Peace Begins with Me - Meditation Classes
We all breath the same air.
I recently watched a video of as Syrian toddler pulled alive from the rubble after Aleppo bombing. It was all I could to not scream from the hill tops, "Everyone please forgive! And then forgive again! If you can’t forgive ask that the person be blessed."
If I am holding anything against my neighbour then I am part of the rubble that almost suffocated that little baby.
When are we going to get it? Peace begins with me. We talk a lot these days about transparency. Can we be transparent in our thirst for peace?
If we are not at peace we can ask ourselves in meditation what can I do to bring about peace. "But I can’t meditate," you say. Do you worry? If you can focus on worry you can meditate. All you are doing is changing the focus to peace. And Peace is catchy. You get it, your spouse gets it, the dog lives it. It’s in the air and we all breathe the same air.
My father is the most peaceful person I know. Others may say he has no back bone. Peace does not look as powerful as war and it is not the absence of war nor is it the opposite. Peace is an innate part of our nature. It has no duality, nor is it a dichotomy.
When we were kids, we often said hello by holding up our peace fingers, “Hey, Peace man, Peace.” What happened to that? Even if we were being flippant, it was in ‘the air.’ Now we are embarrassed to look like an old hippie. Our so-called celebrity status is at stake. Lets take a risk, look foolish and believe in the power of peace. Let our peace be transparent and pass the peace. When we pass the peace we create more peace.
