The way of peace is to know that every soul on the planet is connected
When one is abused
We all have pain
When one is torn
We all are fractured
When one is exiled
We all lose our home
The way of peace is to believe that we all matter…
No one is higher than another
When one is oppressed
We all are held down
When one is excluded
We all stand alone
When on is dominated
We all lose our power
For the way of peace is not to turn a blind eye to the pain and suffering
of souls who are in the middle of war
The way of peace is to stand together…
to know we are stronger when we join forces…
to rise together in love and light
to drown out the darkness
For when one tries to rule the world
We are all in danger.
Eleven days into this invasion of Ukraine, my heart goes out to the dear people who have been misplaced from their homes and worse, killed by bombs of war.
I see videos of people trying to flee to save their lives and it makes my heart cry. I don’t know what will become of them. I don’t know how they will be able to go on and start a new life in a new land. But I pray for each and every soul to know love and to be able to believe in hope.
War is not new. The pain and suffering of its innocent people are also not new. I don’t know what it would take for all humans to finally understand that the wars we wage in the name of progress only keep us locked in the past.
What would it take for us to remember our connection, to forget the separation…to remember love?
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. ~Mother Teresa
I send you all wishes of love, light, and peace in your world. Maybe we can add so much light that we negate the darkness…
