Peace, if You want it.

There’s an old saying: Peace begins within. But peace is also something we have to choose. It doesn’t begin if we don’t start. After we stop, that is. 😉

As Velcrow Ripper, the maker of the film Fierce Light observed, activism alone will not bring peace. But nor will meditating alone. Find peace within, then bring it into the world.

As John Lennon famously put it, “If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”

Did you know of Peace Day? That in 2001, the UN unanimously adopted a global ceasefire and non-violence day every Sept. 21? It’s been building for over a decade. With remarkable accomplishments the world over.

It’s called Peace One Day and it has quite a story.

Now they’re targeting a Global Truce for Sept 21, 2012.

Imagine all the people living life in peace.
You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us,
and the world will live as one.
— John Lennon, Imagine

Will you join us?
