A Look In The Mirror

That's all it takes to change the world. Take a long hard look in the mirror and really notice who you are.

We're all screaming for peace right now - not just world peace - but peace in our cities, in our workplaces, in our homes and in our minds. There has to be a better way to end this madness.

We need a new way of doing things. Yet we seem to be stuck in outdated modes of thought that have not been working. For if they did, we wouldn't be in the predicaments we are in now. The past will keep repeating itself until we make a conscious choice to go in a new direction.

Going in a new direction begins inside of you, of me, and of us as individuals. Until we change as individuals, only then can the world change.

One of my favorite quotes is from Mahatma Gandhi - 'You must be the change you want to see in the world.' So to have world peace we have to look in the mirror. Take a look and try to find the peace you're searching for in your heart.

If you can't find it ask yourself why. It's not missing - it's been there with you all along waiting for you to begin your search within. Peace isn't hard to find at all. You just have to dig from underneath all of the rubble - fear and anger. Once you push the fear and anger to the side peace will be in plain view.

When you find the peace in your heart you start to exude it. It becomes infectious. Joy soon follows and a sense of calm is not too far behind. All of this from one good look in the mirror. One hard look at who you really are. That's all it takes to get the ball rolling.

And it's easy to pass it on. Remind your loved ones to find their peace within. They'll know it can be done because they would have seen the transformation in you. Be a walking example of peace and watch how it spreads.

When others come to you full of fear and anger remember the peace within yourself and gently remind them that no matter how bad it gets it will eventually work itself out for the best.

We get what we dwell upon so if we keep our thoughts based on fear and anger that's what we'll continue to get. Instead let's focus on peace - peace within ourselves and let these thoughts multiply. Remember, be the change you want to see - so be peaceful within your heart and watch your world begin to mirror that.
