Why am I here?

Peace is important to us all.
We all want peace.

But at the same time it is also such an abstract concept.

I am an activist who likes to see things happen.
I don't mean, manning the barricades, done that - been there.
I went through many years wanting to burn and kill and shoot

No it is time for us all to stop talking and awaken ourselves.

To look at very action every word and see what we, in ourselves, are spreading.
There are people I know who 'get angry' about the lack of peace
Who get angry at the politicians
And what happens
Anger is what is shared
And nothing comes from anger except violence and conflict.

Once upon a time a very wise individual coined the phrase 'Love your Neighbour'
What a radical concept!
Love someone outside your own family
Oh, shocking.

For me this is where Peace starts.

From Love
From Opening the Heart to others
From a space of giving.

And this, for me, is the beginning

Not the endless intellectuality and pontification, which us men are so good at.

No, peace has to surface from our heads and into our hearts
To feel

And as we do so
Let the tears flow from feeling so much.
Allow the anger and hatred, which lies in us all.
To pour out, shout it to the wind
Scream and shout all the desperation and despair

And then from that emptiness the heart can start to speak.

And when the heart speaks.
No-one can ignore the words

When the heart speaks
It comes with Wisdom
And power
and strength

And this is what will create peace
When we are all speaking from our heart
When we can truly feel and love our neighbors

We are getting closer
