I’ve always been touched by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder’s piece of music – ‘Ebony and Ivory’. Each time I listen, I get goose bumps!
I truly believe we all want to live in harmony, so, what stops us from living in harmony with one another? At this moment in time, there is much fear and conflict in our world.
Wisdom teaches us that, to be the change we want to see in the world, we need to change our self first. If we want to live in a world of harmony, we need to find harmony within our self first – harmony within our heart. To do that, my wise and loving mentor once suggested that we need to find the piece that brings us peace.
How many of us have some form of inner conflict? Different energies battling with one another, one wanting this another wanting that; a mental war between what we ‘should’ do and what we ‘want’ to do; different needs; opposing emotions.
What stops you from having peace in your heart? A belief, an attachment, a habit that doesn’t serve you, a judgement of an aspect of your personality…? How can you accept the light and shadow within you?
We are here to celebrate life, each day is a gift, so let’s build a bridge and enJOY life! What do you need to do to live in acceptance and with tolerance? How can you change your thinking so that you cultivate a loving mind?
