Welcome to the Peaceful Pathway
Did you ever wonder what it would be like to live in a world where people were kind to each other and to the planet? The world where respect did not have to be earned, because being respectful of yourself, others and the earth was just what everyone did? Where smiling at a perfect stranger was the common place because everyone knew that a smile out of the blue can truly make a difference in someone’s day? What if we were grateful for all that we had, and, because we knew that there would always be enough, we no longer felt the need to buy bigger, better, more. What if we learned not be wasteful, to share with those that did not have as much? And what if we all learned to help each other so that, in times when we needed help ourselves, we knew that help would be there because that was just the way it was? And what if our houses were smaller but our parks were bigger and healthier? What if the air and water were clean if plastics no longer floated as islands in the ocean? What if we all switched to sustainable energy sources and if we could each provide enough energy not only to run our own homes but to sell back to our town and cities to help run public buildings?
If all this sounds like a fairy tale, think again. This is a fairy tale that we can create, all of us together doing our part, as little as it may seem. This could be our world, but only if we truly embrace it in our hearts and start living it one deed at a time. Smile at someone today just because, pay it forward by paying for a stranger’s groceries or gas, start a mulch pile, plant a garden, volunteer, change one incandescent light bulb to a compact fluorescent bulb, turn off the water when you are brushing your teeth, wash your clothes in cold water or, if you need hot water for the wash, try rinsing in cold. All of these little things add up to a lot when each person does his or her part. This is what my website is all about, walking the peaceful pathway so that we can create the world that works for everyone and in which we can all live together as one big family.
