reflecting peace…

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty:
to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves,
more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others.
And the more peace there is in us,
the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.

This day

“…Show to me this day
amidst life’s dark streaks of wrong and suffering
the light that endures in every person.
Dispel the confusions that cling close to my soul
that I may see with eyes washed by your grace…
…that I may be well in my own soul
and part of the world’s healing
this day
that I may be well in my own soul
and part of the world’s healing
this day. (Wednesday Prayers from Celtic Benediction)

We close another day. May we sleep when we are covered by the blanket of stars and awaken to the rising sun, renewed and ready to meet the day. Tomorrow begins with deep concern and reaching for hope. Wherever we are- imagine how we are connected- in safety, in spirit. May we see one another and be part of the healing.

To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.

Believe… we are connected

as the noise around us grows – the noise of technology, the noise of emotion and distrust – where do we go to find true moments of connection?

let your imagination go… anything is possible. (thank you, David Kanigan)
