September 21, 2021
Today we celebrate The International Day of Peace (September 21, 2021). The philosophy of Peace Day is simple enough. If we can practice peace for twenty-four hours, we can commit ourselves to the practice of peace each and every day of our lives. Today’s celebration is meant to remind us of what we need to do every day.
This is the final reflection for this year’s Eleven Days of Peace. These insights into peace were gleaned from some of the great Spiritual Teachers of our time. We hope you have found them meaningful. If you missed any of them, you can click here for the document.
Every 21st of the month, we offer you a reflection on peace. Feel free to share your insights with us. We would love to share your insights on our website. Send your reflections to:
“You must give birth to your images.
They are the future waiting to be born.
Fear not the strangeness you feel.
The future must enter you
long before it happens.
Just wait for the birth,
for the hour of new clarity.”
—Rainer Maria Rilke
When I am doubtful or fearful, I will imagine peace with all my heart.
I will strive to be what I desire for the World.
I will give birth to peace in every thought, word, and deed.
