The Challenge is actually quite direct.
Each day at 12:00 noon (GMT) you will quietly withdraw from your activities to the extent that you can, to a comfortable and Peaceful location. You will then focus on an area of the world that needs Peace. This Target Area will be suggested on this site. You will completely devote 20 minutes to this process, perhaps setting a timer at first until you develop a second sense for the required duration, which with practice, you will come to feel. You will quiet yourself and including, and especially, your mind. You will not spend this time in thought, working through your Things To Do, nor trying to send messages that you think through and formulate, and consider appropriate, like: "I'm wishing you Peace." Instead, you will simply sit quietly, and cultivate the realization that your energy of Peace and Compassion, is already being transmitted. If you like, you can focus on the sound of your breathing, while quietly saying these two words, "Peace/ Compassion" as you breathe. At times you can shift between that and visualizing the Target Area as it has been given to you, and as you see it for yourself. You will sense this power of transmission increasing in magnitude over time, and with each session. Don't be impatient for it. You will eventually sense how quickly and completely this energy has been transmitted, and exactly to where it is most needed with strikingly specific exactness on the receiving end: Accomplished too simply to believe at first. Focus. See the Target as it should be. Do it. Do not fret about what you think you should or might actually see, hear, feel, or otherwise experience, including tears. Return to your breathing, the two words, and seeing the Target. Just realize that, yes, you are doing this. You are actually, really, doing this, and are responsible for it, and desirous and passionate for it. Each day. Do not make yourself suffer if you miss a day, or the correct start time. Simply come back to it. Sense also that you are doing this with others like you, at the same time, in increasing numbers, and that you are adding to this enormous, real, irresistable energy to Send Them Peace.
And that is all. Bombs Away.
That is The Challenge.
If, as you participate in The Challenge, you do not need a Guided Meditation, but would still like a 20 Minute Timer, click here. When you do, the timer will load in a new page and sound a bell/ cymbal/ tingsha as the page opens, and again at 20 minutes. To download this timer: when it is not running, right-click on it after its page has opened, and select "Save As ..." placing it where you decide on your computer.
