You've spent two days being energized by external power sources that inspire you, and you've transmitted that inspiration into acts of care, concern, warmth, and love. Please take time to consider how it felt to YOU to be kind and compassionate. Where do these feelings exist? Our hope is that you see that these powerful feelings exist inside of you. And while they may have been inspired by external sources of compassionate power, the feelings generated are uniquely yours.
That being said, your mission today, Ambassadors of Compassion, is to begin the process of consistently looking within yourself for sources of compassionate energy. This is not to say that external sources are not important; they most certainly are. But when you learn to nurture your internal source of compassionate energy, that resource becomes easily renewable. It's always available and will never run out.
To complete today's mission, treat yourself with compassion by doing something loving for yourself. Do this in a way that allows you to appreciate your gifts, while listening for that inner voice that tells you why you are unique and beautiful. (Secret Agent Tip: Sometimes you can hear that voice better if you imagine you are listening to a child!)
Remember, should your actions or those of any of the Ambassadors of Compassion be exposed, it will increase the positive ripple effect of creating a kinder world. As such, we again ask you to report your activities on theCompassion Report Map!
Good luck, Ambassadors.
(To help children get the gist of today's mission, it's important for them to understand how good it feels to complete acts of kindness. Have them talk about how it felt to complete their acts of kindness the last two days, and see if they can identify other times in their lives in which they felt good because of doing something nice. Then help them connect these positive feelings to having more "energy" to do more things. To complete the mission, help them identify something good they can do for themselves today.)
The Casady Peace Team promoted viewing Belief-4-Peace One Day at home or at the Casady Wing. At the Casady Wing the Peace Team facilitator encouraged participants to Walk the Butterfly Garden Labyrinth and had seedlings donated by the Oklahoma Forestry Department to give away. The hope is that the seedlings will be planted on Peace Day 9/21 and to report its planting to the ENO Online Program to add our Oklahoma seedlings planting to the numbers of trees being planted around the world on PEACE DAY. Lemonade and popcorn were provided.
