The following is another attempt of a poem by me, this poem basically tells of why peace is so hard to obtain and keep. This poem was actually inspired by a Google community based primarily on peace.
The antiquity of peace
as ancient as it is
is still within us all
being so hard to keep
in these days
of it's presence
is it still their
as it is
and we still wonder
of it's presence
as it should be
as peace is
as it is
and we still wonder
the presence of peace
is as it should be
is not peace
Elusive Peace: Peace seems to represent everything that motionlessness or timelessness represents, it's still within it's motionlessness, it's quiet within it's motionlessness, it's harmonious within it's motionlessness and it's tranquil within it's motionlessness. So is peace based on this motionlessness instead of perceived love?
Love is full of motions because of the emotions behind love, you can't experience love without emotion, try expressing love without causing motion, it's just not going to occur because love is based on emotions which are primarily of motion. Now try expressing a true sense of peace, it's absolutely motionless because this is what peace is primarily based on. Now try finding this peace within a chaotic highly motional dimension, peace seems to not exist anymore because it's motionless, there is so much motion out there that this motionlessness is overwhelmed by excessive extreme motions.
Because we are so desperate to override this highly motional chaos, we will use anything that seems to quell all this motion that is overwhelming peace. We are at present using love, which is highly motional, to quell another highly motional state of existence, basically fighting fire with fire. Fighting fire with fire can be very volatile, especially when the wind turns. What actually occurs when you fight fire with fire? Destruction to save even worse destruction, well, hopefully. Sometimes this is the only way to fight fire but in the end it's the quietness of the fire that actually quells the fire, not fire itself.
Now does this mean we shouldn't use love even in conjunction with peace?
Not at all, it's not the use of love that is giving us problems, it's the way we are using love that is the problem even when used in conjunction with peace.
Peace Creates Love: We first think that peace is created from love when it's the other way around. A good internet friend of mine expressed that inner peace has to be established before a true sense of love can be expressed. It's true, try expressing love when you have no inner peace to start with, any love expressed in this way, can't be possibly true, most often it's proved to be so in the end. Basically, this kind of love is euphoric as it's based on the finite, it's transitory especially when pressed or tested.
Now what about using love in conjunction with peace, even after we have established that it's peace that brings forth love, not the other way around.
Let's firstly look at love and peace, love represents motion, peace represents motionlessness. Considering that all motion is time based, love is of time which means peace is of timelessness as it's of motionlessness. This also means love is of three dimensional aspects while peace is of anything but a three dimensional aspect. We basically have a representation of yin and yang, love and peace.
Love = motion + time + three dimensional + finite + yin
Peace = motionlessness + timelessness + non-third dimensional + infinite + yang
Yes, they represent opposite values to each other, however, they are only opposing opposites when we use them in an imbalanced way. Used in a balanced way, one becomes the other, for this to occur though, we must realise it's peace that creates love, not the other way around. It's obvious many of us are nowhere near realising this, pushing for peace in this way, isn't going to bring peace, this is evident in our present state.
Now what if we used love and peace in a balanced way, will this automatically bring peace and love to the world?
Human Family: No, not when we try to bring love back into a situation that is not peaceful in the first place. Try perceiving the human consciousness (race) as a family unit, this is your family with the surname(last name) of human. Now this family unit is obvious within it's discord, basically, a non-peaceful family unit, as of our own selves that are not at peace. Can we instil love before this family unit is at peace? The answer is no, now consider this, human consciousness is nowhere near at peace but we are still trying to instil love!!
Try instilling love within a family that is in discord, the collective human consciousness as a whole is no different. Certain family members will rebel against such brash actions and justifiably so as is the same with certain members of the human race. Using love and peace in conjunction, doesn't mean we use them at the exact same time either, it means using them in balance overall. We must remember here, it's peace that automatically brings the love back into a family unit, used in unison by the family itself, love and peace within the family becomes infinite.
All we need to do is focus on peace, and love is sure to follow.......Mathew G

The collective, family: Our direct family is a collective as the human species is, would a caring parent turn their backs on the illness of the rest of their family if they too are ill? No, you can heal yourself from your own illness but will this heal the rest of your family, the collective? The point is we are all in this together, we are all family, a collective, if we keep ignoring the illnesses within the rest of the family, such illnesses will again infect or affect us in some way. OK, we have selfishly healed ourselves while ignoring the rest of the collective, this just isn’t going to work and obviously isn’t working.
