Is the circle in your life of family, friends and loved ones growing or becoming smaller?
"Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents,it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children."
Ancient Indian Proverb, Tribe Unknown
When times become overwhelming, this is the time to slow down and really take a deep look at ourselves. We created this world we live in with our individual actions or inaction. All of us are a work in progress.
The Ancient Indian Proverb above is an ancient Truth. A Truth that each of us has ignored to a certain degree in our personal lives. (Legends of America, 2011)
At this moment and time, each of us to truly begin by examining the self.
We have created the world we live in. We are responsible for the crime, corruption, environmental damage, pollution, poverty and war. “It is easier to lead men to combat, stirring up their passion, than to restrain them and direct them toward the patient labors of peace.”
- Andre Gide –(Blues For Peace Corporation, 2009)
Peace is a slow, difficult and sometimes painful process of Life. It is what we all cherish no matter race, creed, color, religion, nationality, ethnicity; we are all human seeking Love, Peace and Harmony. However, so many of us are too afraid to walk the path of Peace, Love and Harmony. Our fear is stronger than our faith.
“Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.”
Maria Montessori (United States Insitute of Peace, 2011)
Where to begin? What is the step to take toward faith? My recommendation is to ask yourself-
• Is the circle in your life of family, friends and loved ones growing or becoming smaller?
In the midst of all the changes happening personally, professionally, and socially it is a very important question each of us must answer.
Peace and Blessings.
