When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace. Jimi Hendrix

If you want peace, you don’t talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies. Desmond Tutu

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The more we sweat in peace, the less we bleed in war. Vijaya Lakshmi Pandit

Mankind must remember that peace is not God’s gift to his creatures; peace is our gift to each other. Elie Wiesel

To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him. Buddha

I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war. Albert Einstein

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Wednesday thought

Hello again everyone! This time I was thinking of a word that is inspired by Spring and everything it means to me, in nature, in society (traditions, celebrations) or individually. That is why I would choose the word Light.

Be it the sunlight or a spiritual light, we need it in our lives, especially when we may find ourselves in the dark. It is always on the cloudiest days that we realise how much we need the sunlight. It goes the same with our life. We are all flowers that need light to live, physically and emotionally.

Sometimes we look for it in photos, to catch an amazing angle and photograph the beauty of a place in sunlight. Other times, we find ourselves in a greyish context and we strive to go back to the right path, to the light. Wherever we may be, we should keep the benefit of walking in the light, in strength and force. Or we can just watch how a simple seed that we put in the soil flourishes thanks to light and water – just like a miracle.

Whichever moment you may be in, keep the light with you – on your desk when you write, in the kitchen when you cook, in your heart when you think and plan your life – and your whole life will be an expression of good, ripe crops and happiness. Share also your own Light with those you love and be grateful thus to enjoy a love that will last forever.

May the light and health of this spring guide you on the best path for this whole year!
