The BetterWorld Book
Do One Thing for a better world ... Together we make a world of difference

9. Time Out For Peace

"I remind myself of the power of thought
and how it's my obligation as a citizen
(and student) of humanity to propel compassion."
-- Alyssa Milano

Every word we speak and every action we make has the potential to change the direction of a relationship. Every moment is an opportunity to build bonds for a better world. The key is to be able to step back and monitor the things we say and do.

Whenever we feel overwhelmed by the amount that needs to be done, or caught up in a moment of anger, we need to take time out for peace of mind.

For some, prayer or meditation will be the way to refocus and remember our higher purpose. Simply stopping for a moment and taking a deep breath and counting to ten, is sometimes all that we need to pull us out of a situation so that we can pause, and refocus and restore the balance of purpose and direction.

When a moment is carrying your thoughts and emotions somewhere you don't want to go, stop, take a deep breath and slowly whisper "May Peace Prevail On Earth" a few times. This simple phrase will center you, and remind you that you are never alone in your wish for a better world. At any moment many others are sharing this universal wish all across the globe.
