An Enlarged Vision

“I envision the best for myself and for others.  I intentionally behold the innate beauty in the faces and hearts of people around me.  I value the unique expressions of divine life.  I honor our differences while appreciating our oneness.

“I enlarge my vision to include peace and prosperity for everyone.  I open to a world of positive possibilities and expect the manifestation of all that is good”.

These beautiful words come from the March 17 devotional of The Daily Word.  I was particularily struck by how these words could actually be used as a prayer for peace.  So for those of you, dear readers, that believe or desire to see our world become more humane in its treatment of others, please feel free to write down these words on a separate card and use them as a daily affirmation in your life. 

When we pray for others the same prayer includes goodness for ourselves.  I sense that as an individual living in todays cultural and societal challenges we need to focus more prayers and attention to how we are treating each other.  The media in their selfish greed to appeal to the lowest base of human nature has been very successful in creating the picture of man’s actions lower then any other animal on our planet.  And we have bought into this demeaning picture.  I believe it is time for those of us who know better to begin to change this.  One person praying for the benefit of our world has greater impact than you can ever imagine.  So instead of becoming cynical and throwing your hands up in the air and saying “What’s the use” I urge you to be unique and to pray for the goodness of our world.  Be a hero in this life instead of a problem.  In the quietness of your own heart and the privacy of your own home you can change the world.  Believe it when I tell you — it only takes one!
