WHERE WORLD PEACE STARTS…
The experience of world peace begins within, with our experience of our own inner peace, and this begins with our allowing of “what is” – choosing to know ourselves as whole and perfect, as we are.
How we feel about ourselves, is how we feel about others. It is how we feel about our world. To the extent that we know ourselves as perfect and whole, we will experience our world as perfect and whole.
This is not hard to understand. We perceive our world through the lens of our inner feelings and thoughts – through our beliefs about our self. If we are feeling good about ourselves, we feel good about our world.
And the great news is, we can cultivate our experience of inner peace. We can practice choosing experiences that help us remember ourselves as whole and perfect, as we are. In this choosing, is the beginning of choosing to know the world as perfect and whole, as it is, and in this is peace.

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. | ALBERT EINSTEIN
Peace in the world is a dream, an impossible dream that I so deeply and profoundly wish for. I do know, though, that as long as we remain in the human condition, peace can only be localized, never universal. This though does not stop me wishing and dreaming, dreaming of peace in the world…And that peace begins within.

Peace is based on a mutal understanding and appreciation of some basic common values. If one group of people lacks these basic values, they can easily threaten the whole foundation for peace.
For the first time in my lifetime, I am aware of a significant group of people who doesn’t accept peace as a value but rather openly opposes peace on global grounds. Spreading fear as a tactic to make people defensive, the oldest trick of any warmonger or perpetrator ever. Still works well, because people are so terrified, by fear, being tricked into thinking that if only they remove the one thing that scares them, they won’t feel fear anymore.
Instead they could learn to use fear as an energy that unites all those who value humanity. Peace is only possible if mankind remembers its innate quality of human behavior. Respect and high esteem for any other life.
It seems to me that while on a large scale the world is very slowly outgrowing dividing factors of mankind such as race, religion, nationality, boarders, conventions etc. it might just be that this process is happening a little bit too slow to solve the current threat on world peace.
Faith in kindness and love proves to be the best weapon of all in the fight for peace.

Peace is not something you wish for, it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away. | ROBERT FULGHUM
