Do you wish there was less fighting in the world? Not just at the international level, but at home, in a marriage, in the workplace, or in your community?
The world could use more peace these days.
Some people believe fighting is inevitable, as if certain countries are doomed to meet in armed confrontation, spouses are supposed to argue, siblings are programmed to pick on each other, and co-workers eventually grate on each other’s nerves. There’s another point of view worth considering though, a world where disagreements are not settled by who yells the loudest or who carries the biggest weapon. A world in which love arbitrates the decisions and forgiveness rules the day.
We can’t do it alone. The human mind needs help to extricate itself from the hate and negativity it perpetuates. But we have help. We have the power of divine Love to dissolve tension. Like walking into the summer sunshine and feeling the warmth of the sun, when we mentally walk into the omnipresence of Love we feel the action of God’s Love melting away our fear, anger and resentment.
Next time you’re tempted to get angry or fight, stop the ugly emotion from growing. Refuse to be swayed by hate. Choose a better way. Don’t fight. Unite! Unite with divine Love and let kindness dominate your thought. The world will be a more peaceful place.
