Many fatalities happen and hurt profoundly at the bottom of some point, where there is still resistance.

What is it that makes pain?

What is it that takes away the state of peace?

There is a considerable aspect of relative peace that occurs to me: the peace that takes place when some satisfaction is given to everyone; the peace that comes when all are satisfied, as if the satisfaction each one might feel weren't conditional upon each one's truth. And when everyone is satisfied within their own truth, the one who fulfilled the demands of each one's truth sees the environment is serene, joyful – out of satisfaction – and feels peace. It seems it’s that peace that is granted when you are able to make everything go well, when the events are always in accordance with what is expected by each one. And from this satisfaction comes peace. But this is not Peace. And it is so difficult to find the other Peace!

Because it seems that this satisfaction achieved in others is what gives us peace. It is like a kind of windbreaker, something that holds back the avalanche of dissatisfactions there are against you, against anyone, when the intention is to promote peace. And you only realize there is an avalanche when you can't maintain this peace, because of dissatisfaction – conflict, doubt… As if the dissatisfaction weren't just, as if the conflict weren't just.

(…) Those who are able to penetrate the impenetrable that exists, may remain in a state of Peace, especially if they have the courage to face the avalanche, the windstorm; especially if they have the courage to assume the dissatisfaction of those around them, to assume it as the fruit of Justice.
