Promise of a new Day

Some day science may have the existence of mankind in its power, and the human race [may] commit suicide by blowing up the world. —Henry Adams—

One hundred years ago Henry Adams foretold a modern predicament, one we all must live with. Science has indeed given us the power to destroy ourselves. How in such a hazardous world, are we to find serenity?
Peace begins within. Each one of us know what conflict is, and so each of us possesses the power of reconciliation. The glory of the human spirit lies in our abilities to choose, to let go of despair, to turn our energies to creative uses. peace begins with resolution of our inner wars.
The whole history of our species on the planet has prepared us for the noble choice of peace; it’s the fulfillment of our humanity. Each of us must listen to the truth within our hearts; there lies the wisdom we need, and there lies our capacity for love and creativity.
When I listen to the peace within my heart, my spirit is soothed.
