Peace Within Equals Peace On Earth...
I am reading a book titled "We Consciousness 33 Profound Truths for Inner and Outer Peace" by author Karen Noe.
She channels Dr. Wayne Dyer who is part of the "We Consciousness." I feel this book has come to me at just the right time as I would not have been ready for it during my own pilgrimage/walk. Within my own spiritual journey of re-membering who I/we really are I feel I have reached a point of "exhale." It feels like a little more breathing room than ever before. A sense of peace, if you will. I say "we" because I am you and you are me. We all come from Source/God and cannot be separate from one another. I can only paraphrase how the great Dr. Wayne Dyer put it. It is much like taking a cup of water and dipping it into the ocean. That cup of water retrieved would represent each of us in our earthly life as an individual.
The cup of water still contains every single element that the entire ocean is made up of so there is no difference in what is in the cup and what remains in the ocean.
Meaning, although we appear separate, we are all one as we came from the same source. Hope that makes sense! We are all children of God, and no one is any more valuable or different than the other. We may appear different in our physical vessels and have come to earth on different missions but at the core we are all the same. Whatever one does also affects the whole, that includes, the plant and animal kingdom as well. There is a ONENESS to All things.
Peace Pilgrim puts it this way:
"It does not matter what name you attach to it, but your consciousness must ascend to the point through which you view the universe with your God-centered nature. The feeling accompanying this experience is that of complete wholeness with the Universal Whole. One emerges into a euphoria of absolute unity with all life."
Now, having stated that it makes sense that indeed we must first come to a place of peace within our own god-self first and then extend that peace outwardly into the world.
Can you just imagine what the earth would be like if over seven billion people found/uncovered that peace. There would be no wars, fighting, hatred, jealousy or any discord. Just a life, a world/planet filled with peace and love for everyone and everything. God is that love and peace and you must become/remember that ass well to feel that full connection to him. We must align ourselves to our Creator and love ourselves first.
It is my belief/experience that what we do for ourselves we do for one another as well.
So, if we show ourselves love and transform our own life first, then that expands out to others and the planet. We are also energetically connected whether we know it or not. When we even "think" positive thoughts and raise our vibration, we are assisting others around us and even around the planet to raise theirs too. Then we all keep drawing positive people and circumstances to us and that is where the world slowly transforms. We as individuals are always looking for ways to change others or the world. We don't have to "fix" another person or go out and protest to see results. We just have to get quiet within ourselves and find that peace and love within, not externally.
Remember that our Creator/God IS love and peace and we as his children are love and peace as well (going back to the cup and ocean.)
We may have forgotten that, but many are now re-membering and waking up to that truth. As you keep moving on your path this will help sustain you from within understanding that we all are in this together affecting one another as a whole. I'm not only ready to "live" in peace but to "contribute" to that peace the best I can. Each and every one of us is valuable, important and able to individually find our peace so that we can collectively BE peace.
On that note, Karen poses a question and asks God "How may I serve?" Don't be fooled into thinking that you are insignificant and could not possibly make a difference. You/we are more powerful than we think!
Here is a prayer by Saint Francis that Karen included in her book:
"Lord make me and instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness. light;
Where there is sadness. joy;
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled, as to console;
To be understood, as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life."
May peace prevail as we all come into internal peace bringing about peace on earth during this most celebrated and auspicious time.
