'peace, man.'

in response to reader comment: Peace is the word since Adam

"...this is God's command that every person should greet the other by the word PEACE..."

I'm sorry, ...

Saying 'peace' can become as banal as 'have a nice day''.

Peace is a word that describes a state of mind. When the mind is still - we experience peace. No amount of wishing or greeting can confer peace on another individual. We all have to find that space within themselves. And when you're feeling peace - no verbal greeting is necessary - and any is accepted - because it's the vibe in the heart that people sense - not what is uttered.
