Thinking has power when it is backed by intention. Today, introduce the intention of peace in your thoughts. Take a few moments of silence, and then repeat this ancient prayer:
Let me be loved, let me be happy, let me be peaceful.
Let my friends be happy, loved and peaceful.
Let my perceived enemies be happy, loved and peaceful.
Let all beings be happy, loved and peaceful.
Let the whole world experience these things.
Any time during the day if you are overshadowed by fear or anger, repeat these intentions. Use this prayer to get back on center
