A Practice Returning

Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something. It’s our goal in life to find it and to keep it lit. -Mary Lou Retton

If you read my last post Take Care of Yourself you know that I have made a commitment to, as the title suggests, taking better care of myself. I’ve gotten off to an okay start. I’m not exactly cooking veggie filled gourmet meals every day, but I’m getting better. The biggest thing I’d say I’ve done is taking time out for myself and returning to the things I loved to do before my daughter was born. Specifically yoga & meditation.

Before I got pregnant I had a wonderful job at a yoga studio, which led me to attend and complete an even more wonderful Yoga Teacher Training (YTT). I taught for a few months before I found out I was pregnant and plans changed.

Tomorrow I will be taking time out of my day to meditate for peace. I hope you will too.

I am committed to making a better, more peaceful, more sustainable, happier and healthier world.

I realize for most people they may be it work and are unable to meditate in the middle of the day. All you need to do is set an alarm on your phone, and take a moment to think of what peace means to you. It may only take 30 seconds, but it will help create a peaceful shift.

If you aren’t comfortable meditating, perhaps you could pray for peace instead.

No matter your beliefs, if you have one or not, the call for peace is real. And we cannot ignore it anymore.

If you are unable to meditate or pray, simply try posting a peaceful status on your favorite social media outlet, I’ve included some great quotes on peace that would be wonderful to share:

Peace comes from within, do not seek it without. – Buddha

For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.  Romans 8:6

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. –Mother Teresa

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love.  – Francis of Assisi

We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves. – Dalai Lama

Anything you can do with PEACE in mind will make a difference. If you would like to sign up visit: globalmeditation.chopra.com

WE are the answer we’ve been waiting for.

WE have to power to bring peace to our world.

WE are peace. YOU are peace. #iampeace
