I Dream of Peace

9/11 Laughter and Yoga for Peace

Where we all get along as living beings
Peace within and without - Om, shanti, om
In our action, hearts, mind
Now, this moment as we breathe
Inhale fresh air, shoulders back
Stand tall, stretch our arms up to the sky
Gather gratitude, love and peace
Exhale, let go of negativity or stress 
Circle arms back to our hearts
Prayer pose for compassion
It's a new day, let us salute the sun
Thank Mother Nature for its bounty 
As peaceful change-makers
We lead the way and dare to dream
Practice what we preach, do good
Be part of this revolution for peace
Read positive books and poems
Try yoga even if you're scared or meditate
World Peace today, tomorrow, always

Aasato ma sat gamaya
Tamaso ma jyotir gamaya
mritryor ma amritam gamaya
Lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu
OM Shanti Shanti Shantih OM
Lead us from darkness to Light
From death to life
from ignorance to the bliss of knowing Union
May all Beings be happy and free
OM Preace Peace Peace OM

P.S. This poem is inspired by the peace signs I see everywhere in San Francisco, by Sami's art, and a poetry book I got at City Lights Bookstore. I love books and yoga. They changed my life! Hope they'll help change yours too.
