Why be?

I wonder how people talk about making peace. It’s a concept that only exists in my distant aspirations. It’s probably not impossible to achieve but seems to require a state of mind that doesn’t really come naturally to some of us and might need to be developed. I wonder, some more, as to what could really fuel this peace. Determination? Willingness? Acceptance? Courage? Ignorance? Indifference?

Is peace really a state of mind? Or do yoga, music, walks, alcohol, meditation and spirituality act as distraction tools?

For some of us, letting and go and ‘let be’ works equally well. Maybe peace is temporary, and we can only resort to some of the above tools in random orders of convenience..in between days of extreme turmoil.
