World Peace Meditation for 8-19-20


On this day I dedicate myself to peace on Earth.

I accept myself without harsh judgment and express appreciation for my individuality.

I live without fear and meet the events of this day with confidence.

I accept others without prejudice and experience a sense of unity with all people.

In harmony with myself, my life and all others, live this day with a peaceful mind, a peaceful heart and a peaceful spirit.


WORLD PEACE PRAYER

By Rev. Duke Tufty


If this resonates with you, you might take 15 – 20 minutes to bask in the beauty and truth of this affirmative prayer. Let us all accept this truth as our own and fan the flame of its expression in our hearts. 


                                                                    Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 9-2-20


I live and move and have my being in God. God made me out of Its own Self, Its own Substance. There is no place where I end and God begins – there is no place where God ends and I begin. There is only the One Life expressing in an infinitude of beings, and I am one of them. So are you. So is your mother, so is your son, so is your friend, and so is the one you cannot yet call “friend”. So is every living being. That means we cannot wish harm to another without wishing it for ourselves. We cannot wish ANYTHING for another without wishing it for ourselves. Likewise, we cannot intend any experience of good, of joy, of peace for ourselves without intending it for all living beings. Let us, therefore, stop sending mixed signals to the Universe - no more ill wishes for ANYONE, regardless of what we perceive their intentions to be! Let us intend only Peace, affirm only Peace, accept only Peace and live only Peace.

If this resonates with you, please take 15 – 20 minutes to sit with these thoughts. Let them sink in – into your mind, your heart, and your soul – until you feel the Peace, until you ARE the Peace, until you radiate the Peace.

                                                                    Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 9-9-20


In many faith traditions, children are taught that “There is no spot where God is not”, and yet we all forget. Today, close your eyes and imagine the biggest “thing” we know about, the Universe. See its enormity, its vastness, its light and color, and feel yourself at the center of it, knowing there is no corner of the universe where God is not. Now imagine the smallest thing you can believe in, say, the sub-atomic Higgs boson, a particle also known as the “God particle”, and feel the presence of God there, as well.


This is a reminder that we do not need to “seek” God, because we are immersed in It, and since God is Peace, we are immersed in and inseparable from infinite peace. We cannot create peace because it is already everywhere, but our task, should we choose to accept it, is to reveal, expose, uncover, and real-ize peace. What covers it up? What blinds us to its presence? Is it war, famine, or poverty? No. What blinds us to peace is man-made. It is ideas, illusions of “you” and “me”, “us” and “them”, “here” and “there”, “OTHER”. How can we dispel these illusions and experience peace? By embracing and realizing the Truth: there is no OTHER; we are one, one life, one love, one essence. So our charge today is to bring this truth into our hearts so fully that it spills over and illuminates our homes, our communities, our nations, and our world.


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes in the silence to take these words into your mind, heart and consciousness, then, if you choose to accept the charge, go out and BE the peace you seek in the world.


                                                                    Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 9-16-20


Peace within me; peace around me.


I begin this day by calming my mind and centering myself through prayer. Finding a quiet place for a moment of solace, I relax into the process of connecting with my God-center, the I AM of me. With eyes closed and heart open, I rest. In the stillness, there are no outer distractions. Soon I am in alignment with infinite peace deep within me. I am at peace. I AM peace.


As I stay in this healing abode of peace, I sense the stirring of something new: a more active peace; an inner strength that is dynamic and present in the world, not separate from it. From this sacred center at the core of my being, I engage with life and fulfill my purpose in new and satisfying ways. Peace restores and energizes me to do what is mine to do.


Peace within me; peace around me.


~ Daily Word


If this resonates with you, you might take 15 – 20 minutes to sit in the silence at the center of your being and allow these words to restore and energize you, then go out and BE PEACE.

World Peace Meditation for 9-23-20


These words by Sufi poet Rumi speak to a sense of oneness and harmony among all beings: “Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrongdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” When news from throughout the world seems less than harmonious, I reaffirm to myself that peace is possible.


In a quiet, prayerful moment, I affirm words of truth: One with all beings, I radiate peace to the world. I let these tranquil words sink deeply into my being and reflect on what they mean to me. I completely embody peace, for peace is my true nature. I am one with all beings. My peaceful thoughts, words, and actions support my relationships with all people and help to create a world that works for everyone.


