"Man seeks for himself, in whatever manner is suitable for him, a simplified and lucid image of the world, and so to overcome the world of experience by striving to replace it to some extent by this image.

This is what the painter does, and the poet, the speculative philosopher, the natural scientist, each in his own way. Into this image and its formation, he places the centre of gravity of his emotional life, in order to attain the peace and serenity that he cannot find within the narrow confines of swirling, personal experience."

by Einstein the scientist

Peace comes from everything being in perfect order.

All right. This world is a mess. But the Saints can foresee the order of the next life.

Peace...

Man, that one has been an elusive thing to find.

For me, I have only been able to find peace when I accept things the way they are.

Sure, I can work to change them, but the first step is acceptance.

I find this view is enough to bring about "Peace".

I absolutely agree Laura ... it starts with acceptance and ends with precious experience.
