PEACE WITH THE BODY
This includes choosing to take responsibility for your own personal health and to improve the ecology of your personal body just as you would care for the planet. Dr. Cousens recommends exercising aerobically at least three times per week for one-half hour, practicing deep breathing at least once a day (with ten cycles of seven-count in and seven-count out deep breaths), getting sufficient sleep and relaxation, and drinking sufficient pure water.
PEACE WITH THE MIND
Enhance your own inner peace by learning to meditate or pray, and do it on a daily basis. Enhance peace with the planetary mind by thinking positive thoughts and becoming a living-feeling prayer of peace, love, and compassion. Enhance peace with the cosmic mind by trying to begin each thought, word, and action with love, compassion, and peace.
PEACE WITH THE FAMILY
Forgive everybody. Forgiveness ends the negative memory and dispels the energy of conflict. Forgiveness is the blessing of living peace. The power of becoming a feeling prayer of peace is that it allows us to activate the hologram of peace that exists somewhere in every person and in every family, tribe, and culture.
PEACE WITH THE COMMUNITY
Make a point to volunteer or contribute to humanitarian causes and organizations. Check with any local peace center for a list of causes and ways to contribute. Develop your livelihood so that it supports or expresses your personal and planetary peace values. Start this one step at a time. It may take several years, so be patient and persistent.
PEACE WITH ALL CULTURES
Participate in art, music, drama, or other cultural events that inspire and connect you with the eternal values of love, peace, beauty, truth, and the Divine in all. Make peace with your own cultural roots. Ask your parents or grandparents for stories about your cultural origins. Try to find and appreciate the flourishing of peace and joy in all cultures.
PEACE WITH THE ECOLOGY
Become conscious of the ways in which you participate in a global system that draws from natural resources, and recognize how Ego-driven desires for accumulation of material goods, power, wealth, and status have led to an imbalanced distribution of these resources among the beings on this planet. Commit yourself to reflection on your present relationship to ecology, and then strive to ensure your personal material consumption habits, as well as those of your community, your nation, and all of humanity reflect the highest intention to promote a more just relationship with the natural ecology and all beings on the Earth.
PEACE WITH THE DIVINE
Find your own personal way to connect with the Divine every day. Allow yourself to express in the world as the living will and flow of the Divine.
