What would make the world
A better place right now?

Simply that there might be
For each and every individual

A moment of internal peace and understanding
That was not fleeting but endured

And endured and endured and became
For each and every individual

An internal world of eternal peace and understanding
In which to dwell and share

Then we would wish to work tirelessly
To transform the way we think, speak and act

Till each and every individual lives
In an external world also

Of eternal peace and understanding
That is a thousand miles from here

But as we already know quite well
A journey of a thousand miles

Begins with a single step

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. I am attempting to make that step. I pray others follow, but if I walk alone then the scenery will be worth the journey.
