Mia Barnes – If you asked someone to sum up your life in a sentence, what adjectives would they use? Which ones would you choose? Is it chaotic? Hectic? Busy?
While it’s fine to go hard sometimes, doing so all the time can lead to burnout. Why not strive for a life of harmony and balance? Here are seven intentional tips for creating more peace and quiet in your life.

Anne Rice – Peace, on the outside, is not something you have as a birthright. Peace is a quality of feeling that is developed through trials.

We are individuals expressing either what is dysfunctional or of peace, contributing our flavor to the soup of our environment.
What do you imagine the world becoming after the transfiguring is complete? The pain and struggle seen globally is our means to a new creation. I have the image of a seed in mind.
