With Christmas, Hannukah and Kwanza all occurring around the same time of year, this is a time when Peace and Goodwill is often thought about and much talked about – and something some people actually do. This time of year actually has the ability to change a person’s heart – how they feel about something – because for a brief moment in time, their only focus is on doing something to help someone else – true unconditional love.
Have you ever taken the time to ask yourself what is PEACE? and What does it mean? How can one person make a change in the world that actually affects the lives of other people in a positive way?
Peace is a State of Being. It begins in the mind and then resonates out around you. If you change your mindset, you change what energy you emit. Peace, Joy and Unconditional Love are three of the highest energy vibrations. Like sound, energy resonates and entrains other energy flow patterns. Have you ever noticed how someone’s good mood ends up rubbing off on others? Or someone in a really bad mood brings in a flood of negative energy with them? That is simple energy entrainment.
A state of Peace will have the same effect on the people around you. This is one way you can spread Peace throughout the world. As each and everyone of us takes up the Peace mindset and holds that thought pattern every day, we can slowly begin to affect change in the world around us, in people’s mindset and attitude, because they will inherently want to reflect back the energy they are receiving. It’s a universal law, it just IS.
It is possible to remain in a Peaceful State of Being despite events that occur on a day-to-day basis. It lies in your mental attitude in how you decide to react and respond to those situations. Responding to a situation with a negative attitude is a learned behavior. And just as you learned how to respond negatively, you can change your response and learn how to respond positively. Many people don’t want to change. Change can feel difficult because it requires one to think differently, feel differently, respond differently, react differently. After all, status quo is easy; it doesn’t require any effort. But does anything that requires no effort really have any value at all?
Growth requires stretching and changing. If there is no growth, there is stagnation and death. So change is good and actually part of what we should be doing in the first place. Change is part of growing, and growing is an ongoing, never ending process. We were created to grow up into the fullness of the Source from which we were created. Just as a small child grows up to resemble his or her physical parents, we are to continue to grow spiritually to resemble our spiritual parents. What develops along the way is character. Your character is the only thing you can ever take with you anywhere – now in your present form and later in your spiritual form. You can’t take your car, your house, your money or any other physical possessions with you – but you can and do take your character. This is really your only true treasure. What is the quality and value of your character?
If you’re wondering how to move yourself into a Peaceful State of Being, you can start by looking at the examples of those who have already walked the path before you. One example is a remarkable woman by the name of Mildred Norman Ryder. Ms. Ryder became known as the Peace Pilgrim when in her mid-40’s she aligned with her purpose of being and spent the next 28 years of her life promoting Peace all across the USA. You can learn more about Ms. Ryder’s story at www.peacepilgrim.org. Here is a shining example of the affect just one person can have in the world. Each life is a like a pebble cast into the sea. As each cast pebble sends out ripples ever widening, always moving outwards though less perceptible with distance, each life has a ripple effect on every other life.
Two leaders in energy work have begun global peace programs. One is Masaru Emoto. Mr. Emoto has been doing work on energy and water crystals for over 20 years. In 2005, he started the Emoto Peace Project. Mr. Emoto’s work with water crystals shows that the most beautiful and perfect water crystals are formed when given the energy of unconditional love. These water crystals are perfect star tetrahedra and create metatron’s cube energy patterns. All of Mr. Emoto’s work is copyrighted and trademarked, please do not copy images.
On November 7, 2008, at the Alliance for a New Humanity Forum in Barcelona, Deepak Chopra announced to the 500 attendees of that conference that he had taken a vow for non-violence in thought, speech and action. This has since become a global movement. A goal was set to mobilize 100 million people to make a commitment of peaceful thought and nonviolence. If this resonates with you, go to http://www.itakethevow.com to learn more on how you can become a part of this global movement.
Every person ever born, has a mother, father, sister, brother, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins. Every person ever born breathes air to exist and has blood flowing their veins, if they get cut or injured, they bleed and hurt. Every person is really the same – and what happens to one, happens to all. Extend that around you to your environment – the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom, and even the insect kingdom. Everything that exists, even rock and air, has an effect on everything else that exists. Everything comes from energy and returns to energy, and no thing is any different from any other.
The next time an angry, irritable or harsh attitude starts to rise up in response to a situation, catch yourself and ask yourself does the situation really warrant any energy given to it at all? Step back from the situation and look at it as an observer. You will begin to see situations in a new light. It will become easier, little by little, to remain in a Peaceful State of Being.
