This is from Thich Nhat Hanh's book Being Peace ... a gentle and hopeful suggestion for us all. After all, if we can bring a bit of peacefulness into our own life ... no matter how small our efforts may seem ... there is that much more peace that exists in our world that wasn't there before.
If we are peaceful,
if we are happy,
we can smile and blossom like a flower,
and everyone in our family, our entire society,
will benefit from our peace.
I hope you let your inner flower bloom today -- I'm feeling a bit sunflower-y myself. Wishing you peace today!
