Peace In Every Step

One of Buddhist writer Thich Nhat Hanh’s books is Peace Is Every Step. When I first read the title I mistook the word “is” for “in.”  After reading the book I understand the difference. We all long for peace, in our lives, in our communities, and throughout the world. Yet peace seems so elusive on every front.

We begin to turn it around with prayer.  Pray for the peace that “passes all understanding,” be it in your own mind and heart, peace for others who experience turmoil, and for the places of unrest throughout the world, although those places seem to be ever increasing.

We also turn it around by beginning with a concentrated effort to bring peace to every step we take, every word we speak, every thought that comes to mind, and every move we make.

We experience peace in every step, when peace is every step.