If this resonates with you, I invite you to take 15-20 minutes to sit with these words, envision that field and then go there!

World Peace Meditation for 9-30-20


 Mahatma Gandhi said:


Your beliefs become your thoughts

Your thoughts become your words

Your words become your actions

Your actions become your habits

Your habits become your values

Your values become your destiny


Let us therefore, establish and maintain a steadfast belief in

world peace as the natural state of the human race.


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit in

the silence and root this belief in the deepest part of your

consciousness, knowing that this action reveals the peace

at your core. In this way, you throw a pebble into the pond

of human awareness whose ripples will spread and expand.

World Peace Meditation for 10-7-20


Peace on earth does not mean one universal government, one universal culture, one universal religion.


It means one universal heart, one universal life, one universal mind that encompasses, recognizes, and honors all governments, all cultures, all religions, and in which all governments, all cultures and all religions recognize, honor, and respect all others as unique, but not separate. 


This is universal love, expressing in a multitude of forms, each unique and valuable, each aware of its true nature of peace and oneness. This is harmony in every heart.


If this resonates with you, I invite you to take 15 – 20 minutes to sit in this possibility. Let harmony arise in your inner world and watch it spread across your life, your neighborhood, and the planet.


                                                                    Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 10-14-20


What we think determines what we experience, and humans think not in words but in pictures, so here is a picture for your minds today:


Think of a place where peace is not evident, the first on Earth that you think of is the one to choose. Now see that place filled with the pink light of love, surrounding and suffusing every person, every building, every square inch of land. Know that you are sending that love, with your whole heart, and that your love will be met with that of others, some there, some here, some you don’t even know about. Know also that this love eradicates fear, which eradicates hate, and leaves only peace - pure, unadulterated peace. Imagine how powerful it would be if we chose the whole planet as the target of this vision!


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minute for this silent exercise. Sit in it until that pink light fills you to overflowing and colors your day with peace.


                                                                    Love and blessings,

                                                                 PEACE

                                                                 People

~Tina Crumpacker


Ms. Crumpacker nailed it for me! If this resonates with you, I invite you to take 

15 – 20 minutes to sit with this acronym and its expansion – let it expand your heart, your mind, and your outlook. Allow it to be your impetus in creating

peace in our society and in our world.

World Peace Meditation for 11-4-20


Today we focus on light as the symbol for our meditation. Light has been used as a symbol for life, for love, for understanding, and for God Itself for as long as people have used symbols. It is a powerful and moving symbol because it IS energy in motion – light never stand still. By its very nature it is constantly expanding and it travels without effort for years. We know this because we have watched a candle flicker, seen a searchlight’s beam, and observed the stars in the night sky. Scientists tell us the light we see as stars has traveled for years, sometimes centuries, to reach our eyes, so we can easily accept that light is eternal. Today, as we settle into the silence, let us repeat, silently or aloud these words:


I see the eternal light of God,

I know the unlimited light of understanding,

I feel the unconditional light of love,

I am the infinite light of peace.


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes and let each word, each phrase, resonate within your center until you truly radiate the light of peace.

World Peace Meditation for 11-11-20


What is peace? Peace is an inner calm, suffused with an ineffable and awesome joy. It comes from a conscious awareness of the presence of God in, through, around and as all life. It can be experienced anywhere, at any time. It happens when we release the illusion of separation and remember the Truth – that we are all One life. Imagine that Truth in every heart on Earth.


If this resonates with you, please give yourself the gift of 15-20 minutes to sit with these words. Allow all illusion to fade and experience the peace that TRULY passes all understanding.

                                        

                                                                    Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 11-18-20


Ernest Holmes liked to say that the Universe was a Divine mathematical equation:


1 Life = God Life = ALL life = my life


I found myself adapting this into a conscious breathing meditation:


                                                           Breathing in:      One

                                                           Breathing out:   Life

                                                           Breathing in:      God

                                                           Breathing out:   Life

                                                           Breathing in:      My

                                                           Breathing out:   Life

                                                           Breathing in:      ALL

                                                           Breathing out:   Life


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit in this silent exercise. Notice that your breathing becomes deep and easy as you relax into the Oneness that is Peace.

                                        

                                                                    Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 11-25-20


What separates us is the differences we perceive, but Truth is universal and there is a golden thread of Truth that runs through every tradition. It shows up on every spiritual path, clothed in the language of that path, but it is ALWAYS there. This golden thread is in every one of us, and if we found it, we could wrap it on the loom of our consciousness and weave it together with a Namaste outlook to produce a golden tapestry of peace that would enfold all people, the whole planet, the whole universe in light, love, and harmony.


