Dear brothers and sisters around the world,
I recently heard someone remind me of something I once said to them and that is: “We can’t fight for Peace in the World.”
Fight and Peace don’t even belong in the same sentence. When we fight we become the very war that we are trying to stop. Because, we can only achieve Peace by ceasing all types of wars.
These can be wars within ourselves; with our constant insecurities, doubts and fears. They can be wars with neighbours over an overgrown plant. They can be wars against multi national corporations that are poisoning our planet and our minds. These can be destructive wars where men, women, children and animals die.
You see when we strip away the ego, and the labels we attach ourselves so rigidly to, there are no nationalities, no possessions, no anything and take away the physical body, we are all exactly the same beings of energy.
The only difference between us, as energetic beings, is the frequency we vibrate at. Perhaps this is why there is so much misunderstanding in the world. If we all did our best to try and reach another person’s vibrational energy, while still keeping our own intact, we would learn to, temporarily, understand each other. In other words, we would adapt to each other.
If we practiced this capacity of adaptation every day, over a period of time it would become second nature. When something is second nature, it comes naturally; without even trying. Eventually, Peace would prevail automatically because we would all make an effort to understand each other.
Peace comes from seeds of Love, Kindness and Compassion (as His Holiness the Dalai Lama quite rightfully says.) If we are busy loving, there will be no fighting. Our energy will be too busy creating instead of destructing.
But, it takes one person to make the first move in the attempt to understand. It takes one person to listen. It takes one person to apologise and one person to adapt their frequency. This is placing others first. In doing so, we will ultimately reap great rewards.
The Divine blesses us, and our lives, with exactly what we plant in the seeds of our actions in the world. If you fight you will be fought, if you love you will be loved. Only in Love can we create Peace.
