The Gift of Peace

Standard

Peace

Peace allows us to pursue our purpose in life – to discover and explore what drives our creative and intellectual passions.  It is the one gift that we can give ourselves, irrespective of external circumstances.

Peace is the absence of anger:

“For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Peace is the absence of envy:

“Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others.  He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.”

Buddha

Peace is an open heart and a willingness to be a positive influence for good:

“The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart.  The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace.”

Carlos Santana
