Peace on Earth Begins at Home

The pathway to a solution is to first acknowledge there’s a problem.  When something is not going smoothly in our lives, it’s human nature to look outside ourselves to see what’s wrong and what (or who) needs fixing.  But when we look inside ourselves, more often than not, the solution lies there. While some of our challenges appear to be external, often they are consequences of our  thoughts, belief systems, and energy fields.  
    Find your peaceful place.  It can be the front step, a park bench,  or sitting in the bathroom with the door closed and lights out. You don’t have to check into an ashram or monestary.  This isn’t fancy meditation. Do put your cellphone or mobile device in another place.  We are so one with them that the act of physically disconnecting is a symbolic message to yourself.  Our devices once belonged to us.  We have come to belong to them, ensuring that we are seldom alone with ourselves.  The quietude is a noisy place where your thoughts flit around like flies at a picnic.  Listen to them.  Then swat them away.  Listen to your breathing.  Relax your body.  At first you may feel weird, sitting on the step alone.  Wondering if someone sees you.  So you anticipate a dialogue:  “What are you doing?” they might ask.  “Oh, just thinking…” you might answer.  But truthfully what you want is a little time not thinking.  Just being.
     I am filled with gratitude for brief moments of stillness and inner quiet.  Like early morning walks through my soul, I can sense a deeper me coming from a more peaceful place.

The picture above is peaceful, meaningful and inspiring. I will repeat the affirmation in a still and quiet place, that will become my refuge. I long to unplug from this hectic, toxic world even if for a brief minute. Thank you for this blog and your thoughts.

Beautifully written and very important to be reminded that peace does begin at home and we have to be the ones to seek it.
