Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers

I pray today that there will be peace That peace will be a lasting breath inside of all living That peace will be deep breathing That peace will wing out in every direction traveling through the many colored spirals of time and space

I pray that stones will speak and wind will listen listing the heavy properties of stone into the warm light of sun That tall trees will pray from roots of wisdom That watery darkness will respect tree-prayer And that Earth—abused elder all around and ailing—will find solace in our new humility and forgive and protect us Live Earth has a guardian angel

I pray today that there will be peace That if I am not gifted enough to add light to light I may be poor enough to add nothing to conflict That if I am not wise enough to suggest solutions I am foolish enough to treat every stranger as a friend That as I am not complex enough to be clever I may yet remain simple enough to be honest

I pray today that there will be peace Not weak peace which is sallow emaciated cold and compromised That vanishes quickly at the end of words That is dreamless groundless and conceived without a home That peace rather then that dreams in spectrums of senses is multidimensional that carries dreams to distant worlds That stands in bright circles of prayer as in green-fire That is beautiful and supply as limbs of lovers That is moved by desire That is hot with hope

Better to error on the side of love: Peace forever young

I pray today that there will be peace That the peace of this prayer will have many children That the children of peace will inherit the Earth

I pray with you in this moment for everlasting peace. Your words are beautiful and how you describe words using examples are heaven sent. For me, the opposite of peace, is anything that upsets my natural state of mind-PEACE and balance. Remembering that there's always a choice, I choose peace. Bless you for reminding us that YES, we too can remain in peace regardless of temptations. Like this photo-it is a beautiful sunset and although it has many obstructions, PEACE is at its core.

thank you Serene and thank you Katja.  and certainly the more of us who participate and stand in the circles of prayer together, the greater the power and the possibilities of turning our prayers into shared realities.  blessings... david

NOT DESTRUCTION
EVERYBODY
NOT JUST US"