There is an emphasis on healing yourself first and obviously foremost, you can’t heal the world so you heal yourself, where has the oneness gone in this, there isn’t any, it’s still about me above all else. This mentality is only adding to the illness the collective is being infected with.
To heal properly, we obviously need to firstly become aware of what causes such illness within the collective. The answer is always ignorance or an unawareness of how diseases occur and spread throughout the collective, lack of hygiene is certainly a major contributing factor here. I’m however not talking about physical diseases here but diseases of the mind that effect the mentality.
Now to heal, one must be aware and caring otherwise the healing process just won’t work, this includes being aware and caring of oneself. The main emphasis at the moment seems to on oneself, especially in Western cultures, a lot of spiritual aware people are even using this for financial gain. Tricking people into healing themselves over and above the collective seems to be the main drawing card here, this is basically like teaching parents to heal themselves over and above all other family members, like I said, what caring parent would do such a thing? The problem is, we are taught not to care by staying ignorant to other people’s illnesses within the collective, in the family. Don’t make the mistake in thinking we are not all family, we are, we are all in this together.
It’s however wise to keep yourself free of these diseases as much as possible, how is a seriously ill parent going to heal their family? You must try to keep yourself healthy but not at the cost of your family, we need to all heal together or not at all for the healing process to be sustainable.
Signs of illness: Any unbecoming behaviour is always a sign of an illness within the collective, the family, this is easily recognisable by observing the kind of tendency being expressed, either it be destructive or constructive. Blowing up innocent people and beheading them is a certain sign of a serious illness within the family, it’s highly destructive. Now it’s too easy to judge these people as being just bad in some way while ignoring a serious illness within them and the collective, it’s also too easy to just focus on oneself and ignore the rest of the plight within the family. By just focusing on ourselves is allowing these diseases to spread to epidemic proportions. We are only seeing these disease within the collective as something bad to be ignored for our own sakes, I’m good, they are bad, this kind of attitude isn’t obviously helping. What we need to do is treat everyone of the collective as a family member, not just something bad. Start looking at these people as being ill instead of bad is a good start to a healing process that is sustainable.
Individually we can’t heal these people, don’t even try, as a collective we can heal these people but how? Again, stop judging these people as just being bad as opposed to you being good, this kind of judgmental segregation isn’t going to help anyone including yourself, certainly not in the long run.
Healing process: The main healing process take one to be aware, by voicing your own awareness as much as possible will assist in this collective healing process. It only takes ignorance to become ill, it makes sense it will take simple awareness to heal such illnesses like physically being more hygienic, but most importantly, without going to the extreme.
What’s the best way to stop illnesses? The physical immune system needs a certain amount of infection to stay healthy, the collective immune system is no different. To me, we have had centuries of building up on our collective immune system, the problem is now is our ignorance to this immune system that actually does exist within the collective as it does within our own physical bodies, we are basically overdosing on these inflections, we are over doing a good thing I feel.
The healing process basically takes us to be aware, sticking our heads in the sand (ignoring) the plight of the rest of our family isn’t going to be sustainable because the immune system, over all, is obviously failing. Yes, we can strengthen our own personal immune system but don’t be fooled, this is not going to help the collective, this is obvious, we need to be more aware of this.
Where has the oneness in the world gone? When you go into other more aware realities, each entity treats the other as family, we don’t do this within this reality, we treat each other as something undesirable and ignore their illnesses, we actually deserve what we get for doing this. This kind of mentality is a part of the illness, remembering, illness is always brought about by being ignorant, unaware.
Being aware of true oneness, our truer whole family, will help us to heal. This is funny however, I have parted ways with certain family members of mine, I realise I can’t individually heal them on my own, especially when there unaware of their own illness. I was also aware I needed to stay reasonably healthy. You must realise, if one person is ill, this illness will effect us in some way, basically we are all sick with the same illness to one degree or another, the worse thing you can do is try to separate yourself from this as this only leads to segregation not oneness. The funny thing is, if we were all aware of our true nature, our true oneness to each other, illnesses wouldn’t and couldn’t exist within such an aware collective state. Awareness is certainly the key to healing the collective so speak out and share.
