World Peace Day

International Day of Peace.

Today, September 21st, is the International Day of Peace.
A day dedicated to focus on Peace.

  • We can hope that kindness will lead the way
  • We can pray that the world become a better place
  • We can preach that we should love and respect other beings

It’s great that we all have good intentions and share a common desire.

How is it working out so far?

Peace is created every day by all of us individually.

  • Lead the way with kindness
  • Become an even better person
  • Love and respect yourself and all other beings no matter what. Even when you disagree.
  • Practice feeling peaceful intentionally every day

Don’t wait for peace to happen in the outer world
Create peace in your own inner world every day.

Make every day world peace day.

Peace to all.

Last night I had a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner with friends. I am thankful for my friends being there with me.

The beautiful thing about the evening was that I felt so much love. All of my friends were obviously feeling secure and safe, knowing that they are all loved. Knowing that they are accepted for who they are. No pretences, no judgements, just fun, laughter, genuine interest and compassion.

A microcosm of the world at large.

I need to see that in my world, make it all that I see. Feeling safe and secure, feeling loved and accepted. No judgements, lots of compassion and understanding.

What the world needs today is to be thankful for the love that is there. Focus on the love that is everywhere.

Seeing only hate and fear is a lie. Looking at the love and feeling free of fear is not sticking your head in the sand,...
