Grounding and centering

Almost heart-shaped lichen.

With me I always carry my peace message:  This is the Way of Peace:  Overcome evil with good, falsehood with truth, and hatred with love.  There is nothing new about this message, except the practice of it.  And the practice of it is required not only in the international situation but also in the personal situation.  I believe that the situation in the world is a reflection of our own immaturity.  If we were mature, harmonious people, war would be no problem whatever — it would be impossible…

All of us can work for peace.  We can work right where we are, right within ourselves, because the more peace we have within our own lives, the more we can reflect into the outer situation.  In fact, I believe that the wish to survive will push us into some kind of uneasy world peace which will then need to be supported by a great inner awakening if it is to endure.
