“We are not going to deal with the violence in our communities, our homes and our nations, until we learn to deal with the basic ethic of how we resolve our disputes and to place an emphasis on peace in the way we relate to one another.” Marian Wright Edelman
Peace begins within our own mind, body and spirit. We are really all one, and, all connected. We live on one planet, our earth. Although it may appear that the world is out of balance, and in turmoil, there is an incredible influx of light and love being illuminated within us. All you need to do is open your heart to receive it. Now is the time to understand that we can resolve our differences, and unite again as one. Let us all pray for Peace!

I recently watched the classic movie Camelot on TV. I recommend everyone watch this beautiful story. It is full of meaning, love, and adventure. One scene in particular stood out to me. When King Arthur went in to the woods to confide with his childhood mentor Merlin, for advice. King Arthur, was in a situation to prepare for a great battle against his friend Sir Lancelot. It was a battle he didn’t want to fight. Merlin, advised him to think. To think and reflect back in time, and the answer will reveal itself. He also advised him to take a day off of thinking and just love. Merlin said, that is why, God created seven days in the week. To take one day off of thinking, and just love. Love everything, and everyone. Good advice. Sometimes we need to rest our minds from the strain of thinking, and just love. Love is the answer. In today’s world where there are many battles going on and so much violence, we need to take a day off, and love. Let us all open our hearts and love each other, ourselves, the earth, and everything in our world. Love truly will heal all!

How may I serve? How may I be of service to the world? It doesn’t require any heroic action to be of service. You can serve the flowers and trees right in your own garden, or neighborhood. Bless all the people you meet. Give a kind word or thank everyone you come in contact with today. Give of yourself in your work, in your home, in your community and in your world. Being of service is an expression of gratitude for life. So step outside your comfort zone, and be of service.
“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”—Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Only a life lived in service of others is worth living.”—Albert Einstein.
