Being Peace

I continue to read Yogananda quotes on peace - and it seems this theme, virtue, or quality keeps coming up for me, everywhere I go, and in everything I read.

Last night I received the latest newsletter from the Chopra Center, and it too - focused on peace. In fact, the suggestion was made that if everyone forwarded the newsletter to at least five people, in literally no time at all, millions will have been touched by a piece of peace. I will include the link to the newsletter so that you may read it in its entirely and pass it on.

The newsletter contained this quote from Lao Tzu:

"If there is to be Peace in the world,
There must be Peace in the nations.

If there is to be Peace in the nations,
There must be Peace in the cities.

If there is is to be Peace in the cities,
There must be Peace between neighbors.

If there is to be Peace between neighbors,
There must be Peace in the home.

If there is to be Peace in the home,
There must be Peace in the Heart."

And as the newsletter notes:

"If there is to be peace in your home, there must be peace in your heart. We transform the world most effectively by transforming ourselves...It is not a difficult task - simply one that requires willingness, awareness, and surrender to an ideal that is easily attainable, one heart a time."
