So we think again and this time we might see peace as a place, a physical location.
We imagine a solitary setting among a forest of trees or along an expansive deserted beach.
We are almost lulled into believing that if we can find a place of solitude then we will find peace.
Many of us remember the Australian television series ‘Sea Change’ and the promise that leaving the big city behind for country living on the coastline would bring peace.
But quickly we discover this is unrealised. So we stop and reflect, privately acknowledging that we knew all along it was not true!
You see, we have each known peace walking along a deserted beach and on a quiet country walk but we have also experienced peace in the middle of a built up city, attending a football match and in the slums of the developed world.
Peace it seems is not a geography.
Find time today to reflect in your place of peace.
Love these thoughts Kelley. ‘Peace is not a geography.’
