Heart Work


It’s not enough to be a peaceful person,
not in today’s world
where the environment is a risk,
individuals are at war with themselves
giving rise to
countries at war with one another,
where there is so much stress
and isolation
for so many,
where the basic needs
of so many are never met,
where a small group of elite
makes the decisions for the masses…
No, being a peaceful person is not enough…
We must all strive to take action,
to let our quest for peace be realized
not only within our inner landscape
but also made manifest in the outer world.
Love is action.
It is generosity.
It is taking steps to alleviate the suffering
of the world.
Love is awake and aware.
It shares itself unconditionally
and exists that it might know itself.
If you search for peace,
broaden your idea of what it is.
You are not the only one
who will reap the benefits
of your good heart’s work.
