98th reason that I blog for peace: Because I can

Only two or three days in and I miss a day.  Oh well.  I'm not going to sweat it.  Because blogging for peace, like searching for peace is a journey.  It's not really how well you do it, it's that you do it.

Like many people, I feel overwhelmed when I look at the world, whether in my neighborhood or in my universe or in my soul.  How in the world can we have peace?  What can I do?

Right now, I can't remove landmines from playgrounds.  I can't feed more than a few of the starving children in the world.  I can't teach more than a couple of people that strength comes from diversity.  Right now, I can't sink into a meditative state to find my own peace.  I can't usually withhold judgement when the issue is personality or taste and not TRUTH.  I can't always hold my tongue when faced with irritating people.
Right now, all I know is that I am trying.  I am on my journey through peace.

And what I can do is blog.  I BLOG FOR PEACE BECAUSE I CAN.

You read my mind. If you look at the big picture, it does seem overwhelming. But if each person does what they can, then that's the best they can do. And if everybody does the best they can do, then that's all that matters.

Tell me...has this challenge caused you to be more peaceful or more stressed? I hope not stressed!

It IS challenging though, isn't it?
You are doing a fantastic job. Your words really lift me up. Thank you.

would love to join you in blogging but apart from the same rants over and over, could not think of enough to say to fill the days.
I applaud you, as always!
