It has come to me that perhaps the fastest way to PEACE is not by looking for PEACE, that it is LIVING IN HARMONY!! World PEACE is a very overwhelming thing to create. In order to have PEACE in the world, each and every person must first have PEACE within their own heart. If you have one grain of anger, hate, frustration, to name just a few, then you do not have total PEACE within you, and we can not experience World PEACE until EVERYONE has only PEACE within them.
if we still have some of those issues (anger, hate, frustration, envy,
etc.) that I know we are all working at removing from our lives, we can
still choose to LIVE IN HARMONY with those around us, and choose to not
spend time with those that bring out that other stuff. Even if we spend
time with them and do not feel totally loving and peaceful towards
them, we can still choose to spend the time together HARMONIOUSLY! (For
example: some things my mother says to me, so ways
she treats me, hurt me... yet I choose to not fight, to just let it
go.... to see it as her issues, and to get along rather than argue....
Harmony. There are so many other ways my 89 year old mom is wonderful,
so I can choose to focus on them.)
I believe that if I choose
to live in HARMONY with someone I do not know well or understand his or
her ways (i.e., perhaps a store clerk of a different color, nationality,
religious belief, etc.) then I put out HARMONY vibrations into the
world, even though I may not get along with my sister, for example. By
practicing HARMONY with all I meet, with all I live near, perhaps one
day I can enjoy HARMONY with those I may choose to remove from my life
at this time.... and by LIVING A LIFE OF HARMONY, I believe I help to
create WORLD PEACE!!
