I believe that we can all contribute to world peace. It starts with being kind to ourselves and finding peace within ourselves. Helping others is a great place to start, but the real work is inside each one of us.
We must find that peaceful, nourishing and inspiring place I call our Middle Ground.
This poem by Chade-Meng Tan (Google’s Jolly Good Fellow and author of Search Inside Yourself) is one of my inspirations.
With deep inner peace
And great compassion, self compassion and fun
Aspire daily to save the world.
But do not strive to achieve it.
Just do whatever comes naturally.
Because when aspiration is strong
And compassion blossoms,
Whatever comes naturally,
Is also the right thing to do.
The wise compassionate being,
Save the world while having fun.
Thank you for joining me in aspiring to save the world while having fun!
