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.

First thought…


I wake up in the morning asking myself
what can I do today,
how can I help the world today.


(a network of grateful living)

Morning’s first thoughts. As the sun crests the skyline – do we awaken thinking of ourselves or do we reach beyond, praying for open eyes and softened hearts?

The world calls us to greet each day ready to reach out with compassion for all beings. 

Dream’s beauty

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

May the beauty of our dreams become tomorrow’s world.

A chance…


“Every human interaction offers you the chance
to make things better or to make things worse.”
