We must recognize that the suffering of one person or one nation is the suffering of humanity.
|—||The Dalai Lama (via lazyyogi)|
Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it. We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment.
