Chapter 12, Page 20, Book 16

♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ It’s the Most Wonderful Season of All♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ 

As fits the holy Christmas birth,
 Be this, good friends, our carol still 
Be peace on earth, be peace on earth, 
To men of gentle will. 

William M. Thackeray

Peace is the binding force which unifies us together.  Peace is the guard of our hearts and minds . Without peace, we will be subject to heart failure and mind games. Without peace, our relationships begin to unravel and society begins to disintegrate.

We need peace within us but we also need peace with others. Peace for men, women, and children around the world who are living in desperate circumstances. Peace in the hearts and minds of those who are hurting and suffering pain and deep loss. Peace in the midst of an ongoing occupation and in a regions wrought with great conflict and where fear often seems to prevail.

Peace is a world where nothing is broken and nothing is missing.

John Perkins

Peace is rooted in love.  Living in peace with each other is more about holding and keeping a loving relationship with others and not just being content with not fighting.

Ceasing to seek power over people and outcomes in your life is the first major step to living peacefully. 

No matter where we live, what religion we practice or what culture we cultivate, at the heart of everything, we're all humans, with the same ambitions and aspirations to raise our family, and to live life to its fullest. 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him.
Romans 15:13

That is so true, Ma, about ceasing to seek power over people and outcomes in our lives is the first major step to living peacefully. I think once we realize we don't have control of what we might like to have control of, it is easier to let things go and to concentrate on what truly matters, like living peacefully and loving unconditionally.



PEACE on earth. What a concept.

Peace on earth seems so out-of-reach these days. Why, just watching the evening news, I have to wonder what will become of mankind.

In the end, I suppose, I can only direct my own thoughts and actions in a peaceful manner... and pray that others do the same.

Sweet header picture. Yes Peace! Having inner peace allows one to live at peace. Our hearts should go out for those who live in fear. Prayers for those who seem to be destined to live in daily fear because of the terrible unrest. But we cannot give up. We should always seek peace on Earth and Good will to men.

I agree with John Lenon - Give peace a chance.
