Cultivate Peace

This brings us to the fourth of our "Five Cultivates," Cultivate Peace.

In many ways, peace is both the end and the means of our quest. What I have been calling "happiness" for nearly a year is really a sense of peace, or well-being. It is a lack of turmoil, tsuris, dukkha.

And how do we attain it? We start with it. We end with it. Borrowing and adapting from a couple of traditions, let us say:

Peace before me
Peace behind me
Peace above me and under my feet
Peace within me
Peace around me, and in all whom I meet.

With peace may I walk.
With peace before me, may I walk.
With peace behind me, may I walk.
With peace above me, may I walk.
With peace below me, may I walk.
With peace all around me, may I walk.

It is finished in peace.
It is finished in peace.

Cultivate Peace, and you'll be happier.
