Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards Men

by Robert L. Gisel

 Those spiritual words, Peace on Earth and Goodwill Towards Men, oft repeated characterize virtues we could use a lot more of around the globe.

 It takes an abundance of trust and high ability to grant beingness to others, to always embrace the benevolence, generosity and greatness to rise above baser emotions that wear on one and taunt like response.

 When you would seem to be egged into a needless confrontation you would be advised to have no fear, look it in the eye, take a deep breath, count to 10, or whatever works for you to not bite when bitten. Yet in the world there are insane enemies sometimes about that need to be rendered ineffective to harm. These are too often themselves the unrevealed culprits the politicos and their mad dog press try to foist off on us.

 The men of good will are those who pursue life honestly and ethically. They comprise 80% or so of the entire populace. It is these who keep making life tenable and the life force moving forward. The Holiday spirit reaffirms this. The Hope is it will last throughout the year.

 May you embrace the cause of Peace and Goodwill and be of such benevolence that you will yourself reap an abundant and prosperous New Year.
