Meditation .... For Peace
A few evenings ago I had the great pleasure of listening to Noam Chomsky speak at the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation's 33rd Annual Evening for Peace. It seems rather trivial to think that something like meditation could have an impact on world peace but imagine if everyone, everywhere, in all corners of the world stopped what they were doing each and everyday to ground and center themselves; breathe, disconnect and reconnect for 30 minutes (or 10 or 20 or 60).
What impact do you think that would have on each individual? What impact do you think that would have in our communities and our relationships? What impact do you think that would have on our world?
We're all busy. We're all making ends meet. We're all striving to better our lives. Perhaps we're putting effort in the wrong place.
If you already meditate, if you've done it before but "it didn't work", if you've read about mediation but don't think it's for you, if you're a human and reading this - I invite you to try the Oprah / Chopra 21 Day Meditation Experience. It's free and starts on Monday. I can't think of a better time in our current history to bring more peace and connection into our daily lives.
