In a time of nuclear attack threats, The Nobel Peace Prize 2017 was awarded last week to International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground-breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons.”
While bestowing the honor, which was first awarded in 1901, to ICAN alone will not solve the dangers of nuclear force, it’s a big step for creating awareness to the crisis at stake. While global organizations can help shape policy and build bridges, everyone can participate in bringing more peace and spiritual understanding to the forefront. The barometer of peace must be raised each and every day.
Wars have been around for eons, but so has the power of peace. And, you don’t have to be a past Nobel Peace Prize winner like Mother Teresa, President Jimmy Carter, Martin Luther King, Jr., or Henry Kissenger, to share your own gift of peace. Look around, at any moment, we all have opportunities to be kind, to care and to love. In doing so, we collectively have the ability to raise the vibrational good of peace.
Alfred Nobel, the man for whom the peace award is named, once said, “for the greatest benefit mankind.”
We all have the potential to be great.
Love and light,
