We know — and you can ask any Native American, American’s have rarely been peaceful in their empirical expansions and I’m quite sure they are not God‘s “chosen ones”.
The oft used term “Manifest Destiny” has been mistakenly used by many over the decades with little to no understanding of its true roots. That being said, I propose we hijack the term, redefine it as a procurement of peace, and make it our own.
When you break each word down by their definitions you will see the importance and power of these two little words in relation to peace.
something to which a person or thing is destined <wants to control his own destiny>: a predetermined course of events often held to be an irresistible power

So, how can we “manifest” peace as our “destiny” in the world around us?
If we “manifest” peace in out daily lives as individuals, it will be readily perceived, recognized, and understood by those around us. And, if we make peace our “destiny” then we predetermine the course of not just our own lives, but also the lives of others by way of the Law of Attraction and Karma. Even if you are not quite feeling it yet, there is power in “doing”.

For one, pass this peace post on to others; “Re-blog” it, “Share” it, “Like” it, Tweet” it, “Stumble” it, “Digg” it and so on. Social media is the quickest and most effective way to spread any message in today’s digital world. When you are on FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or any other social forums and you see negative posts and talk, simply drop a “peace bomb” and exit. Let your actions speak louder than their words.

I believe this. I believe the internet and its condensed conversations have not only allowed us, but has taught us to speak in snippets which are often snippy with one another. These snippy snippets do not breed peace, but we do have the power to change the world one post at a time so pass the peace post and watch a new kind of “Manifest Destiny” take hold.
