“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 will be in our troubled world.”
I have been wondering when I think about all those places around the globe where conflict makes life not only stressful but often dangerous, do I pause to reflect on areas of my own lives where I am not yet at peace?
For me honoring who I am can sometimes create a discord within myself and it is supposed to be with others right? No, for me the discord is internal. Today I am at the very beginning stage of living who I am. I have come to know and be peaceful that being who I really am is not forbidden or muted. I m starting each day small sometimes as small as what I really want to eat for dinner, or how I want to spend an afternoon, evening or a weekend :).
I woke up this morning with a feeling of purpose… I was reminded I am walking to the future in the footsteps of my ancestors. I believe my ancient ancestors ways have many things to offer to me today as I am working to make the world a healthier place for all who live here.
I woke up this morning with a feeling of purpose… I have a map and a plan, I know things will work out for me, even when it doesn’t seem that they will. I have learned to appreciate my losses, because they almost always get me to my wins. I work on steering clear from negativity, because I have learned not to let my ego get in the way. I am a beginner at not buying into being a victim, because I am learning how to take charge. I am learning to be in the flow, the groove of life. I take each day as it comes. I am not afraid of being in the unknown, letting this season be what is. I am enjoying living the deep unknown, being at peace with the question… Where am I going with this thing called life? I say I am walking in the footsteps of my ancestors.
