Re: The Restoration of Peace
One more idea for you Matthew. As I talk about and state about the spiritual side I'll put this perspective into it.
Spiritually you can learn to keep and remain in calmness, stillness, peacefulness, loving and with harmony. Now, this includes staying stable as such whilst observing and accepting and understanding the continuous state of flux, of continuous change in the physical universe.
This is Aikido in action from my view. The opponent being that state of flux you as a calm self harmonize with and handle and bring back to a state of peace.
So these spiritual realities don't take you away from physical but rather put you in better communication with and thus happier.
