“This is a very important book. Despite all the knowledge and intelligence the human species has acquired, we still are saddled with about 70 active conflicts in the world. To become a peacemaker, whatever your condition is, whatever your walk of life you live in, you must decide first of all to become a peacemaker, and then all the rest will fall into place. This is what happened to Deri Joy Ronis…Dear Reader, as you read this book, jot down any ideas which come to you during the day or the night and you will soon see your life become a beautiful work of art, blessed by untold happiness. Please try it.”

“Deri Joy has written this book to encourage and empower all those who want to help bring the world to a new level of peaceableness, but are unsure of the actual possibilities…Her gift to us in this book is the path she opens up to lead us beyond frustration over the present state of the world toward creative peacebuilding action grounded in spiritual awareness. Her wonderful advice- go hug a tree- is an important practice in my own life. Just think of how much we could learn about relating to all life on the planet.
