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.
Be intentional about recognizing your reflection, all the lessons it has to teach you, and show gratitude to the person looking back at you.
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 in the world…
We need a new way of doing things. We need to redshift our minds, detox and deprogram from all the toxicity that we’ve been forced to believe. We all seem to be stuck in outdated modes of thought that have not been working for decades – hell even centuries! For if they did, we wouldn’t be in the predicaments we are in now.
Tradition isn’t always the best route – it could be just peer pressure from ancestral trauma, that further leads to recycled forms of hurt, pain, and oppression.
The past will keep repeating itself until we make a conscious choice to go in a new direction. Be unafraid and unapologetic to let go of things that no longer serve you – including but not limited to friends, jobs, environments, material, spiritual and emotion outdated frames of being.
Going in a new direction begins inside of you, inside of me, and inside of us all as individuals. Until we change as individuals, only then can the world change. Collective liberation is founded in self-determination.
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. Recognize the change must begin with your reflection.
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. Your reflection is waiting for you to heal and become the person you were always destined to be. Peace isn’t hard to find at all. You just have to dig from underneath all of the rubble, distractions, and obstacles – fear and anger. Once you push the fear and anger to the side, peace will be in plain view. There will be no need to self-medicate when you are forced to heal the wounds that ache you.
When you find the peace in your heart you start to exude it. It becomes infectious – and affects everything and everyone around you. Joy soon follows and a sense of calm is not too far behind. All of this from one good look in the mirror and recognizing the reflection right in front of you. 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 as well. They’ll know it can be done because they would have seen the transformation in you as a witness to your growth and healing. Be a walking example of peace and watch how it spreads across to others.
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. Have faith and trust the process.
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 outwardly. Remember, be the change you want to see – so be peaceful within your heart and watch your world begin to mirror that.
Take a look at your reflection.
