Peace, Love, and Power

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.- Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix had it right!

Love is the answer. We all know this truth. So, why can it be so hard to unclench our fists or to hold our tongues?

Call it human nature. Still, if we want peace, we must be committed to being peaceful ourselves. We must make a conscious effort to choose peace when we can. We must look for opportunities to share the power of love with others.

I would be remiss not to share, that for me, Jesus is love, and I try to follow His way of peace. Prayer brings me peace.

How do you stay peaceful?

    • I really enjoyed a yoga class I took in the past. The stress of the day did seem to fade away. When the gym switched teachers though it just wasn’t the same and my attendance faltered. Thanks for sharing!
