” Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.”
the absence of difficulties
the handling of difficulties
loss of balance
Shalom is not the absence of tension
but the acceptance of it as part of the Way.
Shalom is not the absence of war
but the careful waging of war
without losing one’s balance.
Shalom, is not passive non-violence,
but active confrontation with truth.
Shalom is the ability to see the grain of life
and act in accord with it;
to discover that effortless effort,
action in tune with the Way of Universe,
is the secret of both peace and power.
“War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.”
—John F. Kennedy
Action in tune with the Universe… May the way be filled with love and peace..

What people get while they fight with one another? …Never I’ve understood that…
Let love and peace be there…Amen.. 🙂
War gives us nothing but more hatred. It is peace that soothes and comforts our souls. Love, kindness, compassion, and gentleness is the answer to hate. Love conquers hate. Hugs, Barbara
