“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love.” Francis of Assisi
What comes to mind whenever most people hear of Saint Francis of Assisi is his love and devotion to animals. He definitely is a protector and advocate for the beloved animals of the planet in all forms. What is not so well known is that he gave up a luxurious life of wealth to become a Franciscan friar and took a vow of poverty. He became a monk during his young adulthood when he started receiving messages from God. He gave up everything to live a life of solitude and peace.
Dear Angels, I can so relate to Saint Francis’s desires for inner peace and bringing that forward into the world. Tomorrow has been designated as the International Day of Peace and every year folks all over the world focus on peace on this day, and some for the entire week. It is my heart’s desire that we focus on it every day, not just once a year. Peace is something we often recognize by its absence.
Dear Ones, what you focus on will surely show up for you. When your intention is pure the manifestation comes with a quickening. Do not just “follow the leader” in your efforts though, Dear Ones. If you come to the table to speak about peace, make sure you are holding peace in your heart. Whatever is being shown from you, stay in integrity with what you are holding inside. Any incongruency throws a cog into the wheel and slows down the process of forward momentum. Examine your hearts, Dear Ones. See if there is anything there that hinders the flow of love. When you can stand tall and shout to the world your commitment to be in peace, then you are ready to be the leader you came here to be. Step up to the plate. Your name is being called. Show the world the presence of peace inside of you.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to be ready to pick up the gauntlet for peace.
