Small “Zones Of Peace Action Step (#3 0f 10):
I pledge to do my utmost, everyday in everyway, to keep my small “zones of peace” free of violence and deceit.
Mahatma Gandhi offered us the words below – “
We do best to begin by carving out territories or zones of peace in our personal relations where violence and deceit won’t be used.”
As far as our Small “Zones Of Peace” Project is concerned this is the “Peace Action Step” that is the centerfold, the essence of peace-building. There is much to say about it. I've got stories -- and -- more stories. I hope you do too that you will be willing to share here.
This step is a whopper!
Built into it is all about climbing the Mountain of Awe and snakey behaviors; the light and the dark side of peace action for real.
Hearing what your comments and thoughts are about this pledge can make a difference in the impact our discussion here can have for real time peace building. Please be generous and share your stories.
