PEACE starts in the HEART

Sunday September 21st is International World Peace Day.
Here in Edmonton I am blessed to be a part of the wonderful group organizing World Peace Day Concerts Edmonton 2014 happening Saturday and Sunday at Wunderbar on Whyte Ave.
It's going to be an amazing expression of joy and activism through music.
The world can get hectic with negativity and strife and so today and every day I stop to breathe.
Here today I am posting the only prayer I have ever written.

BREATHE
Breathe.
It’s really that simple.
Put Peace in your every Breath
from your first to your last.
Breathe, Peace,
Breathe, Peace, Breathe…
Until you can not Breathe without Peace,
until without Peace you can not Breathe.
Breathe, Peace,
Breathe, Peace, Breathe…
The way your infant breath came
before life and chaos
consumed the gentle newborn breathing.
Breathe, Peace,
Breathe, Peace, Breathe…
The way your last Breath will echo your first.
The way your future will echo your ancestral past.
The way the world was meant to turn
within the universe.
Breathe, Peace,
Breathe, Peace, Breathe…
The way trees bend.
The way rivers flow.
The way the moon reflects the sun.
Breathe, Peace,
Breathe, Peace, Breathe…
The way a kiss feels in the heart.
The way sunlight feels in December.
Breathe, Peace,
Breathe, Peace, Breathe…
The way it is meant for each of us.
How it can be for all of us.
From the first breath to the last.
Breathe, Peace,
Breathe, Peace,
Peace…, Peace…, Peace.

Peace to you all from the core of my heart.
