true peace

"Most of us have spent our lives caught up in
plans, expectations,ambitions for
the future,
in regrets, guilt or shame about
the past.
To come into
the present
is to stop the war."

Jack Kornfield


Is not Christ in all those areas?
As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen
He was there in our past, is now in our present, and will be in our future
Have Hope

I LOVE everything about this quote. I even love that it makes me uncomfortable about where I usually live. Perhaps I need a, "Stop the War" bumper sticker. hahaha Thanks Rob

This is so good for me today, Roberta. Thank you.

Ah, if I'd only turned on my computer on SATURDAY and read this... I have been waging that very war almost all weekend long.

Oops, I guess that statement was another skirmish in the war, wasn't it?

Thank you, Roberta!

ah yes Evelyn,
we all wage this war don't we? and learning to stop the war can be such a slow process yet so worth it. i just need to be reminded about 10 times a day!
