Weekly reflections on spirituality and health
Reflection for week of King Day
Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, December 10, 1964

The mystery of peace is located in the nature and quality of relationships developed with those most feared.
