peace-through-humane-ways_dalai-lama

At the end of the day, we want peace.  For ourselves, for our world, and for our loved ones; the search for peace and contentment does seem elusive.  The violence of our world has shattered our existence and global change needs to shift more positively.

Some of us worry about our finances, relationships with loved ones, jobs and careers, raising our children, developing our passions and inspirations, and building a life of meaning.  Each of these can lead us to peace of mind and spirit.  Living without constant conflict, fear or doubt, would be a means to peace.

Kindness and compassion to others is one means of bringing moments of peace.  At times when my mind has far too many tabs open, I seek music to soothe me, as well as words.  A year of plans and decisions has passed to make room for new ones in the coming year. Have I chosen well? Did I make others happy? Did I make someone else feel better when I had the chance?  Do my loved ones know that I may not have liked every interaction, but am so grateful for them in my life?

These are steps along my personal path for peace.  Until our world catches up, I will do my part to create it in my life.

I wish you moments of comfort and calm in your search for peace.

It is so wonderful to meet a kindred spirit.  It is a gift; understanding is such a healing balm to the soul.

Empathy and Kindness create peaceful communication supported with positive feelings, generous energy, and the delightful yet rare occurrence:

You get it.  You understand me. 

We can begin speaking of idealism and hope.  There is no struggle to be heard nor need to explain.  Thoughts and feelings are no longer superficial.

It is a homecoming of like-minded spirits in an otherwise busy world without connection.  The soothing acceptance creates calm and peace in the heart.

There is no way to plan on meeting such a person as our busy days proceed. But, when we do, it is an overwhelming power.

What a joyous gift for which I am so grateful and appreciative!

When you are a sensitive person, you become a caretaker.  You carry someone else’s burdens as your own.  When a loved one suffers and struggles, you accept the challenge to care for their physical needs.  It can be lonely and thankless.

A caretaker deserves more than appreciation.  A caretaker deserves support; it is a task few will take on and yet, each of us needs a helping hand.  My sister’s strength in taking care of our loved ones made her a warrior, but exhausted.  She made someone else’s love and well-being more important than her own.

Try to care for someone else, or lighten the burden of another, just a little.  Give care to those who do it for others.

It is a gift that can never be repaid and a model of behavior that few will ever undertake.

It is extraordinary.
