I have selected a target in America that is especially in need of peace right now. When you tune in to today’s show, I’ll reveal the target and walk you through our 10-minute intention.  You’ll be joining in with people around the world.

 

Peace means sharing resources

To  give you some idea about what kind of mindset to bring to today’s intention, here’s a bit more about what else is going on to mark the International Day of Peace. 

The theme this year is ‘Sustainable Peace for a Sustainable Future,’ and the purpose is for all the countries to renew their political commitment to long-term sustainable development and growth.  

The UN recognizes that most modern conflict is a fight over ever more scarce resource, whether water, wood, oil, gold or diamonds and that a critical path to peace is managing our natural resources.  

It invites each of us to think about how we can contribute to in some way to ensuring that natural resources are managed in a sustainable way, so that we can start on a path to peace.  

Here’s Secretary General’s Ban Ki-moon’s message:

‘On the International Day of Peace, the United Nations calls for a complete cessation of hostilities around the world.

‘We also ask people everywhere to observe a minute of silence, at noon local time, to honour the victims – those who have lost their lives, and those who survived but must now cope with trauma and pain.
‘Armed conflicts attack the very pillars of sustainable development.

‘Natural resources must be used for the benefit of society, not to finance wars.

‘Children should be in school, not recruited into armies.

‘National budgets should focus on building human capacity, not deadly weapons.

‘On the International Day of Peace, I call on combatants around the world to find peaceful solutions to their conflicts.’

Those words also apply more than ever to America, particularly during this ever more combative and polarized election time.  

For this Peace America Intention Experiment, I call upon people of all political parties to find a peaceful solution to their disagreements, to understand that beneath the difference of our means, we share common ends: a desire for a peaceful, prosperous, unified community. 

Let’s all call for a complete cessation of political hostilities, for this day and here on in to November and beyond.

After you’ve signed in, click on the link to the web broadcast— even an hour before the experiment is due to begin. You’ll be shown lots of images of the place in America we’ve targeted for a special intention for peace.  

You’ll be told to hold a particular intention for 10 minutes.  Music will also play during that time.  

At the end of the 10 minutes, the music will stop and the images will change to signal that the Intention Experiment is over. Our GaiamTV web team will automatically handle everything for you.

Then join me and all our participants on our community site:  http://community.theintentionexperiment.com.  Tell us about your own experiences and messages for peace.

And remember:  a peaceful America begins in your own heart, with your own actions and intentions.
