In these challenging times, it is more important than ever that we find our inner peace in order to project outer peace. Peaceful minds lead to peaceful speech and peaceful action. Everything is interconnected in the web of life and so are the minds of all living beings. Each being has a transmitting as well as receiving station. Even the most insignificant thoughts in our own mind have an effect on other beings.
Peace in our time requires that we move from a world of separation and disconnection to one of inclusiveness, healing and forgiveness – a world of justice.
The restoration of sacred relationships within ourselves, with others and the web of life will move us from fear and revenge to love and compassion.
Let’s concentrate on putting our minds at peace so that we can broadcast peace mentally and generate peace through actions. Peace can be brought to the world one thought at the time in the minds of each one of us. And remember: All life is sacred!
The interconnectedness of the web of life is so much more tangible when we spend time in nature than in our man-made environments. Unconsciously we imprison ourselves by disconnecting from spirit. The Shamans would call this soul loss. We fail to see the bigger picture or divine order whilst feeling separated and finite, which leads to a fear-based life of loss and scarcity.
In order to expand in love and live an abundant and happy life, we have to connect with ourselves, and others in a compassionate way, have patience and the courage to try new things without fearing failure. We have to forgive ourselves for what we think we have done wrong and forgive others for what we think they have done to us. Find a daily spiritual practice, that suits you and keep it up. According to the Dalai Lama, the main purpose in life is to seek happiness and that’s tha
“Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

What has proven as a very effective spiritual practice for me is Kundalini Yoga.
Kundalini Yoga consists of simple yogic techniques that can be enjoyed by everyone, no matter of age or physical ability. It is a complete science that includes breath, yoga postures, mantra and meditation. It balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, expands lung capacity and purifies the blood.With a regular practice you will soon notice a significant improvement of your general health, physically and emotionally.
Kundalini Yoga is a potent system of self-transformation and personal development, makes you radiant, peaceful and strong so that you can meet life’s challenges with strength and compassion.
We have 1000’s of different sets and meditations in Kundalini Yoga, but each practice can ultimately lead to you finding inner peace through a letting go of your fears, judgements and self doubts.
“What’s outside is deep within”
If you are experiencing turmoil all around you, then that might well be a reflection of what is going on with you.
This is a beautiful Kundalini mantra for Peace: Sat Narayan Wahe Guru Hari Narayan Sat Nam
“The mantra is chanted to create inner peace so one can project outer peace, happiness and good fortune. Narayan is the aspect of Infinity that relates to the water element. This mantra helps you “go with the flow” and takes you beyond the world to the experience of Infinity.”
Just chant along with one of the wonderful recordings, that you can find here.
Peace to All, Light to All, Love to All
