When you look at the world today from a big picture perspective, what do you see? What do you think about that? How do you feel?
I see darkness, a world in turmoil. I see old political and financial systems crumbling, people clamouring for change. I see anger, blaming, complaining, judgment. I see rage, shame, hate, fear.
It’s easy to fall into the negativity of it all, to have our emotions triggered by the media and the drama around us. There are wonderful things happening too – we just don’t hear about them so much. There is opportunity – opportunity for new ways, for collaboration, for community.
What can we do as individuals? I believe that everyone on this planet at heart wants to live in harmony and peace. How can we assist in bringing this about? A wise woman, my mentor, says ‘If it’s to be, it begins with me’!
On a physical level, what practical action can we take in our everyday life? We can share uplifting stories, make people smile, find simple ways to bring light into our lives each day, there are many ways. Each time we smile, for example, our energy lights up like a sun. Each time we blame or complain, our energy becomes dense.
If you’d like, you can join this group to do a meditation for peace and harmony on the 21 st of each month at either 6am or 6 pm wherever you are in the world. It takes only 6 minutes, it’s easy to do. Think of the impact….You will also be invited to other meditations ..at the time of the equinox and solstice. You can share this link with others who you feel this will speak to.
Of course, if we want to live in harmony and peace, first we need to find harmony and peace within our self. We need to look at all the facets of who we are, including the darkness within our self – acknowledge, accept it, look at what it’s teaching us so we can include it.
When we love who we are and focus on our strengths, we can then move ahead in balance.
