So we regard peace as the be all and end all of the meanings of emotions

So that with either love or fear we can achieve peace by being responsible for the way we feel..

Love at its highest is selfish and self fulfilling..

But hate and fear only exist when there is an other or something else.. because that is something we can't control..

So we see we want control in all situations but we can only control our selves.. which is et proper anyways..

Control is a mechanism of development.. and is used in learning and awareness..

Methamphetamine is very good at understanding control..

While DXM is very good at understanding awareness..The temple of love so to speak..

The attachment of the other is normal.. because we want to whole within and without

Wholeness is a quality of standard holding.. fusion of awareness and wholeness or otherwise selfness.. xxx porn may be good to get off with.. but nothing will ever replace a female in estraus.. es te entem.. or otherwise essence is made from the human.. esse homo.. or the quality of the philosophers stone and the color of holiness which is caucasion..

The question everyone's thinking is....were you high when you wrote this?

There's nothing to be learned from "selfness". It's a path to destruction.

The colour of holiness is subjective but what it may look like is all colours together, that being light.

Peace is allowing emotions to move through......
If an emotion happens then it already is.... fighting that emotion is not peacemaking... it is conflicting.
That which does not want what actually is occuring.... is anti peace!

The mind is seeking for peace....but peace is right here prior to the seeking mind.

Hahahahahahaha
Serious man, get off that whilst u still can.

It's hard to know what you are saying as your confidence is impacted by these drugs not your skill.

But there's no point in telling a crackhead that crack isn't good.

Just know that you're audience is watching a don't do drugs special, we're not in awe of your insight as you assume.

The quiet (peace) contains the mind.

What I'm really trying to say is that peace is natural for human beings..

Peace exists a priori..

So that when we do a thing it either gels with us or goes against the grain..

The question isnt how to attain peace but how to not do the things that are against peace of mind..

Like this is my logic..

Peace exists until you break it..

Peace is...... until things are believed.

Stories arise about you (a supposed thing) in time (a concept) and straight away there is conflict...... you and time don't actually ever appear to exist.

“The peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.”​—Philippians 4:7.

What is this “peace of God”? It is a calmness that comes from having a close relationship with the Creator. This does not mean that we are immune to adversity. “Many are the calamities of the righteous one,” wrote the psalmist. (Psalm 34:19) But the peace of God can bring relief. How?

The peace of God “excels all thought,” wrote Paul​—or as rendered in the Concordant Version, it is “superior to every mental state.” Anxiety can cause us to experience a wide range of distressing emotions. (Ecclesiastes 7:7) Yet, the peace of God can stabilize us, especially when we need “power beyond what is normal.”​—2 Corinthians 4:7; 2 Timothy 1:7.

Furthermore, the peace of God is a protection. It can “guard your hearts and your mental powers,” as Paul wrote to the Philippians. The Greek word translated “guard” is a military term that likely evoked a mental picture of sentries maintaining a day-and-night watch. In the same way, the peace of God can act as a 24-hour guard over our hearts and our mental powers.​—1 Corinthians 10:13; compare Ephesians 4:26.

Considering the stressful challenges we face today, is not the peace of God something for which to be thankful?​—Psalm 18:2; compare Exodus 40:38.

The peace of God is the silent space in which thoughts arise...... prior to any thought is peace.

Thoughts conflict.

Believing in the thoughts about yesterday or tomorrow will hide the peace which is ever present.

In the beginning there was nothing....
No things to conflict...... hence peace.

The mind is thinging... it makes believe there are things..... words and concepts divide the peace.

Jesus came to divide.... Jesus is the word....

... the word is God.

There isn't anything beside God.

But stories speak of separate things in time..... where is time?

What actually is?
Has anything other than what is happening ever been found?

This is God.... ever present..... nothing other.

What can fight anger and rage?

If anger and rage are appearing they already are.

What can disallow what is?

Let it out by screaming then you are less likely to let it out in other forms like aggression or passive aggression to others. Or yourself.
So fight it by being in n control of how and when it is released, suppressing it just builds it up for an uncontrolled explosion

Yes. But the RGB color addition is only one part of the equation. In this material world of prints we use the CMYK setting, which adds up to black after all.

Kinda intriguing, innit?

Peace!

Many individuals today would argue that venting anger is just a natural response to stress, an unavoidable reaction to our high-pressure, aggressive society. Is it true, then, that the popular notion, “When angry, let it out,” is actually good advice?

