War is Created in the Mind

Jesus! Peace! God! Buddha!

As meaningful as these words are to you, their spirit doesn't live inside other's minds.  In fact, it is in the fighting over the words, as to why they are repelled. Bring them to their hearts.  Speak in actions, using verbs instead of nouns.  These are universal messages that go directly to the heart.

If you love Jesus, emulate compassion.  If you want peace, be a giver of blessings.  If you want people to know God as you do, offer love.  If you dig on the Buddha, live mindfully. 

If people "feel" your sincerity, they are much more likely to listen.
