I decided to join in the global meditation for peace. This world-wide event took place at precisely 12noon EST around the globe and headed by Depak Chopra, Gabrielle Bernstein, and India Arie. This historic event was registered with the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest group meditation in history.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew if India Arie and Depak Chopra were leading it, I wanted to be a part of it too. So, in my small apartment, sitting on my bed with the sun shining through the curtains and a light breeze blowing through the window, I focused my attention and intention on peace.
Just as Obama ordered air strikes and heavy fighting continued in Iraq, over 100,000 people joined in a common goal from 190 countries – PEACE.
Depak says that meditation is merely a quieting of the mind, which quiets the body, which helps your body go into a state of homeostasis and self-healing. He says, “the world is a reflection of who we are, and if we don’t like the reflection it doesn’t really help to break the mirror.” When we reach a critical mass of collective consciousness, it automatically changes the awareness and feeling of peace around the world.
We all have to take responsibility for the vibration we put out into the world. The more joyful we are, the more joy we spread in the world. The more creative we are, the more creativity there is in the world. The more peaceful intentions we have, more peaceful actions will occur on the planet.
Express your love, compassion, joy, empathy, and peace.
