Today is International Peace Day.
Today let go of contention, arguing, debating, meddling, gossiping and fighting.
Tao Te Ching Chapter 68
The great generals are not warlike
The great warriors do not get angry
Those who are good at defeating enemies do not engage them
Those who are good at managing people lower themselves
It is called the virtue of non-contention
It is called the power of managing people
It is called being harmonious with Heaven
The ultimate principle of the ancients
Today, hold to the one.
Tao Te Ching Chapter Ten
In holding the soul and embracing oneness
Can one be steadfast, without straying?
How to do this?
Tao Te Ching Chapter
I have three treasures
I hold on to them and protect them
The first is called compassion
The second is called conservation
The third is called not daring to be ahead in the world
Compassionate, thus able to have courage
Conserving, thus able to reach widely
Not daring to be ahead in the world
Thus able to assume leadership
Today, here in Athens I will be meditating for peace with others at an event. Where ever you are, who ever you are, for a moment, bring love into your heart and seek the peace. This is the true self, this is the true path. Will you join us?
