When I lift my vibration into Peace and Harmony, all are lifted with me. With this awareness comes great responsibility: I am a Peace steward of all humanity, of all Life. Eternal Peace is my natural state. I joyfully and easily share it with all, and fulfill my Divine Purpose in the world.
What is my divine purpose in this world? I am not sure I know, but being a peace steward and working to bring more peace and harmony into the world feels very worthwhile to me. To this end, learning how to lift my vibrations into peace and harmony is a prerequisite to sharing this with others. One way that works for me is to ground myself in the natural world. As I look out at the ocean before me, I can see that Mother is still alive and well, in spite of the injuries from man’s touch. When I simply gaze at the waves, see the sparkles from the sunlight, and feel the windy air all around us, my filters slip away, and I become a part of the grand vista surrounding me. My vibrations lift into harmony, no thinking, just experiencing Life.
It is letting go; of the need to describe, to name, to keep myself separated from reality. It is letting go of the need to think, to approve or disapprove. When I let go, I become a drop in the ocean of Peace. I become a Peace steward.

Day 38 Peace – Mary
I’m going to be full of quotations from others today, but sometimes that’s how I live my life. If we sentient beings have been on this lovely planet for uncountable eons, then maybe “I” have never actually had an original thought. Here’s a little story that was written in a Christmas card years ago. It seemed more than appropriate for today’s Guiding Thought.
“Tell me the weight of a snowflake”, a coal mouse asked a wild dove.
“Nothing more than nothing” was the answer.
“In that case, let me tell you a marvelous story”, said the coal mouse.
“I was sitting on the branch of a fir when it began to snow. Not heavily, not in a raging blizzard, no. Just like in a dream, without any violence.
Having nothing better to do I counted the snowflakes settling on my branch. Their number was exactly 3,741,952. When the next snowflake fell – nothing more than nothing – the branch broke.”
The dove considered to be an authority on the matter since Noah’s time, thought about the story and finally replied:
“Perhaps there is only one person’s voice lacking for Peace to come about in the world.”
Perhaps if we keep supporting these Guiding Thoughts, perhaps if we keep raising our voices in any and all arenas we find ourselves in (like the snowflakes, without any violence) we’ll ultimately add that one person’s voice lacking. As the Guiding Thought says, “When I lift my vibration into Peace and Harmony, all are lifted with me.” So let us all assume the responsibility of being Peace stewards.
In Buddhist teachings one translation of the Bodhisattva vow is:
“For as long as space remains
And as long as sentient beings remain
Until then may I too remain
To dispel the suffering of all beings”.
This vow seems so daunting, hopeless, impossible. We may never accomplish this goal, but, as Louis Armstrong sings, “I think to myself, what a wonderful world.”
Journey of Peace – Day 38 – Lita
When I lift my vibration into Peace and Harmony, all are lifted with me. With this awareness…
Consent stands out for me with today’s reflections. Whatever I do requires my consent whether it be conscious or unconscious. It is the conscious part of me which handles the responsibility related to the outcome of what it is that I consent to.
It is finally here, this sound healing workshop I have been writing about and telling those closest to me, for months now. I may have been one of the first to sign up for this event a good six or seven months ago. The event is sold out and I am amidst 500+ individuals in a sound container for the sole purpose of having our vibrations lifted. So here we are, all of us having given our consent to be the bigger and better strands of our humanity.
The facilitator is very clear to state that we will be changed from this event, taken to a higher realm. His admonition is that we are not to do anything drastic for at least 21 days. The new lenses by which we will be looking at and experiencing reality will be different that those back at home, work, important relationships, etc. Our responsibility is to the meter and measure of re-entry.
I know it is that we are not dumbing back down, shrinking from our expanded state; it is in the figuring out how to safely and kindly bring this vibration into our every-day world. We consented to do this work. The message here is to stay light, not heavy and strident.
How synchronistic it is then that an actual component of this workshop is our exposure to a transcendent field of knowledge: The Resplendent Sphere of Blissful Liberation. Go figure! I give my consent to be a Steward of Peace and the Universe gives a wink and a nod back: I am on the right track.
