Day 13 - Peace is action
It isn’t enough talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.
We cannot have peace in the world until we learn to cultivate our own inner peace. Peace extends from wherever it is precent. So when we know peace in our hearts, we naturally extend that peace into the world around us.
It takes action to develop compassion and to create inner peace in ourselves. There are things we can do every day to promote peace.
Look people in the eye and smile when you pass them on the street. Better yet, actually say hello.
Don’t hide from life. Have faith that there is still an abundance of good in the world.
Regard people who hurt your feelings as your personal teacher of how to maintain a peaceful nature.
When you feel slighted, ask yourself if what happened was really about you or if it was about the other person.
When you see someone in trouble, don’t act like you don’t see the person, provide some help.
Peace and happiness isn’t having everything we want, but being deeply moved by the gratitude of being able to experience life.
Every act of love is a work of peace not matter how small.
