To keep us alive, the cells in our body live in peace with each other. If we were aware of our fellow man as being just another cell in the same body, we would be able to live in peace with each other. We would know that we all have a key role to play to maintain life. That we are living human beings with the aim to further life, to experience life from its greatest intention. The more conscious you are, the more at peace you are. The more at peace you are, the more humanity will be at peace. Peace is the consciousness of connectedness to one indivisible unit, above all the unit that is our own individualization but also the unit we call humanity.
When we are unaware of these profound truths, we make quick, spur-of-the-moment decisions without any thought of the long-term consequences. The world is full of unconsciousness, giving rise to decisions just to ‘fix’ the moment. To lie, to cover up, to compromise ethics and morals, to camouflage emotions, to pretend. We all succumb to unconsciousness at moments, both as individuals and as a society. Are you at peace with yourself when you are making unethical decisions? We as humans cannot sustain peace within ourselves when we lie to ourselves. In a lie, there is a conflict, a duality. Because even if you are not conscious about lying, one part of you knows. The divine part of you knows that there is one part that is true and another part that is false. It is really that simple. Peace involves wholeness. War involves separation.
Consciousness is to be the cell and the body at the same time. To be the ego and the soul at the same time. To be our individual selves and to be our higher selves. The peace you find when you are conscious of yourself, is the peace we would find in the physical world if we were truly conscious of each other as one humanity.
To be conscious of the fact that you are a soul in a body having a human experience. To be humble in that knowledge.
Consciousness involves curiosity. Peace involves curiosity. All people who have attained the blessing of inner peace have at some point been curious about themselves. To raise yourself to love yourself more is to consciously ask yourself questions about what prevents you, and why you don’t allow yourself to be at peace.
To be conscious is to be able to not react emotionally from an unaware place. In the moment of anger, it is as if the conscious part of us goes out the door. Consciousness is to be grateful for the gift of life.
Let us aim for peace, within ourselves and in the world.
