Peace is found Within

There is no looking for crowd validity.
There is no waiting for outside redemption. 
There is no collective bargaining to rely on.  
. . . Peace is found Within . . .

“What is Peace? Where is it? and How can I attain it?”

What is this ‘Peace Within’.
What is it not? It is not a separate place for I am a part of the whole of it. There is no me or my, hers or theirs.
If I feel it — I serve it.
There I will find my peace

What of the strife within this apparent separate self.
Do I sit or stand but not wobble.

( There is some confusion here as to what I am getting at. Sandy, has suggested I try to write my way into understanding my meaning. I will try that.)

Can my will be a tool of my peace.
If I wobble, can I accept it as being in uncertainty. Neither finding security in doing nor not doing but in letting go.
There I will find my peace

Through the outward dimension, I find peace in motion, in movement. Within the inner dimension, I find peace in stillness, in the empty spaciousness. These two apparent opposite direction. Compliment each other.
They form the whole that is my peace.

I find Peace Alone. I find Peace in Community. I find Peace in Nature. I find Peace in the City. Neither one nor the other. Both. One Whole.

And when I think I have it figured out, all neat and tidy, I let that go for my Peace is not in the realm of knowing something. But rather in my empty receptivity that is my ‘not knowing‘. There is my peace that passeth understanding.

Editing In-Process SANDY ? — ORAL SPEECH versus WRITING
Not in crowd validity.
Nor in waiting for outside redemption. 
Nor in collective bargaining  
Peace is found Within

Sandy, When we compare the two stanzas above. The top one is in good written form. The 2nd one although not as efficient and compact as the written one, to me it conveys a voice I like to call ‘Oral Speech’. Can both forms have their place in writing ?
