Lesson 255 in the ACIM goes hand in hand with one of Ghandi’s principles ‘if we want to contribute to peace we have to do more. We have to become more peaceful.’
The end is inherent in the means – Direct and simple.
When we choose to be peaceful, we extend peace to whoever we come in contact with.
Peace needs peaceful hearts
Peace needs funding
Peace needs activism
Peace needs a commitment
Make a commitment to peace in your heart right now.
Ask yourself in that silent space of your intuition-
“Where is there an attack thought I can surrender inside my own head?”
“Where is there a gun in my personal arsenal that I can retire?”
Change occurs in the human heart.
If you think opening your heart to change your thoughts to be loving is foolish or impossible, remember Bobby Kennedy’s words “some people see things as they are and say why, I dream things that never where and say why not.”
Why not peace.
You have the power with your love, with your forgiveness, with your kindness, with your peaceful state of awareness.
You have power with your thoughts.
Say it right now. “I AM PEACE.” Own it. Live it. Love it and you will be it.
Hold to your own joy. Hold to your bliss. Hold to your light. Illuminate the way be shining radiantly.
