A common space for harmonic peacemakers
Let your imagination dream with the beauty of the Earth breathing the breeze coming of spring. Let your soul fly in search of peace. Let love in your heart. Let the hope to be your star. Let peace invades your life.

To love. To be loved.
To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you.
To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair.
To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple.
To respect strength, never power.
Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.
- Arundhati Roy
good poetry pulls us into the beauty of our being
such a good one from gibran on fear
sharing it on fb
Befor entering the sea, a river trembles with fear.
She looks back at the path she has traveled, And
in front of her, she sees an ocean so vast, that to enter,
there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.
But there is no other way. The river can not
go back, nobody can go back. The river needs to
take the risk of entering the ocean
because only then will fear disappear,
because that's where the river will know,
it's not about disappearing into the ocean,
but of becoming the ocean.
- Khalil Gibran
