“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 are the first steps to consciously creating peace. We first must become peaceful within ourselves and in our outward behavior to others and life.
How am I creating peace in my life?
Am I a peaceful person?
How do I treat myself and others?
There are many ways we can contribute to the world we live in. The simplest way is to start with the people in our lives, the people we interact most with daily. Every day we have choices of how to respond to people and situations that create either peace or more fighting.
Peace and harmony are a function of unconditional love and caring.
War, fighting, control, hatred and anger are a function of the ego and fear.
Each of us has a choice of how to live our life 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.
The answer lies within and meditation is a powerful tool to self-realization, peace and enlightenment.
By doing our best to live in harmony with proper principles, our example and energy ripples out in the universe. Each person living in this way creates a stronger universal energy for peace, kindness and good.
By focusing our attention on kindness and peace we create this in our lives.
“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.”
