Remembering a Peaceful Way

Walking the dog this morning I ran into two women in the adjacent neighborhood both of whom I know. We joined to walk together, discussing families, weather . . . small talk. It is pleasant, the sun is shining and it is another beautiful day in the neighborhood. At some point, one of them mentions the fact that a local militia group is camped out at one of the local military recruitment offices armed to the teeth to “protect” the offices from terrorists. Scratching my head, I ask for more details. They both expand that this is the way it must be, it is a good thing, we must be on guard, in other words fearful. I do not digest these words very well. I say I don’t like guns, that I have never touched one and don’t feel they solve any problems. I also question whether these “militia” groups would not do more harm than good, that they might in fact shoot an innocent person as they most likely have no formal training in these matters. They both quickly hush me, and go on to inform me that they each have hand guns for protection, and that they are in fact in the process of obtaining their conceal carry permits as things are becoming far to dangerous in this world, one must be prepared to fight evil and you must be fearful.

As I departed for my home, leaving them on the street, I considered that they both may be in need of prayer and lifting up with love and light along with so many of the walking wounded in this world. Why do we all stand in the shadow of fear instead of the light of love? Why not try projecting love instead of hate and fear? I am left with my own thoughts about their negative energy and all those that are just like them wandering over the face of the Earth. When did we become so detached from source? We are love and yet we have strayed so very far. Sending love, light, peace and joy to everyone everywhere on the planet and remembering that we always have the ability to shine our soul’s light, access a greater reality and live in the heart of possibility.

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. ~ Mother Teresa

  1. This is prevalent in our society, but particularly in America. Fear is the absence of Love and while we stand in fear and anger we will attract this back into our lives. A good reminder to us all, to surround our world in love and peace. 🙂


  2. Yes, and we need to send as much love as possible these days everywhere in the world!

    Sad people have to live in fear. I met you on Danny Ray’s site at his Meet and Greet. Thank you for liking the post where he promoted my blog, Mostly Blogging. Nice to meet you.


  8. dear Heather, I returned to read this again…I feel as though in Wisconsin, this fear is great…I always find peace when I read your words…your good reminders that WE ARE ONE…I can hardly turn on the news these days. The negativity fed into our lives by one political party in particular causes me to skip the news most days. The very survival of Mother Earth hangs in a balance. And our gentle care for one another is caught in a fire of suspicion and hatred. It seems people lack trust in each other and are very afraid to trust others—and sometimes, I feel I am losing my trust in others. Keep us strong with your words!

    It’s a bit sad to think that people have been taught to fear, told to fear. People are not walking about wounded and in fear because something has happened to them. They’re fearing the fear they are told is beside them and behind them. They are wounded only by their own hearts and minds as they believe the fear-mongering false prophets of today’s world (mainstream commercial news reporting organizations and fear-mongering “clubs”).
    These things are not new. Fear has been used on susceptible people throughout history.
    We can take lessons from warriors, who must charge in to battle despite their fears, which are much more real than the fabricated ones.
    From slaves that held faith in their creator when life was bleak.
    From an American president, who said “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”.

    Seek peace,
