Love, Peace and Harmony
Love, peace and harmony are beautiful words and bring warm feelings when we think of them. But how often do we get to experience them? With all the turmoil in the world, not very often! I used to be in a woman’s choral group and one of the songs we sang was “Let There Be Peace on Earth”. The first line says, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me”. Beautiful lyrics and wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all lived that way.
I once did a week long workshop and one of the things I addressed was negative thinking. In today’s fast pace living, we get so focused on responsibilities and getting everything done, we tend to become so negative about everyday life and many times aren’t even aware of this. One day during a week of this workshop, I had addressed negative thinking the day before and when we started the next morning, I had a lady in the front row tell me that she had found a way to stop her negative thinking. She said, “When I realize that I am thinking something negative, I just press my nose and eject what I’m thinking and change the thought to a positive one!” Of course, that brought on laughter from the whole group and started the day off right. We all agreed that positive thoughts bring us inner peace.
How we treat others in our life is so important! We don’t have to agree on everything to get along. We all have the right to our own beliefs and spiritual path. God’s infinite goodness is all around us and most of us are abundantly blessed. But do we show gratitude for all we have or do we focus on our fears and the negative in our lives?
If all of us could live with Divine love and peace in our heart and God’s spark in our soul, there would be peace on earth!
