Today is International Day of Peace

"Peace Day should be devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples…This day will serve as a reminder to all peoples that our organization, with all its limitations, is a living instrument in the service of peace and should serve all of us here within the organization as a constantly pealing bell reminding us that our permanent commitment, above all interests or differences of any kind, is to peace."

With the world in such a tumultuous state most of the time, it’s becoming much harder to find peace, but peace is possible.

Peace is not something tangible, it costs nothing, and it is attainable for anyone. Peace is something that comes from within and we are the only ones who can bring peace to ourselves and others.

In honor of Peace Day, lets set our egos aside and spend today finding that inner peace and sharing it with the world.

Meditations and yoga are just a couple of things that can bring inner peace, but it doesn’t stop at the end of the a meditation or yoga session. We can continue bringing peace into our lives by biting our tongue a little more, sharing love where we can, and having hope in our world and its people.

Finding that peace within yourself is the first step to changing the world.
