There's a question on the boards, right now, about whether one can love others before they love themselves. A corollary is whether one can spread peace, without being able to feel it themselves.

To me, both love and peace are feelings we achieve when we connect with the Something Greater inside of us, whatever you want to call it {and it has many names.} Nature can be a reminder of that Something, but the Something is present inside of us, too, if we know where to look. We're all a part of that Something, and we owe our continued existence to it. This makes everything about us relative not to other human beings, but to Everything. We're each an indispensible part of that Everything.

That means we're all worthy of love. That means we're all entitled to peace. And they're both waiting inside each of us, whenever we need them.
