DAY FOUR 

Reverence for Life is:

EACH PERSON ACCEPTING THEIR OWN LIFE AS A GIFT

Your own life is equally deserving of reverence and respect as all other life.  Treat your life with kindness and empathy, accepting it as a gift to be treasured.

Aspire to reach your highest potential, both inwardly and outwardly.

What does this mean for us and how can we access a peaceful moment each day?

Find a quiet place where you can sit comfortably, undisturbed, for 10 or 15 minutes, maybe under a tree or in some other natural environment, or indoors in front of a candle or a vase of flowers.  Take a few deep breaths, then just let the world go by.  Let your own thoughts come to rest.  Let them come and let them go.

Just sit - quietly - expecting no result and no reward.

Be still.

If this feels comfortable, repeat it, whenever you can make the time.
