Most of us believe we want a peaceful world, yet how important do we make peace in our daily lives?  We rush and hurry, argue and defend – acting from ego-based concerns and old, unconscious patterns, instead of from balanced, present-moment awareness.  Isn’t it time we stopped this robotic, fear-based way of living?  Good questions to ask ourselves throughout the day are:  How conscious am I right now?  What am I supporting?  The body always knows.  Is the body relaxed, the breath flowing?  Or am I in fight/flight mode with shallow breathing and tense shoulders?  World Peace is a fine goal, but how many of us are truly willing to set aside the wants, desires and demands of the ego to make peace the priority, in our hearts, homes, and relationships?  It may not be an easy thing to do, but it needs to be done.  As Gandhi so aptly said, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”
