Last night I went to a talk sponsored by the Brahma Kumaris over in St. Catharine's College. Entitled, "Finding the Missing Peace" and given my the BK's representative to the United Nations in New York Sri Gayatri Natraine, it was an interesting exploration of where peace comes from, haw to cultivate it, and problems with our perception of what it means to be peaceful. Interestingly, Sri Natraine mentioned that some people she's talked to think peace con only exist because of an absence of war. It's frightening that those in power can think this way and says more about the current state of society than about the nature of peace.

The evening was topped off by a half-hour's meditation, where I almost fell asleep but felt very relaxed for the wet cycle home.
