World Peace – Is It Possible?

One of the most basic lessons I have learned in my quest for meaning in my life is that all the riches and gifts in the world are meaningless if we don’t feel good inside. Many practices can help us find that peace and serenity, like meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, etc. I have practiced all of those and more over the years, yet there was always something still missing.

What I realized finally is that ultimately, peace comes from a decision to feel good from within each of us. We need to feel it, even create it, from within our hearts. It begins here and radiates out to the world around us – not the other way around.

Peace comes from the intention to feel happy and peaceful. We really can’t create it in our world until we already feel it inside. A subtle difference, perhaps, but a profound one. When a critical number of people decide to feel this way, we will truly start seeing change in the world. I don’t know what that critical number is, but each of us can only start with ourselves.

The image at the top of the page is a work in progress, an acrylic painting on a 24″ x 30″ canvas, which I started when I was feeling strongly this need for inner peace. Stay tuned for further updates on this painting.

  1. An interesting post that prompts considerable thought. The idea of Peace is generally a collective of perspectives related to something that has never existed. Alternately, perhaps the discussion would consider the prerequisite(s) for Peace. Fundamentally, Peace is not the cause of anything. Rather, the environment of Peace is the direct effect and the only possible outcome in the presence of Unconditional Love. We will live in Peace when the global community is governed by Love. We don’t have to learn how to live in Peace. We have to learn how to become Love.

  2. Lovely thoughts and WIP. I have been going to a vibrational healer for healing and also to learn. Just making that decision has made a difference in my outlook. There is so much to how our thoughts, past and present, affect our health and outlook. It is all one.
