Can you have peace of mind regardless of the world and everybody in it?
Can you rise above the turmoil, go beyond it?
Yes, but it takes effort. I consciously work to be informed just enough to know what is going on in the world, but not to "overdose" on negativity in media etc. I do not have cable, I selectively read media that is not inflammatory and I work hard to focus on the good in people. Media distorts our view of the world, making us see only the bad and that is amplified to where it can be easy to see the world as vile and hopeless.
I get involved with causes that better the world and in whatever small ways I can, I do things daily that bring a bit of happiness to others. Those small acts also make a difference. What we constantly think about and engage in is what manifests in our life. I am conscious to create peace and to be as good of a person as I can. That helps me to see the good in others and to have a lasting sense of peace in a seemingly chaotic world.
I hurt for those who hurt, but I distance myself just enough to not lose empathy, but not be swallowed by feelings of despair.
Yes, if you embrace it and not try to rise above or beyond it. I love this quote:
"Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (Author Unknown)

I think we could use more peace and understanding, less tolerating of governments, political and religious extremists and news media pushing us farther apart. I am suggesting a peace ring where people from around the world do a hub on peace and link together. Thoughts?

What is it that You think God is doing in your community? What would you like God to do?Just asking to see if others can see where God is moving, and what God is doing. How is God working through the church.
