"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.

We Often Create Our Enemies

By threatening or killing those who oppose us, rather than listening to and reasoning with them, we often create our enemies, enemies angrily seeking revenge.

No-One Is Born A Terrorist

Each baby is beautiful and a blessing to us all. Terrorism is nurtured by poverty, hopelessness, fear and a desire for revenge. It is born of our action or inaction, as a blessing becomes a curse.

Wars Cannot Be Fought

Wars cannot be fought without the participation of all those precious young lives so readily sacrificed by those in power.

Threats

Threats don't bring peace, they bring fear and anger. The wise approach, the one seldom followed, is to sit down with one's adversary to find out why he feels as he does, and what we can do to resolve our differences. This is the way of peace, peace by peaceful means.

"The War On Terror"

"The War On Terror is a contradiction in terms. To go to war is to attack someone. What does that make us to him?"

Which Choice Shall We Make?

We can fight and kill as we have always done or we can love and bring joy to the world, fulfilling our purpose. Which choice shall we make?

A Journey For Peace

A journey for peace must start within ourselves, for each of us has the power to offer the world turmoil or peace.

Peace

Peace for you and me is not so much a global issue but a personal one for peace begins with our thoughts and actions.

The Way To Peace

Changing The World

Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have.

Margaret Mead (1901 - 1978) (Cultural Anthropologist, Prominent Author and Speaker)

Celebrate Diversity

We come in many colors, creeds, religions and nationalities. Instead of fearing our diversity, let's celebrate it and celebrate our oneness with each other.

Peace Is Not Merely A Distant Goal

Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929 - 1968) (Preeminent Civil Rights and Peace Leader)

"Soft" Power

‘I am here to make the case for strengthening our capacity to use “soft” power and for better integrating it with “hard” power… Military success is not sufficient to win: economic development, institution-building and the  rule of law, promoting internal reconciliation, good governance, providing basic services to the people, training and equipping indigenous military and police forces, strategic communications, and more of these, along with security, are essential ingredients for long-term success…”

Robert Gates (Former U.S. Secretary of Defense)

History

History is largely about political leaders and wars. Instead, let us record acts of compassion, peace and love, for they are the hopes and aspirations of all mankind.

Peace Within Ourselves

As a nation, we cannot offer the world peace until we can find it within ourselves.

Stick With Love

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

Martin Luther King, Jr (1929 - 1968) (Preeminent Civil Rights and Peace Leader)

The Eternal Truth

The eternal truth is that we are all one with each other. To harm others is to harm oneself, to love others is to love oneself. In the circle of life, as you sow, you shall reap.

The Difference Love Can Make

“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.”

Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929 - 1968) (Preeminent Civil Rights and Peace Leader)
