February 22--Being Peace

If there is to be any peace it will come through being, not having.  --Henry Miller

    Peace is within us. It is our natural state of being if we do not let the dramas of life overrun us. It is the challenging moment-to-moment practice of staying focused on peace rather than the events swirling around us. 
    Having stuff, and getting more stuff, does not bring peace. The more stuff we have, the more there is to take care of, protect, clean, store, repair, on and on. We may think more stuff will bring us peace and contentment, but we soon learn that is not the case.
    Cultivating peace within each one of us is the best way to create peace on Earth--it's a win-win individually and collectively.
