A GLOBAL COLLECTIVE EFFORT
It has been hypothesized that as little as the square root of one percent of the world population, which is approximately 8,000 people, is enough to shift the global mind into one of world consciousness for peace. It is for this reason that the Peace Every Day Initiative is committed to inspire at least 8,000 people to collectively create a powerful thought-form of peace, every day. Our vision is that the number of people meditating collectively through consciousness and intention will soon surpass 144,000, a sacred number for the healing of the world that will bring the Thousand Years of Peace. May the initiative spread to include millions of committed peace workers world-wide.
History shows us that it takes more than a few peace celebrations to sustain peace on earth. This is the time to step-up the effort of our intention and become a continuous, active, global vibration of peace.
THE GLOBAL MIND
The global mind, although there are occasional sparks of peace through the efforts of many peace workers, is still dominated by the consciousness of fear, global greed, global economism and war. Given this, How will lasting peace be effected? Since some people are willing to put so much effort and sacrifice into creating a global vibration of war for self-gain and global domination, in order to shift the global mind there needs to be an equal, daily, sustained effort in creating a global resonance of peace. This global resonance will manifest more quickly as people from diverse backgrounds and religious and spiritual traditions are willing to come together in a spirit of cooperation and unity by acting with an attitude of tolerance and love. We actually become a living experience of peace. In this way, we realize what the Prophet Zechariah taught, “Not by might, and not by power, but by spirit alone, will we all live in peace.”
BEING THE SEVENFOLD PEACE
From the Essene tradition, peace is not just an external political protocol, it is an active sevenfold process of creating peace, harmony and love with the One—Peace with the body, the mind, the spirit, one’s family, society, the ecology of the living planet, and the Divine Presence. In this process, we create peace by being peace. It is from this place of inner peace that we have more energy and vision to be outer peace, to create the vibration that will sustain an outer peace. This process does not begin with politicians, nationalism or world economic policies. It depends on us, the people, taking responsibility to create such a strong thought-form and feeling of peace that the global mind shifts away from that of war consciousness to a global village of peace consciousness, from that economic greed, competition and domination to one of synergy and cooperation, from separation from the Divine and need to conquer nature to one of harmony with nature and humanity, from the concept of the accumulation of wealth and material resources as the purpose of life to one of synergy and cooperation and of receiving in order to share so that the whole planet may evolve spiritually.
COLLECTIVE MEDITATION & PRAYER
The act of meditating/praying together is a powerful way for each of us to be the peace process. This technology for true world peace transformation--the healing of the world-Tikkun Olam in the Kabbalistic Tradition--already exists. All that is needed is enough people to participate in awakening to and sustaining this truth. The transformation to peace consciousness accelerates when there is a critical mass in population that join together from all different walks of life, ages, spiritual and religious traditions, to pray and meditate--creating peace by being peace. The presence of every single person makes a difference. In Leviticus 26:8 it says, “A hundred of you shall chase away ten thousand.” This ancient truth of the power of uniting in peace, which has been with us for over 3,400 years, has some illuminating contemporary, scientific support. (See Scientific Support.)
THE NEED FOR DAILY COMMITMENT
The question one asks as a peace worker is, “Why haven’t our collective peace efforts created a lasting shift . . . yet?” Research on this question by Transcendental Meditation was that the effect of group meditation begins to fade approximately three weeks after the critical mass is no longer actively meditating in an area. This is why it is necessary at this point to go beyond a single world-wide event, four big events a year, monthly events and even weekly meditation groups, to bring the process of inner and outer peace to a daily experience of creating peace by being peace.
May you be blessed for your choice to consciously cooperate in the healing of yourself and the healing of the soul of the world.
May Peace Prevail on Earth!
