The True nature of Peace
Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
- Walt Whitman

A peaceful scene in Tarlton (Gauteng, South Africa).
For me, total peace is to be found in nature – the biggest problem seems to dissipate in the face of the beauty of a sunrise or a sunset, the birds singing, or while walking in the rain… And as you lose yourself in the moment, you realise that this Peace is the natural radiation of Living in the Now, seeing only the Present and nothing of the Past or the Future.
