Scrolling through Facebook and the internet, I see a lot of wishes this time of year for peace on Earth, world peace. Happiness for everyone, love and joy to one and all.
It's never going to happen.
We, as a human race, just don't "get it" yet. Certainly you see that. We "smh" about this atrocity or that injustice and wonder when it's all going to change.
It can't change.
Ah, there is an unless!
Unless...you, WE, create that change. Starting right now, this instant.
Surely you want peace on Earth, right? Then start being peaceful. We need to BE what we expect to see in the world. Don't post on Facebook how angry you are that the doctor made you wait 30 minutes. Don't post photos of the license plate of the guy who cut you off. Refrain from posting every fear, worry and anxiety that keeps you up at night.
Outraged that clothing is imported from Bangladesh? Then buy your clothes from a source that brings you peace. Don't focus on your outrage.
Sick and tired of waiting for that late appointment? Then switch to an office that brings you peace. Don't focus on being sick and tired.
Upset about something that happened to your child at school? Be the role model and handle it with peace. Don't focus on the upset.
Let your anger lead you to peaceful action, then LET IT GO. (Disney was right on the money with this one).
What we put out into the world comes back to us tenfold. It's the Law of Attraction. But it not only comes back to you tenfold, it comes back to each and every one of us tenfold as well. We are all energy, and we are all connected energetically. It's quantum physics.
Your feelings and words are energy. And the Law of Conservation states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only converted from one form to another.
Do you want your angry rantings to be converted into energy that will affect your family? Of course not. But it goes deeper than that. You may spare your family by concealing your outward anger, but you can't keep it from yourself, therefore you can't keep it from having a ripple effect on the world.
Thus inhibiting world peace.
"Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me" aren't just seasonal song lyrics from 1955. They're true. Peace MUST begin with us, and the sooner we realize that, the faster we'll get to experiencing
Live in love,
