The practice of peace and reconciliations is one of the most vital and artistic of all human actions.

I recommend that we set up a small room in our homes and call it a "breathing room," where we can be alone and practice just breathing and smiling. You may want to have a small bell, a few cushions, and perhaps a vase of flowers. Every time you feel upset, go to that room, open the door slowly, sit down, invite the bell to sound, and begin to breathe. I believe that every home should have one room for breathing. Simple practices like conscious breathing and smiling are very important. They can change our civilization.
