It is the day AFTER the election for President of the United States. Where there should be Peace, there is strife, fear, boastful pride, recrimination, blame and a broken sense of Peace. The United States which has for many years worked so hard to position itself as the very symbol of Peace and unity is in the midst of an internal war. How did we come to this place, it matters little. How we escape from this place matters much.
PEACE begins at home. Peace begins with the individual. To rescue our sense of Peace we must step away from all of the actions and emotions that are the very antithesis of Peace. For The United States to regain its worldwide symbolism as a peacemaker, it must become peaceful within itself. Where there is no Peace there is no freedom for anyone because there will always be a wave of resentment flowing as an under current.
None of us can resolve what has been brewing for months on a national scale but we can each resolve it within ourselves and within our homes. Declare yourself to be peaceful and accepting. Declare your home to be a refuge of Peace. Refuse to discuss unrest. Refuse to allow media in your home that glorifies unrest. See Peace and you will find it. If it does not feel like Peace, it is not Peace.
I will abandon my usual request for this installment because it is difficult to envision world Peace until we have embraced home Peace. Start with the things in your immediate control – yourself; your home.
Wishing you Peace and Love!
