Seven Practices of Peace
Health & Wellness Community | Peace is the Way

(taken from Peace is the Way, by Deepak Chopra)

1. Sunday: Being for Peace

Today take five minutes to meditate for peace. Put your attention on your heart and inwardly repeat these four words: Peace, Harmony, Laughter, Love☺

2. Monday: Thinking for Peace

Today introduce the Intention of peace in your thoughts. Take a few moments of silence, then repeat this prayer: LET ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY, LOVED & PEACEFUL. LET THE WHOLE WORLD EXPERIENCE THESE THINGS.

3. Tuesday: Feeling for Peace

Today is the day to experience the emotions of peace. The emotions of peace are COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING and LOVE☺

4. Wednesday: Speaking for Peace

Today, the purpose of speaking is to create happiness in the listener. Have this intention: Today every word I utter will be chosen consciously. I will REFRAIN from complaints, condemnation and criticism.

5. Thursday: Acting for Peace

Today is the day to help someone in need. Help can take many forms. Tell yourself: Today I will offer help without asking for gratitude or recognition☺

6. Friday: Creating for Peace

Today, come up with at least one creative idea to resolve a conflict, either in your personal life or your family circle or among friends. Try to create trust & eliminate hidden hostility & suspicion- the two great enemies of peace.

7. Saturday: Sharing for Peace

Today, share your practice of peacemaking with two people. As more of us participate in this sharing, our practice will expand into a critical mass - reaching many instead of a few.
