Reflections on life original (ok for all ages)

Published on

This is the first of our Reflections on Life Slide-Shows, created for a conference on Community Cohesion in 2009. It is self-contained (not in two parts) and the images are ok for all ages.
The PDF with comments on Reflections on Life relates to this SlideShow.
It has been available for download from My Resources on the TES site for just over a year, and has been viewed over 8,000 times, so I am happy to find a way of sharing it more widely.
The slides are timed to enable viewers to read the texts - but it seems not to work here. I hope it is retained when the slide show is downloaded.
All the Reflections on Life series work best with music and if you contact us on our website - www.bluelotus.co - we can send the Slideshow and music on a DVD.

  3. 9. Nothing is more precious than peace. Peace is the most basic starting point for the advancement of humankind.   Daisaku Ikeda
  4. 16. If there is to be peace in the world, There must be peace in the nations.   If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities.   If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbours.   If there is to be peace between neighbours, There must be peace in the home.   If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart.   -- Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.)
  5. 23. Peace may sound simple – one beautiful word – But it requires everything we have, every quality, every strength, every dream, every high ideal.   Yehudi Menuhin (1916-1999)
  6. 31. The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the centre of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this centre is really everywhere, it is within each of us. Black Elk (1863-1950)
  7. 37. You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.   Malcolm X (1925-1965)

  10. 48. Look to this day For it is life, The very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of existence - The bliss of growth - The glory of action - The splendour of beauty. For yesterday is already a dream And tomorrow is only a vision, But today, well lived, Makes every yesterday a dream of happiness And every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day. Morning prayer, translated from Sanskrit.
  11. 54. Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.   Jesus – from the Gospel of St. Matthew
