Feeling for Peace

Feeling for Peace

Deepak Chopraís seven-day program for peace suggests a simple practice for each day centered on the theme of making peace real, one step at a time, in your personal life. If you would like to be more peaceful, or want a more peaceful world, here is the practice for Tuesday.

Tuesday: Feeling for peace

This is the day to experience the emotions of peace. The emotions of peace are compassion, understanding, and love.

Compassion is the feeling of shared suffering. When you feel someone elseís suffering, understanding is born.

Understanding is the knowledge that suffering is shared by everyone. When you understand that you arenít alone in your suffering, there is the birth of love.

When there is love there is the opportunity for peace.

As you practice, observe a stranger some time during your day. Silently say to yourself, This person is just like me. Like me, this person has experienced joy and sorrow, despair and hope, fear and love. Like me, this person has people in his or her life who deeply care for and love him or her. Like me, this personís life is impermanent and will one day end. This personís peace is as important as my peace. I want peace, harmony, laughter, and love in his or her life and the life of all beings.
