As we begin the journey toward world peace let us say one simple prayer: May I look for and find what we have in common rather than concentrate on what makes us different. Remember that what you can picture in your mind, you can cause to happen with a “little help from your friends.” The universe is waiting to help you.
The picture of peace that you envision may be altogether different than your neighbor’s vision. Here is the hard part. Your neighbor is just as entitled to their vision as you are to yours.
When the world began, it began with certain laws of Nature. The greatest law is the law of harmony. When we listen to beautiful four-part harmony and hear how it blends together, we know that those who are singing had to practice. First, they each practiced alone, and, then, when they each knew their own part, they put the four parts together and recorded it. Life is like that. Things work better when we pull together for a common cause. Let us make Peace our cause, and harmony our mission.
I’ll let you in on a big SECRET. The more you can stay in a state of peace and harmony, the more likely you are to find prosperity.
Darkness is only the absence of light. Discrimination and hate are just the absence of education. On our journey to peace on earth, we will establish universal education for all children, male and female, in all corners of the world. To establish peace, we must first start with our own hearts, souls, and minds. Next we must make peace with our personal family and friends. No more domestic violence. Quit wasting energy on blame, just keep searching until you are able to get it fixed.
At one point in time I worked for IBM in the USA. The man who started IBM was Thomas Watson and he had a saying: “If you see a problem and do nothing to resolve it, you become part of the problem.”
Give your love freely for it is the most renewable of resources. Remember, there are many forms of love. A little thought up front may save a broken heart. May God, Allah, and the universe bless you with Peace Profound.
Welcome to PeaceConsciousness.org
PeaceConsciousness.org is an online e-zine. This publication provides both a forum for exchanging ideas related to peace, and for suggesting means, at all levels, to use in resolving differences between individuals, groups, nations, or even species. We will learn not only where we have common ground, but also learn to celebrate our differences, because those differences provide richness, diversity, and a continual flow of new ideas for us to consider.
