Peace is not dependant on external conditions. Release any need to control external situations or people. The only thing we can truly control in our life is ourselves. Trying to control others or situations is incongruent with peace, often leading to struggle and pain.
Life is filled with choices. We always have a choice in how we want to respond. Choose peace and peace becomes you, your way of living and being. Hence “I am peace.” “Peace resides within me.” This will be your reality!
