Life and living, replete with challenges, obstacles and discouragements, can seem to or actually be overwhelming. Decisions need to be made, deadlines have to be met and obligations must be fulfilled.
It is, therefore, no small wonder that, in all of our frenetic go, go, going, many of us regularly overlook or completely forget that life and living are not preordained to be perpetually chaotic and difficult.
"Be Worthy Of Peace" is a collection of familiar aphorisms intended to help in recalling that truism.
It does not, nor does it attempt to offer absolutes.
It does attempt to plant seeds of thought and consideration that may aid in bringing about resolutions, using short, easy to remember phrases rather than long, expansive narratives. It may even provide some assistance and insight when pondering life and living as a matter of course.
Just as life and living have not succeeded at permanently stifling all of our goals and efforts in the past, "Be Worthy Of Peace" reminds us that there are no permanently fixed reasons for them to be able to succeed in doing so now.
