Peaceful

Exclusion

Exclusion


How can we expect peace in the world,
when we have yet to find peace within?

This image made me think of inclusion and exclusion. Some circles are inside the border and some are outside the border. My first thoughts when I saw this centered on religion- how it can be both inclusive and so very exclusive.

Those within the border and those outside of the border forever separated.

But, I also began to think of internal peace. I realized that the sense of peace that so many seek is thought to occur through the control and manipulation of others- as if the external world must be in a certain format before one can know peace.

This is completely false. Nothing outside of us will ever give us a sense of peace, if we are incapable of knowing peace within ourselves.

No thing can bring you peace. Peace begins from within.
