"Peace is possible. Each moment that one individual chooses peace inside, the whole of humanity moves forward. We each have the ability and responsibility to become peacemakers in our daily lives.”
- John Morton, D.S.S.
This issue of the HeartFelt Global Network Bulletin is focused on the International Day of Peace.
The International Day of Peace is on Wednesday, September 21st. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution 36/37, the General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to“commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples.” Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
John 14:12 King James Version (KJV)
All of us who have studied the teachings in MSIA know these words to be true. Our beloved John-Roger lived those words every day. Below is one of J-R's most powerful examples of the healing power of an intention and prayer for peace.
For those who are unfamiliar, in July 1988 J-R said that the Berlin Wall would come down in two years. At the time, there was no talk that that would happen, but he gave the challenge to those present to plant Light forms in the Berlin Wall and see it down. He said "most people see it up and complain, we have to see it down and praise."
J-R said that while there he had a moment when he went inside the Berlin Wall as a disintegrating worm that would break down the wall gradually over two years.
What was needed from everyone else in the group was that "they would be Light that energizes it and make it go through the wall."
"It has to feed on Light. Not anger, hatred or separation. It feeds off unity, compassion and caring and love."
The HeartFelt Global Network has created a weeklong set of Peace intentions in "Light" of the International Peace Day. There are so many places and situations throughout the world that need the Light. Please participate in any way you can throughout the week. Even by doing SEs for 5 minutes with the intention of peace would help. You can even set different intentions for peace than listed below if you prefer. But most importantly, let us come together in peace, filling the world with Light columns.
“Let us dedicate ourselves to peace within ourselves, that wherever we go, we bring peace and we learn to find peace in all things.”
- John Morton, D.S.S.
Monday September 19- Pray for Venezuela, especially our Venezuelan MSIA family there, see the country peaceful, filled with Light, prosperous, plentiful and bountiful food and resources, and safe.
Tuesday September 20- Pray for France, Europe, America and all those affected by terrorism, see the Light permeate all those who harbor hatred and let us see it be transmuted into love and Light.
Wednesday September 21- International Day of Peace- Set intention for world peace, visualize it, see the peace, see the world filled with love and Light in the hearts of every person
Thursday September 22- Plant a Light column in your town, city, state, country and see its Light transmute all negativity into positivity, all hatred into love, and all unrest into peace.
Friday September 23- Send Light to at least one person you come into physical contact with who may have cut you in line at the grocery store, made a rude comment to you or someone you saw, or just someone you think could use more Light. See their lives being filled with grace, peace, love and Light. Send the Light to as many people as you wish- the more Light, the better!
Saturday September 24- Do a random act of kindness today- this could be buying coffee for the next person in line, helping someone carry their groceries to the car, take ten minutes and call your mother and tell her how much you love her, make up with someone you have been fighting with, etc. And as you do it, surround the action and all involved with Light.
Sunday September 25- Make yourself into a walking Light column. Fill yourself with Light, know that peace is present and claim it, set your intention for you day, week, month, year to be a time of peace, and that you will try to do your part every day to bring the Light to the world, your world, and live the peace that is present.
Please also feel free to use a fellow minister, Merrill Collins's, meditation music to assist your prayers for peace. You can listen here.
“Everyone must be willing to sacrifice. Do you know what sacrifice means? The first part of the word "sacrifice" means holy. From that perspective, sacrifice no longer goes into suffering.
Sacrifice goes into holiness, into peace, into calmness, and the real willingness to give to others. We will actually sacrifice our time and give it to others. That's service.
We are here to serve each other.” - John-Roger, D.S.S.
