Learn to know and love yourself
with all your imperfections,
to let go with gentleness,
rather than to extricate
those doings that pain
self and neighbor,
to see in all that is present
the Presence of God,
and thus be transformed
for a troubled world
into a genuine prophet of peace.

I love this!!!! Prophet of peace – an opportunity for each of us, each moment – just by acceptance and bringing God in that moment. Soooo beautiful. Thank YOU! 🙂
