I experience peace when I relocate slugs from my garden plants instead of smashing them. I experience peace when I allow others to think whatever they think, but bring my whole self to the table to enjoy their company. I recognize, more and more, the structures built into our dominate society that disallow peace amongst us. As I take myself further away from the mainstream of society, I am working gently toward finding ways to nurture peace-structures within this wider world of all humans, just on my little hill here in New Hampshire, and just bit by bit, a little bit like the way the slugs in my garden work over the lowest leaves of my kale plants first, giving me time to find them new homes and still eat the top leaves to my heart's content.
That's perhaps not so cogent, but it sums up the feeling, and work, of peace I experience today.
