Does peace come graciously from above, or is peace developed skilfully within? Can it be both at once? Discuss

    >I want peace
    Remove the 'I' (ego) and the 'want' (desire) and you'll have peace.

    Peace is an objective material circumstance not a feeling.

            This doesn't mean anything. Mental peace is just delusion if there is external turmoil.

            You haven't tasted one iota of self-mastery so you just assume everyone else is faking it.

            You can react rationally to outer turmoil and still be at peace.
            You have a choice on how to react to thing, it just very hard as our emotion interfere.
            Something bad happening in your life will still be just as bad if you react negatively and create more suffering in the process.

            No you can't moron that's the point. If your external circumstances are tumultuous then you are objectively not at peace, feeling calm in your mind is just creating a mental condition that doesn't align with your material circumstances aka delusion. You people harass, abuse, terrorize, threaten etc me if I think thoughts that make me happy and call me "delusional" for it until you make moronic threads like this where you pretend you want me to do the opposite of what you actually want because in actual fact you want me to be miserable internally externally and you rape my mind every second of every day to make sure that my mental condition is just as miserable as my external circumstances

            There isn't external turmoil unless you're delusional.
            There's a high chance you ware delusion because either watch too much fake news or you're a troony.
            Ill go with both.

    Peace is within. One of the essential attributes of the soul/self is bliss, it is only because of spiritual ignorance that most of us (myself included) do not experience this in our daily lives. The atman is ever free and blissful, there is no need to acquire peace from some external object
