“Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.” ― Albert Schweitzer
Today is the United Nations International Day of Peace. It is a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. That is a great ideal to strive for. I envision a world where we have a day of peace every day. I believe we can achieve this eventually but it will not happen just because an organization says so. We have to feel it inside and desire it more than anything else. It has to be priority if we are to survive as a planet. Tara Brach describes compassion as “the act of allowing ourselves to be deeply touched by the vulnerability and suffering that exists within ourselves and all beings.” True compassion involves attuning to the presence of suffering and then taking responsive action. It is that heartfelt response to alleviate suffering that brings us to the point of wanting to make a positive difference in the our own lives and in the lives of others.
Dear Angels, today as I paused hourly to meditate and pray for world peace I wondered how many in our world were thinking about peace and getting along with even the people in their own homes. It is a conscious choice we make to either be peaceful or be the opposite of peace as we walk on Gaia’s back.
Dear Ones, so many times you choose to take the easy way out of responsibility by pointing fingers at others and judging their behavior. “They” are creating chaos. “They” are not being peaceful. We say to you, focus on what “you” are doing, thinking, and saying in the world. Any time you are looking outside of yourself and seeing something that you judge as wrong, there is more clearing to be done inside of you to release the judgment. If you are depending on others to act in a certain way so you can be at peace, then you are missing the entire point. Peace has to begin inside of you. By even thinking that someone else or a situation can affect your peace, you are giving your power away and will be constantly looking for fulfilment outside of yourself. Dear Ones, it is already inside of you to be peaceful. It is your birthright, so claim it. Find your way back to the very center of your soul which is pure love, pure peace and pure joy.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to remain in my heart and focus on the peace that passes all understanding.
