The illusions of control

Peace requires us to surrender our illusions of control.

We can love and care for others but we cannot possess our children, lovers, family, or friends.
We can assist them, pray for them, and wish them well, yet in the end their happiness and suffering depend on their thoughts and actions, not on our wishes.
