We are at a turning point in America where perhaps it is possible to hold a new vision of peace both individually and collectively.
Tonight in the televised prayer vigil in Newtown, Connecticut, President Obama talked about how we are not doing enough in America to protect our children, and how that needs to change. I thought he gave an important and powerful speech, and I hope he can lead us into a new era of greater peace in communities across our country.
In the meantime, we all have the opportunity to hold on to an expanded vision of peace for ourselves. Yesterday, I saw this Dalai Lama quote and picture in Tad Hargrave’s newsletter and I thought it was beautiful and wanted to share it with all of you.
I know so many of my readers are peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and people the planet desperately needs, wherever you live in the world. Thank you for all the ways you hold a vision of peace in your life. When our collective vision of peace becomes more important than the vision for “success” perhaps we will find ourselves living in an even more enchanting world.
How might you expand your vision of peace?
