Peace On Earth Goodwill Toward Man.
Peace on Earth Good will toward man? We say it. We wish for it. We may even believe in it. But do we look at the reality we create as mankind that keeps it from happening and really ask a collective WHY?
Christmas has once again come! The time when we Celebrate The birth of Jesus. Reach into our hearts and give to the poor, gather with family (perhaps some of whom we would rather avoid). We go about saying and praying for Peace On Earth Good will toward Man. And, Like every year, go about our ritualistic patterns of this festive time. Isn’t it great! Merry Christmas! Or is it?
Once again I’m reminded more than ever at this time of year how we DON’T really wish for Peace On Earth and good will toward man! We’re all far too busy Buying presents, fighting for the last big hot ticket item on the shelf at the store, or worse yet and most pervasive, fighting about what our idea of Peace is and what it takes to achieve it for ALL.
So this year, I’d like to give you a very special gift! No charge! I ask Nothing in return because the gift I want to give will be it’s own reward if you accept it. The gift we all REALLY want, but never really give because Honestly we don’t know how! So the gift is to give yourself what you want FIRST and then share it with the world so desperate for it. The gift is to begin building the Skill required for TRUE PEACE! Building the skill for peace takes as much if not more dedication than any skill the world would ask you to strive for. But the principle of training is much the same. With one VERY important difference! Instead of learning to do something, we are asked to Unlearn all we have learned or think we know. To Allow what we resist, feel what don’t want to feel, and think in ways we’ve never thought of before! A complete reversal of everything we know, think, feel or believe needs to be reversed! Nothing can be held on to as “True”. (including what I say here! More on that later in this blog. )
The idea of right and wrong has to be loosened by some honest and very deep questions that at first seem quite simple. Which they are! But the mind we are used to and “comfortable” with Loves complexity! So we are already at a disadvantage because we naturally tend to complicate the simple.
To begin building World Peace I have to start with myself! I can’t give what I don’t have! So like the rest of the world I give what I do have! My thoughts! But What the world and our schools never teach is what thoughts do, what they are for and how they effect ourselves and those we share them with! INSTEAD They tell us WHAT to think, When, and The benefit of gathering information to be “effective and successful”. To Get ahead in life! But Ahead of who? Ahead of what? If I get ahead, Who get’s left behind!? So we have some work to do! And a LOT of question to ask ourselves individually and collectively as a species!
So For Christmas Lets get together one by one! And Learn to make a REAL difference and make the Christmas wish of PEACE ON EARTH GOODWILL TOWARD MAN a Reality!
To begin building the skill of Peace I’ve found it helpful to ask myself some questions of why I am NOT at peace! Since I don’t know what that is yet, I have to eliminate the reasons I Believe it’s not possible or practical to Not attack or defend anything because neither will bring peace! Now That idea already sets up conflict doesn’t it? How can I NOT attack OR defend myself and stay alive?
Well that’s a good place as any to start! Can you see that both attack and defense are the same idea? The idea of war! Is War peace? Does it bring Peace? No! Never has, never will! History proves it didn’t work then, isn’t working now, and will not work in the future! Again, don’t believe me! What’s your experience if you argue with any idea anyone has? Including yourself!? What about if you defend an Idea and “STAND UP FOR JESUS” or anything else? IS it really true we have to fight for what we believe in? Where is the PEACE and goodwill toward man we WANT in that idea??? Obviously missing! So I have to then ask, Do I want to be right? Or Do I want to be happy and at peace? What do I value Most? What goal is most important to me?
Who do I hold a grudge against? What makes me angry or upset? What or who do I thinkshould be different? But the biggest question I’m asking you to share with me in asking is this: Is THIS Peace and goodwill towards MAN???
Do these thoughts and Ideas I hold so dear HELP me… AND those around me? Or is this the reason I experience conflict and suffering? Any Resistance found in me or you is an attack on Peace! A disturbance of the peace that could be here if I choose to allow it to BE!
So the natural question is how do I allow EVERYTHING to be??
Now if I knew that… I’d tell you! But the fact remains I DON’T know! That’s why I have to ask these questions! At a basic level it comes to living in the question! How am I NOT at peace!?!? And What am I avoiding, arguing with, resistant to,afraid of, etc that keeps PEACE from my experience?
By being vigilant to noticing how that happens, and “turning the other cheek” as Jesus would say; Peace will come to us! Because we’ve allowed it! We made room for the Prince of Peace to Come! And we ARE “born again”! Then faith, belief, and a Future promise will replaced with the Welcome home party we’ve heard about in the story of the prodigal son! The 2nd Coming of Christ will be YOU & I and not Jesus in the clouds! Because we joined with Him THIS DAY!
“One day at a time…Sweet Jesus! That’s all I’m asking from you”. Can we ask this of each other and allow time to do it’s work until we ALL become as Christ?
If I’m going to have a ME 1st attitude; Then let me be the first to find Peace by noticing everything that keeps me from it’s experience… in MY mind! Because I can only share what I HAVE! So let me then say to my brothers “Forgive them they know not what they do” (That’s WHY they do it! It’s why I do it!)
Because I THINK I know what I’m doing and I believe that thought, I resist any other thought that tells me I don’t know. And Contrary to what we think we know is what True knowledge is! It’s our resistance to Truth that keeps Peace on Earth goodwill toward man a reality! Because we think we are human beings, instead of beings that are in human form. A very subtle but important rearrangement of words! Because anything we think, creates the Illusion of what we ARE being. So we have to Unlearn that we are FORM and get back to the original Thought that made the form possible! Doesn’t an Idea precede creation?
The idea I have, that I’d like to share with you today, is to come together in reversal from form to the idea! To GIVE A Free Spiritual awakening workshop! BUT! I want to be fully honest with you!
