I often find myself explaining that what we put our energy into adds to that thing. If I put my thoughts or actions into angrily railing against an injustice, I’ve added anger to that conflict. If I set my mind on compassion and healing for those afflicted and for those broken souls who’ve afflicted others, then I’ve added compassion.
It’s really quite simple: What you think about you create. What you join, you strengthen. What you add to grows.
This is always true.
And therein is the hope, the power, the way . . . the way that you can do something about all the sorrow and pain and wrong in the world right there where you sit and read this blog. Now you can also add your actions or your finances or your written words, but the most important thing to remember is that the starting point for creating good is the thought.
“I will fight” preceeds conflict. “I will love” preceeds healing. Think about that.
And to help you with some thoughts, here is a meditation for planetary healing taken from Meditations to Heal Your Life, by Louise Hay:
I affirm positive solutions for the highest good of all concerned.
There is so much good I can do for the planet on an individual level. At times I may work for causes, putting my physical energy or finances into them. And at other times I may use the power of my thoughts to help heal the planet. If I hear news of a world disaster or acts of senseless violence, I use my mind in a positive way. I know that if I send angry thoughts towards those responsible, then I am not helping to heal. So I immediately surround the whole situation with love and affirm that out of this experience only good will come. I send positive energy and do visualizations, seeing the incident working out as quickly as possible with a solution that is for the best for everyone. I bless the perpetrators with love and affirm that the part of them where love and compassion dwells comes to the surface and that they too are healed. It is only when we are all healed and whole that we will have a healing world to live in.
