Peace must be fought for. However, the fight is not against some external foe, but it is against ourselves.
To achieve peace, we must fight against the urge to point out other’s flaws, to state our own superiority and righteousness. To achieve peace we must fight against the attachment we have to ego and the concept that there is an “us” and “them.” To achieve peace we must fight to let go and let it go.
Peace is about being honest, and honesty isn’t just telling the truth (as you see it.) Honesty is a way of life, a way of living without limits placed against ourselves and others. Honesty entails expecting nothing and getting everything in return.
We are all human and we are all a part of the Greater Divine. Accepting that and fighting against our own imposed restrictions is the way to attain peace.
