The Value of Peace

Posted on

We have heard a lot of criticism of  those who value “peace at any price.”  We’re told those folks are pushovers,  they never stand up for themselves, etc. etc.   Sometimes their silence, refusal to buy-in is just another form of warfare but often it’s a form of protection.

For some, peace is not on their agenda.  There are those who because of their own loneliness and despair seek disruption through mean-spirited comments or unfortunate jabs or just plain cruelty.  Words of anger, actions of anger, envy dominate the course of their existence.  They are the “reality TV” stars of their own personal and ongoing drama and unfortunately, they seek to take others hostage.

Peace is valuable to our spiritual sanity.  Seek it every day.  Say no to systems and people who try to make you part of their petty dramas.   Recently, I saw an episode of the original “Star Trek” where a race, known as “The Organians,” seem to take abuse from the Klingons who have “conquered” their planet and appear unconcerned when the Klingons start taking their citizens hostage.  All this, much to the dismay of Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise who arrived on the planet to help.   Eventually, the Organian leaders, using mind control,  quietly overpower the Klingons and the Federation ships that are about to go to war.  Then they tell both factions, “that’s enough we’re tired of you” as the Organians visibly change from “humanoids” to spirits of light.
