Choose peace

The peace you experience comes from who and what you are, and how you choose to be. The world around you can be full of turmoil and strife, and yet you can be completely at peace in your own heart.

Peace is one of the surest signs of strength. Inner peace brings true outer strength.

Those who lack confidence feel the need to lash out. Those who are strong have what it takes to stay calm and peaceful.

When your identity and fulfillment are tied to fleeting, superficial things, it is impossible to remain at peace. When you invest your being in true and lasting values, and when you remain ever vigilant to those values, you develop the confidence and strength to be peaceful.

Peace cannot be forced on anyone, and true peace cannot be forcibly taken from anyone. Peace comes to those who are strong enough and wise enough to choose it, and with that peace comes an abundance of living that is otherwise impossible to know.

Choose peace. And with the strength of your choice, help it to grow.

— Ralph Marston
