A thought for Peace!

The truth they say will set you free. this is very true from my experience, the only trouble sometimes is the journey you have to take to arrive at the truth. The judiciary I think describes truth as relative.


Our perception of truth varies depending on the context of which truth, whose and what so I get a headache trying to reconcile the truth will set you free without contextualising it. In short, this statement can sometimes be difficult to swallow.


As for me, it seems like I am sitting in a calm before the storm and my one true perception of truth right now is to match this external calm with an inner calm, anticipate and give a thought for peace.


The world at different times, has experienced peacemakers, some at just the right time for the peace they made and others not. Our world right now, needs the peacemakers more than ever with the upheavals in the arab world, war in Afghanistan and also certain parts of africa. People should be more focused on helping to further peace and support those who are out to achieve this purpose.


"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God" is from the christian bible. To be born, to live and to die in peace is the inheritance that God's children attempt to preserve and protect as they go about their daily lives. 


It takes a huge amount of strength, to place ones own prejudices and emotional baggage to one side during already tense and explosive situations, step forward and calmly administer peace. To incite and worsen such situations is easy. This is why peacemakers are always the true heroes and also God's children.


It takes more courage and strength to walk away from a fight. The easiest thing to do when provoked is to lash out and fight. When provoked during an already tense situation, the impulse to pulverise, go to war and maybe even kill is sometimes overwhelming. It is only a special breed, as the children of God, that resist this base impulse.


It is good to at least once a day, think of those caught up in upheavals and wars all over the planet and support those, who do not have the relative peace the rest of us take for granted.


Until next time,


Adieu
