Our need for peace is like water is to the desert,
like wind is to the sailboat, like flowing is to the river.
If the river doesn’t flow, it becomes clogged and dirty;
it needs to flow to keep itself clean.
Our need for peace is like the sun is to the moon.
Without the sun, the moon would never shine.
When you look at the beauty of the moon,
remember that it is coming from the sun.
That is how much we need peace in our lives.
