Blog Post 12.15.12 (I want Peace…)

I am done with giving my energy to all the negative horrible news, bombarding me non-stop.  I have had so many thoughts running through my head, so I thought I would put them down in a post to share.  Some will agree with what I say, some will not.  But I thought I would get this off my chest and move on.

The last year or so I have been on a search.  You could call it a search for myself or a search for inner peace or a search for happiness.  Some will probably say I am in a “dream world”, or I am naive, but if you just allow yourself to open your mind you may see a different point of view.

Peace, we all say we want it.  But how do we exactly achieve it?  I do believe that we will never achieve it with violence (of any kind).  I believe that if we truly cared about others, their happiness, their well-being, we would eventually have peace.  We have to get out of our “what’s in it for me” mentality, well-being for everyone will only make things better for everyone (this includes healthcare, both physical & mental).  I think peace is contagious and it spreads.  Peace cannot be forced on someone.  It has to be shown by example.  ANYTHING negative or violent will NEVER achieve peace.

Guns = negativity = destruction.  There is nothing positive that would ever come from them.  You may try to rationalize it but the bottom line is all they do is destroy, that IS their function.  You can say protecting yourself is positive, but if your mentality is about protection, you are not thinking peace and it’s a negative thought.

People are not born wanting to hurt others.  That is put into people’s minds.  Everyday there is violence and negative energy on the news, on tv shows, on the roads and people’s attitudes.  Have you ever tried to say something nice or help someone that was angry toward you or meant harm? Maybe you should try it and you may be surprised!  I do believe everyone wants to be loved, it’s human nature, and a lot of people have never been given that.

Ok, I have expressed my opinion.  I will now stop commenting, “liking”, re-tweeting posts related to the horrible event from yesterday.  I will stick to my usual positive thoughts.  You may comment or share this post.  I will not comment on positive or negative thoughts, all my thoughts are above.  I will approve comments as long as they are constructive whether positive or negative.

Thank you for listening.

Peace…
