Peace Overflowing

My first deep breath is peace for myself.

My second deep breath is peace for everyone I know.

My third deep breath is peace for everyone I don’t even know, all over the world.


We each feel the peace within.

It grows and grows until it fills up the space all around us.

It inspires, and then provides new relationships, new ways of doing things.

Just as our old attitudes of despair and pain are replaced by peace within, it overflows out and beyond us into peaceful neighbors, communities, governments.

As I keep doing my part, and feel and cultivate the peace within, I am unifying and drawing others to me of like practice.

This occurs over and over gain, reforming our communities, our governments, and our world.

Being Safe

How do I know I am safe?

How do I know everyone I know is safe?

How do I know everyone I don’t even know all over the world is safe?


It sure looks like we are not safe.

It sure looks like everything in the world can disrupt our lives - laws, wars, jobs, food supply, politics.

Finding peace within for a moment, each time we do it, takes away some of the the weight and persistence of these world events which are triggered by our current world view.

I find that when I start out my world view from within, with a moment of peace right where I am, and each time it comes up during the day, I can find what I need, be where I need to be, and make connections with others.

Sometimes, it feels like I am walking or driving a little thin line through the rest of my surroundings.

But, I can take my peace with me, and therefore my safety.

I can reestablish it as I need to.

This is where my safety is, when I reaffirm and feel the peace within.
