Spiritual Growth Articles

Peace Begins with You.

    The Art of Peace begins with you ... Foster peace in your own life
and then apply the Art to all you encounter.
--Morihei UeshibaIf

This month, our Feature Articles are looking at the theme of "Peace Begins with You: Creating Peace Within Ourselves and In Our World." As Donna Henes, one of this month's contributors so eloquently writes in her article, Response-Ability, "One by one and all together we must learn and practice the ways of peace, cooperation, compassion, forgiveness and understanding. We must put our spirit into action and, be the peace we seekin our hearts, in our homes, in our relationships and in our communities. In the words of Gandhi, 'You must be the change you wish to see in the world.' Surely, this is the humble but firm foundation for Peace on Earth. We are the world, after all."

May your life be filled with peace, joy and harmony!

"Nothing can bring peace but yourself."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
