Peace Affirmation: “Peace comes to my world one person at a time beginning with me!”

It is my firm belief that 99% of the people who live on this planet get up every morning and have a desire to live in a peaceful world. They are not interested in struggle, strife, or violence. They want to live their lives, raise their children, and enjoy the richness of community.

The problem that humanity faces is knowing how to get there. Where does this peaceful world emerge? How does it overcome centuries of hatred, constant advertiser pandering to selfishness, and greedy hearts? How do the great faiths and philosophies learn to share this planet together?

S.N. Goenka is one of the great teachers of the Buddhist tradition of Vipassana – “Insight meditation”. His message of non-sectarianism and universality is a beginning to the goals we all seek. Following is a brief excerpt from a speech he gave at a U.N. conference back in 2000. He speaks eloquently of the birthplace of peace in our world.

“Conversion,” Goenka says, “should be from the impurity of the mind to purity of the mind.”

Roadblocks are simply shortcuts to something better than I had planned.

When you hit a “roadblock” in your life…stop…wait. Often roadblocks are viewed as something negative. We don’t like our plans to be foiled and it can be pretty frustrating. However, if we can avoid the initial negative reaction, we may find that the “roadblock” is in fact a gateway to something better than we had planned.

Sometimes the things we initially view as “roadblocks” – because they interfere with our plans – are actually possibilities we had not even considered.

Today when something seems to be interfering with your plans try looking for the opportunity in it. You may find that “roadblocks” can transform into gold mines.

Peace…

Return to Innoncence – Enigma – The Affirmation Spot for Friday July 31, 2009

I first experienced (and it always an experience) Enigma’s powerful music about 20 years ago. I just realized yesterday that they are the artist behind this astonishing piece of music and inspiring video. Sometimes we get so caught up in our lives that we forget the basics. Who are you? Why are you here? Why does it matter?

This song reminds us that there is something of immense value to be had when we return to our core; when we listen to the essence of our being. The wisdom, the knowledge, the remembering all right there any time we are ready to experience them.

May that experience inspire your day! May it stoke the fire of passion you once had for your life, your goals, and your dreams! May you truly return to innocence!
