divine manner

Peace has never come from dropping bombs. Real peace comes from enlightenment and educating people to behave more in a divine manner.

Carlos Santana

I love this quote. While I believe that there are "things" worth fighting for--I wish it weren't so often necessary the first line of problem solving.

"Divine manner..." wouldn't that be lovely? We could all use more divine manners, methinks.

I have loved Santana's music since I heard the first riff in my youth, but I have never heard this quote. Not only does it inspire, but it helps me understand where the music comes from.

To behave more in a divine manner. Perhaps we must begin to perceive ourselves as beloved of the Divine and imbued with it ourselves, eh?

Ah, but you already know what it is to be beloved of the Divine. I will focus on that myself this week. It is just what I need right now. Thank you.
