Peace descends without notice
… and disappears just as randomly.
There is no controlling the transcendent flow
… except by not controlling.
The ups and downs of life continue
… sometimes around the wheel
… sometimes spread out like a roller coaster.
The mountain does not come to Mohammed.
The mountain has nothing to do with it.
The mountain just is.
The river flows.
The riverbank changes.
The rain falls when it becomes too heavy
… and then it evaporates and rises again.
There is a pattern to the world.
There are currents in play.
Resisting does not change the universe.
Accepting does not change the universe.
Peace descends when it is ready.
We can be peaceful
… or not
… at will.
