I’ve noticed that the mind tends to underestimate the power of harmonious relationships. It seeks to change the world by corralling others into agreement with its own belief system instead.
Such a caring and innocent attempt to make peace for self and others, but it just doesn’t work that way…
Peace begins with acceptance of self through relationships with others, especially those closest to us. Peace extends outward from our foundational relationships into the living world, without effort.
It’s never the other way around, lest anyone be fooled into thinking they can create peace by reaching beyond the lessons that have been placed directly in front of them.
