Peace, how bad do you want it?

I write a lot about peace because it serves as such a powerful springboard for joy, gratitude, and love: qualities of humanity that touch the realm of the Divine and what lies beyond. And we all have experienced peace, it’s easy enough to reach, it’s often just an awareness shift away.

So if you still watch the news (something I don’t recommend – I stopped doing years ago because it was negatively affecting my internal foundation of peace which I value greater than being ‘in the know’ – but I get many people are still addicted to that need to be inundated with information) or are aware of the level of violence in the world, I hope you’ll appreciate that this month I’ll be posting primarily about peace movements through social media. Folks who are stepping up, not to fight against violence and conflict – but to transform it by putting their attention, creativity and voice to the power of peace.

Let’s start with a video by musician Emmanuel Jal of Sudan. If these beautiful people can find their foundation to step up for peace, there must be something in your life that can do the same for you. Do not go another day without recognizing it.

  1. “So if you still watch the news (something I don’t recommend – I stopped doing years ago because it was negatively affecting my internal foundation of peace which I value greater than being ‘in the know’” – I warm very deeply to this. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for your note Don! Indeed, I haven’t watched the news in years, and feel like such a more optimist, outgoing, friendly person because of it. Glad you resonate!
