Many live with a raging battle between their ears. Their minds warring against feelings and feelings battling against actions. They experience conflict upon conflict and yet sing let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me without feeling or understanding. How is this possible?
The size of the stone thrown into the water determines the size of the ripple. And, so it is with our thoughts. The depth of our battlefields are determined by how magnanimous we want to make our story – our hurts, our disappointments, etc.
When ready, we will leave the battlefield. We will change our thoughts and stories. We will put down the stone. For then, and only then, can we feel the words we sing – NOW there is peace on earth because it has begun with ME.
