Meditate for some time each day

One of the most powerful ways to promote peace is to begin with ourselves.  By taking a few minutes each day to quiet our minds, we are promoting peace within.  And each time we do this, we are extending an invitation to the rest of the world to join with us.

This can be through meditation, prayer, walking silently, or just sitting in the quiet and letting your mind slow down. 

If you don't have a meditation or prayer practice, try this:

>Sit quietly in a chair with feet flat on the floor.

>Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths.

>Allow your body to relax.  Just let the chair and the floor hold your body while you let go of stress.

>Keep breathing, staying conscious of the in and out breath.

>That's it!

Doing this for just 5 minutes a day can be very helpful.  If you want, you could think of powerful, affirming words as you breathe in and out:

-- "Breathing in peace."
-- "Breathing out love."
-- "Breathing in harmony."
-- "Breathing out compassion."

      Because meditating is where I attempt to relinquish my painful grip on self-will.

      I try to do this often because it connects me better to what I believe in, with my inner self. It would be great if each person would take some time for him/herself and meditate..
