In order to create peace, I start with my own life.
In order to create peace, everyone I know starts with their own life.
In order to create peace, everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, starts with their own life.
To start, I take a deep breath.
I will move with calm today.
I will not be rushed.
I will find the peaceful things around me to appreciate, how beautiful the clouds are, a lovely drive in the country, now nice for someone to hold the door for me.
I will let my appreciation and my peace expand.
I will be patient with myself and with others.
I will listen attentively in conversation.
I will be grateful for good work, for politeness, for sincerity.
I will look at the world with imagination.
I will expect solutions to appear for all of us.
And I will imagine that everyone is creating more peace in their life, too.
