Today, you can help World Peace by your CHOICE of thoughts.  Are you in?  Our thoughts are heard by our nervous systems, and low-energy or low-vibration thoughts, such as pessimism, resentment, and anger, literally drag us down.  On the other hand, high-level or high-vibration thoughts, such as optimism, confidence, and gratitude, literally lift our energy.  Plus, others receive the communication of our moods and energy levels without our having to verbalize about them.   So we actually strengthen or weaken others with our CHOICE of thoughts.  Paul, in his letter to the Phillipians, made this point powerfully:

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things…and the God of Peace will be with you.”

-Phil 4:8-9

 

Here is AGNT’s contemplation for SNV Day 50:

 DAY 50 Mar. 20: The thought for today is CHOICE.  Be aware of any jokes or remarks that show disrespect toward ethnic groups, women or men, classes of people, religious groups, gays or lesbians.  By being considerate of every person’s dignity and by choosing not to participate in disrespectful communication, I am contributing to a nonviolent society.

“The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day.  The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become.  Your integrity is your destiny– it is the light that guides your way.”

Heraclitus

Do you think the statement “We always have a choice” is true?  Do you ever think that you don’t have a choice?  Do you ever think you must be violent?  Can you always choose nonviolence?

Today:  I will write about the choices I face throughout the day and on how they translate my commitment to nonviolence into my thoughts, words and actions.

Peaceful People: Day 61 of Season for NonViolence (SNV): Peace [Within]

Peace Within, nonviolence, SNV,AGNT, peaceToday, we are invited to consider the quality of personal PEACE.  We need to nurture our PEACE within, in place of humoring negative thoughts or nurturing agitation.  Have you ever noticed that you react differently to the same events, depending on whether you are very relaxed and feel loved, versus when you are tense and under pressure?  If the dog chews up a favorite shoe of yours, under one set of conditions, you may laugh and find that cute.  If you are loaded with tension, fear, or anger, the dog chewing up a favorite shoe may “cause you to blow up”.  If you blow up, was it really the dog’s actions that caused you to react that way?  No.  It was about you.  So today, you can be a peacemaker by getting in touch with your PEACE within.  Then your PEACE will multiply outward and help create World PEACE.  This is why I wrote the book, Peace Within:  Your Peaceful Inner Core (http://tinyurl.com/abd47jr ).

Here, then, is AGNT’s meditation for Day 61 of the SNV:

DAY 61 Mar. 31: The thought for today is PEACE.  “Practice watering seeds of joy and peace and not just seeds of anger and violence, and the elements of war in all of us will be transformed,” says Thich Nhat Hanh.   You water seeds of anger and violence by deciding to stay angry and act violently.  You water seeds of joy and peace by deciding to be peaceful, no matter what is happening to you.  PEACE  does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work.  It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart, and then respond in a nonviolent way.

“Mankind must remember that peace is not God’s gift to his creatures; peace is our gift to each other.”   –Elie Wiesel

Today:  I choose to meet each experience with an intention for peace.  I will be aware of any feelings of anger or irritation and replace the feeling with calm.  I envision any areas of unrest transformed into safe havens for all people.  I see beyond conflict and discord to the truth: peace is everywhere present and active.
