Peace Meditations - Meditation II


Begin by Breathing in...
Breathing out...(repeat several times)
Read the folowing and spend some time reflecting on the words:

Let us not use bombs and guns to overcome the world. Let us use love and compassion. Peace begins with a smile. Smile 5 times a day at someone you really do not want to smile at; do it for peace. Let us radiate the peace of God and so let His light extinguish in the world and in the hearts of all people hatred.

Mother Teresa

Imagine an inner smile in your heart.
Breathe in and breathe out – smile
Imagine a smile on your friends faces.
See them smiling.
Imagine someone who is sad, frightened,
angry or in pain.
Send them your smile.

Today remember Mother Teresa’s words and smile 5x.
