Peace for all

No eye for an eye, no tooth for a tooth. Violence is not the answer. We should use our voices to be heard not our fist or our guns. Violence just causes more violence.

So remember anger and hatred are not the way. Peace is the way. Go out there and vote and make your opinion count. Raise your voice to…

A good example of this type of thinking is Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., stem cell biologist and author of several science books.  In a recent video on his website he says, “When we change our thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs, we can change our biology. We are the masters of our lives not the victim of our genes.” Good thoughts are certainly beneficial. But do the good thoughts that heal have…
