Peace from the heart


Nazy Kaviani
by Nazy Kaviani

I start the New Year with just three wishes and no resolutions this year! Ha ha! Resolutions are hard. Either you try to achieve them, which is hard work, or you skip and ignore them, which is also hard, because you know you should be sticking with them and you aren't, and that makes you feel guilty! This year, my dear friends, I have no resolutions, zero! I have decided I am already doing my best and I don't want to hear another word about it! Heeh! What a grouchy way to start the New Year, don't you think?! Actually, I'm laughing my head off as I type these words, because I have decided to liberate myself from the black clouds of responsibility to really hard goals, such as quitting smoking, getting more organized, exercising, losing weight, cleaning the garage (again!), etc. No, thank you!

Instead, as the moments were getting closer and closer to 12:00, I concentrated on three wishes. I'll tell you about my 2nd wish, keeping the other two in my heart for now! My second wish was for world peace. I closed my eyes and with all my heart wished that there would be no more death and devastation in the world, and that peace would prevail worldwide immediately. Too many wars have already happened in my lifetime. I am not proud of that. I think if every citizen of the world understood the true humiliation the entire humanity must endure each time another senseless and preventable war is started, then people would feel more compelled to stop wars. If all nations protest wars vehemently, I doubt governments can initiate wars so easily. I wish for peace which should start in every human being's heart and mind first, spreading through families, tribes, nations, and the world. I think peace that starts in people's hearts is the longest lasting kind of peace, surpassing any treaty, any resolution, and any convention.

I hope the New Year is full of personal joy, comfort, peace, love, and health for you. I hope this is the year your love for the special people in your lives is renewed and enriched, helping you along farther and faster and lighter to achieve other big things in your lives. I hope those who don't have that special person in their lives yet, are hit with the thunder of love! Love is what it's all about, trust me on this!

Happy New Year Everybody!

Dear Beautiful People

by Nazy Kaviani on

Thank you all so much for sharing your kind and compassionate sentiments, and the beautiful music. I cannot imagine being any luckier than this! I am in the company of some of the nicest folks I have met in my life, albeit in cyberspace. To me, you guys couldn't get any more real than this! Thank you all and Happy Happy New Year.

Peace is the only way forward, up, and out for humanity.

Nazy....that was a very nice blog, and I wish you all the best. addition to wishing you a Happy New Year, when you and Nazy have that chelokabab, if you happen to go out, please avoid the establishments that have been cited for health code violations like the ones in Orange County.

Wishing everyone a food poisoning free New Year!


one more thing Nazy

I forgot to copypaste this for you. The effect of reading inspiring stories on our brain is amazing! 

"Just as you wouldn't mindlessly slather on toxins in your skin care or ingest nasty chemicals in your food, please be careful about what your mind ingests. Look for positive, inspiring stories..."  ~ please click on the enclosed link to read the article in full...don't worry, it's a quick read.

I share your wish for peace and justice in the world as well. 

P.S. I would love to have chelo kabob with you (butter, egg yolk and all)...I don't care for New Year resolutions either, compulsory exercises are the best way to go about keeping fit. And I won't lecture on the harm of cigarettes either, but nicotine sucks, really, seriously... although smoking one after chelo kabab doesn't sound that bad either :o)

Cheers to you & Peace, dear Nazy

Last night, I had the strangest dream

(Lyrics and music by Ed McCurdy)

Last night I had the strangest dream
I'd ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war

I dreamed I saw a mighty room
Filled with women and men
And the paper they were signing said
They'd never fight again

And when the papers all were signed
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads
And grateful prayers were prayed

And the people in the streets below
Were dancing round and round
And guns and swords and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground

Last night I had the strangest dream
I ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.

Happy New Year!

Three Things Beatles Say Are Required to Achieve Peace:

by This Ticket Valid One Way... on

Well you know me, always have to be thorough and anyway wouldn't want to leave out anyone from the Fantastic Four

CONVICTION:  You can't give up, no matter what. Even in the darkest days you have to keep on trying:

CONSCIOUSNESS:  You have to have faith in something much larger than yourself.  Spiritual types and atheists and agnostics call it by varous names, Ibut  believe they all will be pronven to be the same Energy one day not too far from here, relatively speaking. But for now if you don't believe me, take the name in this song as a metaphor.


You can't work alone. The beauty of this website. this little fishbowl, is that it is one. So let's see what our Fearless Leader, Cap'n Crunch (oh so sorry, I meant Captain Courageous) has to say on the subject.


Well it's past midnitght and I'm about to turn into a pumpkin.  Nazy-ja, I am preparing a reply to you on my blog. Pls. give it a look willyou, later or tomorrow?

Very nice blog, Ms.Kaviani

by Mona 19 on

May this year brings brotherhood, peace, friendship, and happiness to all humanity. May people of the earth see each other as members of one family, and the earth as their home.

I hope they learn how to respect and accept each other or at least learn how to tolerate one another.

Best wishes Always, Mona ;)


Strange how we forget all about ..

Strange how we forget all about Love itself...




You know, it's funny, Nazy, because...

by Rosie twith Gills (not verified) on

I was just drafting my replies to my own blog, your post included, and one of the things I was writing is that whatever resolutions I made during the summer, the only resolution one can really make is to speak one's truth AT THAT TIME because we are always evolving and we don't know how or why we'll change in the future, even just tomorrow.

Regarding this website and its mission of peace and freedom, one of its problems is its very its greatest achievement: that it is so SO UNIQUE AND SPECIAL that the task of moderating it is lies somewhere between its magic and its magistrates. And it's such a delicate balance.

Right now on your blog I just want to celebrate its magic and its magician.

All my love, Naz, always,


Nazi aziz, very touching.

 You said that  " My second wish was for world peace. I closed my eyes and with all my heart wished that there would be no more death and devastation in the world, and that peace would prevail worldwide immediately.""

The key is " immediatly ", since peace on earth is inevitable,  just needs more time and as you said it has to start at personal level, and from the heart.

Wish you and all the human family peace and health,

Your a Special One too Nazy Jaan ;0)

May your Wishes come true indeed Nazy Jaan and you are indeed adding something good to this World with your wonderful personality and good heart.

Happy New Years and No Resolution as you say but Good thoughts and Love to accompany you in this journey.




well said Nazy jan

by IRANdokht on

First let me say that I didn't have any resolutions this year either, when a friend asked me last night, I basically said the same thing you just did :0)  no thank you!  

I also share your sentiments about peace and I really wish that people would stop justifying and rationalizing acts of war! only if everyone did...

Thanks for the peace and love reminder. We need to think about it every day



Nazy jan,

by Princess on

Again, you hit the nail on the head. If every one of us harbor love, peace and respect for one another in our hearts, there won't be any wars and bloodshed and all the ugliness that we regularly witness around the world. But as you say, the main thing is, we all have to start with ourselves. 

I join you in your wish, and here's to the day we have peace and harmony on this planet.

Happy New Year and cheers!
