“Be peace. Don’t just talk about it.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Take a moment to consider if you are you getting annoyed and frustrated about the lack of peace in the world.
And then come back to these simple and powerful words from Which That Hanh

Peace begins with our selves.

Make peace with yourself by giving yourself permission to rest.
Be compassionate towards your own human imperfections and judgments.
Forgive yourself. This is an act of peace.
Find your Middle Ground and connect to the inner goodness within you.

Help an other person to find peace. Encourage them to rest.
Show kindness towards them. Forgive them.
Nurture peace in your children and loved ones.
Work for peace.

Become gentle.
Be tender.
Be peace.

    • Thank you Deb. This time of year is powerful in opening new realizations as we prepare to reflect and go deeper. Merry Christmas to you. So much love and hope around right now. Embrace it into your very being. And let it rest there as we move into the new year.💕

  4. Wise words, Val.
    In this age of conflict around the world it is easy to be judgemental (but even easier to be forgiving and non-judgemental if we try).
