“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”
The complete practice of Peace on Earth is more than a dreamer’s vision of what could be. It is the future for the evolution of the planet and an intricate and necessary step in our soul’s existence. So many changes have been taking place lately, accelerating the ascension with brilliant clarity. Can everyone see it? Not yet! But it is no longer
A slow and steady process, it is a rapidly advancing collective awakening with great momentum and purpose. Peace is at the center of the realization that in order for any of us to survive as a culture of people, we have to ultimately learn to coexist, not dominate.
“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
Shouldn’t this be easier? Not at this stage of our Awakening, but the great moments of joy experienced will soon out shadow the times of great pain and anxiety in the past. You climb the mountain, breathe in the air and look around at the remarkable view. After a short while, your feet lift off the ground from the incredible energy and you hold out your hand to help the soul who is but a single step behind you. The peace inside you creates the open door to the peace already living inside of them and they in turn do the same. Accepting each other as you are and respecting each others journey as an opportunity to create the peace we were all meant to live in. How each of us arrives there is not the point, only that we do.
“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.”
Many of us grew up in families where peace could be a constant struggle to obtain and we watched in the media the wars being waged all over the World. We didn’t have a good example of peace among people which didn’t lead to a lot of hope that it was possible. As adults we had to seek out ways to find that peace inside which resonated for us. That is why we have also learned to be so thankful for those who came before, who weren’t afraid to speak the truth and even paid with their lives. Their words made sense and their hope gave us hope even if we didn’t understand just how it could happen, only that it could.
“If someone thinks that love and peace is a cliché that must have been left behind in the Sixties, that's his problem. Love and peace are eternal.”
As the World awakens to manifest the concepts of ultimate healing and communication, we realize this is no illusion or future event. It is happening now. We can evolve into a society filled with sparkling shining peace. If I have felt it in the core of my own soul, then I know it is possible for everyone to feel. And I have felt it countless times.
“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.” John Lennon
Your soul has been through many lessons, lives and journeys. Practicing peace as a way of life brings about a connection that helps to pour in the insights and information your guides are bringing you. An instant knowing and knowledge you will keep and remember when it’s needed. Our individual purpose is part of a much larger collective consciousness working together to heal and ascend.
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
There is a true peace brought about by many different practices and beliefs as we connect to the Higher Sources available to us. Guides, Angels, Ascended Masters and beautiful souls who wish to assist us all here on Earth in our transitions. Through meditation, prayer, belief, life lessons, forgiveness, acceptance, compassion and all the soul work our hearts are tested with, we are learning peace. And ultimately, peace will win.
“Peace is its own reward.”
