Give Peace a Chance

Wars happen when intolerance reaches epic proportions. But before a war begins outside, it starts inside. Wars are being fought because peace is not being found within, because we are all searching for something outside. We may call it success, peace, love, or tranquility, it is the same. Have we considered looking for it within?
Peace is already here, and it resides in the heart of every human being.  Peace is something that has to be felt. We are here to be filled with gratitude, love and understanding. We carry a lamp within - so bright that even in the darkest night it can fill our world with light. This light is waiting to be found, peace is waiting to be found. Waiting to once again feel whole, not separated by all the issues that divide our lives. Peace is when the heart is no longer in duality, when the struggle within has been resolved. When peace comes to the heart, serenity follows. Love comes flooding in - uncontrolled. Joy cannot be held back. It bursts through because it is right. That is peace!
Peace needs to be felt, love needs to be felt, truth needs to be felt. As long as we are alive, the yearning to feel good, to feel joy, will always be there; and as long as it is there, there will be a need for it to be discovered. For many centuries, a voice has been calling out:What you are looking for is within you.Your truth, your peace and your joy is within you. In our hearts, peace is like a seed waiting in the desert to blossom, to grow. When we allow this seed to blossom inside, then peace is possible outside. We have to give peace a chance.
