Today I am open to any opportunity I have to pass peace on to others.
Start the new year with these inspiring reflections on peace within and in our world.
By Ruth Fishel
It is wonderful to know that wherever I am, the opportunity to make a difference is always there. Whether it is giving a smile to someone, praying for a sick friend, meditating for world peace, or making a donation to a local charity, I am always in a position to encourage peace. By extending peace, I feel peace. By feeling peace, I extend peace. I can always make a difference in how I feel by breathing in peace. It feels so good to know that peace is as close as my next breath.
