The Real Meaning Of Peace Author Unknown There once was a king who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The king looked at all the pictures. But there were only two he really liked, and he had to choose between them. One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for peaceful towering mountains all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace. The other picture had mountains, too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky, from which rain fell and in which lightning played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall. This did not look peaceful at all. But when the king looked closely, he saw behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest - in perfect peace. Which picture do you think won the prize? The king chose the second picture. Do you know why? "Because," explained the king, "peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. That is the real meaning of peace."

very true and thanks for sharing that beautiful meaning with us , it is similar to prophet ibrahim when he was thrown in the fire by his own people , it is said that the angel gabriel came to him while he was in the air going to the fire , the angel asked him . O ibrahim , do you need any help ! Ibrahim said : from you i don't need nothing , but from God yes i do .... Then God said to the fire be cold and peace to ibrahim ,, when ibrahim was asked which was your best days in this earth , he said it was the days when he was inside the fire ... beacause they were the most peaceful days :) a true believer is always in state of peace and he is a source of peace because his heart is always with Allah ( Al salam ) which means The Peace ... salam peace
