Each year International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21st September. This is a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and people.
Since its inception, Peace Day has marked our personal and global progress towards peace. Anyone anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, sitting in silent meditation, doing a good deed for someone unknown or reflecting on being more peaceful with those around us. It may involve getting co-workers, organisations or community members engaged in a larger event. Each of us can make a difference. When people throughout the world come together for peace the impact is profound and does make a difference.
A life-changing direction: It is called meditation. In meditation we learn to master ourselves, and as a result we are able to function so much more effectively in the world. Meditation teaches us to pause, to go within, to connect with universal love, and to resurface refreshed and full of potential. Through meditation, we can be free from anxiety. Through meditation, families come together. Through meditation, our office environments change. Through meditation, we can be at peace.
When many of us meditate together with hearts filled with love, unity and peace will come automatically. The source of love is divinity itself, and it is present in all our hearts. On this International Day of Peace, 21st September 2021, let’s harvest that love and together pause for peace. Join us in heartfulness meditation to bring about a peaceful world.
Role of spiritual development in our daily life gives calmness and presence of peace. We need a revolution in our commitment to and practice of universal humanitarian values.
