I've always been a peaceful person. My whole life. I've avoided conflict any time, everywhere, and for whatever reason. I want things around me peaceful all the time.
It's easy to see that this is nothing but a pipe dream. If you want peaceful all around you all the time fly off to one of those remote islands in the Pacific somewhere. Otherwise, it doesn't exist. You can imagine my frustration for most of my life.
Trying to control everything around me so as to have it peaceful, all the while raging turmoil inside my soul. Wrangling everything I could so as for calm to prevail. I wanted it peaceful in my sphere. Calm. Quiet. But I did not know Peace.
Peaceful is an adjective. Peace is a noun. Peaceful describes something, peace you can possess.
Do you possess peace? Peace inside gives you the ability, not to control things, but to remain in control as everything unravels. Do you possess peace when disaster strikes, when struggles come, when peacefulness shatters?
If you don't have Peace, find it.
