A Plea For Peace That Needs To Be Heard

A friend sent me this message of peace. She received this email from someone who knew someone who said she received this anonymous message about peace. I read it and was deeply touched by the wisdom of this message.

I had to share it with you because even though it is anonymous it doesn’t mean it is in some way less important. As a matter of fact, I would say it is very important and worth your time to read it.

I Want Peace

I want peace. I want peace everywhere, all the time, for everyone. Even for the people who don't want peace.

I want love to win, to be stronger than war, stronger than hatred. Stronger than fear.

I want an end to the madness of harm we cause each other because I can't take it anymore. Numbness is not the way to cope with violence.  Numbness doesn't solve anything. And numbness only deadens the heart. It doesn't make anything okay. And it certainly doesn't stop the hurt. I don't want to be inured to violence.

I don't want children to be afraid

How To Make Contact With Those Who Have Passed On

I have been in contact with my Dad on various occasions since he passed on. There is nothing magical about this. It is really quite simple. Here is the way I open the channel for us to communicate:

First I find a quiet place and take a few minutes to relax. I find relaxing is easy to do just by paying attention to my breathing. As I breath consciously, I relax. After feeling myself breathe in and out for a few cycles of the breath, I am ready.

Next I enter into what I call my “soul.” My soul is the part of me that existed before this life and will continue after this life ends. The soul is able to communicate with all souls in bodies or beyond My soul is the place in me more expansive than my personality and life experiences. It is peaceful, loving and joyous, always waiting to guide my life.

My soul reaches out to my Dad’s soul and asks his soul to communicate with me. Then all I have to do is listen. This is a kind of listening that is a quiet, intuitive type. I listen and soon I hear his voice, which is light and freer than the heavier voice of the body.

Heart to Heart, Mind to Mind, People to People

The world of hearts and minds shape all the human experience. If both hearts and minds are open, then there are infinite possibilities in the world. If we can communicate with each other with an open mind and open heart we can find all the solutions we need for a better world.

If the mind or heart closes down humanity is limited by that closing. If both minds and hearts close down we are in trouble as a society. All the problems of the world are caused from closed minds and the lost of compassion.

Take A Walk On The Wild Side

The worst curse to befall anyone is stagnation, the quiet desperation that comes out of a need for conformity.”  Deepak Chopra

I came upon this quote and for a moment felt deeply for all the suffering that comes from ignoring what is right for us and instead managing our lives in the hope of securing the approval of others.

You are not here to conform, you are here to express who you are.
