Dear Ones,

Today’s topic is An End to War …

SHALL WE MAKE WAR ON WAR?
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
2011

Shall we make war on war?
Or shall we apply the unguent of peace?
A peaceful thought, a peaceful prayer,
A peaceful life …
These simple acts
Like pebbles dropped into a pond,
Spread peaceful ripples everywhere.

LAO-TZU ON AWAKENING HUMANITY

“If you want to awaken all of humanity,
then awaken all of yourself.
If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world,
then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself.
Truly, the greatest gift you have to give
is that of your own transformation.” –Lao-Tzu, public domain (1)

I find it ever so easy to forget Lao-Tzu’s excellent advice to concentrate on my own awakening. Then I segue back into the drama of me versus the world.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
