What is really the meaning of the word peace?

Sometimes people dont understand why I use the term Warrior of Light since Im engaged in a kind of confrontation with life. I do this because I believe that Nature is also in a state of confrontation: springtime against winter, winter against summer, lions against zebras, etc.

For me peace is an utopia as far as Nature is concerned.

That said we need to strive for peace among ourselves but we also need to keep in mind that absolute peace is an utopia despite the many attempts of peace in the world. Consequently this state of peace may lead to boredom.

In the light of this: Do you really want peace in the world? Have you ever considered that there was never peace in the world and that therefore this goal may simply be unattainable?
