Who 'Makes' Peace?

Who is the one who 'makes' peace? Who is the one who 'works' at it? Peace arises spontaneously, right in the midst of conflict, when this do-er dissolves.

"I have come into the world to see this: the sword drop from men's hands even at the height of their arc of rage, because we have finally realized there is just one flesh we can wound." (Hafiz)

When I see the do-er in your body and the do-er in my body disappear into one dance, I no longer speak of war and peace.
