First keep the peace within yourself,
then you can also bring peace to others.

Deep peace of the running wave to you,
Deep peace of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace of the shining stars to you,
Deep peace of the gentle night to you,
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you.
Deep peace to you.

On Friday, I officially ended my “Stone Soup” year with an address to the
Colorado Society of Association Executives. We ended our time together with
a commitment to create a more peaceful planet by creating more peace in our
own lives.

This message was reflected in a magnificent choral number my friend Kevin
and I enjoyed at a holiday concert in Boulder on Sunday evening (see the
Boulder above).

I challenge each of us to spend some energy this week making peace in our
lives. Right an old wrong, offer some assistance to someone in need, or
make an attempt to be more gentle with YOURSELF. Your efforts create a
more peaceful planet for us all!

Peace to you!
