Finding peace in any context

Context can refer to any set of events, past and present (and potentially future), that the knower deems relevant to the entity being studied.

When I was younger and more naive, I thought that I could search for silver bullets or universal solutions I can use or apply in any instance. I realize now that such pursuit is futile; silver bullets do not really exist, and it is the ability of the person to recognize relevant events and entities as context that allow a person to discern towards a responsible decision and action.

There is a kind of a sobering peace that can be borne out of that authentic reflection. I again invoke the prayer for serenity, courage, and wisdom: accepting the things that we are not unable to change alone, changing the things that we reasonably can, and a continuous predisposition to iterate, to try and fail, so that one may truly grow.

In a sense, peace is about knowing fully well how both powerless and powerful we can be. And with faith, the Holy Spirit can ablaze us to be the best version of ourselves.
