Many people know that the Hebrew word shalom to means peace. Many people think of the word peace as being a passive word. When you break down the word shalom into its paleo hebrew letters you will find out that this is a very aggressive word.
Shalom is spelled from right to left: Shin-Lamed-Wa-Mem. Each letter has a meaning.
shin can mean destroy
Lamed represents authority
Wa represents a tent peg meaning to secure
Mem represents water and sometimes means chaos as with a flood
When you put these letters together you get the messege Destroy the authority attached to chaos. When you do that you are left with peace.
