Let's shred the very notion that "peaceful" = "boring."
And then let's positively INCINERATE(!) the idea that being peace-minded sets you up to become a doormat on the stomping ground of humanity.
I don't buy it.
Inner peace is spacious and resplendent. Your peaceful center is a vortex of possibility: a wild expanding state of RECEPTIVITY to greater truth, creative confidence and conflict-intolerant joie de vivre with a clear view of complex, substantive reality.
Peaceful is the leading role, the masterful presence, the laboratory of satisfaction and sanctum of come hither life! Go there often and thrive in the vibrancy.
It never wanes.
