cannot be a God of others. For understanding is mental and what others tell you is simply sensory.

However if you truly let God within you then you will be inseparable from God and that peace is the peace I speak of. You actually become a piece of peace. And peace becomes a piece of you.

Do not forget the love that exhumes itself from deep within a dead and broken heart. When peace is restored and it becomes in need of expression and action it reaches for the closest thing it can and that is love.

Once we have found peace within ourselves we can love ourselves and that is the key to happiness. A friend always tells me "Eric wherever you go, there you are". If I can learn to love that peace within me it makes not difference the circumstances, things or location. I have love.

But that love is only a stepping stone to the love of others and the actions that go along with that.

Can you find it just sitting here reading this?

Have you found the peace that resides in you?

I would venture to say that if you have peace and love that all things are possible.

Add faith and hard work and life does not know a boundary, not age, not time and not anything else. There is nothing that cannot be accomplished.

Peace as a platform for all kinds of things make them work and work better. Judgment and discernment cannot be well exercised without some peace. Oh you may think you are doing just awesome by plowing ahead and "making the hard decisions" and "getting it all done" but you are not doing it well without peace.

A ninety year old mother of two dies. One has come to peace and had peace before her death. One has no peace and is filled with less than peaceful feelings. Who do you want to handle all the arrangements? Rage and resentments and compulsive behavior is the opposite of a peaceful person and yet we see those folks everywhere. Just watch the news and you see the opposite of peace in people. Yes it is what "makes the news".

But peace is what makes the world go round in a better way. Have you ever seen a really angry emergency room doctor? If you have I hope you ran hard to the next hospital.

Let us wrap this bad boy up!

Love and peace are awesome. You are awesome. You deserve to love yourself and find that inner and true peace. Call me at 858-7360-4432 if you just cannot deal with the lack of peace. Do not suffer one more hour of loneliness. Let someone else in and love yourself. Peace is your right, no matter the outside crazy world.

Please remember that you can fake love and peace until you make it. Fake it 'til you make it. It works and soon love and peace will find you. Kiss a baby, give yourself a nice bath, eat some comfort food and just try to love again - you that is.

Check this out it is fun and maybe illegal - more fun!

      Wonderful insight you have shared here, dear Eric. I know in my past I had no peace whatsoever, then as my relationship with our sweet Lord grew more intimate and personal and actually believed all of His promises, I now know of that peace, His peace, the peace that passes all understanding. How amazing. So great, so great is His faithfulness.

      I hope your day is beautiful.

      Now that would be a homework assignment: define love. Good luck. It is like defining faith, or grabbing hold of fog. And yet what would live be without either of them?

      " . . . if you have peace and love that all things are possible." I hear you.

      I think of "My peace I leave with you." That has to be the inner peace you mention, Eric, and love has to come from the same source. I don't always own them, but I know where to find them.

      Dora definitely they are in you. I hope we are all looking for progress and no perfection in these areas.

      Since I started writing, I adopted a motto: "Success if being at peace with yourself." When I am at peace, I know that I have done the right thing, no matter what it is. Whether I am writing a sonnet or cooking a dinner, I know that I have succeeded when I feel at peace with myself. Thanks for this poignant reminder that peace is within us!

      Hi Eric, peace is an interesting concept, but I don't think it can exist without God.

      Ologsinquito, for me that is true but I never tried it without God. So I cannot say for others.

      That fake it till you make it thing really does work. One time a lady showed me how it is difficult to be sad and smile at the same time. She was right. Whenever I start to feel overwhelmingly sad about something, I do things that I would do if I was happy. Prayer and singing worship songs is part of that strategy. I pray as if my sadness is already gone and I sing like I'm the happiest little lark on the fence. It really does work.

      I never really considered the notion before that a lack of peace exists because somebody or something owns a piece of us, yet it is true. And you know this because you have climbed that philosopher's pinnacle and heard the eagles cry out "Peaceful Easy Feeling!" Thank you for the very nourishing food for thought. Wonderful hub!

      Marlene it takes little imagination to understand why Psalms are in the Great Book. That singing praise always works wonders for us, thanks for a great comment.
