Peace is a very feel good concept. We want peace in the world, peace in our home. We want a sense of security. For there to be real peace, it has to come from within. #peace #life #health http://nathandriskell.com
"If we want there to be peace in the world, we have to be brave enough to soften what is rigid in our hearts, to find the soft spot and stay with it. We have to have that kind of courage and take that kind of responsibility. That's the true practice of peace." ~ Pema Chodron, Practicing Peace in Times of War (from the Charter for Compassion, on Facebook)
It feels great to be part of something that is bound to improve our society. Little by little, as the children of rational and reasonable thinkers grow up with their minds intact, the change will come about. The best thing to be done now is raise our children right, and continue to speak out against the religions of the world, shining a light on what has for so long been protected by the darkness of "respecting other's beliefs."
