Peace

Posted in Uncategorized by bigsleytheoaf on December 18, 2010

There is peace
Though peace is not for us

Peace amidst war is such superficiality
It is only the possibility of stillness in a universe rife with change

Or perhaps the recognition of that rifeness
An acknowledgement of the impossibility of stillness is peace

A belief that the impossibility of stillness is the fact
Can bring a sort of stillness

But perhaps even on this second-order plane there is not stillness
Perhaps our understanding of the changing nature of things is itself always changing

And knowledge of this change is peace
But is also changing and so on

And our knowledge of all of these changes and the changing nature of our understanding thereof
Is peace

And so on and so on
And so on and so on

And we are but the serpent who bites its own tail
And wrestles with itself in the midst of a great gulf

And distancing ourselves from ourselves
Ourselves from that outside ourselves
Cannot bring it

And truth and effort and love
Cannot bring it

We are it if we are it
We touch peace if we touch peace

It is outside and longing
Always humming
Always waiting
Very possible
Still and loving