If this resonates with you, you might sit a while in the silence and find your strand of this golden thread – then start weaving!

World Peace Meditation for 12-2-20


CSL Minister, Rev. Dr. Chris Michaels, once told me that his dream was to address the General Assembly of the United Nations. His message to them would consist of only three words: WAR IS OBSOLETE! It seems to me we have seen in recent times ample evidence of the truth of this statement.


War solves NOTHING. It causes pain, inflicts damage, and promotes hate, but it solves nothing. War can no longer be justified (if ever it could) as a means to peace. We must look to a new method of international, national, and personal interaction. We must find in ourselves the center of divinity incarnated as the essence of every human being and we mus allow that to be the basis of all human intercourse.


We know that there is only one life, the Life of God, and that it fills the universe as the only animating force in it. That means the very same life is in you that is in me, the very same life is in Democrats that is in Republicans, the very same life is in Ukrainians that is in Russians, Syrians, French and American, the very same life that is in Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and atheists. Imagine how hard it would be to have a war if you always saw your own life in your opponent.


Today, I invite you to spend 15-20 minutes allowing this truth to saturate your awareness, to feel its irresistible power, and then, when you have it in your full consciousness, I invite you to spend one day on the following exercise: in every encounter with another person, whether in person, over the phone, in the media, or in your own mind, choose to see that person’s face as a mirror of your own. Now I ask you, how could you respond with anything but peace and love?


                                                                    Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 12-9-20


In this peace that holds me so gently I find strength and

protection from all fear or anxiety.


It is the peace of God in which I feel the love of a Holy Presence.


I am so conscious of this love, this protection, that every sense of

fear slips away from me as mist fades in the morning light.


I see good in everything, God personified in all people, Life

manifest in every event.


Spirit is not separate from persons or events; I see that It unites

everything with Itself, vitalizing all with the energy of Its own

being, creating everything through Its own divine imagination,

surrounding everything with peace and quiet and calm.


I am one with this deep, abiding peace.


I know that all is well.


-Ernest Holmes & Raymond Charles Barker, Richer Living


I invite you to take 15 – 20 minutes to sit with these words in the silence. Allow them to fill you will an awareness of the peace that is your nature. When all people feel peace within themselves, it MUST manifest among them, too.


                                                         Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 12-16-20


“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”


This quote from Black Elk of the Oglala tribe is the essence of our goal – to bring peace on earth, one heart at a time. If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit with these words in the silence and feel the center of the universe in your own heart.


                                                         Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 12-23-20


One cannot know peace until one can BE peace.

One cannot be peace until one can SEE peace, 

not as one sees a rose, 

soft and pink and glowing, an object beheld, 

but as one sees love. 

That is, one must see with the eyes of peace,

 eyes that can behold only peace, only love, only truth. 

 At that point, of course, there will be nothing to see but peace, 

nothing to be but peace, 

nothing to know but peace.


If this resonates with you, this Christmas Adam, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit with these words, let them absorb your mind, your heart, your eyes, SEE peace and then BE peace.


   Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 12-30-20


I know there is but One Mind, which is the mind of God, in which all people live and move and have their being.

I know there is a divine pattern for humanity and within this pattern there is infinite harmony and peace, cooperation, unity, and mutual helpfulness.

I know that the mind of humankind, being one with the mind of God, shall discover the method, the way, and the means best fitted to permit the flow of Divine Love between individuals and nations.

Thus harmony, peace, cooperation, unity, and mutual helpfulness are experienced by all.

I know there will be a free interchange of ideas, of cultures, of spiritual concepts, of ethics, of educational systems and scientific discoveries – for all good belongs to all alike.

I know that, because Divine mind has created us all, we are bound together in on infinite and perfect unity.

I know that all people and all nations will remain individual but unified for the common purpose of promoting peace, happiness, harmony, and prosperity.

I know that deep within each person the Divine Pattern of perfect peace is already implanted.

I now declare that in each person and in leaders of thought everywhere this Divine Pattern moves into action and form, to the end that all nations and all people will live together in peace, harmony, and prosperity forever.

And so it is.


