Today is the day of Peace. Mimi Writes Blog has put this amazing event together on the blogosphere and it is an important movement of intention. Dona Nobis Pacem means "grant us peace." I believe the peace we seek starts within us. The wars that are out there started as a thought and finished as a manifestation of belief. If we can look at our part of that group thought and see the way within us and take responsibility for our own violent thoughts... we have a chance at peace.
Who and what are you warring with? Where in your body are you in tension? Who have you had violent thoughts about. Each of these are the thoughts and beliefs that create global versions of the same, not to mention tension in our own lives.
Take a moment right now to thank yourself for the divine opportunity to explore you own thoughts and to recognize those places of discomfort and tension, apologize to yourself for having the life or childhood that created those thoughts, have empathy for yourself for having those thoughts and actions as a coping mechanism, love yourself for having the Kaunas to look and take action, for being able to release and for simply being you. Apologies to those who you might have wronged through thought, word or deed.
You are free for the moment... peace is now yours.