Should Rage Be Controlled?

Just as an erupting volcano wreaks havoc on those living around it, so too a person who expresses intense anger harms those living around him. He also critically damages himself. In what way? “Acting on anger leads to even more aggression,” states The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). According to research, men who manifest anger “are more likely to be dead by age 50 than those who do not.”

The American Heart Association similarly states: “Men who experience outbursts of anger have twice the risk of stroke as men who control their tempers.” These warnings are relevant to both sexes.

What advice really works? Notice the similarities between the advice of secular authorities and that of the most widely distributed authority on human relations, the Bible.

Manage Anger—Avoid Rage

Dr. Redford B. Williams states in JAMA: “The simplistic advice, ‘when angry, let it out,’ is unlikely . . . to be of much help. Far more important is to learn how to evaluate your anger and then to manage it.” He suggests asking yourself: “(1) Is this situation important to me? (2) Are my thoughts and feelings appropriate to the objective facts? (3) Is this situation modifiable, so that I don’t have to have this anger?”

Proverbs 14:29; 29:11: “He that is slow to anger is abundant in discernment, but one that is impatient is exalting foolishness. All his spirit is what a stupid one lets out, but he that is wise keeps it calm to the last.”

Ephesians 4:26: “Be wrathful, and yet do not sin; let the sun not set with you in a provoked state.”

Frank Donovan, in his book Dealing With Anger—Self-Help Solutions for Men, recommends: “Escaping anger—or, more specifically, escaping the scene and other people in your angry episode—is a strategy which has special importance and value at the higher levels of anger.”

Proverbs 17:14: “The beginning of contention is as one letting out waters; so before the quarrel has burst forth, take your leave.”

Bertram Rothschild, writing in the journal The Humanist, states: “Anger . . . is primarily one’s personal responsibility. The reasons to become angry exist in our heads. . . . The few times anger worked for you pale in comparison to the multitude of times it made things worse. It is far better not to produce the anger than to experience it.”

Psalm 37:8: “Let anger alone and leave rage; do not show yourself heated up only to do evil.” [whereislogic: screaming in anger in public would show yourself heated up; but it's best to let anger alone alltogether, if anger makes you scream, in public or in private, you've already lost your calm, see earlier quotation regarding the advice of keeping it calm until the last]

Proverbs 15:1: “An answer, when mild, turns away rage, but a word causing pain makes anger to come up.”

Proverbs 29:22: “A man given to anger stirs up contention, and anyone disposed to rage has many a transgression.”

Source: What Is Provoking the Age of Rage? Awake!—2002

Those who desire to seek and pursue peace must “turn away from what is bad, and do what is good.” (Ps 34:14) Without righteousness, there can be no peace. (Ps 72:3; 85:10; Isa 32:17) That is why the wicked cannot have peace. (Isa 48:22; 57:21; compare Isa 59:2-8.)

Psalm 85:10

10 Loyal love and faithfulness will meet together;

Righteousness and peace will kiss each other.


Isaiah 32:17

17 The result of true righteousness will be peace,

And the fruitage of true righteousness will be lasting tranquillity and security.


Isaiah 57:21

21 There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.”

Isaiah 59:1-8

Look! The hand of Jehovah is not too short to save,

Nor is his ear too dull* [Lit., “heavy.”] to hear.

2 No, your own errors have separated you from your God.

Your sins have made him hide his face from you,

And he refuses to hear you.

3 For your palms are polluted with blood

And your fingers with error.

Your lips speak lies, and your tongue mutters unrighteousness.

4 No one calls out for righteousness,

And no one goes to court in truthfulness.

They trust in unreality* [Or “emptiness.”] and speak what is worthless.

They conceive trouble and give birth to what is harmful.

5 They hatch the eggs of a poisonous snake,

And they weave the cobweb of a spider.

Anyone who eats their eggs would die,

And the egg that is crushed hatches a viper.

6 Their cobweb will not serve as a garment,

Nor will they cover themselves with what they make.

Their works are harmful,

And deeds of violence are in their hands.

7 Their feet run to do evil,

And they hurry to shed innocent blood.

Their thoughts are harmful thoughts;

Ruin and misery are in their ways.

8 They have not known the way of peace,

And there is no justice in their tracks.

They make their roadways crooked;

No one treading on them will know peace.
