Parable of the Good Samaritan

Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite [religious leader], when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan [Samaritans and Jews generally disliked and were suspicious of each other] came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds ... and ... took him to an inn and took care of him. ...
Jesus [said] "Go and do likewise."
- Luke 10:25-37 (The Parable of the Good Samaritan)

How Can It Be?

How can it be that the answer to violence is more violence? This only leads to a long cycle of violence and more suffering. It is not the path to peace.

Things Without Which Humankind Cannot Survive

“When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.” 

Fred Rogers (1928 - 2003) (Creator and Host of "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood)

"Education Of The Heart"

“My hope and wish is that one day, formal education will pay attention to what I call “education of the heart.” Just as we take for granted the need to acquire proficiency in the basic academic subjects, I am hopeful that a time will come when we can take it for granted that children will learn, as part of the curriculum, the indispensability of inner values: love, compassion, justice, and forgiveness.”

The Dalai Lama (Monk, and Global Spiritual Leader)

Peace Will Come

Peace will come when more of us find peace within ourselves, and radiate that inner peace so that even without words, we uplift the lives of others. No inner peace, no outer peace.
