Peace. How can it be promoted?

Being a “peaceful presence” is a good way to spread peace. Gaining mastery over instincts that are reaching beyond there intended purpose is one sound approach. Today I’d like to consider the possibility of overcoming pride, anger, greed, gluttony, lust, envy, and sloth? In some measure these are all natural human tendencies but, taken too far, they become destructive. Self control and self-mastery lead to peace. I welcome your thoughts.

I’d love to hear your thoughts about self-mastery and promoting peace.
