DAY 63: The thought for today is RELEASE
A Sufi proverb says, “When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the spirit laughs for what is found.”
Release the weight of your past, the judgments of yourself and others, and “be the change you wish to see.” –Gandhi
Make room for what is here in this present moment. Release the hurts, resentments and mistakes of the past and be present to the non-violent presence you are right here, right now.
In the presence of a man or woman within whom all hostility has been released, others cannot respond with hostility. In the presence of a man or woman within whom all fear has been released, others cannot respond with more fear.
This is the power of true non-violence, as we can see in the life of Gandhi. Because he had released all hostility and fear within, he was a profound force for peace.
Today: I reflect back on how far I have come during this 64-Day journey. I release the idea that World Peace is not possible by acknowledging that I really do make a difference. Say out loud, “I DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!” I know that each and everyone of us makes a difference, and just like pennies add up to dollars, our individual consciousness of peace adds up to a peaceful world.
