What exactly is peace? For me, peace means different things. It can be part and parcel of one’s vocation, but at the same time a state of mind that can motivate one’s vocation. Let me explain.
I was once in Berlin, attending the Berlinale Film Festival, and was sitting outside of a small café in Potsdamer Platz called ‘Alex.’ While I sat there, an overwhelming peace overcame me. I watched hundreds if not thousands of persons pass in front of me (it was a busy weekend). Having finished my meal, I was still sipping a glass of white wine. I was entranced by an overwhelming peace that transcended the simple pleasure of the meal and drink.
