365 Days, Day 77

Peace is not something you wish for; it’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away (Robert Fulghum)

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without (Buddha)

To everything there is a season, and
a time to every purpose under heaven:

A time to be born, and
a time to die;
a time to plant, and
a time to pluck up
that which is planted;

A time to kill, and
a time to heal;
a time to break down, and
a time to build up;

A time to weep, and
a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and
a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and
a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and
a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and
a time to lose;
a time to keep, and
a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and
a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and
a time to speak;

A time to love, and
a time to hate;
a time of war; and
a time of peace.

(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 Attributed to King Solomon)

I do not have much to say today. I need to find stillness in my heart. I need a time to be silent and time to pray. I need to use the power of my mind.

Ohm shanti shanti shant* – peace peace peace
