Explore the value of Peace
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
World peace, like community peace, does not require that each man love his neighbor -- it requires only that they live together with mutual tolerance, submitting their disputes to a just and peaceful settlement.
John F. Kennedy
Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt, that peace and abundance may manifest for all.
I want to live long enough see the day the people in this world put aside their differences and work hand in hand to achieve that state of acceptance of themselves and their surroundings, also known as PEACE.
Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That's its balance.
The simple path: silence is prayer, prayer is faith, faith is love, love is service, the fruit of service is peace.
Henry David Thoreau
Do your little bit of good where you are; its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

A Glorious MorningSubmitted by Pam
A Glorious Morning by Pam A gentle breeze ruffled the curtains, bringing with it the fragrant scent of roses. The call of songbirds floated through the air. Lying on the cool, crisp sheets was comforting, but this promised to be a glorious morning. Sliding quietly from the covers and slipping...
A Sacred SpaceSubmitted by Mack Dreyfuss
In the brilliant space of time where the roar of the workweek echoes into silence, I was in the kitchen. I cleared the counters of crusted dishes until they dripped and shone in the rack. The clothes dryer hummed. An occasional car engine whispered by. Earlier that morning, my pregnant wife assisted our three...

It was a tremendously...

Having peace in our own lives should
be integral to achieving our own true happiness. How can we teach others learn what we haven't taught ourselves?
Crystal Bleu, PA
I know these years have been hard and the economy is bad, but if we all work together, I bet the world could be a much better place.
Hey bob, from Germany, I'll pray that you find peace one day too.
I think peace is alot more than a lack of physical violence. Peace is a mindsett. Anxiety worry anger fear (the root of all these emotions) leave no room for peace of mind or peace of body. Peace, such a radical mindsett of the 60's seems to be lost today not only in war but in the everyday lives how we conduct ourselves ... we need peace in our souls. in our walk and talk... its deep <3
