With so many things competing for our attention in this fast-paced world of ours, it’s always good to keep our eye on our core values, which can be different for different people, yet upon close inspection, must be similar in many ways. In spite of strife on the world stage, I’d say the vast majority of individuals on the planet would prefer a peaceful world – one where their families, friends and neighbors enjoy relative tranquility and do not have to live in fear. Sadly, the International Day of Peace, which is September 21, 2012 (tomorrow!) probably gets far less attention than all of the wars around the world do. I’m glad there are people on the planet, including our friend Will Tuttle, author of The World Peace Diet, who help us focus our attention on the subject of peace on earth. Just today I got an email about a group of well-known musicians (Eric Clapton, Guns n Roses, Carol King and others) who are pooling their talent with musicians from other countries to create a Listen for Life world tour to raise consciousness about the importance of creating peace on the planet. So, tomorrow – how can each of us make the day a little more peaceful? Mindful eating? Lending a helping hand to your neighbor or colleague? Staying away from gossip? Or just centering ourselves in our hearts and thinking of all the people in our lives we can send love to. Maybe as our love radiates out into the world, we’ll create a powerful wavelength together. Make peace!
