"I WANT PEACE!"
What's the importance of these words? First, let's look at the word, "I". Ego is attached with I. The word "want" is an expression of desire.
If you remove these two words, "I" and "want", you have only one thing left: peace
All of creation is One; an Eternal Oneness. Animals, trees, and flowers know this beingness, this oneness, not with an intellectual knowing, but a knowing which comes from stillness and just being, a beingness that comes only in the moment of Now.
The great spiritual master, Jesus, said, "Look at the lilies, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin."
Those who really want peace in their lives will let go of all ego and desire. Drop all negativity as if you're holding a hot coal in your hand.
