Peace Prevails

 

If you want peace, stop fighting. If you want peace of mind, stop fighting with your thoughts.” -Peter McWilliams

Peace world wide starts from inside. We are so accustomed to considering peace an absence of war between countries, when in truth, some of the most deadly battles occur within us. Often we are war with ourselves, our inclinations and desires. We arm ourselves against the people we most love and fight what is in our highest good. So in this moment, I invite you, as one of my bumper stickers reads to “Begin Within”

When you look within your heart and mind, are your thoughts tumultuous or calm? Are you at war with yourself? Are you willing to create a truce with the man or woman in the mirror?

 

Many years ago, I came across an organization called The World Peace Prayer Society www.worldpeace.org  that has as its mission to share the message MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH. They encourage people to ‘say it, write it, experience it’. “To spread the Universal Peace Message and Prayer, May Peace Prevail On Earth, far and wide to embrace the lands and people of this Earth.”

 

A tangible method they offer to further communicat this message is a peace pole, a four sided structure that proudly proclaims the message in many languages including animal paw prints, since peace includes co-existence with four leggeds, winged and finned beings.They estimate that over 200,000 of them have been dedicated world wide.  I have one in my garden that anyone who passes by my home can clearly see, indicating that I take a stand for peace. I have seen them emplanted at faith communities, parks and private homes. Imagine if the seeds of peace could be scattered world wide. What harvest could we grow?

 

Imagine a world where peace prevails. www.myspace.com/luminariesmusic Check out the amazing Luminaries who offer their musical gifts to the world. Betcha’ can’t help but dance and sing along with them.

 

One of my favorite peace anthems was written by my friends Deb Chamberlin and Robert Wynn, husband and wife musicians and producers.  Called “The Time Has Come”, I consider it as powerful as the world renowned “We Are The World”  www.myspace.com/debchamberlin   www.debchamberlin.com  

 

Armed with love, peace is inevitable.

Where I Am
  How often do you ask yourself  'what if and if only'  questions?  "What if I had chosen a different path, partner, career, home?  Bet I'd be happier if I had," is the frequent litany for many. We get fidgety staying still. We kvetch about how things aren't the way we want them to be, a

On Wings
  Four years ago, at this moment, an event was in the process of taking place that would change my life as I knew it. My mother was in the 'birth canal' on her way to her new life. A few months earlier while she was on hospice, we would have the most extraordinary conversations about what t

Most Sundays find me at Circle of Miracles, which is an interfaith spiritual community created 19 years ago by Rev. Hannelore Goodwin.

One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are.

  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was
