The Season of Peace – Song and Loving the World to Change It

In the next two weeks the Peoples of the World will celebrate the Winter Solstice, Chanukah, Christmas,  Kwanzza and the turning of the New Year as it is observed by the Gregorian Calendar. This time of year is often referred to as The Season of Peace, though these days peace seems to be elusive indeed for an increasing number of the world’s people. 

Here are two short poems that seem to be very apt for this time of year:

Song

There are those who are
Setting fire to the World.
We are in danger.
There is time
Only to work slowly.
There is no time
Not to love.

~Deena Metzger

 

Try To Love The World

Do not try
To change the world.
You will fail.
Try to love the world.
Lo, the world is changed,
Changed forever.

~ Sri Chinmoy

May whatever Holy-Days you are observing and celebrating be filled with the light of wisdom and the warmth of compassion and may we all love each other and the world just a little bit more in the coming year.

In Peace,

Ken
