staying true

“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 :).
