I just wrote a page and a half of mantras to meditate on daily. If I get to a point where I feel like they are manifest in my life, I will write new mantras.
One of my affirmations is this:
I love balance.
One of the truths upon which I meditate is this:
The Universe seeks balance. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
These declarations made me wonder.
If the Universe seeks balance, does American gluttony provide the need for African poverty? Does European formality provide the need for Middle Eastern barbarism? Do the actions of one society produce reactions in other societies? If we all lived somewhere in the middle, might the world perfect itself?
I think the answer to all of those questions is yes.
"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin in me."
