I have a saying hanging on the wall which reads ‘TO BRING PEACE TO THE EARTH MAKE YOUR OWNLIFE PEACEFUL’. (it is not credited).
Firstly, the idea that my thoughts, words and actions affect more than just the people around me is one which hadn’t occurred to me. But … as usual it is LOVE which is the mainstay of PEACE.
Feeling PEACEFUL individually means not getting upset by other peoples’ words and actions, not taking them PERSONALLY and responding with LOVE.
So, if we all lived PEACEFUL lives in the sense of accepting what happens and NOT going over and over things in our minds we would be contributing to the peace in the world. After all, once something has happened it has happened and we cannot change it.
It is the sense of injustice, wanting to reclaim territory, the wish to prove ourselves etc etc which leads to anger and wars, whether the WAR is waged individually against our acquaintances or another nation!
AND it is our sense of self importance which often stops us being able to accept what has happened and therefore respond ANGRILY and NOT PEACEFULLY.
MAY WE ALL HAVE A PEACEFUL AND HAPPY DAY.
