* From Awareness to World Peace

Water drop reflects the world

To meditate is simply to take time to be aware.

When we pause in mindfulness, we open up awareness to new insights about ourselves and life.

Our awareness expands beyond our own thoughts, beliefs and feelings, and taps into a deeper consciousness.

There is a softening as we acknowledge our frailties and imperfections … and that of mankind.

I believe that this mindful awareness opens the gateway to peace in the world.

In taking time to pause and find peace within, we become an instrument to bring about healing transformation in human relations.

Namaste

    • Yes H. The essential steps on the journey. I have hope for future generations. The young are open yet need balanced perspective to live well in today’s society still stuck on striving for more wealth and overcoming .
      Always wonderful to come back to “compassion springs peace”.

  1. Wonderful thoughts Val.. I agree, we create our outer world from our inner reality.. when we find our own inner peace it is then reflected in the world.. May more be ever mindful of their thoughts..
    Its something I often pull myself up on.. WordPress was a prime example of being a teacher 😉

    • Thank you jean! There are many people ao far removed from awareness of themselves, let alone a connection to their innermost being. The more people who take the first step of awareness, without judgement, the more hope there is. 💛

    • When we try, our thinking is in charge. Our thoughts tell us we should be able to sit and meditate.
      When we are ready, our Being simply wants to let go and notice. Let it happen with an open curious heart.

  2. It seems that I’ve been thinking and saying how great it would be to get back to yoga (and even better begin to understand meditation), and then these words you write seem to illuminate the way “In taking time to pause and find peace within, we become an instrument to bring about healing transformation in human relations.” ~ to get the best out of life. Cheers to a great week Val.
