Time For Peace

posted by The MEGA Coach

 

“Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.”

 

I remember hearing these words every time I went to see Eric Butterworth’s Sunday Service at Avery Fisher Hall in NYC.  They are nice words, beautiful words and they may be the first steps to consciously creating peace.  Most importantly, we need to conduct ourselves in kind, peaceful and caring ways.

As the world watches the upheaval in Egypt, we are being given an opportunity to look at our lives.
How am I creating peace in my life?
Am I a peaceful person?
How do I treat others?

There are many ways that we can contribute to the world we live in.
The simplest way is to start with the people in our lives, the people that we interact with.
Every day we have choices of how to respond to people and situations that create either peace or fighting.

Peace is a function of unconditional love and caring.
War, fighting, control, hatred and anger is a function of the ego and fear.

A good friend recently told me that the Middle East dominates the entire world
and that until there is peace in the Middle East the world economy will suffer.

All I know is that each of us has a choice of how to live our lives and use our time, energy and resources. When we focus on helping people and improving our lives, we are wisely using the gifts God gives us.

I believe that by doing my best to live in harmony with proper principles that my example and energy ripples out in the universe.  Each person living in this way creates a stronger universal energy for peace, kindness and good.

Time is so precious.  What am I doing today to create peace?
What can I do today to help others?
What is the best use of my time and resources?
What good can I do now?

By focusing our attention on kindness and peace we create that in our lives.
It is time to follow the principles of Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King.

 

“Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

 

 We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”

                                          Martin Luther King

 

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

                    
Martin Luther King, Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech

 

blessings,

    At times we’re so busy with the cares of this world that we lose our peace, but we must have peace in order to be happy. God says my peace I give to you. Recognize that peace is a gift form God. We need to find ourselves so that we can have that peace once again in our lives.
    Thanks for sharing Lee

    The lyrics “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me” has always brought tears to my eyes. The message is simple and yet so profound. If each one of us can set the intention to proceed through the day by approaching each person and carrying out each action in peace then we will add to the universal good So smile at the grumpy driver beside you, be patient with the cashier whose computer is not co-operating, hold the door open for the next person. Be at peace and go in peace.
    Thank you Lee for pointing out that it is not just the Mother Teresa type of peaceful movements that are needed. I love starting my day by reading your inspirations.

    Aren’t humans amazing? They kill wildlife – birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.
    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative – and fatal – health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.
    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.
    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.
    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and then call for Peace on Earth.

    “Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But, conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right.”
    ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

    Hi Csilla,
    Yes, we each can create peace in our lives every moment and every day.
    There is a great opportunity right now in Egypt for peace and proper principles and for a new direction in the Middle East. People must help each other and take care of each other and share the resources they are blessed with. We all must care and share.
