Peace, a Modern Prayer Flag


Peace. Our gift to each other.

"If we have no PEACE, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other." (Mother Teresa)

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know PEACE." (Jimi Hendrix)

"Mankind must remember that PEACE is not God's gift to his creatures, PEACE is our gift to each other." (Elie Wiesel)

Creativity, a Modern Prayer Flag


Creativity. The ability to create. It’s one of things that makes us human -- our ability to bring things into existence. Whether it be an idea, a work of art, a poem, a story, a song... It can sometimes feel elusive, yet if we work at it and nurture it and pursue it, who knows what we can create? Danny Gregory, the author of The Creative License says: "As you awaken your creativity, you stir the cauldron of your life. Things are bound to bubble to the surface."

Breathe, a Modern Prayer Flag


Breathe: Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale. Big inhale. Big exhale. It’s a beautiful rhythm. To breathe is to be alive. The English word “spirit” comes from the Latin 'spiritus': “soul, courage, vigor, breath,” and is related to 'spirare': “to breathe.”

Liberty & Prosperity, a Modern Prayer Flag


Liberty and Prosperity. It’s the state motto of New Jersey. I think it’s also the perfect business motto for the self-employed. To have the liberty to work on our own terms and to make enough money to support ourselves. Liberty (personal freedom) ... and Prosperity (an economic state of growth, rising profits and full employment) for all.

Kindness, a Modern Prayer Flag


Kindness. The quality of being considerate and humane. It may be a little thing, but doesn’t it just make the world and our daily lives so much better? How good does it make you feel when someone does you a small kindness? And when you can return a kindness?

This flag features a quote that Anna Laetitia Barbauld wrote in 1811: “That humble current of little kindnesses, which, though but a creeping streamlet, incessantly flows; although it glides in silent secrecy within the domestic walls, and along the walks of private life, and makes neither appearance nor noise in the world; pours, in the end, a more copious tribute into the store of human human comfort and felicity, than any sudden and transient flood of detached bounty, however ample, that may rush into it with a mighty sound.”
