Peaceful power

Your world cannot be at peace until you yourself are at peace. Calm your worries and fears. Let go of your anger and resentment. Look at each difficulty as an opportunity to strengthen your ability to remain peaceful.

When your mind and your spirit are at peace, your thoughts and actions are free to be strong, focused and effective. You cannot force others to be truly peaceful. You cannot shame them into it. Yet by your example you can draw them into the power of your own peacefulness.

Peace will not come to you until there is peace that comes from you. Living in peace does not mean giving in or giving up. Rather, it means having the confidence to let go of your anxieties and insecurities, so you can focus on your positive possibilities.

Decide to live this moment, this day, this life in peace. And though the world around you may swirl with turmoil, you’ll be moving positively forward with others sure to follow.
