piece together peace

Mahatma Gandhi’s words that have been paraphrased so often as “be the change you wish to see in the world” have inspired so many of us. But there are times when these words overwhelm me with the enormity of what would have to change in me in order for the world to change into the one I wish to see. Being overwhelmed is not the change I wish to see in the world. Being at peace is.

Many of us get stuck on dreaming about the world we wish to see and either get paralyzed by the enormity of the task at hand or simply forget the first part of the directive. We are going to be audacious enough to tweak Gandhi’s words a bit to inspire us to move beyond dreaming and into being…

Be the peace you can be today. How can you be peace today? What is the one thing that you can do differently to bring more peace into the world?

There is no one who can do what each of us came here to do except the one that graces us with a smile when we look into the mirror. We each have a piece of this beautiful planet to heal, transform, and create into something new. The most significant work we can do for the benefit of our planet is the work that we do on ourselves.

Be the piece you can be today. Be the change. Your piece counts! What is the piece you can give today?

Over the next 13 months, a team of peace walkers are walking around the United States to promote peace in a movement called the 13 Moon Walk 4 Peace. They will be walking through 42 cities to heal the heart of America and transform the way we relate to each other and to Mother Earth. This walk is about humanity showing up for humanity.

You can be a part of it…right where you are by creating an intention for being a piece of peace and joining the Piece together Peace project.

Here's how it works...
At the beginning of every month blog about your intention for being peace. Make a commitment to change some aspect of your life that will bring more peace to you and the beings around you. Think of something you can easily change today. There are so many small changes each of us can make to be peace….meditating more often, smiling more often, breathing more often, using kind words, etc…. Then be the change and let the excitement begin.

Feel free to use the button if you are so inspired...

Walk the walk.
Be the piece.
Be peace.
Together... let's Piece together Peace.
