Make love, not war

Dear Editor:

My husband and I attended a party last night in a home with amazing art. My favorite piece was a huge heart with all the colors of the universe. It and the owner of it reminded me that at the end of the day we need to ask ourselves – did our actions result in adding to the love, peace and understanding on the planet?

A couple of days ago, I wrote a letter to the editor about an experience at the Pine Creek Cookhouse and I have to say that regardless of what was said and done, of what was understood or misunderstood, who and what was right and wrong, at the end of the day, my letter did not result in adding to the love, peace and understanding on the planet.

We are in turbulent times. Many of us are financially stressed. Financial stress can put on blinders that cause ignorance. Now more than ever we need to take the high road. To practice kindness – especially to those who may appear to be our enemies.

So to John and Juliet Wilcox, I say Namaste. May the divine in me honor the divine in you both. May we move forward and treat each other and the Earth gently. May we not get so caught up in the material world that we forget what is important and what is natural. Peace.

Cindy Madsen Buck
