World Peace is Possible!

Roses are Red...Healing is a matter of TIME, but it is sometimes also a matter of OPPORTUNITY. ~ Hippocrates (460 BC – 370 BC)

There has never been a better time than right now to bring healing in to your life and our planet. We are living in an incredible period of time. Many also feel this is a very critical period of time in humanity’s history. “A significant portion of the earth’s population will soon recognize, if they haven’t already done so, that humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

I believe we have the opportunity to evolve and to create a sustainable, just, and peaceful world. Each and every one of us have a role to play in creating this heaven on planet earth – we’re each responsible for healing our inner world.

The Journey of Hope

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it. ~ Helen Keller (June, 1880 – June, 1968) ~

I recently watched part of the Zeitgeist Film Series. I noticed that millions of people have watched this series. The gest of what little I watched of the videos I sensed the film brings up a lot of issues and problems we are facing in our world today. These include social justice, economical and environmental problems.

As you most likely have, I’ve seen and heard of other films and programs with similar purpose to the zeitgeist film series. I imagine these programs are intended to raise awareness of the issues and problems we are facing in our world today whether it be global warming, war, and or hunger.

Personally I’ve been a witness to some of these issues and problems. I left my country because of one of the longest ongoing civil wars in East Africa and lived in a refugee camp in Kenya for two years. Many of my extended family members still live in Ethiopia in absolute poverty.

Since finding sponsors and coming to Canada I’ve realized even tough I’m living in a free, and peaceful country, the Western world has its’ own set of unique issues and problems. As a mental health nurse I’ve had an eye opening experience working with the most marginalized populations of the western world – the homeless, the mentally ill, and those who are involved in the justice system.

So after witnessing and going through all of these experiences why do I believe world peace is possible?

Because I believe as Helen Keller despite the world being full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it. I can at least speak for myself. Once my life use to be full of suffering and I have found a way to overcome it! Hence I choose to believe regardless of the many negative things that maybe happening in our world today there are as many if not more positive things happening.

I know it may be difficult to believe this as many of you are bombarded each and everyday with more of the negative happenings than the positives. In the back of your mind you may be asking where is humanity heading? What is becoming of our world? Am I ever going to see world peace in my life time? Will love and harmony ever reign amongst the human family?

What You Think and Focus on Matters!

Part of the reason why I believe creating a sustainable, just, and peaceful world is possible today than ever before is because I believe as human beings we are powerful creators. We are the creators of our own life and our own world. We do this through our thoughts.

This concept is not something I came up with. This is the teaching and the message of the greatest teachers in history. Ultimately the law of attraction says what you focus on expands. Therefore what you see, what you hear,  what you think, what you say and what you do matters!

So what does this have to do with creating world peace?

If we’re we’re going to create this sustainable, just, and peaceful world we will all need to take responsibility for our own healing. We also need to realize that we each have a critical part to play in the creation of this wonderful world. We can’t pass the buck! The buck absolutely stops here with you and with me.

When you find and embrace your unique path to healing you embrace humanity’s journey as a whole toward peace, love, and harmony. Our individual journey of healing and returning to wholeness is inextricably intertwined to humanity’s journey to truly understanding and knowing our oneness.

World Peace Depends on Each of us Embarking on Our Unique Healing Journey

How important is it for you to do the work of healing? It is critical. There is a reason and a purpose to why you are ALIVE at this particular time in humanity’s history. I believe we are here at this exact point and time to usher the “New Earth”. Each and every one of us have a great calling.

“You have a sacred calling. The question is will you take the time to heed that call? Will you blaze your own path? You are the author of your own life. Don’t let others define it for you. Real power comes by doing what you are meant to be doing, and doing it well.” ~ Oprah Winfrey ~

Discovering Your True Purpose

As Eckhart Tolle beautifully put it in his wonderful book “A New Earth” as human beings we all share a common inner purpose and that is to “Awaken”. I believe doing the work of healing plays a huge role in the process of awakening. I also believe that once you initiate the process awakening it become easier to discover your true outer purpose. It also becomes simpler to align your inner and outer purpose. I know this has been the case in my own life.

Today my mission in life is to assist as many people as I can in their journey of healing and returning to wholeness. I believe there is no greater work I could be engaged in as the work of healing. I’m truly grateful to have the opportunity to do what I am meant to do and what I LOVE most.

Thank you for taking the time to spend time with me here today. Please leave me your questions and comments below. Pass this forward on Facebook and Twitter.

Peace, Love & Gratitude,

Hi Neseret,
Be the change that you want to see in the World. Once we are able to demonstrate that peace and healing is possible others will soon be to follow. The World is actually slightly more positive than negative at the moment and we are indeed in a time of great awakening and change.

Hi Justin,

Yes I agree. The best gift we can give to ourselves, our loved ones, our community, and the world is to make the best of ourselves. This of course involves healing our wounds, and learning to accept and love who we truly are.

I also agree with you that there is so much good happening in the world. So many people are experiencing personal transformation and healing. To me the future looks beautiful. I believe humanity will evolve as each of us awaken to who we truly are.

Wishing you many blessings and peace,
