World Peace. Inspirational

The explanation may seem evident and repetitive but we don't have Peace in the world, not only for obvious reasons such as violence, selfishness, ambition and arrogance. There is a more subtle one, which may be uncertain for some and inexplicable or absurd for others. The lack of Peace in the world is not only in the world but is also in the man, who contends against nature and who also confuses and often uses the name of God as a weapon. This exposition is not meant to be criticism just trying to relate, that if we forget the importance of the elements in nature and the importance of its inhabitants then. The issue is so simple tragic and absurd as to ask fruits to a withered tree, when we have forgotten to water with tenderness, dedication, sensibility and kindness, the garden, which will provide sustenance. How man is supposed to be satiated when he does not have inner peace, when there is no serenity among men, or friendship does not exist ? Everything alive and beautiful is used in such a manner, that offends its inner value. A flower is not a flower. The water is not water, neither the earth, the air, nor life itself. Everything has become a hideous play that uses innocence and charm. And corrupts by manipulating them, instead of looking for the final objective of Peace and Love. The mind of man weakens, then, he believes all lies and becomes addicted and dependent upon power and glory without any concern for the bloodshed. Life did not have this objective, the purpose was not that of pressure, exhaustion or becoming inflamed as fire, rather was and must be, praise, prayer and charity. The sea, the earth, the air, the fire, the wood, the metal, have been subjugated by man and not only this, but in his foolish eagerness, he has tied down his neck, his hands, his feet and his heart. Man drowns when he goes into the darkness which is so vast and confusing that makes him lose his sense of reality. There is no Peace in the world because there is no Peace in the heart and there is no Peace in the heart because we don't look for Peace in life. We attack life in such a way, that there is blood under our feet and in front of our eyes but we don't see it, instead, we have reached a total state of blindness, deceit and neglected heart. To change all this load, which is the load of man and the world, we have to take one step at a time, by consciously realizing that we will become truly rich and powerful when we all, accept that the reason of life is to Love life; and then Peace and Harmony will spring forth from earth, as a seed which brings the secret of eternity.

Dear Oscar,

Thank you for writing about the inter-connection between Inner Peace and Peace in the World. Peace Pilgrim, a lady who walked a pilgrimage for peace for 28 years, (you may read more about her on this site was inspired by the idea that when enough of us would experience inner peace we would have peace in the world.

Love fosters harmony. It has a transformative power that moves and has brought unity to the world from time immemorial.
