When hearts are at peace
Violence and evil cease.
Are made to radiate
Love and peace,
Not to shut down
That block the way
When peace calls.
In your own heart
Is a lost art.
Today many people
Are falling apart.
Modern media distracts people with noise and entertainment, but it rarely creates inner peace. However, you can learn to make inner peace and calm the storm within you.
When hearts aren’t peaceful, neither will society be. The first place to make peace is in your own heart. If you don’t train yourself to make and maintain peace in your own heart, you won’t be a very good peacemaker for anyone else.
When peace flees from my heart, I need peacemakers who will listen, comfort, and pray with me. Kind words are peace talk. Angry words make the heart hostile.
I look for peacemakers who make my heart calm and serene. I try to avoid people & things that disturb my inner peaceful scene. Every time I find a peacemaker who listens to me with kindness and encourages me with hope, I’m grateful for the peace I feel because spending time with such a peacemaker makes my heart peaceful.
Any society that feasts on endless hype, anxiety, and anger won’t be peaceful. True peacemaking is heart-connection, not just mental negotiation.
Peacemakers don’t just make peace between people. They touch the heart and make peace within people. Anxious or angry people can’t spread peace. Only calm, peaceful people can do that.
