The purest form of peace can be seen in many more ways than one. There is peace in laying in bed at night wrapped in warm blankets while listening to music or watching TV. There is peace in laying on the sand at the beach while staring at the waves pull away and come back. There is peace in death...

Jesus describes death as someone being in a deep sleep. What is more peaceful than a rest that replenishes your heart, mind, and soul? Death is a part of life. The unfortunate result of inheriting the mistakes made by Adam and Eve.

I think about death all the time. If there is a death out there that is painless and dare I say it, enjoyable. I have thought up many scenarios ranging from drowning in a bathtub to being shot in the head three times.

One of my favorite scenarios was dying slowly while laying in the middle of a field of flowers freshly in bloom while being high.

Enough about death even though in my opinion that would be my ideal way into the world of peace of tranquility.

What really is peace?
The dictionary definition of peace is freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility.

Seems simple enough? Wrong. It's not. Why do you think people go on lifelong spiritual journeys or on some eat, pray, love quest? To find peace. It takes time and effort. The path to finding peace and tranquility is never going to be straight. It has curves, bumps, potholes, etc. You will want to kill yourself and maybe scream from time to time. Now that I think about it, if you were high or drunk during it all it may be slightly easier but that would be another setback and is not very good for your health.

What are you expecting from life? From this peace that you so desperately want to wash over you? It's funny because I am literally typing whatever comes out of my head and it's quite freeing and peaceful. Even if no one takes the time to read what I have to say...what I am trying to get at is to find what frees you. What sets your soul on fire and keeps you going.

I have to say, this is all over the place but I hope whoever reads this finds their way to the end and realizes what I am trying to point out. Peace and happiness should be your main goal in life. Don't give up until you find both things. You deserve it. This is the only life you have to live, so make it worthwhile.
