How to find peace and happiness?

Question from the Internet:

“Will we ever find happiness and peace with the world?”

WE can find happiness and peace with the world, in the world — but only mutually together.

“True Peace” means a perfect, mutual integration, mutual complementation of extremely diverse, seemingly incompatible parts, elements through common goals and common purpose. “True Happiness” is the most optimal balance, homeostasis these diverse elements feel, experience when they create “true peace” between them.

Nature’s system is by default “at peace” and in a “happy balance”, not from our own, misguided, subjective point of view when we look at isolated actions, isolated parts of Nature we are interested in, but Nature is at peace and in perfect balance from systemic point of view, when one becomes able to view, sense the whole system in its totality.

It is the same regarding our own biological body. On cellular or organic level — if we could sense, observe it — there is constant “war”, destruction and rebuilding, fight for survival incessantly at any given moment. Still, in a good case, we feel ourselves at peace, fulfilled and healthy through our “systemic consciousness” above all the internal conflicts and endless processes going on in our bodies.

In order to come to sense ourselves at peace and feel happiness around us, we also have to adopt the same, mutually complementing, mutually purposeful existence through human interconnections and cooperation that we can observe in Nature. And then we can also generate and come to feel a higher, systemic, collective consciousness.

Only on that level can we feel and enjoy true peace and happiness, in that mutual area we create with our methodically and purposefully built mutual integration, where we sense our existence through our interconnections instead of sensing ourselves locked into our inherently subjective and egocentric “cells”, cocoons where life seems an endless ruthless competition and war against a hostile world around us.
