True peace is not a period of time, or a temporary moment when the guns are not firing. True peace is a state of mind and a stillness of the heart, a gift of the Holy Spirit, for those who have ears to hear and eyes to see. It does not draw its strength from this world, as political power does, but from a deeper place. True Peace is divine. When we choose stillness over aggression, we become the agent of change, an instrument of peace. We are not simply hoping for aggression to stop, we create it with our very presence.
