What Is Peace?

Peace

On Christmas Day, after a fun and fulfilling time with family, I took the opportunity to decompress.   I had just concluded a long and hectic week at work, right into and the hustle and bustle of the holidays and a cantoring commitment.  A little peace was a welcome respite. 🙂  Just a little bit … is that too much to ask?

During my decompress, the following video “shows up” in my Facebook newsfeed, thanks to my friend, Mark.

The effect on me was profound.  Don’t ask me why, it just was.  Let’s just say, I was not planning on reaching out for a tissue box.  (Well, my shirt actually did just fine, thank you).

Tips for Watching the Peace Video

A few tips for you to get maximum value out of the Peace video.

Peace

1.  Listening to the audio with headphones is recommended.

2.  “Expand” the video and watch it in full screen mode.

3.  Give it your full attention, the video is almost 9 minutes long.  If you’re busy, save your viewing for when you have some reflection time.

4. I transcribed the text for your convenience below. It would probably be best to read it AFTER you watch the video.

Are you ready for some inspiration?

Presenting …

… the Peace video that Kosi, the originator, titled “I Had A Dream.”

===== Transcription Begin =====

I dreamed I met…
an Angel of God.

Not sure what to say…
I asked, “Do you have time for a question?”
The Angel smiled.
“I don’t have any time…
all I have is Now.”

I smiled and asked…
“What amazes you most about humans?”
The Angel replied.

“You long for Peace…
and are at war with yourself.”

“You seek Freedom…
and you are already Free.”

“You look for Love…
and you are Love itself.”

“You are afraid to open your heart…
and your Heart is Always Open.”

“You fear death…
and you are Eternal Life.”

The Angel held my hand
and we were silent for awhile.

Then the Angel looked deep in my eyes…
and whispered these secrets…

“When you stop the war inside…
you are the Peace outside.”

“When you fully open to your fear…
you can see fear is simply Energy.”

“When you meet death fully…
you will see you are the Life.”

“When you are naked to yourself…
you are Free to Be Yourself.”

“Look deep within your Heart…
and you will see YOU ARE LOVE.”

“Forgive yourself so completely…
your very presence Forgives.”

“Live this moment so fully…
you are Free as Freedom itself.”

Love yourself so deeply…
when you see another…
you see God.”

Overwhelmed with Love…
I whispered, “I am so deeply Grateful.”

“Is there anything else you’d like to say before you go?”

The Angel smiled.

“All I have is Now…
And Now is ALWAYS here.”

“Peace is…
Alive within You.”

“You are Silence Supreme.”

“This Silence is…
Peace on Earth.”

“This is the End…
and the Beginning.”

Peace.
