“If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another”
– Tenzin Gyatso The 14th Dalai Lama
It is not something we think of – how to live in peace. Maybe we are completely unable to do so because we hold grudges, have irrational thoughts and beliefs or can’t see past the end of our nose.
Fear is a very powerful motivator. We fear those who are not like us because they are different. Maybe they speak a different language, wear different clothes or pray to a different god.
Imagine, instead knowing nothing but war, if a generation grew up knowing nothing but peace in their lifetime.
Those who work for peace should be held in the highest regards, knowing what they are working for benefits us all.
We have it within us all to change the path we are on and to live a life of peace.
