You will not find peace in a self-help book or in a Zen magazine. We must pursue it with all of our gusto it takes, discipline to know our limits and courage to not let others push us past them.
Love. Love is not the feeling or the emotion that so many of us identify it with. Love is the constant commitment that we pledge to those things or relationships we value the most, even when they no longer feel good.
Compassion. Compassion is not feeling sorry enough for someone or some cause to volunteer your time once a month. True compassion comes when we are angry, sad, or happy enough to fight for change of the things that we know should not be.
These are just a few of the constants.
