It is September 11th. For each of us this date will always ring with pain, and so today, feels like a day to pause and remember how quickly life can change, and how important it is that we appreciate those around us and cultivate quality and care in each moment of our day.
September 21 is the International Day of Peace. There are groups, whom starting today until the 21st, are planning to pray, chant, or pause for peace. The world is too small and connected to waste energy and resources on war. No nation or people can afford injuries, physical, mental, and spiritual. May we each, in our own way, find ways to bring peace to our days, and in that, to the earth and sky.
As Gandhi said, "Be the change you want to see in the world."
