Every human being desires peace in their heart. There is no one who does not want peace. But did you have models of true peace in your childhood?
How many children have observed for years the adults who silently endured and then dramatically exploded? To achieve only a moment of superficial peace afterwards.
Within the majority of individuals, there is a part that has learned to desire conflict, that needs drama to finally have a voice. Perhaps you may not be able to realize it right now. Maybe you’ll have to wait for a situation that helps that part emerge. An accusation here or there, someone who doesn’t recognize your worth, the invasion of the comfort zone, an argument about money or family…
And the point is: When it happens as you wish, how many times will you walk the path of your parents, your ancestors, past lives, before recognizing that there is no peace for those who tread that path?
If you can feel something within you that is at war, that feels threatened and wants to survive at all costs, that needs drama: Listen to it from now on and be its model. Communicate to yourself more and more clearly that you don’t want to do as others do, that you can face an emotion without having to suppress it, that you have every right not to need drama to clarify the purposes of your life.
Tell the child within you that it’s not worth it, that it’s not worth staying silent for a long time only to scream loudly later, to be right but when there’s nothing but desert around. There is an alternative: Listen to all that warmth in your belly and chest, and breathe together, embrace the fragility, embrace it with an open heart. You will feel different in the end.
Tell the child not to worry: You will be by its side.
You can make a difference.
Make peace, be peace.