If this resonates with you, please take 15 – 20 minutes to bask in the beauty and truth of this affirmative prayer, written by Ernest Holmes in 1927. Let us all accept this truth as our own and fan the flame of its expression in our hearts.

Happy New Year!

As I consider what we can do to reveal World peace, these thoughts came to me:


Perform Every Action Centered Entirely in God.

Practice Eternal Awareness Constantly Evolving as God.

Perceive Each Attitude’s Calm Expression of God.


PEACE in God

PEACE as God

PEACE of God


If this resonates with you, you might take 15 – 20 minutes to sit with these words. Let them resonate within you. Let them be the meditation of your heart today.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”


Ernest Holmes said, “Faith means a conviction about something that is stronger than anything which may appear to deny it.”


Jesus said,” If there is faith in you even as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, move away from here, and it will move away; and nothing would prevail over you.” MATT 17:20


Have you ever seen a mustard seed? It is about the size of a 12-font period “.”; surely anyone can muster up that much faith in the possibility of revealing Peace on Earth!


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit in the 

silence with these words and visualize that tiny seed of faith in your consciousness, nurture it with love and water it with faith – feel the

peace blossom in your heart and spread across the globe.


   Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 1-20-21


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. proclaimed “Darkness cannot conquer darkness, only light can do that. Hatred cannot conquer hatred, only love can do that.” In addition, I believe that war cannot conquer warfare, only peace can do that.

Darkness, of itself, has no substance, it is only that which remains when we turn away from light, although light always exists. Hatred, of itself, has no substance, it is only that which remains when we cannot feel love – although love is never absent. War, of itself, has no existence, it is only that which remains when we suppress the peace that is always at the core of our being. Let us make a commitment, each individual, to live in a constant awareness of the truth of light, love, and peace as eternal verities, as the essence of all life, and as the only acceptable possibility for our world.

If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit in silence with these words. Let them fill your heart and consciousness with the presence of the only Truth – light, love, and peace are the essence of life.

                                                                  Perceive

                                                                  Each

                                                                  Atom

                                                                  Connected

                                                                  Eternally


Science of Mind teaches, and quantum physics confirms, that every atom is connected in some way with every other atom. Every part of me is connected to the entire universe, to the trees, the mountains, the oceans, to the sun and moon and the stars, and to every part of you! We are all expressions, manifestations of the same energy. The forms are different, the appearances vary, but the essence is the same. This is the definition of oneness, and the only condition for peace is an awareness of that oneness.


Please take 15-20 minutes to sit in this awareness and feel your connection to all that is – you are a part of the stars and the planets, connected to all animals and plants and people – in that connection is the source and the experience of perfect and lasting peace. Soak it in and spread it around.

In the movie “Avatar” there is a greeting that expresses the nature, and the naturalness, of peace. The people of that distant planet knew themselves as one life, one organism, one Truth, so whenever two people met, their greeting was, “I see you.” When we can live in that unshakable sense of Oneness, when we no longer need to remind ourselves that there is no place where God ends and we start, no place where we end and God starts, then we, too, will greet each other with this acknowledgement: I SEE you, and peace will be fully, completely, irrevocably revealed on Earth.


If this resonates with you, if you SEE its truth, please take 15 – 20 minutes to sit in the silence and contemplate our Oneness, to SEE yourself, then observe how you begin to SEE others. I SEE you!


   Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 2-10-21


Perhaps we fail to experience peace because we expect it to appear in a vacuum – no activity, no noise, no distractions. Consider the whales who live peacefully in the ocean – they are always moving; they sing and dance through the waves, and yet they are at peace. Perhaps we could be more like whales, moving with the waves of life, singing our gratitude for nature and for life, joyful in just being. Surely, such a heart would be at peace. Surely, such peace would be infectious. Why not give it a try?


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sing the whales’ song in your own heart and mind, and then watch the waves of peace ripple out.


   Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 2-17-21


A hologram is a picture that is composed of a multitude of miniatures of itself. That is, if you shatter a holographic slide and then examine the shards, each one will contain the entire image. This phenomenon appears frequently in nature – in the crystalline structure of stones, in the growth pattern of ferns, in the structure of a conch shell, etc. Of course, we know that Nature is another name for God, so we are not surprised to realize that this term can be applied to humans, as well – we are holograms of God!


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit silently and absorb this delightful fact: all that God is IS in you, and in every living being, so we are absolutely one. Now contemplate this question: as we are one life how could we not be at peace, in Peace, which is the nature of God, which is our nature?


   Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 2-24-21


I believe we experience the Presence of God and our oneness with it, and therefore with one another, through our human consciousness. I also believe that every person has a unique and personal spiritual path that leads him/her to that experience of oneness. No two paths are identical, though many overlap, and each one is necessary, valid, sacred, and real.


One of the most common images we use to represent God is white light. For our meditation today, we will use this image, together with the physical laws of light to bring ourselves into a clearer and more powerful awareness of our oneness with God and with one another, that is, into a conscious awareness of peace. When you shine white light (God essence) through a prism (human consciousness), a dazzling array of colors, infinite in number, and absolutely unique, both visible and invisible, is created (our individual spiritual paths). 


If this resonates with you, please take a few moments to visualize this beautiful manifestation and imagine each color as a spirit moving towards the prism, joining with all of the other colors to pass through the prism into a perfect experience of oneness and peace. Now take 15 -20 minutes to let this experience flood your being. Let it absorb your attention until you feel it as the essence of who you are. Namaste.

World Peace Meditation for 3-3-21


Where God is recognized, there is life.

Where the power of God is realized, there is action.

Where the goodness of God is acknowledged, there is peace.


Today we are invited take action by sitting for 15-20 minutes with these thoughts, acknowledging that God is omnipresent, and all-good, and basking in the peace we feel now and the assurance of world peace being revealed.

World Peace Meditation for 3-10-21


God is Peace. God is the loom upon which this universal tapestry of peace is woven, the warp and the woof and the shuttle and the thread. God is also the weaver who sends the shuttle zipping through the loom, and I am one of the irreplaceable patterns in Its beautiful tapestry. My pattern is essential to the entire tapestry, essential to the peace of planet earth. My pattern is my consciousness, the thoughts I hold in heart and mind, and I commit to keeping them focused on love because peace is love in action. I choose to be love in action. I choose to see, to feel, to know peace from the very center of my being to the outer limits of my life.


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit with these words, let them soak into your center and radiate out into your world as peace.

World Peace Meditation for 3-17-21


World Peace is an observable phenomenon in the same way that the Milky Way is an observable phenomenon. The Milky Way exists and is visible only because of the millions of stars and planets that give it form and substance and shape. World Peace exists and is made manifest only because of the millions of peace-filled human hearts and minds that give it presence and expression. No single person can manifest world peace alone, but each heart lit with love and peace becomes a point of light in the galaxy manifesting as World Peace.


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit with this idea and light your own star, let your own peace catch fire and shine, so that its glow ignites a consciousness that knows only peace, and see the galaxy of World Peace expand.

World Peace has been the goal and prayer of truth seekers and teachers for millennia, as demonstrated by this poem by Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, called, “If There Is To Be Peace”:


If there is to be peace on earth,

There must be peace among nations.

If there is to be peace among nations,

There must be peace among cities.

If there is to be peace among cities,

There must be peace in the neighborhoods,

If there is to be peace in the neighborhoods,

There must be peace in the home.

If there is to be peace in the home,

There must be peace in the heart.


Realizing that we must let peace blossom in our hearts in order to let it blossom in race consciousness, we focus our time today on allowing the eternal Presence within to express as peace that suffuses our whole being, that becomes our full focus, that is our essence. If this resonates with you, please take 15 – 20 minutes to invite this experience into your heart. Take hold of it, let it take hold of you, and let it be your Truth.

Today’s meditation is inspired by the Gandhi blessing and the traditional Metta blessing:


May I have air to breath – clean, clear and abundant.

May I have food to eat – pure, wholesome and healthy.

May I have family to love – joyful, gracious and extended.

May I have work to do – worthwhile, satisfying and appreciated.

May I know beauty, music, laughter and reverence in every experience.


May you have air to breath – clean, clear and abundant.

May you have food to eat – pure, wholesome and healthy.

May you have family to love – joyful, gracious and extended.

May you have work to do – worthwhile, satisfying and appreciated.

May you know beauty, music, laughter and reverence in every experience.


May all have air to breath – clean, clear and abundant.

May all have food to eat – pure, wholesome and healthy.

May all have family to love – joyful, gracious and extended.

May all have work to do – worthwhile, satisfying and appreciated.

May all know beauty, music, laughter and reverence in every experience.


