Do you want peace in the world? Who would not want that? Maybe someone who knows what it really mean.
Peace is directly in relation with each of us. We are the source of peace. Don’t hope for someone else to bring it into this world, do it yourself in your everyday life.
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
If you do your best to bring peace into your life, you’ll be adding some power to change the world and bring peace globally. It all start with you.
The first step to bring peace in your life is to be at peace with yourself. Forgive yourself. You can’t change the past. Believe in yourself and do what you think is the best. Be in harmony with your heart in all that you do. If you do good with all your heart, then in the end peace will be the result.
“Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Peace is not merely the absence of war. It is also a state of mind. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.” – Jawaharlal Nehru
Talk is cheap. Don’t talk about peace, do something for it. You don’t have to build something big to have influence on peace in the world. Just do something good with all your heart.
“While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.” – Francis of Assisi
To work for peace doesn’t mean to be a slave to the un-peaceful people.
“Nobody can bring you peace but yourself.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
As long as you stay true to your own heart. Working to bring good in the world will always help peace. Your good doing could be used by someone else to bring hate and pain. Keep doing the good and don’t let the wrong doer bring you into the spiral of hate and anger.
If you let anger and hate take your heart, then you’ll become an actor into the building of violence and war.
“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.” – Henri Nouwen
