Be the Peace You Want to See in the World – 2

“Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. Remember, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.” ~ Yoda

It is during dark times that dark thoughts and feelings creep up. Beware! Hatred is not overcome by hatred; through love alone is hatred overcome. Do not feed the dark side with more hostility and rage. This only makes it stronger. Beware, because, in the end, it may engulf and consume you completely. Pause, and ask yourself, “What am I thinking? What am I feeling? “ And if the thoughts and feelings may strengthen the dark side, don’t let them get a hold of you. Try something different. Ask yourself, “How can I dispel these dark thoughts and emotions with love? How can I be a bringer of optimism, hope and peace?” Remember S. T. O. P. — Stop, take a breath, observe, and only then proceed.

Be mindful, choose wisely, and respond with love.

Be the peace you want to see in the world.

Choose Happiness. Choose Love.

 

“Does this add to my happiness and the happiness of others?”

“Does this expands my happiness and the happiness in the world?”

Let the answers to these questions guide our decisions.

If we claim happiness, love, and peace as our birthright, and decide to be the most peaceful, loving, and happy individuals that we can be, and do only what expands those sentiments in the world, then, no matter what may happen to us, we will always experience a deep sense of calm and an exhilarating feeling of freedom from the trappings of the world.

So, decide to be a living expression of happiness. Decide to be the happiest person you can be. Decide to live mindfully,  to choose wisely, and to make of happiness a priority at every moment of your life.

Be mindful! Be amazed! Be grateful! Be content! Be compassionate! Be generous! Be happy!

Do what makes you happy. Be with who makes you smile. Laugh and Love as long as you Live.

Much love to you all.

~ Piero

><><><><

“We are individuals here on earth with our own unique purpose. Our birthright is to be happy. Your life is yours to be lived and to be cherished. Make yourself and your happiness a priority. Become a person that you’re proud to be – one that lives with a wide open heart and stands for human goodness even when it’s difficult or unpopular. Be honest. Be willing to change your mind as you grow, learn and love. Be humble enough to let people see your humanity, because this is when true connection is formed. Give. Give. And give more, but don’t forget to be a gracious receiver too. Live each day becoming your truest, greatest self. This is your life. Live it. “ ~ Michelle Ploog

Honor Those Who Came Before You

To all young (and old) artists struggling out there, may this video inspire you and make you think about what inspired him. May this video lead you to think about his connection with the Source of Creation, and encourage you  to further explore your own connection. May it inspire you to think of the ways he blesses humanity with what he does, and encourage you to bless humanity with what you do. May it take you to think about the love, peace, and smiles he spreads, and then renew your dedication to elevate the human spirit with your creation.

May this video inspire you to think how much he and all of those who came before him want all of this good to expand and go on. Pause for a moment, and absorb this energy!

May this video inspire you to think how much he and all of those who came before him want you to be successful. Feel their support and hear their well-wishes and their words of encouragement in the silence of this moment, and allow this energy to live in you!

May this video inspire you to think how happy he and all of those who came before him will be if you continue what they have started. Smile knowing that this is your time; you have been entrusted to continue their work, carry on their legacy, and tame the savageness of men with enlightening art.

Honor them by being mindful, authentic, and dedicated to your craft. Remember that you get from it what you put into it. Live mindfully, and make each present moment count. Remember that a good life is a collection of good moments, so make the best of this moment, of every moment, moment after moment. Remember that if you follow your bliss, the Universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.

“How stoked are you willing to be?”

Be the Peace You Want to See in the World

Let us cultivate peace, because the world needs it. The world needs peaceful people. The world needs us. Let us do what needs to be done to protect this calm energy of peace, and let us avoid all that disturbs it. Let us be vigilant in order not to be another one of those who brings more agitation, anger and hatred to the world. Let us be kind to one another. Let us be the peace we want to see in the world.

><><><><

We have great responsibilities. We must expand understanding, compassion, and love, because this is the most effective way of reducing the ignorance and the hatred in our world. We must live lives that uphold the well-being of others, and see ourselves as bringers of peace, the ones whose mere peaceful presences bring energies of concord to places of discord.

There’s a lot we can do to make this world of ours a better place for all.  So, let us go ahead and ask ourselves, “What can I do to create the just world of my dreams, the world I want to live in? What, given my attributes and my personality, can I do to make this world a better place? And what, among the many things that must be done, do I feel called to do?” The answers will vary because we are endowed with different talents and skills, but certainly one of the best things we can do, if not the best, is to take care of preserving and growing our own inner-peace while guiding and supporting others to do the same. Knowing that hatred is not overcome by hatred, but through love alone, we should pause and ask ourselves, “How can I promote peace while preserving and expanding my inner-peace and that of others?”

Think about it.  I am serious. Think about it.

Peace be with you.

“There is peace on Earth, and it began with me.”

