Peace is the topic this month.  The process of effecting peace in the world is really a bottom-up procedure not from the top-down.  So each week we will progress upwards to help bring more peace to our fellow man.  This first week is about creating peace in yourself, then we move to create peace in your family, then community, then the country.  While you might think that you can't really make a difference isn't this the greatest thing that you can work on at the present time?

                                           Let peace begin with me, let this be the moment now...                                             Words from a hymn written by Sy Miller and Jill Jackson

This is my favorite hymn  (Let There Be Peace on Earth) and as the words above say let this be the moment now.  Why would you want to wait another day to be at peace within yourself?  I don't know of a person, either living or dead, that was always in a state of peace. You can, however, strive to be at peace the majority of the time.

Today's Coaching Challenge

 For me being at peace means having a quiet mind and a knowing that even though I may not know how I know that everything in my life will be okay and that I can handle anything that comes my way.  How about you?  How do you know when you are at peace?  Wouldn't it be wonderful to be in a state of peace every day?

If you have never given peace of mind much thought this might seem challenging, but people were made to naturally be in a state of peace, not conflict.  Somewhere we lost sight of that.

Action to take

Think for a moment about what you can do to be more peaceful.  Start with just a minute of peace a day and add another minute each day.  By the end of a month, you will be at peace for 30 minutes a day and probably feeling wonderful about that.
