a wild mind won’t find a peaceful place

B4Peace October: This month’s Peace Challenge – a Dream of Peace, is kind of aborted before it’s started. All apologies.

I have the most chaotically un-peaceful mind just now, which doesn’t even want to sit still, let alone watch the shallow breathing that’s going on.

insomnia

My uncontrolled mind just wants to sleep, which it can’t; or watch random movie trailers on You Tube.
(and I know I’m not the only one.)
Yup. Failing to find oblivion and desperate for release, my mind is scrabbling around for whatever easy and vacuous distraction it can find.
Anything but the tears/depression/anxiety/hopeless internal rage. And did I mention the tears?

Perverse isn’t it?
My agitated mind doesn’t even want peace!
I do, I want to sit quietly, being peace. I’m missing that blissful state of mind.

** I’m trying to count my breaths, which does seem to help :~)

My Dream of Peaceful Place

 So I think that’s what my Dream of a Peaceful World would be like.
It would be a world where everybody genuinely wanted peace, and everyone knew how to get it.
And could!

* Where the power hungry destroying our planet, and the discontented wasting their time surfing online, were equally rich in inner wisdom.
✿ڿڰۣ

Then naturally, beauty and order would prevail.
And the world would be a peaceful place.

 The Universe is abundant. There is quite enough time, space, food, water and resources for us all.
* This is scientific fact as well
So there’s no reason for anybody to go short; and certainly no good reason for anyone else to think that they should.

 All beings would be regarded as equal, whatever their age, gender, race, belief system or species.
(The species thing is important. We can’t have real peace if behind closed doors or across the world, others are screaming out in pain, just not in our language.)

Where everyone is authentic to themselves and others.
There’s no point in deceit, so why do it?
Just be honest with yourself and others, and wish sincerely for their happiness.
Much better.

“Whatever you do in this world,
always be true to yourself.”

in fact…

all U need is love

all we need is love

Quotes for Peace on Earth and Beyond

Bullying Prevention banner˚˙❤.¸¸.✧

“Love is the creative force of the Universe.
It is the fabric of all.
It is the essence of all.”

― Ashar, Pleiades. Channelled by Dawn Henderson in Starspeak

“Only by creating peace within our own mind and helping others to do the same can we hope to achieve peace in this world.”

“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible. We all wish for world peace, but world peace will never be acheived unless we first establish peace within our own minds. We can send so-called ‘peacekeeping forces’ into areas of conflict, but peace cannot be oppossed from the outside with guns.”

― Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, from Modern Buddhism (link in right border)
This is one of my favourite quotes, because it brings the responsibility right back home to us.

“WWIII will be an interplanetary war”

(General Douglas MacArthur 1955, in his last speech to Congress, quoted by Dr. Stephen Greer).

Which seems like a bit of a jump from quotes on love n’peace; but holding the opposite minds of dislike and anger can easily become a slippery slope.
Isn’t this already a reality on this world?

The next world war will not started by aliens, (who aren’t at all hostile) but those who govern the Earth (who mostly are).
But whoever the governors are; hostilities only ever commence if people are numbed enough to believe their lies and follow their orders.

arms 4 war

In the perfect world, arms would only be used for hugs

And no war of any kind can happen if we, the people, reach out to each other with peaceful and loving minds instead.
Actions of loving kindness have a ripple effect that send energetic waves throughout the cosmos.
There is a power in this that can only come from love; because love is the fabric of the universe.
