“What do I mean by that? Whenever you wish to attend a retreat, you are asked to disconnect all your digital devices. This is a necessity for you to avoid all such distractions in order to turn within. As well, a quiet surrounding will facilitate such a process.
“You witness daily all types of warfare and antagonisms. You crave for a state of inner peace that can help you heal from such chaotic situations. Indeed, peace is needed to help you regenerate yourself—away from the noisiness and cacophonies of inharmonious personal or social interactions.
“War cannot bring peace on earth, as peace and war are at the antipodes of one another. Yet, as the saying goes: “If you want peace, prepare for war.” Have you ever considered that it has something to do with your inner readiness to deal in a peaceful manner with events that could cause you to ‘lose your cool’—to lose your poise, to lose your inner equilibrium?

“Indeed, “Peace is the cure of distrust and suspicion.” It starts within, leading you to constructively address any conflicts that you encounter. Pray for peace. It is the most fundamental human need to be met for you to thrive and the Father takes all your needs very seriously.”
