I find these words so inspiring from Chade-Meng Tan
“Like many others wiser than me, I believe that world peace can and must be created from the inside out.
If we can find a way for everybody to develop peace and happiness within themselves, their inner peace and happiness will naturally manifest into compassion.
And if we create a world where most people are happy, at peace and compassionate, we can create the foundation for world peace….
Fortunately, a methodology for doing that already exists and has already been practiced by various peoples for thousands of years.
It is the art of contemplative practices to develop the mind. Most of us know this as meditation.”
~ Chade-Meng Tan
It begins with each and every one of us.
Now more than ever, find the connection to the peace and stillness within you.
Consciously step away from the external chaos of the world and the media.
It only takes a moment to pause and take a few deep breaths.
Allow your awareness to move into the center of your being, just below your heart.
Notice the rise and fall of the breath.
Ask yourself “What is alive in me right now?” and “Can I be with this?”
Sit with this for a while and allow what you are experiencing to be felt in your heart.
You have the answer to world peace within you.
