In all of my years of studying symbols and myths, I came across this symbol, which is actually the peace symbol, based on the tree of life. How much do symbols impact us? Well when you consider that the 'peace' symbol that has been circulating for years actually means death, it kind of resonated with me. Everyone remembers the Vietnam war protests and just about any war protest that you think about usually results in some form of violence. The question of the day, that stumps my logic: How do we equate peace with war?
So how do we stop this hate and fear treadmill we are on? Take a look around you. You start with you. Perhaps you need to go into a hall of mirrors and look at yourself. Do you love yourself enough to start with being at peace with who you are? Do you really need to control or dominate the people around you? I thought we were human and doesn't that mean we can reason with each other? Or are we animals still? It is amazing what we can create.
Peace is not an expletive, it is a state of being.
