PEACE

Posted on June 16, 2021 ยท Posted in Blog, General, Memo Plus Gold, Personal

Peace is a state of non-suffering as well as a celebration of life. We now know from many spiritual teachers that we can make a choice to live in peace within our own hearts, that we can actually choose not to suffer and choose instead to live in gratitude and love. Not only that, but we are also learning that finding and claiming that peace within us is essential to creating a world at peace. Because all of life is interconnected, our fear, hatred, and anger decrease the peace in the world, whereas our love, joy, and gratitude increase the peace.

Why is peace important? Without it, the destructive tendencies of our species will continue to inch us closer to catastrophe. The Gulf oil spill is but one example. But we human beings, in our true essence, are capable of the most glorious and uplifting actions. We have the potential to create a world at peace and become what you would call non-violent humans.

But is peace only important to human beings? And can we end wars and human suffering without ending the suffering of billions of animals who die daily at the hands of people for food, skins, useless experiments, entertainment, and other forms of domination? These violent and brutal actions must stop if we are to create a non-violent world. Until man extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find ultimate peace. We are connected, not just to each other, but to all of life. The animals and the natural world have much to teach us about peace, silence, being, and celebrating life. We are immensely capable of creating a new, beautiful and non-violent world for all who live here. May peace reign in our hearts and in our world for all beings everywhere.

Peace is the desire of every beating heart. Peace is the hope of every nation, the promise of every politician, the pulse of every religious tradition, the goal of every prayer. Peace is the bold, courageous and ultimate response to the notion that violence provides any viable solution for the conflicts of our world. Where war destroys and tears apart, peace builds, strengthens, and restores. At the same time, peace is personal, for each of us long for security and tranquility in the face of the troubles, anxiety, and chaos that often touch our lives.

Within our faith communities, peace speaks of a right relationship with God, and with our neighbours, and with the whole of creation. The idea of peace begins when God calls order out of the chaos at creation, and it continues as God brings order to the chaos of our lives. Peace is present in every story of reconciliation; reconciliation with the God, reconciliation with our brother or sister, reconciliation with our enemy. Peace nurtures the hope of forgiveness, community, and reunion with those with whom we share this beautiful planet.
