The advice that’s pertinent to rebalance our life and to live peacefully:“Only together will we create a culture that supersedes the cycles of battle and retreat not through our fear of war but through mastering a superior way to live”Said Arthur Egendorf.
“The seed of this culture is the determination within individuals, and then small groups and communities, to devote our lives to the greatest vision of all time: not to wait for a savior one day to deliver us.
Each of us, singly and with all the others, is answerable for creating joy through the way our lives unfold, here and now. And once this purpose becomes primary, we can turn to bringing well-being to others, justice and integrity to our government, and instituting constructive programs for change here and elsewhere.”
The words that speak loudest to me in this sagacious observation are: “Each of us, singly and with all the others, is answerable for creating joy through the way our lives unfold, here and now.”I suggest that the number one thing you can do singly to create joy is remove hate from your inner consciousness.
Those who hate war are just as responsible for the presence of war as those who hate their assigned enemies and fight to kill them. Those who hate crime are part of the crime problem.
The secret to rebalancing life is not necessarily to change your behavior as much as it is to realign yourself and create a culture that supersedes the cycles of battle and retreat.
Whenever we use force to resolve our disputes, we instantly create a counterforce. This is true within you as well: A thought of hate creates a thought of revenge, and then more hateful thoughts in response.
And the real problem is that these thoughts of hatred and revenge begin to define your existence. They become your point of attraction.
Your initial desire to live peacefully in a world that the media reports has gone berserk, is a spiritually balanced desire. In order to materialize your desire, you must extend thoughts that match the energy of that desire.
Thoughts of hate will not blossom into your desired peacefulness, and the reason is: you attract more and more of that which you desire to eradicate.
You can detach yourself from thoughts of hatred (and) decide that you’ll be an instrument of joy. You, personally, can be one of those people who stubbornly refuses to add low-energy thoughts to the hate you observe. By doing so, you can contribute to the demise of hatred….
