HOW PEACE CAME TO THE WORLD
A World In Strife
War had waged in the world for thousands of years. Violence and crime were rampant, the people lived in terror.
No matter what they tried as groups or individuals, nothing changed. Anti-war protests, greater law enforcement, petitions, rallies, political pressure, sanctions - nothing produced the desired effect.
Nobody wanted war and violence, but the governments of the world seemed determined that they should happen. Terrorist extremists had an ever tightening hold on communities, countries and continents.
Television, radio and newspapers bombarded homes every day with horrific and graphic news of yet more disasters, atrocities and deaths. As if it was not bad enough that these things had occurred, innocent families were forced to relive them again, and again and again.
A NEW Insight
Then one day, a group of people decided to change their mind.
Growing weary of fear, terror, war and violence, they realised that they could no longer rely on politics and economics to bring peace. The recognised that no amount of anti-war rallies or petitions could bring the harmony they sought, so they made a decision.
They decided to create peace for themselves.
These people knew that we choose our experiences and literally create our lives through the thoughts and feelings which we consistently entertain.
So, they simply chose to spend more time focussing on thoughts of peace and love.
Starting small at first, they picked an activity they loved, and whilst practising it, they noticed and enjoyed the feeling of peace that filled their being.
Then, when that feeling was as complete and powerful as it could be in the moment, they mentally sent it out around the world, literally showering the universe with love, harmony, security, protection - with peace.
A Positive Outcome
Before long, this small exercise in disciplined thought and feeling began to have an effect. These people felt better. They were calmer and less stressed for longer and loner periods. They started to prefer this time to watching the news, or violent television shows, or joining in gossip and complaining conversations about the horrors of life. They experienced more joy and began to see the world in a whole new light.
Friends, relatives and neighbours noticed the difference in them and were inspired to follow their lead. Soon whole communities shared this simple daily practise, using their favourite pastimes to enjoy the sensation of complete peace, and send it out into the world.
The word spread. More and more people took up this new habit, enjoying the opportunity to have a brief moment of peace in their busy day, and generous enough to send it out into the world.
A Change For The Better
Miraculous things started to happen.
Slowly, communities noticed that they were experiencing less crime and violence. Populations were growing more prosperous, families were stronger; relationships more loving, and individuals more happy.