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit in the silence with these words and feel the peace that is the inevitable result of their embodiment.

I am declaring today to be Global Oneness Day, so we focus our attention on world peace through recognizing, realizing and celebrating oneness:


There is only one Presence, one Power, one Truth in the Universe and it is all God.

The Presence is Light.

The Power is Love.

The Truth is Peace.

The Light guides me,

The Love empowers me,

And Peace is my nature, the nature of all life and it is ours now.


There is only one Life, God’s life. That life is perfect. That life is my life. That life is all life.

One life.

God life.

My life.

All life.


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to experience these words until Oneness becomes a part of your consciousness, until you can feel yourself embodying Oneness. Know that by doing this, we raise the consciousness of the entire human Race in Oneness as well.

Gandhi said, “We must be the change we wish to see in the world. “

Ancient Hopis said, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”


Both statements have the ring of truth, so our exercise for this week is to see ourselves as the ones who are bringing world peace back into manifestation.


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit with these thoughts. Allow your inner vision to behold your true essence as a bringer of peace, a bearer of peace, a being of peace, and then let that vision drive your thoughts, words, and actions this week.

World Peace Meditation for 4-21-21


When the topic is world peace, we frequently hear the question, “What can I do, I’m only one person?” and it stops us in our tracks. What we need to understand is that peace is not something to DO, it is something to BE. What we ARE speaks much more loudly than what we say, and since it expresses what we believe, it determines what we experience in our lives. So here’s the assignment for this week: les us make a commitment to BE peace, to hold it in our heart of hearts and at the front of our attention and then relax and observe our experience. How hard could it be? All we have to do is release resentment, resistance, and fear, then all sense of separation disappears and in the oneness that remains, only peace is possible!


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit with this assignment and try it on for size – it will fit, and the longer you wear it, the more comfortable and natural it will feel.

   Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 4-28-21


Peace is one of the attributes of God. We are expressions of God. Therefore, peace is an attribute of every human being. So, why do we not experience peace? It’s because we don’t allow ourselves to recognize peace as our essence – we do not, in our human busyness, allow ourselves to be present to the peace that is our nature. So today’s exercise is a bit different – today we tithe our presence to that which feeds our spirit, the essence of peace within each of us. Tithing is defined as giving one tenth back to Source, and today we make it the first tenth: set a timer and gift yourself the first six minutes of each hour you are awake today to sit silently in the presence of peace that always lives at the center of your being. Your day will be magical – and the world will be changed. Let world peace be revealed!

What separates us is the differences we perceive, but Truth is universal and there is a golden thread of Truth that runs through every tradition. It shows up on every spiritual path, clothed in the language of that path, but it is ALWAYS there. This golden thread is in every one of us, and if we found it, we could wrap it on the loom of our consciousness and weave it together with a Namaste outlook to produce a golden tapestry of peace that would enfold all people, the whole planet, the whole universe in light, love, and harmony.


If this resonates with you, I invite you to sit a while in the silence and find your strand of this golden thread – then start weaving!

World Peace Meditation for 5-12-21


I have a mind and a body and emotions, but I am not my mind, I am not my body, I am not my emotions. Just as God expresses Its essence through the forms that fill the universe, I express my essence through my mind, my body, and my emotions. I use my mind to perceive the world, I use my body to interact with the world and I use my emotions to feel the human atmosphere of the world. But the essence of who I am, the spirit that animates my body, that perceives through my mind, that recognizes Truth through my emotions is as infinite and eternal as God – it IS God and it lives in the field discovered by Rumi, beyond judgments of right and wrong, in perfect balance, harmony and oneness. As my mind perceives this balance, as my conscious awareness of this Truth expands, my emotions grasp the joy of oneness and bring it into this present moment, and my mind, my body and my emotions are flooded with perfect peace. This is the seed of world peace, planted in every human heart, waiting to be watered with love and nurtured with awareness, to blossom as joy.


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit with these words and let them resonate with your mind, body and emotions – feel the oneness and the peace.

World Peace Meditation for 5-19-21


Divine love encircles the world, flowing from heart to heat as peace. At the deepest level of creation, all beings are seeking peace. Underneath the outer shell of every human being beats a heart created in pure love. I pray from this consciousness, visualizing all people connecting with their divine selves and acting from that sacred place.


