Question: How Can I Be Peaceful

Answer: Be peaceful. Serenity is the answer to peace, both inner and outward peace. Being peaceful does not mean you are a passive milk-toast and that you allow others to walk all over you.

To the contrary, when you are peaceful you tap into a strength of peace that is inviolable.  You will not be dishonored. You will not be humiliated. You will not be weakened when you are peaceful.

“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”        ~ Robert F. Kennedy South Africa, 1966

 

Have courage, be peaceful but firm of conviction and honor. Your mantra: Let  there be peace on earth, let it begin with me.

Be an instrument of peace.

Be a vessel of calm on the stormy sea of life.

Be peaceful, get peace.

There are several themes that I fitted into this notion.

Taking care of myself

How often have I found myself ill-prepared or lacking the energy to take up an opportunity that comes my way? More often than I care to admit. It is critical to care for oneself both mentally and physically by building their strength and endurance. Invest some time into building these up. And I need to avoid spreading myself too thin.

Being intentional

Unify:

“Observe the invincible tendency of the mind to unify. It is a law of our constitution that we should not contemplate things apart without the effort to arrange them in order with known facts and ascribe them to the same law.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1836)
