Perhaps you find that peace begins to dominate your longings and your fantasies. You yearn to finally reach a place where you want peace more than anything - more than being right, or hanging on to righteous indignation, peace more than cure, peace more than blame. You long for peace to light up your days and soothe your nights.

Everyone tries to define this thing called Character. It's not hard. Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking.

True peace is not in conflict with the search for what's true and right. Wanting peace "more than anything else" can lead to moral apathy, ignoring the injustices in society in the name of not wanting to "disrupt the social harmony" or one's own inner "harmony" or similar rationalizations. Real peace is not the absence of all conflict, nor is it the suppression of all conflict. Conflict is part of the natural process of working things out, figuring out right from wrong, true from false, and working through how to resolve different interests and priorities, whether personal or social. Real peace comes from facing conflict constructively, without either suppression or belligerence. Real peace comes from learning how to resolve conflicts without blowing each other up in the process.

Apparently Hu-Gog wrote this in reference to his own personal and family experiences. In his later years he saw no purpose in holding on to past hurts and grievances and he came to accept that his family dynamics were generally paved with the best intentions. So he believed that letting go of conflict was a legitimate way of dealing with it within his family at least.

He was very concerned about wider social issues and so on, but he resolved to only fight battles that had the potential to make a real difference. He tried to never waste his emotional energy with frivolous matters that were often more about ego, blame, righteous indignation and futile anger than right or wrong. He believed that most conflict was shadow boxing anyway. Presumably this led him to the peace and equilibrium that he wanted. I'll get the quote in here:

"Don't sweat the small stuff"
Richard Carlson

I think he would have tried to live by this adage.

Unfortunately I can't find his name on the internet.

In the context of petty grievances, I agree. The problem is that I have seen similar words used far too often to gloss over real conflict, and real issues of concern, in order to maintain the illusion of a Happy Bubble in which one can always feel "peaceful," and to mistake this sweeping-under-the-rug for genuine peace. I agree there's no point to holding on to bitterness and resentment, but neither is there a (good) point to pretending everything is O.K. when it is not. And unfortunately sometimes pleading for "peace" ends up being used as a tool for suppression of dissent and of genuine concerns. The trick is to find the right balance between unconstructive contentiousness and equally-unconstructive happy-face denial. Conflict must be dealt with appropriately, but it must be dealt with, not ignored or suppressed or run away from.

Of course, I agree that feeling peaceful and having inner peace are different things, and genuine concerns should be dealt with constructively. Actually, I haven't met anyone yet who lives in a happy bubble or even wants to - well maybe in the late 60s LOLflag I've personally never seen anyone pleading for peace and end up supressing genuine grievances either. It would take more than pleading to shut up the people I know Rolling Eyes But I certainly have seen serious, intelligent people strive to find inner peace by becoming aware that their emotions tend to rule their thoughts, and that they can let go of some of the battles they thought were important, without sacrificing integrity, if they are not so ego-driven.

I have run into this, in a few different contexts, and I was also an ethics major in college, so whenever I see someone say anything along the lines of "nothing is more important than peace," or denigrating "being right," a red flag goes up for me right away. I have seen people argue that there is no such thing as right or wrong, it's all just a matter of opinion, and that is one assertion I will never accept as anything other than a load of B.S. I also have run into the obsessive need to be right over the most inanely trivial matters Laughing so I get what you're saying, too. I just feel it's important to underscore that sometimes it really is more important to establish what's right and true than to "be peaceful" in a superficial sense. True inner peace is more a sense of solidity and groundedness that carries one through the "weather" of conflict and "figuring things out."

Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks -- we will also find our path of authentic service in the world.

There is an endless net of threads throughout the universe...
At every crossing of the threads there is an individual.
And every individual is a crystal bead.
And every crystal bead reflects
Not only the light from every other crystal in the net
But also every other reflection
Throughout the entire universe.
an adaptation of The Net of Jewels, or Indra's Net, one of the oldest written creations of humanity

Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict -- alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence.

Conflict is the gadfly of thought. It stirs us to observation and memory. It instigates to invention. It shocks us out of sheeplike passivity, and sets us at noting and contriving.

I was googling for quotes on peace and conflict and suppression, and ran across my own words. That didn't take long! Laughing

William R. Bradford
Our lives can become cluttered by many things. Some are obvious, such as material things, the stuff we collect. I really wish I were able to give a lesson on how to prioritize the material things-how to sort them, dispose of some, and put the rest in order-but I'm not qualified... But how well I know that we can surround ourselves with the material things to the extent that we have no time for the spiritual. Look around and you will see all the gadgets and toys and the nice and the fun things that cause us to squander and pay and to wander and play.

Eric Hoffer
Every era has a currency that buys souls. In some the currency is pride, in others it is hope, in still others it is a holy cause. There are of course times when hard cash will buy souls, and the remarkable thing is that such times are marked by civility, tolerance, and the smooth working of everyday life.
