Dona Noblis Pacem & Gratitude Post # 5




My thoughts this year about peace are still pretty much the same as always. I want to live in a world free from prejudice, hate, discrimination, indifference, and apathy. Why can't we love our neighbors as ourselves ? If not more than ourselves? Such a simple commandment. Why is it so difficult to follow? I still believe that love conquers all.

When we put someone else's needs before our own needs is when we come to a deeper understanding of what is required of us. The ultimate sacrifice of self less love for another human being, even for a total stranger. Compassion and understanding are defined by love.


It is not an easy step, but for PEACE it would require the ultimate sacrifices. A sacrifice of self less love, a deeper desire for those in need, those hurting, those we know not. To follow a righteous path of love. What would you do for World PEACE? I'd say that I would do just about anything required of myself for PEACE.


I choose to start with my family. I choose to be kinder and more tolerant and more understanding of my loved ones. It is often said that we treat total strangers better than we treat the ones that we love. Some times this is true. I am starting with my family, one person at a time. Then I build on that by taking it to the small community where I live. I choose to be kinder, more tolerant and lift up those in need. It manifest itself in many forms from volunteering, to mentoring, to just simply caring.


I challenge...No I beg each of you to go that extra mile for mankind, for humanity, and mostly for PEACE. It won't be easy, but it will be worth the effort. You only receive what you are willing to give back. This year I pledge for PEACE in my home and community. Like the movie "Pay It Forward", the concept is so simple you wonder why more people are not living this way?

Peace and Love to you my friends,

Pam

Really lovely peace globe, Pam. And a challenging post. I like the way you hold yourself up to practical applications of nebulous ideals. I had to remind myself not to get worked up at a coworker today - 'It's Peace Day' I told myself. Don't do it!

Peace to you.

Travis said...

Starting at home...the best place to begin anything. If enough of us take the small steps, then will we create big changes.

Peace to you and yours.

Karen Jo said...

That's a great way to live your life. If we all did that, peace would be within our grasp sooner than we think. Peace to you and yours.

I LOVE the design of your Peace Blog!
Your words speak volumes. I don't know if I'll see Peace come to our world but each day is a new beginning and I start with me.
Peace and love to you and yours.

That was a great read. Loved the putting someone elses needs before our own. So simple, yet not as utilized as one might imagine. If people would just try it once they'd be hooked and it'd be the only drug they need.

Peace,
Mark

Mimi Lenox said...

This is one of the most beautiful peace globes I've ever seen. It fills me with joy and light and puts a smile on my face. I love what you did with this post and highlighted the words. Your post looks like a painting.

I'm sorry it took me so long to get here. I am reading the posts slowly and deliberately. It is helping me to heal. They are bringing me peace and joy and reminding me of my purpose.

BlogBlast wouldn't have been the same without you, my friend.

Finding Pam said...

Mimi, all is complete now that you have come by to comment. I can not imagine how many you have read. I sincerely appreciate your doing so much in the name of Peace.

My globe was perefected by Mojo. I could have not done it with out his help.

Peace and love,
