It is too easy for us to be vocal and to shout about world peace to everyone we know. “We have to keep peace in our city and our nation. Let’s unite together.” Perhaps that’s the sentence we effortlessly write in our social media status or the words we easily talk about when we hang out with our friends.
But, perhaps, there are few things that we forgot on how peace in our world could occur.
Or perhaps, should I really emphasize it here (and sorry guys if I wake you up from your sweet dream), let’s accept that world peace would never actually happen.
Just like the light that would never exist without the dark, just like wisdom that would never exist without suffering, and just like kindness that would never exist without someone who needs a helping hand, that’s how the world goes round. It takes one to create another. They are inseparable. World peace might not yet come into reality, but our intention and our efforts to create world peace have made all the difference, make our lives and our world become more meaningful.
Just as peace, war is also the cause of collective karma
It is too easy to blame others for what happen in our country and our world. Those who live in the US might say that this is the effect of how their president always cause wars in the Middle East and things will just go worse because now Donald Trump is the president elected. And in Indonesia, people might say that the flared up political condition is caused by this and that person who are way too corrupt and now try to cover up their trails.
And yet, we have to remember that whatever happen to a nation is the effect of the causes that have been done previously by the nation. And when we say ‘nation’, it means we also talk about the people who live in the nation. All of us. Each and everyone of us. What we have done as a nation determine our destiny living in this nation. The government might be wrong, but our daily actions, the violence, what we have done haphazardly, our racist words and actions, the judgement we make towards those who are different from us, the wars huge and small that take place in our working space, home, and within ourselves – all sum up to this collective karma.
Anger takes place because fear exists. When someone feels threatened, he shuts himself down and he shows aggression towards others. All this time we’re similar to this stupid puppet which are easily threatened by the government, the media, and the society around us.
Do not be afraid. Fear cannot illuminate the dark. Only love can. Only love has the ability to change fear, anger, and war into security, compassion, and peace.
And to change what is happening to us today, it means we need more collective karma of joy, happiness, acceptance, sincerity, love and peace to create more security and peace wherever we live. And it means we need to start from ourselves.
The more you talk about it, the greater intensity you put into the issue to manifest into reality
This reminds me of what my client’s Higher Self once said when I asked her about LGBT phenomenon which became such a hot topic in Indonesia a while ago. And her Higher Self clearly explained that LGBT became such a fuss because the topic was a talk among everyone. The more you talk about it, the more intensity you give into that particular issue. The more it’s repressed, the more it blows up. And the more it’s exaggerated, the more contagious it becomes.
So, let’s stop talking about fear. Stop talking about wars. If you do not wish wars to happen, let’s lessen and diminish the intensity of this issue starting from ourselves.
In turn, let’s talk and let’s post about things that make ourselves and others feel joyful, giddy, peaceful and happy. Think, say and act with self love as a priority. Because if you’re happy and fulfilled, you won’t have the capability to hurt other people. Think, say, and act with the understanding that you cannot be happy alone. If you want to be happy, make others happy.
Peace starts from within
But, guys, all these will be useless if we won’t start doing anything. How could we ask to stop war while we are still in war with our own self, cannot accept who we truly are? How could we ask to stop racism while we still pout our neighbours who are of different religion and ethnicity from us? How could we ask to stop judgement while we still measure others by their looks, money and assets?
The feeling of being content, secure, happy and peaceful come from within. Other people can hurt us. The world can hurt us. But if we know who we are and we have this love huge and strong within us, all the wound, trauma and suffering would only make our light shine even brighter.
Guys, let’s start from ourselves. Life is full of suffering already. When we are hurting, we have more potential to hurt the people we love. But if we are healed, not only the people we love become healed, we might even have the potential to shine upon many other people with the light and love that we have.
Be that light. Be that shining candle. Please help me to share this message of peace to as many people as you can. It is time for us to stop blaming, it is time for us to start taking actions – starting from ourselves.
I pray so that you are in peace with yourself and with one another. Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you soon!
