World Peace Day

Today is 


One of my favorite mantras is Snatam Kaur's Servant of Peace


 Aad Sach,
 Jugaad Sach 
Haibhay Sach,
 Nanak Hosee Bhay Sach 

Prayer of St Francis of Assisi:

 Lord, make me an instrument of Thy Peace;
 Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
 Where there is injury, pardon;
 Where there is doubt, faith;
 Where there is despair, hope;
 Where there is darkness, light; 
Where there is sadness, joy.

 Oh Divine Master,
 Grant that I may not so much seek 
To be consoled as to console;
 To be understood, as to understand;
 To be loved, as to love;
 For it is in giving that we receive,
 It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
 It is in dying that we are born into eternal life.

Will there be a day that we will all live as one, in peace?
I find it hard to believe. But I would like to..........
I know there are a lot of people with good intentions.
Tonight I will meditate for peace at 8 o'clock together with my mantra group.
Just as thousands will do with me.

How will you celebrate this day?

May peace be with you :)


  1. Beautiful post Marianne. I am praying for peace too.

  2. Ah, Marianne, you know I share your feelings about this. Every time I see a photo or video of two very different animals cuddling - or sharing their space, I wonder why can't the human race do this? No matter what we look like on the outside - we are the same inwards....

    But like you and Lisa - and all of our Blogging Family - I pray - continually for a World filled with Peace and Love.

    Lovely and different selections here....but all convey that exact same message! This is a beautiful post - and a timely one.

    At 8 (your time tonight), I will still be at a rehearsal for *Moby Dick*.... but now, and after for sure (at 8 my time)...I will light my Renee candle and offer some ardent prayers for our world and all who live in it.

    Love to all,

    ♥ Robin ♥

  9. Beautiful post Marianne!!! here's to having every day be world peace day!!!!

  10. beautiful! I think too many people today don't know the meaning of peace. They're in a hurry to get someplace and think only of themselves.
    Peace begins with us.
    You are a shining example of that.♥

    Beautiful examples above. Thank you for posting all of them.


  11. So thoughtful and beautiful.... sentiments and the art. You are always so giving of yourself and your talent.
