As a peacemaker I will…

As a peacemaker I will…

Develop peace within my own heart and mind.
See the good in myself and other people.
Give others the benefit of the doubt.
Regard life as a precious gift.
Take time to look deeply and to listen.
Practise kindness – regardless of who “”deserves”” it.
Take responsibility for how I affect others.
Protect the vulnerable.
Learn from my mistakes.
Speak to myself like a true friend.
Notice what I already have.
Soften my reactiveness.
Accept difference – even when it challenges me.
Extend my vision of community to embrace all living beings.
Protect the earth. Honour the earth. Cherish the earth and all its living forms.
Learn the value of silence and of thoughtful speech.
Practise the power of forgiveness.
Open the space for joy, spirit and illumination to come in.
Refuse violence as a solution to human problems – ever.
See the unity in all of life
Live as a source of peace for others – and also for myself.
