Coming Home to YOU


A copy of this weeks email from Bob Beverly’s The Dig…

peace is that soft tone of voice, lined with grace, warmth, patience, understanding, and acceptance

speak to me the way you’d speak to a baby, and we’ll all get along a lot better

do you have to make yourself feel better by putting someone else down? why not just flat out brag and say “i am smart” with no need to mention that you think we are dumb compared to you?

peace comes when we admit the way things are, the things we have to do, the basic structure of our life. if you have to make a living because you weren’t born with a silver spoon in your mouth, then you probably won’t have the time to read five novels a week. acceptance is hard come by, but pays dividends in terms of self-assessment and realistic judgment.

blessed are the peacemakers

but notice the making part

the effort in “i am sorry”

the hard won humility of “i am mistaken”

the tearful confusion in “my way of looking at the world is 86% mistaken”

the work of starting over

certainty, arrogance, self-righteousness, the usual way of doing things–it takes such little effort

peace doesn’t just float in on a cloud

we’ve got to make it happen.

peace is a choice, a deliberate act, a noble intention comprised of thinking, understanding, compromise, the bigger picture

blessed are the peacemakers

oh yes