~ Piero

A Rich Day

 

“What day is today,” asked Pooh. “It’s today,” squeaked Piglet. “My favorite day,” said Pooh.

The best days are the ones we contemplate, the ones we live mindfully, paying attention and being amazed by the Magic, Mystery and Miracles that surround us. The best days are the ones in which, by practicing mindfulness in silence, we see all the riches that the Universe has bestowed on us, and realize how wealthy we already are.

Still Hidden, But More Visible Figures

It is not easy to live in America if the color of your skin is not white. It is not easy to receive the recognition, respect, and reward you deserve for the excellence of your work if you are not a man. Life is twice as difficult if you are a black woman working among white men in America.

Last night I watched “Hidden Figures,” a well-crafted and sensitive film that generated deep reflections in me about gender and racial inequality in this country of ours. Directed by Theodore Melfi and written by Melfi and Allison Schroeder, the film is based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Margot Lee Shetterly. It tells the story, among others, of Katherine Johnson, the African American mathematician who calculated flight trajectories for NASA’s Mercury and Apollo programs while facing the difficulties of being a black woman in the US, and in a workplace populated and dominated by white men.

It made me realize, once again, that even though I can empathize, I really can’t fathom what it is to be black, or a woman, or a black woman in America. It made me think of the tremendous advantage I have simply for the mere fact that I was born a man, and white. It made me realize, once again, that the majority of the white population of this country go through life in a state of oblivion, completely unaware of this immense and gratuitous  privilege.

But it is evident that we are making progress, in spite of all the push-backs. We are realizing that prejudice, bigotry, discrimination and segregation are expressions of ignorance and fear. It is becoming clearer that we, all of us, are crew members of the same spaceship that is traveling through cosmos, and that we need to work together if we want Planet Earth, our space vehicle, to last.

There is a scene in the movie when Al Harrison, the head of the NASA program played by actor Kevin Costner, dramatically puts an end to segregated bathrooms in that NASA facility. The scene ends with him saying, “Here at NASA, we all pee the same color.” I guess that all of us — blacks and whites, women and men — are coming to terms with this.

I highly recommend the film. Watch it. May it touch you and inspire you to continue the work of growing in understanding, educating, dispelling prejudice, and bringing more justice and peace to our world. Let us remember what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. told us: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Let us give of ourselves to create a gentler world for all because, in the final analysis, we are all in this together.

Innocence and Rest

See yourself as a little, innocent child, and find refuge in loving arms.

Rest.

Rest without worries or fear.

Do not demand so much of yourself.

Do not judge yourself so harshly.

Let go of your ideas of good and bad.

Rediscover the beauty that surrounds you in this moment, and live in awe.

Be grateful for everything.

Trust that everything is unfolding as it should, and that all will be fine.

Ask for God’s desires to be your desires, allow yourself to be used, and trust that you are being used for mighty purposes in mighty ways.

Be generous.

Know that you are loved.

A Fulfilling Existence Through Mindful Living

The practice of meditation prepares us to live more mindfully in the present moment. It is a training that brings more awareness to those other moments of our lives when we are not meditating. This expanded awareness, and the more mindful choices that it brings about, enhances our well-being and the overall quality of our lives.

As we practice, we begin to pay more attention to our own selves and the world around us, and begin to notice beauty that we didn’t see before. We discover magic, mystery and miracles even in the simplest things, and begin to live in a state of amazement with the wonders that surround us. We experience a sense of gratitude for all that has been freely given to us, and feel richly blessed, realizing how fortunate we already are.

This more mindful life – a life in which the pace is slower and the attention greater – allows us to savor and enjoy a lot more. It is as if, with the slower pace and greater attention, high doses of elegance and refinement are introduced in our days. With sharpened senses, every unremarkable item suddenly becomes a masterpiece for our sensory enjoyment; every meal, no matter how simple, becomes a banquet; every occurrence, no matter how ordinary, is sensed as extraordinary. We begin to feel extremely rich, but in a different way: we feel owners of a kind of wealth that has nothing to do with one’s financial situation, or with the accumulation of possessions that money can buy, but that is immensely more satisfying.

This mindful way of living leads us to a joyful acceptance of what we have, what we do, and who we are. We begin to experience a sense of contentment that tames our relentless urge to strive to have, do, and be more. Engulfed in a restful cloud of peace, we suddenly realize that we are happy already, right here, right now.

><><><><

Start over!

Begin again!

Our lives are constantly beginning, again, and again. Every moment is the first of the rest of our lives, and the only one that really exists. We must try to tame the tendency of our minds to constantly visit the future and the past. This habit hinders our ability to be fully present in the here-now.

Knowing that a good life is a collection of good moments, let us make make of this and every moment the best it can be. Let us remember to be mindful, amazed, grateful, content, optimistic, compassionate, and generous! And by living out these qualities, we will create a fulfilling and happy life!

Know that you are loved!
