We made peace last night. Six insurgents gathered together plotting, planning, building. We blew up ideas. Destroyed limitations and tore down obstacles that would keep us from creating an evening for Summer of Peace to explode.
It was… Fun!
To spend two hours focused on the shared belief that we can make peace. We must make peace. We are making peace.
It made a difference.
This sitting in a circle, connected to others through a shared belief, a common knowing that peace starts here.
At the beginning of the evening, Kerry Parsons, the vision behind the Summer of Peace Calgary 2012 initiative asked each of us to consider, “What would I do if I could multiply my lasting contribution to the well-being of all life? If I could do that, what would it be, my contribution, my vision, my imagining of greatness?”
It made a difference. Opening with possibility. Connecting to the seed of greatness within each of us. Expanding into the limitless realms of ‘what I can do when I quit playing small, quit hiding, quit being the shadow and become my light.’
What would be a grander vision for your life, bigger than you can imagine?
Think about it. If all things were possible. If the stars, the moon, the sun, the universe aligned. If you were who you are born to be. If you trust life to be all it is capable of being, all that it is, what would be possible for you to create to multiply your lasting contribution to all life?
It’s the seed of Summer of Peace.
We don’t know how big, or what will happen with this germ of an idea.
But we are precise in its seed. We are intentional in its planting.
Beyond that, the possibilities are limitless.
We met to plot peace last night. And in the plotting, war ended. Famine stopped. Abuse fell.
In its plotting, I knew peace.
It isn’t that we are doing great things. It is that we are allowing our innate greatness to shine. And as we all shine, the world lights up with out generative brilliance.
Plant a seed of difference today. Let your light shine.
And… if you’re in Calgary, Friday, June 22, come and be part of Drumming Up Peace! Bring your light to the party and let’s create a nuclear reaction of peace!
