To bring peace to the Earth, strive to make your own life peaceful - Buddha
World Peace Day is Saturday, September 21. A newly released app is encouraging people to practice peace on a regular basis, as well as connect with others who have positive intentions towards creating peace.
The Peace App ($2.99) helps put the power of collective thoughts and positive intentions towards creating peace.
Users can choose from a variety of methods and activities to bring about peace in their own lives, including intentional thought, prayer, yoga, meditation, or movement. The app provides imagery and music to go with each activity. Users can also upload their own images to make the experience their own.
What makes this app unique is the ability to practice each activity with others around the world. The app includes a Community section so you can connect with others around the world that are also practicing peace. The Peace App uses Google Maps and you can view people's profiles and add them as friends to intend peace together.
Overall, I think this is a great app for those who believe in the power of intentions and want to have an interactive way to practice peace.
And the best thing is that Minerva Endeavors, Inc., creators of The Peace App, is donating 10 percent of sales to help teach vets with PTSD and soon-to-be-released prisoners mindfulness, yoga, and meditation—helping to reduce conflict and bring the peace efforts full circle.
