Are You At Peace Within Yourself?

Are You At Peace With Yourself?“When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.” Peace Pilgrim

I can remember when I first taught my children how to tie their shoes – it was around the time they started school. The look of concentration on their faces, as they remembered the way to get those loops in the right way. But once they truly got it, instead of concentrating as they tied their shoes, they could talk, laugh, read, any number of things at the same time.
