Peace in ourselves, peace in the world. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~
We all long for peace. Inner peace leads to external peace. By creating peace in your inner world, in your mind, you bring it into your external world, and into other people’s lives. Accept what cannot be changed. This saves a lot of time, energy and worries. Every day, we face numerous inconveniences, irritations and situations that are beyond our control. Do the best you can, do your part to share and support peace, and maybe one day we will all be living in a peaceful world.
Inner peace means being happy with whom we are, where we have been, and where we are going. Having this type of peace within us, allows us to achieve confidence, control, and happiness. One way of experiencing inner peace is by distancing ourselves from all the negativity we encounter every day. We should never respond to an angry person with a strong comeback, even if they deserve it. Don’t accept their anger.
If we have inner peace and offer it to somebody else, we will see how peace expands from one to another, and gradually to the world at large. If you have peace, I have peace, he has peace, and she has peace, then automatically universal peace will prevail.
