Peace begins with me

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

Whatever may be occurring—near to me or across the globe—I maintain an awareness of peace. The peace of God can be known and recognized in all situations and is brought into expression as serenity, trust, goodwill, and friendship. Through prayer, I strengthen my practice of peace. I think peace, speak peace, and act in ways that foster peace. I am a peacemaker.

Maybe you're like me... I do keep my head in the sand by not watching the news. Being sensitive, I become too overwhelmed with the bad news. While I'm somewhat aware of the world situation, I maintain a prayerful thought, constantly, affirming peace. Through deep, slow, conscious breathing, I affirm God's Peace, first within myself, then flowing out to my family, friends, community, and planet.  I can't change the world, but I can create peace within me. As the Unity song says:
'Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.'
Namaste my friends.
