I know my family think I’m a few fries short of a Happy Meal, but I was restless last night, so at approximately 3.30am I arose and went to my ‘special place’ (some might call it the couch in the lounge room) to meditate on world peace. My beautiful wife Tutti said, “You’re crazy! How do you think that’s going to help?” And this of course is our greatest challenge today, in the face of increasing world tensions and terrorist attacks, how not to feel helpless as a single person?
My point is, we’re NOT a ‘single person’ and anyone who has experienced the profound ‘Oneness’ of higher consciousness will fully understand what I’m saying. We are irrevocably connected to All That Is and to the beautiful, perfect and eternal Dance of Life. In this sense, we are actually bullet proof and need fear nothing. In fact it’s imperative we conquer any fears we may have and stay strong and resolute, with our thoughts focused on all that is positive and good in our beautiful world. Love and Joy will always be stronger than fear and hate and we’ll never give up on this idea! Life is beautiful.
And in answer to Tutti’s question, ‘how will getting up at 3.30am to meditate on world peace help?’ I say this. We should never underestimate the power of prayer, or our complete interconnectedness to each other and the universe. What we think, we create. Our beliefs create our reality and once this is fully understood, a peaceful world will manifest. Courage!
