When I read the headlines immediately following meditation this morning, I knew today’s topic would be something related to peace. It just had to be.
I don’t usually blog about the international world out there, but Vladimir Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine was a blow to my soul, despite it not being a surprise. How ironic, I suppose, that yesterday’s blog post was about expecting good. Right now, that’s a challenge. The Russian president has taken an action not seen in about 80 years, since the days of Hitler and WWII, and hoped to not be seen again.
I am sending thoughts of love and compassion to the Eastern European region of the world, and envisioning white light surrounding all the people. I am extending those energies out to the far reaches of the entire planet because everyone is impacted.
And, I’m sending light out even to Putin. He is so very lost; he fails to realize that we are truly one. An attack on anyone is an attack on all. I touched upon this just recently: “If we are all part of the great I Am, and we are each doing the best we can, why would any one of us even think of hurting another? It would be the same as harming our own self.”
It seems that any amount of news I read in these times is really too much for my soul. Still, I want to have a clue about what’s going on in the world; since I’m living in a human suit, it does/will impact me in some way, be it finances, supply chain, etc., but freedom most of all.
I am doubling down in these times to being the peace that is needed in this world. Peace is an inside job and what shows up in the external world is a reflection of the inner. I want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Hence, the prayer for myself is to be vigilant in being at peace within. That will radiate out towards others and have a ripple effect, just like the actions, feelings, and energies of others.
Peace in these times, and always, must start with me. In that state, I help lay a solid foundation around the world, with peace leading to healing others, especially the distraught, dangerous souls of those who hold power over others’ lives.
Spirit, I remind myself that You are in the midst of this entire world crisis, this entire mess; You are in the midst of everything, large and small, the inner and the outer. May I focus on You and know that the Law of Good and the Law of Love prevail and are always present in Your never-ending Presence.
