Excerpt from 365 Meditations:
In fragile times such as these, strategies
for peace cannot be slow moving. The
reconciliation of nations, the struggle against
oppression, the solution to poverty, and the
need for cooperation among religions all need
urgent attention. In fact if you answer the call
to peace, your calendar will grow heavy, and
your hours thin. There is too much to do, and
too few willing workers.
For those of us who feel overwhelmed by the
mission for peace, Marcus Braybrooke's recent
collection of instruction, wisdom, and anecdotes
provides a much needed relief. 365
Meditations for a Peaceful Heart and a Peaceful
World is an assortment of passages and
lessons to give us calm and put us at ease.
Braybrooke's primary insight is Gandhi's "being
the change you wish to see in the world", or as
Braybrooke puts it, "the search for peace in
society and the world cannot be separated from
the quest for inner peace in the heart."
