Meditate to Nurture Peace
If you could do one activity to nurture peace in yourself and on our planet what would it be? The answer is meditate. Just look at the examples given by those who've come before us. Mahatma Ghandi first comes to my mind. I see him sitting on a veranda spinning thread and feel the emanation of his peace, even from that thought. That's how powerful thought waves are. And thought aligned with the highest good of peace for all is the most powerful, a transmitter sending an unbroken beacon in radiant waves, in all directions.
By meditating with sincere thoughts of love and care for others we are mentally sending love and care to others. We receive one another's thoughts, so, to nurture peace send thoughts of peace.
I think of the sparklers we wave in our hands on Independence Day, and this is the kind of light I see carrying bursts of peace. Each spark lighting up the night carries a message of peace, and for peace to continue. It see light as a symbol used for carrying the message of universal peace.
For example, our sun lights all on our planet without discrimination. All plants receive its light to create food, people use its light for warmth and to see the world. We all depend on the sun. And, we depend on being peaceful mentally, and acting in the world peacefully to maintain harmony on our planet.
If you are having trouble being peaceful, sit in a meditation and go deeply within to your core of peace. Feel your breathing slow down and become regular and rhythmic. This is the experience to take from meditation into the world to promote peace. Be an example in your family and with all you have contact with during the day. Peace is practical. Peace is the practical means to create a harmonious world for everyone. Let peace begin with yourself in meditation, and radiate peace through your actions to the world.
