THE ROAD TO PEACE
The concept of peace is as nebulous as the concept of justice in today's world. Some governments seek peace for their country by voraciously acquiring implements of warfare, in the misguided notion that having the weapons would help to fend off would-be attackers. Others seek peace by waging war against those whom they view as being opposed to peace. The road to peace does not meander through a war zone. If we claim to desire peace, yet all of our related thoughts, words and actions are about war, then clearly there is a disconnect in our definition of peace.
Peace is a natural result of thinking thoughts of peace, seeing others as being just as desirous of having peace as you are, and acting in a manner that facilitates peaceful engagement. Our governments will be forced into peaceful engagement when citizens of their country and of other countries begin to hold them accountable for misguided and unnecessary acts of aggression that decimate the lives and livelihood of entire countries. The world will begin to experience peace when people of the world recognize that peace begins in each of our hearts, and that we each must personally embrace peace in order for a peaceful world to manifest.
