The Call To Live Everything

THE CALL TO LIVE EVERYTHING

One of the sad things today is that so many people are frightened by the wonder of their own presence. They are dying to tie themselves into a system, a role, or to an image, or to a predetermined identity that other people have actually settled on for them. This identity may be totally at variance with the wild energies that are rising inside in their souls. Many of us get very afraid and we eventually compromise. We settle for something that is safe, rather than engaging the danger and the wildness that is in our own hearts. We should never forget that death is waiting for us. A man in Connemara said one time to a friend of mine, ‘Beidh muid sínte siar,’ a duirt sé, ‘cúig mhilliúin blain déag faoin chré’ – We’ll be lying down in the earth for about fifteen million years, and we have a short exposure. I feel that when you recognize that death is on its way, it is a great liberation, because it means that you can in some way feel the call to live everything that is within you. One of the greatest sins is the unlived life, not to allow yourself to become chief executive of the project you call your life, to have a reverence always for the immensity that is inside of you.

The Greatest Sin Is A Life Un-Lived

“A Blessing of Solitude” – John O’Donohue

 Thoughts From Rev. Katie M. Ladd

With all that is going on in the world, I thought of this poem by John O’Donohue. Found in his book “Anam Cara” in the section “One of the Greatest Sins is the Unlived Life,” he writes:

“The shape of each soul is different. There is a secret destiny for each person. When you endeavor to repeat what others have done or force yourself into a preset mold, you betray your individuality. We need to return to the solitude within, to find again the dream that lies at the hearth of the soul. We need to feel the dream with the wonder of a child approaching a threshold of discovery. When we rediscover our childlike nature, we enter into a world of gentle possibility. Consequently, we will find ourselves more frequently at that place, at the place of ease, delight, and celebration. The false burdens fall away. We come into rhythm with ourselves. Our clay shape gradually learns to walk beautifully on this magnificent earth” (124-125).

To help us find that “world of gentle possibility” and to help our clay shapes “walk beautifully on this magnificent earth,” he gives us this poem:

A Blessing of Solitude
-John O’Donohue

May you recognize in your life the presence, power, and light of your soul.
May you realize that you are never alone,
that your soul in its brightness and belonging connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe.
May you have respect for you own individuality and difference.
May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique, that
you have a special destiny here,
that behind the facade of your life there is something
beautiful, good, and eternal happening.
May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride,
and expectation with which God sees you in every moment.

United States Institute Of peace

USIP Brings Together Experts and Practitioners in Peacebuilding to:

  • Identify the best ways to counter violent extremism and promote religious tolerance.
  • Develop practical tools to improve the rule of law in chaotic environments after violent conflict.
  • Rigorously test approaches to conflict prevention and peacebuilding to ensure the U.S. is using the most constructive and cost-effective tools to protect U.S. interests without violence.
  • Use traditional media, social networking, and emerging technologies to track, prevent, and resolve violent conflict.

There are Many many many individuals and organizations working on bringing about a less hostile more peaceful world.

Pink for peace can be instrumental in filling the gaps and bringing together all these individuals and organizations because we operate on one simple principle.  Help people instill more peace in their personal lives. This in turn will filter out to those they associate with. So this will create Friends and Family Groups that will be sharing their message in ever increasing circles of people they come in contact with. All these ever growing groups living in peace will one day overlap and fill the voids between all the peace organizations in the world. Thus creating a powerful unified voice for peace the rest of the world will no longer be able to ignore.

Start your new life of peace today.

We Elected Them…

I Voted

    That’s right We All Elected Them. In The United States we elect people to the Federal Government, State and Local governments. But what is all to often is the case the majority of us never express our thoughts about any current issue. Or any issue that we feel is unjust and needs addressed.

We elect these people to represent us. So why do we never share our views with the people that can actually do something to make changes? Seems futile to complain about how an issue comes out when we done nothing to help influence the out come.

I am not up on a band wagon here pointing a guiltless finger at everyone else. I am just as guilty as most are,  who voice there concerns to the TV , friend or loved one. But never take the extra step to get my views to the place where they can be heard and maybe influence an out come.

Take the time to have a look at yourself the next time a big national event or issue has everybody talking about it. If you are feeling very passionate about the issue and it involves something that your representatives in the government will or should be involved in. Send them an e-mail and express your views on the issue to them.

After you do, You will feel a sense of satisfaction because you will no longer be standing on the sidelines. You will be involved in the solution. You do not have to take my word for it. TRY IT. and you will see for yourself.

Satisfaction brings happiness and happiness brings more peace to each of us.

The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing.

A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping it to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits.

Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy.

Pink is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity.

Personality Color Pink

If Your Favorite Color is Pink:

If pink is your favorite color, you are loving, kind, generous and sensitive to the needs of others.

You are friendly and approachable with a warmth and softness others are drawn to.

You are the nurturers of the world – you love to give nurturing and to receive nurturing in return.

With a personality color pink, you have a maternal instinct, with a need to protect and take care of others. You also have a need for this caring to be reciprocated as you do tend to neglect yourself in your determination to take care of the needs of others.

Peace is not the absence of conflict.

“Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.” – Unknown

This quote means that there will always be conflicting issues and only through how we deal with our everyday problems can we find true peace
Avoiding every problem is impossible. Eventually you will have to face them head on. Once you have effaced your issues, can you truly fin an inner sanctuary. It’s not entirely about facing your problems but infact how you deal with them. If somebody were to start an argument with you, sure you could argue back with yelling and make matters worse, or you could try and calm this person down. Understand their side of the story and try to explain yours, peacefully. There’s enough violence in this world alone. We don’t need to add to it
