What is it about human beings that we JUST HAVE TO BE RIGHT?
All the time. You know that feeling. It’s that nagging “But, I am right..” feeling during a heated argument that almost always end up in a lose-lose situation. When we can’t forgive and keep trying to justify being right, we are stuck in a rut, an endless maze of suffering.
Stop putting on a shield of rebuttal or brag about “how you won” that squabble. Instead, focus on making PEACE with the experience. This is the best cleanse you can ever give to your soul. No more conflict. No more misunderstandings. Finally, peace…
On this International Day of Peace, find that trail of breadcrumbs leading you out of the jungle of disappointment and hurt and break free into an open space swathed with the quietness and freedom your heart desires.
Serenity comes when you trade expectations for acceptance.
If you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments.
Every day brings a choice: to practice stress or to practice peace.
~ Joan Borysenko
Life is actually really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the world.
Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
If we are to live together in peace, we must come to know each other better.
