One can walk through life-like they are asleep and miss out on all the wonderful things life contains. So many walk through life on automatic pilot and let chance and the will of others direct their lives. I wonder how many visionaries, ambassadors of change and peace we have missed out on because they were sleep walking through life. The fact that happy, friendly and kind people are either ignored or passed up due to this worlds love for the strong and aggressive types doesn’t help matters much. The illusion of one person being greater or superior than another also plays a big part in the suppression of the good-hearted and the dreamers of our age.
Very little can be solved through might and aggression, if peace is achieved through aggression is will be short-lived thing. The greatest victory is the winning of the hearts and minds of the people, If you find a common thread between you and the opposition you can build a bridge of trust and find ways around you differences. Of course this requires effort and the desire for resolution between both parties. Compromises may have to be made, but this can be done in a way which both sides benefit. Peace is always beneficial to all parties involved, no one wants pain and suffering of their own people or the innocent and peace brings about co-operation between even the worst of enemies. Only if both parties would sit down and work towards a mutual understanding of each others positions, will there be a chance for peace and a better world for the future generations to come.
Fear, Anger, mistrust and the misunderstandings between people who are different and diverse in their beliefs and/or goals fuels the ever troublesome acts of aggression within our world today. Tolerance of the differences we have as a species along with focus on the common goal of survival and better standards of living for all should be the main focus of the world leaders and the citizens of the world as well.
Peace is not mealy the absence of war or conflict, it is the presence of tolerance, understanding ,co-operation and compassion.
