How do I nurture peacefulness in my heart?

What do I do to prevent disagreements from escalating into strife?

This month’s query was shared by Gail Becke and comes from The ILYM Faith and Practice.

She shared that she has been thinking about peace lately.

"For much of my adult life, I have taken guidance from Matthew Arnold’s words: Calm soul of all things, make it mine to feel, amid the city’s jar, that there abides a peace of thine I did not make and cannot mar."
