I Think… Living in a More Peaceful World


Our greatest enemy is not who we think it is; it is our lack of understanding and awareness about ourselves and who we really are, it is always easier to look out there and blame someone else.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if we were more concerned about others than our own selfish desires.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if we honored the chosen path of those we do not understand.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if our greed did not exceed our love for nature.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if we loved diversity more than sameness.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if our energy was used to uplift those around us and not to control or tear them down.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if we did not believe we were better than those who are different from us or suffering.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if we lived in love more than fear.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if we recognized that the oneness of our world and our connection to those around us is more important than creating separation, building walls or looking for reasons to distance ourselves from others no matter who they are.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if we spent as much time understanding ourselves as we did complaining about what others do that we do not like or understand.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if we led with our hearts instead of our heads and wallets.

I think we would be able to live in this world more peaceably if those in power always put everyone else’s highest good before their own.

We will never inhabit a peaceful world, mind or body if we do not bring awareness to our thoughts and actions. We must learn to let go of the past and stop continually trying to hold onto beliefs and ideas that were created by our conditioning. Understand that you cannot see this conditioning without bringing awareness to your thoughts and actions, and this will only happen through paying attention.

What can you do today to make this a more peaceful world to live in? Remember, the world will never be more peaceful than it is now if we all do not take responsibility for our own inner peace. Because when we become more peaceful, the people around us and the world become more peaceful.

What action can you take today to let go of the past, become more peaceful, and bring more joy, compassion, empathy, and love instead of anger, worry, fear and hate into the world?
