Respond to a Situation Peacefully
This exercise is designed to have you consciously bring more peace into the world through a shift in your awareness. The goal is to transform a specific moment of personal anger, frustration, or dissatisfaction you have this week into a peaceful response.
Some examples of this concept in practice include:
- Instead of cursing the driver who cuts you off, smile.
- Instead of yelling at your children, hug them.
- Instead of speaking poorly of someone behind their back, say something nice.
Please note, this is not to say you should repress any of your emotions. To do so would be doing just the opposite of this theme's intent. If you want to scream, curse, or rant, please do so.
In fact, one way to interpret the theme is to forgive yourself if you behave in a negative way.
The lesson here is to recognize how often we are contributing to the existence of negative energy and then to consider and act on how to transform that energy into something positive, thus bringing more peace, love, and kindness into the world.
With connection & warmth,
