How to promote peace - thoughts of a trainee

Who will rule this world in the end? Many proclaim that they are promoters of peace and democracy??? The facts disagree. Peace will rule only once freedom of the most vulnerable member of society is protected by the rich and powerful around them.

 

Who will then commit to this mammoth task? Is it not only those who are peace themselves already. Those in whom no fear or violance dwell? There is a teaching that teach that like properties unite to survive and transform into that which is only good. Is it not the time to transform into these properties now?

Look at the poor and see a brother and sister please. Ask yourself this, what do I feel when I look at a hungry malnutrient child? To promote peace, give the population healthy food that they can afford to buy. This should be step one and not more millions to weapons and the development of nuclear energy. The classics teach first soup, then soap and only then PEACE.......!

Do you see the human being infront of you? If not, humanity as a whole has a long way to go....

Please join the global peace process in the way that makes the most sense.
