When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace. Jimi Hendricks, American Guitarist
Every year on May 16th, the International Day of Living Together in Peace urges people to live in a united and peaceful way by listening to, respecting, and appreciating others.
For those of us who want to bring reconciliation and peace to ourselves and the world, the following tips may be helpful:
- Practice tolerance for others by appreciating their diversity and the choices they make.
- Walk away when you are angry or are trying to win over a conversation.
- Don’t compare yourself to other people.
- Accept other people the way they are instead of trying to change them.
Affirmation: I will love peace more than power
