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 good place to start, but the real work is for us to do, is for ourselves.
We must find our Middle Ground and live from the center of our being, rather than reacting to, and being fed by the messages from a disturbed external world.
This poem by Chade-Meng Tan (Formerly Google’s Jolly Good Fellow and founder of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute) is my inspiration:
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.
