Welcome to PeaceConsciousness.org

PeaceConsciousness.org is an online e-zine. This publication provides both a forum for exchanging ideas related to peace, and for suggesting means, at all levels, to use in resolving differences between individuals, groups, nations, or even species. We will learn not only where we have common ground, but also learn to celebrate our differences, because those differences provide richness, diversity, and a continual flow of new ideas for us to consider.

Eurydice to Orpheus

Come ye to Hades by the dark of night,
My hearts’ door is open, my candle burns bright,

Forget not your lyre or story to sing,
A fable of fire and promise you bring,

When I returned not, they say that you failed,
I would have the truth known, but it must be veiled.

Since we first learned Egypt’s histories,
It has been the way of all Mysteries,

Truth for those with ears to hear,
Beauty for eyes that see without fear

Far from over, our story’s not done,
We live on in legend, united as one.

-- Botticellired
