Peace According to the Peace-Makers

World Peace

Peace is an Inside Job

Christmas is a time to recognize the birth of a great teacher, who taught us to practice peace and forgiveness. At WWH, we embrace lessons from all faiths to help us navigate religious, political, and personal conflicts.

There are many paths toward peace and fulfillment and they all begin inside. We must commit to kindness and compassion as our life’s top priority. Stop the angry and unkind thoughts, and replace them with goodness or neutral ideas. It’s not easy when our hearts are full of pain and fear, but by building a calm inner space we can control our words and actions, and change our world.

Join us in our goal to live peacefully in the world.

Think compassion. Live healing and forgiveness.

Even After All this Time
By Hafez (See "The Gift") - the poet from Iran - who said “I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.”*

Perhaps there are some unusual metaphors from Astronomy these days which Hafez would have enjoyed?
