Haiku: Peace Lover…

09/12/2012

“It is no longer good enough to cry peace, we must act peace, live peace, and live in peace.” Shenandoah proverb

Haiku: Peace Lover...

Haiku: Peace Lover…

Stay focused on Peace.
My Heroes are Peace Lovers
In words, actions, deeds…

“It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Haiku: Peace Lover...

Haiku: Peace Lover…

Stay centered on Peace.
our global exchange matters
Meditate on Peace…

“Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.” John Lennon

Haiku: Peace Lover...

Haiku: Peace Lover…

Be bold about Peace
connect, show compassion, love
My heroes love peace…

I’ve had my share of heroes in this lifetime; I can’t possibly pick just one. A few heroes are:  My parents who were my first teachers, my yoga/meditation teachers, my family and closest friends – I am grateful to all of them. What are your thoughts? What would you do to maintain peace? How do you contribute to making the world a peaceful place? Do share! Thank you. :-)

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Daily Prompt: My Hero! Tell us about your hero.

*Please bear with me as I catch up on your blogs and commenting…I’m back on track; albeit at a slow pace. Thank you all for your patience! :-)

Positive Motivation Tip: Everyone wants peace but few work passionately to protect it and ensure that others have a chance at it… Be a Hero and Act to support Peace for all.

    Great post Elizabeth (I always wondered what EOF was for)
    Thanks for the pingback

      TY Alastair! They are the initials of my name. :-)

      • 11/12/2012 4:52 am

        Yeah, I noticed that. I never saw it before, my eyes always seemed to skim over it or not take it in

      • 12/12/2012 5:37 pm

        Glad you noticed… I like the new gravatar photo of you. :-)

    Thanks for this post – yes, peace. My day has been absolute hell and now I know how to make tomorrow better. My mum (78) has broken her hip so I am doing masses of running around for her because she refuses to be in hospital, Husband, Anthony (nearly 77) is having mini-strokes in the nursing lodge and dementia is creeping up, son, Ming, still doesn’t have a car licence so I am doing 100kms per day just driving to and fro for all of them and I just wanted to escape until I read your post – saved by your bell!

    • 12/12/2012 5:39 pm

      Oh Julie dear! I’m sorry to read about your mom…Hope she’s on the mend. Sending virtual hugs to your mom, you, Anthony and Ming… will be over asap. Blessings too! {{{HUGS}}}

      TY Kz! Glad you liked that line… It does take a bit of heroism to stand for peace in our world today. ;-)

    Excellent post… :-)

    My mother was my hero and the peacemaker of the century. In the midst of turmoil, in a house full of chaos and occasional ugliness. She knew how to convince my brother, my sister, and me to go to sleep because tomorrow will be better. It always was.

    • 12/12/2012 5:42 pm

      I love that about your mom… Great advice she gave too because we can look forward to better days, no matter what! TY! :-)

    Wonderful post Eliz, and the words of John Lennon’s song says it all. He was a lover of peace, and made it known in so many ways, doing his bit for Peace; I admire him for that.

    • 12/12/2012 6:24 pm

      I did too… I love the images I found on Wikipedia that are tied to john’s peace project… TY for your feedback. ;-)

    I’ve always loved that John Lennon song. Peace in our time. Is it too wild a dream? “‘Da pacem Domine in diebus nostris.”

    • 12/12/2012 6:25 pm

      TY Adin,
      Amen… and I hope it is not! Sometimes I wonder too. :-)

      TY for your kind feedback… I’m enjoying exploring Haiku as I practice being brief. ;-)

  11. 12/12/2012 9:17 am

    What a wonderful post! Love it! :-D

  12. 12/12/2012 12:02 pm

    I love your heroes ;) I also love the fact that that this post will inspire people to act peacefully – if only the entire world would listen…

    • 12/12/2012 6:40 pm

      Haha Dianne TY! I wish the world would become more peaceful… Glad you liked the course. :-)

    You are my hero, Elizabeth, for all you do for peace. Reading your blog makes me a better person, which I hope will help make the world just a little more peaceful. God bless. Kozo

    • 14/12/2012 1:45 am

      TY Kozo and I appreciate your feedback and your blog message too… In our own way, many of us bloggers do our bit for peace. I’m enjoying the sessions and meditations. :-)

    Lovely haiku, as always :)

    • 14/12/2012 8:06 am

      TY Tilly for your feedback. I love haiku a lot as it’s teaching me to be brief… something I need. :lol:

    My prayer for 2013 is to get peace back within my immediate family. I am worn out tired over my kids not speaking to each other. It has to stop.

      Sending love and light Babs… I know this too in my extended family. Blessings!

    I feel if you give your best …and try to treat and talk to others as the Golden Rule says…you will bring PEACE around you…What you give of yourself is usually reflected back at you…I truly believe this…mkg
