Cultivating Peace

"Practicing mindfulness in each moment of our daily lives, we can cultivate our own peace. With clarity, determination, and patience--the fruits of meditation--we can sustain a life of action and be real instruments of peace. I have seen this peace in people of various religious and cultural backgrounds who spend their time and energy protecting the weak, struggling for social justice, lessening the disparity between rich and poor, stopping the arms race, fighting against discrimination, and watering the trees of love and understanding throughout the world."

--Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace is Every Step
