Topic: Obtaining World-wide Peace

March 12, 2002

Susan Kimsey, TR

Greetings my dear ones. I wish to discuss this topic of peace coming to the planet, peace for the world as a whole. World-wide peace is so fanciful a concept that it can be easily dismissed as a mere pipe dream of those who are not up to the "battle of life." How, indeed, can a planet with such a history of struggle, conflict, greed, despair, and deprivation, reach such a goal of this magnitude? One must first strive to disconnect emotionally from this knowledge of the world's past. A world born anew, a world moving into a new stage of evolution, must see itself as the new being that it truly is. Carrying the painful energies of the past into a peaceful future is not an effective way to bring about such a goal. Each of you, as citizens of the world, must actively choose to let go of the resentments and desires for revenge that so haunt so many souls who reside now on the planet. Those of you who do not carry this sense of revenge and resentment as a personal reference are called upon now to minister to, and support, those who have suffered so in their life here on Urantia. If this consciousness, this awareness of the destructive potential that resides in these energies of resentment and revenge, can be released, then, and only then, comes forth the possibility of new beginnings and a peaceful future for this planet.

How can you then be one who actively participates in this cleansing of your world? You can be one who seeks forgiveness in your own life from those you have offended, and you can offer this forgiveness to those who have offended you. Seek life-giving forgiveness in your soul, just as you desire life-giving health for your body. See forgiveness as this powerful component in your world's salvation. Only through an intentional seeking to develop a forgiving heart will you become one who serves to release your world from the grip of revenge, resentment, and dark retribution for other's sins. Can you understand, my dear ones, how on a worldwide basis this sense of seeking a forgiving heart will bring about the needed change you desire in your world?

With your forgiving heart, then try to imagine the millions of children all over the globe who, on a daily basis, are encouraged to hate. What a sad sight this is to the Father's Eyes, that these young precious souls are encouraged by those they love and trust to develop this resentment, revenge, and desire for retribution in their vulnerable hearts. How quickly this leads to emotions of despair, hatred, and dark cruelty in these young ones. Only when these dear souls are nurtured with concepts of love, kindness for others, and forgiveness for their sufferings and the sufferings of others, will the possibility of a peaceful world move from a fanciful dream into a vibrant reality. Only when you see this task before you as the monumental and essential change that is indeed called for in this world, will you be able to achieve this goal of awakening to a new day in a truly peaceful world. Pray for these little ones, pray for the world to understand how essential it is to give them this new and better perception of leading their lives in peaceful communion with all mankind. Make the choice to serve as a peacemaker for the youth of this world, and you will be making the choice of peace for all, because the present lives of the children predict the path of their futures, and the future of your world.

You who desire to do God's Will, you who desire a peaceful world, you who desire a world of bright hope and new beginnings, must fill your hearts with healing forgiveness, and then minister to the young ones of Urantia. Hold the Master's example in mind. He saw the small children as his valuable treasure. Their trusting innocence represented such a potential for new possibilities. See this potential now on a worldwide basis, and reclaim your planet by cultivating a new generation who carry peace in their minds and hearts. Their destiny will become the world's destiny, and peace will truly reign throughout the world.
