    Love the calmness of that water but also how the mountains go to a single point as if within and meet in the same line as the person who is observing.

    Beautiful picture. Scripture shares Love each other as you love yourself," meaning you have to love yourself first before you can love others.

    Peace comes with loving who you..as is. Not who you think you show be. Forgiving your mistakes, moving onward without always looking back and choosing to becoming a better person one day at a time.

    Resting one day each week is a way to achieve peace in life. Heisenberg's uncertainty principle explains why. Subatomic particles such as electrons are normally very busy and fast moving. If we were to slow an electron down so that we could determine its precise location then the universe or "we" would require the amount of energy that one would typically derive from the detonation of a nuclear bomb. When we slow our lives down, the universe is required to expend a similar amount of energy helping us achieve a peaceful life. Rest means to completely cease from all monetary transactions (Stop buying groceries and things!), to stop gossiping about those around you (Be quiet for heavens sake!), to stop traveling to places outside the city in which you live (Put a damper on your travel!), and to stay away from public events such as live concerts (Rest your ears as well!). Once you get needed time for rest and reflection, your Creator may decide that you are to be rewarded in terms of peace in life as long as He feels that your day of rest was not only genuine, but done in honor of Him. The Creator made all in six days and rested on the seventh day and simply loves it when people do the same in honor of Him.

    The secret formula for peace is as follows: What the Dalai Lama means is that peace begins within our very souls. Peace succeeds when we as a nation as well as individually decide to extend tolerance to both our neighboring countries and to those around us. We must all pray that we have the creativity to explore the many ways we can be tolerant of both other countries as well as to those individuals closest to us. The Devil is the least tolerant of all as the Devil constantly uses his most effective weapon in his arsenal in his constant fight to end our very existence - doubt? Do you remember the story of how the serpent tricked Eve into eating the apple by making her doubt God's command not to eat the apple? Never for even a fraction of a second doubt your constant need to be a friend to God, and God will in return never doubt His need to be a friend back to you and help you in life. There is no better friend to have than God. How does one be a friend to a symbol of good that one can not touch, see, smell or talk to? All we know about God that is thoroughly documented in the book of Genesis is that He made everything in six days and He then rested on the seventh day. One way for us to be God's friend and to honor and respect God is to copy what God did by working hard for six days by helping God create a better world and then resting ourselves on the final seventh day for a period of not less than 24 hours. Resting means the absence of work. We all need a day off from the weekly grind. To satisfy the minimum spiritual/religious/legal definition of rest consider the following: Rest means to completely cease from all monetary transactions (Stop buying groceries and things!), to stop gossiping about those around you (Be quiet for heavens sake!), to stop traveling to places outside the city in which you live (Put a damper on your travel!), and to stay away from public events such as live concerts (Rest your ears as well!). When you rest for twenty four hours or more following six days of hard work trying to make the world a better place to live, then God will support you and everything you do in life as He feels that you are on his side and are truly trying to be His friend. God will then without doubt help you find purpose and success in life. Many people think observing a day of rest per week is optional. It is not. In fact, refusing to rest one day each week is not only a violation of one of the 10 commandments, but it is a blatant denial of the existence of God as well as an open invitation to Satan which has its own extremely serious unforeseen consequences! A few have asked who wrote this. This is a tough question to answer as the writer's role sometimes frequently changes depending on the writer's wishes. A few have asked about the writer's motivation which is really an unnecessary question as the writer's motivation will become evident.

    inner peace is difficult to accept for a lot of people, because to accept inner peace is to accept who we are. Most people live in denial and when you are in denial, you will never see the outer beauty of peace.

    Lakes in the mountains have become such special places for me. Of course, being an Easterner, the mountains are a little smaller and a little rounder than these peaks. But the effect, the calming effect, is the same!
