Today is the International Day of Peace, a day designated by the United Nations General Assembly as one dedicated to “strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.” I’m joining in with people from around the world to share a moment of peace with you. May you find your way to peace–at least for a few moments–today. The more I take a step away from the hectic pace of life to meditate, the more I see how that peace from meditation stays with me in all my activities. Whatever meditation means for you, go there. Maybe that means taking a walk, looking at the brilliant colors of autumn, listening to the wind or gazing at the clouds. Or perhaps it means sitting meditation. Or maybe you get into that quiet space when running or doing yoga. It’s all good. That’s the start of finding your own way to peace. The impact on your life is immense, but the impact on the world is unlimited!
