you have do something that you never did”
This is the title of the book Mirela Sula, a highly sought after psychologist from Albania, translated before she joined the Peace Revolution European Fellowship in Belgium, October 2011. Mirela believes that Peace Revolution will be one of the most important institutions for peace all over the world involving young people of every country, race and culture in the mission of PIPO: Peace in Peace Out.
We all need to let go of the stress and negative charges that accumulate during the day. We often carry these around with us like a heavy weight. There are people who endure this stress and are still not willing to care for their mind. They are busy, forget and are unable to bring their awareness within themselves. In fact, our existence cannot be measured by running and doing several tasks at once, sometimes we need a halt! We need to stop, and just be withourselves, turn our attention inwards instead of searching outwards all the time. We have to say, I want to be with myself, I want to come home, I want to feel comfortable with myself. This is the lesson Mirela learnt from Peace Revolution. Peace Revolution allowed her to take back her consciousness and experience an inner revolution that spread to others.
At the Peace Revolution European Fellowship in Belgium(October 2011) she discovered that our minds, more than any other part of us, needs care. It needs to rest and be still. How often do our minds rest in peace, do nothing, and are emptied of all the daily burdens? If we do not meditate, this rarely happens. Mirela explains that through meditation we gently invite our minds to stay inside of ourselves and this is accompanied with peace throughout the day.
She says "At least once a day we need to close our eyes slowly, relax as if we were about to fall asleep. Let our eyelids and eyelashes close gently and sit with a smile on our faces. Then take a deep breath. Breathing in and out several times, so deep as to feel the air-filled lungs to the center point in the stomach and then very slowly breathe out through our nose. And when filled with the spirit imagine that every cell of our body is filled with happiness and joy, and as it frees the spirit, it sends out any negative thinking, stress and problems that we have accumulated in ourself ... "

Just after returning home from the fellowship, she was asked to appear on the popular Albanian TV Channel, Top TV, to be interviewed for the morning show, Wake Up. She used the name of the book: "If you want something that you never had, you have to do something that you never did" to talk about meditation and her experience with Peace Revolution during the online self development program, and the European Fellowship in October.
(Here is a short excerpt of her interview(translated into English). You can see the interview here: http://vimeo.com/31563984)
Journalist: If I ask you what you never did before, what would your answer be?
Mirela:"For the first time I have taken a decision doing something that I never did, through acting, that means I have started a journey to find my inner peace through meditation. What I found was the road that brings your mind home. Finding peace revolution is a special discovery. This international Foundation is offering a great opportunity to all people that want peace. They offer this inner peace in order to achieve outer peace."
I have good news: For people who believe in peace. Meditation is free.
Meditation has impacted Mirela’s life in a very profound way, she is passionate about peace and meditation. She says, "One thing I know for sure - meditation has changed my life 360 degrees for the better."
When asked how her life has changed, she tells this story,“Meditation is helping me to know better myself, my weak and strong points – it helps me have a good relationship with myeslf and other people too. A friend of mine was unemployed, and I invited her to come and work in the company where I was working. But a few months later she moved me out of the way, and took my position. I did not see her after that, I used to think very often 'What I would do if one day I met her again?' Then one day after the retreat in Belgium I saw her - I think she was surprised when she saw me smiling at her and I asked her 'Hello, how are you'. I was surprised too, I felt it was not me - but for sure I felt very good with myself. I realized that she was happy, and that I forgave her. With this I mean that this journey with meditation is significantly changing my life and my perspective for the future. "
Peace Revolution has long been working to raise awareness among people around the world to discover this great wealth within. We only need to look, wait and see how deep the light inside ourselves will guide us towards what we are truly looking for.
