Peace, ah this is a little tricky. Peace is my Achilles heel! Simply stated, peace is our souls’ version of a litmus test to a life well lived. It is the vibrant melody of our soul when it sings from our core. It is more of an equation and a harmonious union between heart, mind and soul. For example; respect + love + dignity + integrity + tolerance +honesty + gratitude + mindfulness + truth + happiness + balance, etc. = peace. It appears to be quite a complex recipe and it is! Should one or a few of those things fall by the wayside our equation will not be complete. When we are missing peace we are veraciously trying to find it, searching heaven and earth. Since I am an optimist let’s say it is not that complicated, but does require the proper tools.
Let us not forget peace looks different for every person. The thing that holds true is no matter “what” assists us in creating it, it all leads to the same place, the same “feeling.”
