Illusion of Control

1024 205 Augusta Kantra

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

them well,

yet in the end

their happiness and suffering

depend on their thoughts and actions,

not on our wishes for them.

~Jack Kornfield

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,



Augusta Kantra
