For me, the question has always been: Will we ever have peace in the world? We keep thinking that if we fight what we don’t like about another’s point of view we will achieve peace. Peaceful protesting certainly has its place in a democracy. We stand up and are counted only to become the ones who others want to fight. There is more work to do. If we are to succeed in our protest we need to open up our point of view to allow others to join us. We need to grow, to create a larger picture of our situation.
It does not appear simple but it can be.
Peace can come from acknowledging peace. You can change the world by changing your limited views. You can change the world by leaving the negative thoughts that enslave you toward negative action of others to new thoughts of inclusion. Two negatives actions seldom are the reason for a positive outcome. Somehow we have forgotten to apply this to our life.
Leaving Depression and Disappointment Behind
Bad things may have happened to you making you feel like a victim and wanting to tell people over and over the story of how you have been hurt, troubled, victimized. Each time you retell your sad story that shocked and ruined your life, you begin to create a cycle of new experiences that will mirror the ones you already have and for all accounts, seem be attracting. Let go of the disappointments. Each time you find yourself talking about how unfair the government is or the corporations are, you attract more inequalities.
Try hard to create conversations with others that do not include your sadness or your anger. Focus daily on the the moments of achievement. Focus on an activity that will change your thoughts to those that bring peace and happiness to you and those around you. As you turn your thoughts, conversations and actions toward whatever brings you happiness, you will find more, and more situations that are happy to fill your days. It is simple. Take the first step!
Don’t give up. You can demonstrate, actualize, peace in this world.
