Can we ever fully embody the consciousness of Peace and Compassion? We are living at a time similar to what is spoken of as the 4th Seal in the Book of Revelation, where we are confronted with war, climate change, pandemics, etc. The real question is, in the midst of all this can we maintain a space of inner peace within us ‒ and why should we?
Research in 1995 by Glen Rein, Mike Atkinson and Rollin McCraty has shown that when we feel kindly to others, the immune system is boosted and when our feelings are negative, our immune response is reduced significantly for up to 6 hours. Furthermore, Elizabeth Hoge et al, in 2013, observed the practice of loving-kindness meditation and found that when we act kindly toward others, we produce the enzyme telomerase. Chromosomes have caps of repetitive DNA called telomeres at their ends. Every time cells divide, their telomeres shorten, which eventually prompts them to stop dividing and die. Telomerase stops the breaking off and thus delays our ageing. So, compassion is good for us!
But, if peace within is good for our health, why don’t we strive for peace? Some are trying through what has been called the “Peace Room.” Peace Rooms have been set up throughout the world in which peace experiments are conducted. However, few are aware of these efforts ‒ so what is a Peace Room? It is a place where delegates work together to try to neutralize potential conflict to create space for peace, often boosting interpersonal work with spiritual practices such as mindfulness, meditation and prayer. Many schools and other educational institutions also have established such spaces to provide young minds with the requisite tools to interact with others in a positive and co-operative way.
Of course, learning about peace in groups and special settings is important, but how effective can we truly be in bringing Peace to the world? Each individual is also responsible for developing character and living in great truthfulness, selfless service and compassion. The question we need to ask ourselves is whether we are accepting the responsibility of being better people and being the manifestation of that love in action? People often feel such characteristics are possible only in a future utopian world, but, as an integral part of creation, we can create an environment, internally and externally, wherein Peace can take root and flourish.
According to Drs Hurtak, mentally visualizing peace may also be effective. As cited in Mind Dynamics, experiments in which experienced meditators have focused feelings of peace in specific areas for given periods have resulted in demonstrable reductions in violence and hostility in those areas. By employing an interrupted time-series design with multiple replications, a study has confirmed causality and the efficacy of meditation, even at a distance.
According to The Keys of Enoch®, there is a consciousness field around the planet, and at every moment, we can send it thoughts of peace, harmony, love and compassion. Each of us, in this way, can be the Light and bring in the Light as we engender a consciousness of Peace.
In the end, true Peace is more than simply the absence of war or conflict. Drs Hurtak tell us in their commentary on The Pistis Sophia, that Peace is Power sent from the Holy Spirit, and is not only the manifestation of an external Peace but it is an internal Force too, able to transform both body and mind (PS Bk1:62). Until we experience this indwelling Peace that passes all human understanding, we will not manifest true Peace on this planet and it is up to us to be open to the Holy Spirit and to petition for this inner Peace.
As we bring our hearts and minds together, focusing our thoughts and intention into the consciousness field, let us unify the East and the West in the Spirit of Peace and Compassion as we see the Vibrations of Om Shanti Shalom enfolding our entire planet.
May Peace prevail on Earth.
