Here’s a thought I’d like to share…
Peace requires us to surrender
our illusions of control.
We can love and care for others
but we cannot possess
our children, lovers, family, or friends.
We can assist them, pray for them, and wish
yet in the end
their happiness and suffering
depend on their thoughts and actions,
not on our wishes for them.
This is a truth that is often hard to swallow. Nonetheless, peace is only available to us if we courageously surrender our illusions of control.
Wishing you peace,
