Sunday Dinner: Finding Peace


“We wander through our lives

not sure of what we’re searching for.

“What is my calling?” we might speak to ourselves again and again.

It’s a redundant question;

we might even shout out loud, with no return response.

The answer to our question is peacefulness.

Once we find as much as possible,

we can begin to enjoy simple pleasures, and passions,

without interruption.

Nothing will fall in line without a soft place to land.”


  Ron Baratono


“Silence is not absence of words.

Silence is the space where words arise and dissolve.

Without silence, words have no meaning”


Rashmit Kalra



“The one who has found inner silence,

stops pondering over the meaning of life

and starts living it.

That’s the journey from “going with the flow”

to “being the flow.”


  Rashmit Kalra


“Until he extends the circle of his compassion

to all living things,

man will not himself find peace.”


  Albert Schweitzer


“I have within me all that I need;

I am love and life in action.”


  Jodi Livon


“World peace must develop from inner peace.

Peace is not just mere absence of violence.

Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.”


The 14th Dali Lama, Tenzin Gyatso


“To be wise means to know when to stay silent.”

  Kamand Kojouri
