Give Yourself the Gift of Peace

Can there be any peace in prejudice?  Any solace in hate for others?  Any gratification in another's pain? 

Why do we hang onto negative feelings?  Why do we find fault with those who do not look like us or think like us or act like us? 

When has hate, intolerance, prejudice, annoyance or anger given you a memory of happiness? 

Give yourself the gift of peace.  It begins with tolerance.  It expands with understanding.  It grows with love. It culminates in inner peace.         by Carol