I envision the world enveloped in peace and wrapped in a warm, flowing channel of divine love. In gratitude, I affirm: Divine love is flowing, connecting, and healing the world and everyone in it. I, too, act upon my inner divinity, recognizing that every word I speak and every action I take can be done in peaceful, loving, and faith-filled ways. Divine love flows from my heart to bless the world.


If this resonates with your heart, please take 15 – 20 minutes to immerse yourself in the flow and feel yourself opening to the peace and love that are the nature of life.

Peace is my job,

This simple mantra can change the world. If it resonates with you, please take 15 – 20 minutes to sit in the silence and let this mantra resonate within you, watch it flow into and transform your inner landscape – it must then also transform your outer landscape and the world.

There is a famous photograph of the Earth that was taken from far out in space. It is called the Blue Marble, and most of us have seen it more than once. It show a shining ball of deep blue, brilliant green and warm brown, all of it wreathed in misty white clouds.

There are no boundaries visible except between the water and the land. There is no separation visible except between the water and the land, and somehow, looking at it, we know that separation is illusory, since the water just covers part of the land – the land is

also underneath the water, supporting it. We see only the wholeness, the beauty, and the peace that are the nature of our planet. Let us hold that picture in our hearts, pull our focus back from nations, wars, difference and separation, and allow peace to surface in our hearts and minds – it must then also surface in our experience and in our world.

If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit with this image until it takes root in your heart and in your consciousness, until you feel its essential perfection in your own being.

 Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 6-16-21


I believe compassion is the perfect embodiment of Oneness, the most complete expression of realizing that there is only one Life, so here is our meditation for today:


When I have food, may I remember the hungry;

When I have work, may I remember the jobless;

When I have a warm home, may I remember the homeless;

When I am without pain, may I remember those who suffer;

And remembering, may I release my complacency and bestir my compassion.

May I be concerned enough to help, by word and deed, those who cry out for what I take for granted.


Remembering that “May I” is not a request, but the setting of an intention, please take these words into your heart and sit with them in the silence for 15 – 20 minutes, so that they can become a part of your own consciousness. As part of your consciousness, they will change your actions, your life, and the world!


 Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 6-23-21


There is an ancient Sanskrit greeting, NAMASTE (nah-muh-stay), which means “The Divine in me recognizes and honors the Divine in you.” This is the very definition of Oneness, which is another name for Peace. The Namaste outlook never fails to foster peace – especially if you start by applying it to yourself! Look in the mirror and offer yourself a heart-felt NAMASTE; it will carry over into the rest of your day and change how you see everyone and everything; it will prime you for peace!


If this resonates with you, please take 15 -20 minutes to let this recognition of the Divine permeate your consciousness. Let it shift your perception. Let it light your day. Namaste.


 Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

Violence is the physical outpicturing of fear.

Fear is the emotional outpicturing of a belief in the illusion of separation.


Let us dispel the illusion of separation by embodying the Truth of Oneness,

and Peace will be revealed, recognized, and real-ized.


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to take these thoughts

into your consciousness and allow them to become your own. As we dispel

our individual belief in separation, we raise the consciousness of the human

race to that of Oneness, and peace happens.


 Love and blessings,

Today I am sharing one of the most eloquent pleas for peace written in modern times, the lyrics to John Lennon’s greatest hit, “Imagine”:


Imagine there's no heaven

It's easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky

Imagine all the people living for today


Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people living life in peace

You, you may say

I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will be as one


Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people sharing all the world


You, you may say

I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will live as one.


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit with these

words (singing IS allowed) and remember that what we can imagine,

we can achieve.

Today’s meditation is of the mindfulness style. I invite you to take a

moment or two to sit quietly, focusing on your breath. Breathe in a

slow, steady, calm rhythm. When your breath is settled, begin to

chant these words silently in rhythm with your breath:


                                                             Inhale: God is

                                                             Exhale: life


                                                             Inhale: God is

                                                             Exhale: love


                                                             Inhale: God is

                                                             Exhale: peace


                                                             Inhale: I am

                                                             Exhale: life


                                                             Inhale: I am

                                                             Exhale: love


                                                            Inhale: I am

                                                            Exhale: peace


                                                            Inhale: All is

                                                            Exhale: life


                                                            Inhale: All is

                                                            Exhale: love


                                                           Inhale: All is

                                                           Exhale: peace


Repeat this three times, then settle into the silence for a few

minutes until you feel the life, love and peace in, through and

as your being, then allow yourself to live as peace this day.

flavor.

