Capacity for Peace

Our capacity for peace is without limit.

Even individually, this is a challenge, but it is a great goal.

Not to become irritated or agitated is a practice we can initiate several times a day.

As we practice peace in our individual lives, it expands into our communities.

All those daily interactions which show we care for each other has a long-range and long-term comforting effect.

We begin to lose some of our fear.

As a practice, the possibilities for extending this are enormous.

Just maintaining it for ourselves is immense.

A workshop which I took began with finding a reference point for peace.

A thought, an image, a word, a breath.

By bringing ourselves to peace as often as we can, we are creating an uplifting atmosphere for ourselves and for others.

The possibilities for building on this practice send thought and action in a completely new and refreshing direction.
