Inner Peace Activism

Hi, and welcome to your Daily Mindfulness.

Today, I'm going to talk about

the idea of inner peace activism.

So when we look at human history,

we can see that there's been so

much war and injustice, so much

human suffering as a result.

In current news headlines, we hear

reports of conflicts still happening

in so many parts of the world.

And scrolling through social media,

we see groups of people with different

viewpoints being really aggressive

towards each other, creating greater

division and polarization in the world.

When we see all of this, we can

feel a bit helpless and overwhelmed.

We may think that there's

nothing that we can do.

We might think that we don't

play a part in all of this, that

we're not contributing to it.

But the reality is, is that we can

play our own part in bringing more

wisdom and compassion, understanding,

love, and peace into the world.

And when we do that, we are contributing

to the end of conflict and bringing

about peace in the world in some way.

Now, of course, this doesn't mean that

it's necessarily going to magically end

the civil war or in a particular area.

But ending the wars in our own

mind, the hate, the greed, the

aggression, the righteousness, the

judgements, the reactivity and ending

the conflicts in our own lives.

You know, the arguments, the

blaming, the shaming, the criticism,

the harsh social media posts.

And any behavior that, you know, harms

or even supporting groups of people

or companies, politicians that cause

harm to people, places, or the planet.

All of this has a significant

and critical impact in the world.

In fact, it's my belief that we,

as a humanity, cannot hope to

experience peace in the world if

we do not learn each, one of us, to

find peace in our own mind and life.

Outer conflicts arise from

inner conflicts, from our

state of consciousness.

And as within, so without.

So when you see conflict in the

world, rather than feeling helpless or

hopeless, let it inspire you to channel

your energy into inner peace activism.

By training the mind to incline

towards peace, presence and compassion,

we stop creating conflict in the

world within us and all around us.

And we become an island of sanity and

love in a sometimes frantic world.

And in this way, we don't just transform

our own lives, but that peace ripples

out and touches everyone in our lives

and really ripples out into the world.

As Gandhi once said, "We begin to

be the change we want to see in

the world and what could be a more

valuable contribution than that."

As always, thank you for your practice and

for your presence here in this community.

And let's settle in now

for today's meditation.