The illusion that Peace is missing is caused by a belief in the lie of separation. When we believe we are separate one from another, we can imagine that one can be harmed without harming all, and Peace is hidden behind the fear of being the one who is harmed. The solution is simple – we remove the illusion by re-minding ourselves of the Truth:


God’s Life

                       Is my life

                                            Is all life

                                                                Is One life


This is the Truth behind all truth – and when we embrace it, when we return to its vibration, the illusions that obscure Peace in a fog of fear cannot be sustained.


If this resonates with you, you could take 15 – 20 minutes to chant this Truth, silently or aloud, until you feel the connection, the oneness, the Peace.


 Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 8-11-21


What makes a computer program work is its underlying algorithm, the set of steps that determine the outcome, so here is an algorithm for revealing your inner peace:


1. Practice releasing fear (false evidence appearing real)

2. Expect perfect outcomes always

3. Accept the abundance of the Universe as yours

4. Choose to see the perfection in every experience

5. Extend your love to every person, place, and thing you encounter


These five simple steps, repeated until they become habit, and then a natural part of life, bring out a flow of grace that harmonizes the world around you. I invite you to give them a chance, as the song says, and see what happens!

 Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 8-18-21


On December 31, 1994, I took part in an international celebration called PIPN, which stood for Peace Is Possible Now. I believe it is time to change the definition. For me it became Peace Is Personal Now, which has become Peace Is Present Now, which means, in truth, Peace Is Now. We need only shift our awareness a tiny bit to move from the possibility of peace to the experience of peace, and then to the expression of peace. Today let us make the commitment to shift into peace, remembering we can shift as often as necessary, until it becomes, not just our natural state, but also our ‘normal’ state. Let us come in peace, go in peace, BE in peace!


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit with these thoughts until they become the song your heart sings with each beat.


 Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

World Peace Meditation for 8-25-21


Namaskar is the familiar or intimate form of Namaste. Namaste is a Sanskrit term that means, “The divine at the core of me greets and honors the divine at the core of you.” Namaskar, being more intimate, can be interpreted as, “There is only divinity in me and it beholds only divinity in you, and honors it.”


When we truly perceive that we live in a universe designed by God, on a planet created by God out of love, peopled by God with expressions of love, we live Namaskar. When we live from a Namaskar heart, a Namaskar consciousness, we cannot conceive of the absence of peace, let alone experience it.


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to contemplate this idea, let it take root and blossom in your heart. Namaskar!


 Love and blessings,

World Peace Meditation for 9-1-21


Peace is an inside job, so world peace starts in every individual heart and consciousness:

I am an agent of Peace in this world, an agent of love, an agent of life, an agent of light in this world.


This is my purpose, and my promise, and my gift. I hold this truth in my heart and it is the light that shows me the path to follow. By this light I see the truth of Oneness as I see peace for every being, I feel peace in every being, I know peace hear and now, limitless and eternal for every being.


If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit with these words until you feel your own vibration rising to meet the peace in every heart around the world.

 Love and blessings,

Rev. Sharri

PEACE


Performing

Every

Action

Consciously

Engaged


When we are not conscious of the Divine in ourselves and in

everyone and everything around us, we live on auto-pilot, acting

from habit, reflex, or ego, and the result is the extension of the

illusion of separation. When we learn to be conscious, fully present

in each moment, we act from the center of our being, in the

conscious awareness of the central Truth of all existence: God is all

there is, eternally expressing in infinite and unique ways – and

EVERY person, place and thing is part of It. In this awareness, we

cannot accept the illusion of separation – we KNOW our oneness, at

the cellular level, at the atomic level, at the sub-atomic level – we

are One and peace is our Nature, our environment, our very

atmosphere.

If this resonates with you, you might take 15-20 minutes to sit with

these words, absorb their message, and real-ize their truth in your

consciousness.

                                                      Love and blessings,

Peace is the effect of relaxing into Divine Presence,

realizing wholeness as our nature,

recognizing Oneness as the Truth of who we are.


That’s all there is to it. Permanent peace is that simple – AND that easy.


You need only activate it in your own heart, and the effect WILL spread, unstoppably.


If this resonates with you, please take 15-20 minutes to sit with this message, relaxing into it, feeling the natural flow, embodying its Truth.


                                                      Love and blessings,

                                                                Rev. Sharri
