ORANGE MOON : Peace Is Within

A signed print from an original illustration by Marghanita Hughes

size: 8.5 x 11 inches

We can visit the garden of peace at any given time, for Peace is within…

My latest Illustration of my book character Orange Moon (Gentle Warrior) “Peace Is Within” was inspired after reading the beautiful and all inspiring book ” Peace Is Every Step” by Thich Nhat Hanh

Here is a beautiful poem from the book : from the editors introduction page:

Peace is every step.

The shinning red sun is my heart.

Each flower smiles with me.

How green, how fresh all that grows.

How cool the wind blows.

Peace is every step.

It turns the endless path to joy.

These lines summarize the essence of Tich Nhat Hanh’s message – that peace is not external or to be sought after or attained. Living mindfully, slowing down and enjoying each step and each breath, is enough. Peace is already present in each step, and if we walk in this way, a flower will bloom under our feet with every step. In fact the flowers will smile at us well on our way.

Wishing you all a beautiful and peaceful week, love Marghanita xx
