Being Peace

Being peace......I use to look for peace, pray for peace. But somewhere down the road, I realized to have peace, I had to be peace. I hear those words every day, looking for peace, needing peace, wanting peace. How can you be peace when you hate your neighbor? How can you be peace when you don't trust anyone who doesn't think like you? How can you be peace when you thrive on chaos and drama?

I once read that you needed to bless your enemies, bless those who hurt you, bless those who would do you harm. That is a difficult place to get to, to bless those who don't love us. It is easy to bless the ones we love, who love us and wish us well. Bless our enemies......see them as a part of all that is human, a part of who we are.

It is easy to get sucked into the daily news, the horrors that seem to pop up over sit in our living rooms and become indignant and angry, to spread our anger to our friends and anyone who will listen, to stew and let out thoughts and anger take over. To be peace, we have to change our energy, our vibrations, our thoughts. To be peace, we become active......we look for ways to help, we bless those who anger us, we search for our path of service, and we breathe.

Being is shelter from the storm, loving the unlovable, understanding you control how you react(it's the only control we have) making it through whatever we face one breath at a time. Being peace......starting to see yourself as peace, to breath before you speak hurtful words,
to hug, to give, to love, to understand now is all we have......those memories, resentment and anger that we cling to, the pity party we throw for ourselves.....time to let all that go......being peace, it's how we get the peace in our hearts, the peace in our lives.


  1. Fantastic post. I would love to see it in a magazine for thousands of people to read.

  2. Jilda,
    You have a good perspective about "now is all we have" and we can choose peace, when we are at peace through the Prince of Peace. :)

    Have a peaceful Monday.

  3. Gosh, what a beautiful and so-well written post today, Jilda. I agree with Belle. It's almost too good to just stay on your Blog. It should be published in a magazine. Your thoughts are just so true about peace. If everyone did what you have said there, the world would be such a better place. We can't really do anything about the big issues that are happening in the world, but we can try to find peace in our own little corner of it and always try to be kind and caring towards other. Excellent and thought provoking post.

  4. Beautiful post today Jilda and so much truth in it. We do have to make an effort to be peace.
