PEACE: And Where to Find It
The reason peace has always been elusive is that everyone is looking for it in the wrong places. You can't make peace, but you can be it
In a world rife with turmoil, Christopher Papadopoulos presents us with a roadmap out our angst. The nations can’t create enduring peace because peace isn’t something you create. On the contrary, it’s already here, waiting for us to notice that it’s a fundamental characteristic of who we are. With a foreword by Eckhart Tolle, Peace—And Where to Find It utilizes questions to guide us on a simple yet profound journey of self-discovery. We learn that world peace isn’t possible without first going within to experience our own inherently peaceful nature. As we become aware of and embody this peace, it begins to manifest as world peace.
This book reveals the relationship between peace and deep body awareness. Presence through body awareness is the “off” switch to the aggravating voice in our head that pretends to be us. The more present we are, the quieter our thoughts and reactions become. We live in peace. The practical suggestions throughout the book are supported by simple yet life-changing techniques readers can use on a daily basis. Everyone from long-suffering individuals who wish to heal themselves, to activists who long to heal the planet, and those who seek clear spiritual guidance will find the answers they are looking for in this book.
