“A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.” -Mahatma Gandhi
You keep the peace. You see all sides. You are a facile communicator and able to adapt to changing and unfamiliar situations and people. People talk to you, even ones who don’t know you. You are a natural confidante. You attract trust and exude an aura of calm authority. You serve with pride the greater tranquility of human discourse.
You know people. Not only do you know them from various circles, you know how they tick. You know what they need to hear and what you need to say to push them into action. You can talk to the dock worker or the ambassador and retain an inner calm that inspires people to be themselves and open up. When you light your attention on someone, they feel like they are the only person in the room.
You can sour if you feel like people are taking advantage or you or pulling you in too many different directions. You can also forget yourself and what you need in trying to serve everyone else. Remember to take stock in your own strengths and connections and to take occasional time-outs to recharge yourself.
Social media mastery, a swarming twitter feed, a warm smile, a firm handshake, seemingly inexhaustible patience, a massage therapist on speed-dial.
I am steadfast and secure on the path of peace. I will serve this greater truth and remember that all ends of peace move to serve the betterment of human beings.
White. A color that reflects light, white is like a beaming canvas on which all manner of possibilities may unfold. A gentle color, free of distortion or influence, white represents the immaculate purity of communication without judgment.
